When people visit Indonesia, you will find that the majority will have been to Bali. The beauty of this amazing country, however, is more than just Bali. It can be found in the difference of the variety of islands. Meaning that you should to extend your trip beyond the well-known and well travelled island of Bali and head to, among others, Flores, my favorite island in Indonesia. Anybody and everybody that has asked me for travel advice on Indonesia, or South East Asia for that matter, has heard one word, Flores. I spent little over a week on this volcanic, friendly and internet-challenged island with its human eating Komodo dragons and the best dive sites and completely fell in love.

Thakhek Loop and Pakse Loop: The Most Complete Guide to Laos’ Motorcycle Loops with Itinerary (Updated 2019)

The wind is blowing in your neck, your favorite road trip tunes are blasting in your ear and you pass one rice paddy after the other. You’re in the midst of a motorcycle loop somewhere in the countryside of Laos. Giving your bike that extra bit of speed, you realize these Asian bikes do not have any speed limitations. So you have a little fun…70, 80, 90 km’s an hour, oops that might have been a bit too much. Every now and again a beaten old truck passes you, honking because you’re one of the few tourists coming this way. Same goes for the kids living in the local villages, running to the side of the road and waving wildly. Waving back at them, you try to keep the bike straight. Why did they put the throttle on the right side of the steering wheel? That doesn’t matter though because you’re on one of the greatest motorcycle loops in Laos.

How Travel mends a Broken Heart

It happens to the best of us and almost to all of us. This is a topic everyone has an opinion on and advice to give. Today I’m talking about heartbreak. No matter the reason you and your partner broke up, it’s always hard. The heavy feeling on your chest, the tears or the ‘not knowing what to do with yourself’. We’ve been through this before and it might not be the last time. The bad news? It’s not fun, but you’re going to have to go through this. The good news? You are going to get through this and you’ll come out on the other side as a stronger person.

The dream destination for everyone who loves food as much as I do must be Penang in Malaysia. The island with its small UNESCO protected capital, Georgetown, is a mix between different cultures and offers varieties on Indian, Chinese and Malay food. A blend between flavors that you will not soon forget. You can start wandering around and I can guarantee you, most of what you will taste will be absolutely amazing! But what if you’re limited on time and you want to try the best Penang has to offer. Read on for where and what to eat in my Penang Food Guide!

Planning a trip to Japan

3 min read
My up-and-coming trip to Japan was determined by a Jetstar sale. Tickets were only 199 Australian dollars and my work-holiday visa for Australia was coming to an end. I knew I wanted to get closer to a big Asian hub to be able to find a cheap flight home. You read that right, home! After Japan I will (temporarily) be flying back to Belgium. With a couple of stop-overs in Hong Kong and Abu Dhabi of course. Breaking up a long trip like this is something I really enjoy doing and I get to visit a couple of extra countries. Sure it took me six months to get to Australia, but I got here in the end didn’t I?
