The wonder of Angkor Wat

Memories of the Past

In a previous life, perhaps I was living in Asia since the connection to this continent is so strong.

After the “shock of arrival” to Asia via Hong Kong in 2003, I started exploring this amazing land – starting with China and ending in Thailand: Macau, Japan, Nepal, Tibet, India, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Malaysia, Singapore and Taiwan.

Each country brings memories of adventure and discovery, friendship and love.

In Cambodia is Angkor Wat – truly impressive, a masterpiece from the past.

Kabukicho RED Light District

The “Sleepless Town” (眠らない街)

“Tokyo’s hidden erotic wonderland is open for business.” – National Geographic

When I arrived first time at the Shinjuku Station in Tokyo, I was lost. 3.64 million passengers pass through the world’s busiest transport hub each day, more than the population of Toronto! Once you find your way out (from over 200 exits), you may head to the famous red light district of Tokyo, Kabukichō – the “Sleepless Town”.

Kabukichō (歌舞伎町)

Your first clue that you are in the area is when you are seeing well dressed young Japanese men with very long hair. You will find them at the main entrances to the Kabukichō red light district, every day and night.

Koh Chang

 Find Your Own Paradise

“We travel, some of us forever, to seek other places, other lives, other souls.” – Anais Nin

Once you don’t have a home can be liberated. Your home is the world! For almost one year I travelled as a digital nomad from one place to another. While in Asia, Bangkok is a good hub to be and plan your trips in Thailand and in the neighbouring countries.

After spending some time in crazy Bangkok, I moved to a remote place on the East side of the Koh Chang Island in Thailand, Baan Talay Thai.

Vienna

What a city, Vienna! It is one of the most tranquil and civilized cities in the world.

Get a glimpse of the imperial grandeur by visiting the Belvedere, Schönbrunn and Hofburg palaces, or just walk through the old city centre starting from the Stephansplatz. The sound of music will follow you: Mozart, Beethoven, Strauss, Liszt, Brahms and many others.

Take a break in one of the beautiful coffee shops, savour Viennese coffee and taste the fresh baked bread. So good! For dinner try the traditional schnitzel with lots of beer.

Lonely Beaches

Koh Mak Island

One hour by speed boat from Koh Chang Island, Koh Mak is a small, beautiful island, only 16 square meters. So wild and undeveloped, that even the Russians from Koh Chang didn’t venture here. But the Germans, Scandinavians and one Canadian – Romanian did, in search of adventure, peacefulness and close to nature living.

Thai Airways

Flying Thai Airways for the first time was “smooth as silk”. Fasten your seat belts and enjoy the flight!

“The First Choice Carrier with Touches of THAI”

THAI Airways has its origins in 1960 as a joint venture between Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) and Thailand’s domestic carrier, Thai Airways Company.

Bangkok Photo Walk

Part of Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Photo Walk, the Bangkok Photo Walk took place around the Hua Lamphong Train Station area of Bangkok, few years ago. The purpose of the walk was to document the life in the Soi’s of Bangkok and to enter the Scott Kelby’s competition.
