Travel : Sukhotai – Thailand

It might be a public secret but I am somewhat of a cultural barbarian… Place me into a jungle (well, ok, if it’s ok with you, I’d rather stay on the edge!) and I can spend hours staring at little animals or waiting for that one bird to appear, but put me into a museum and the change is big…

Pangasius; a look behind the scenes

I’ve been thinking on how to write this blog post for quite some time. After our trip and during our trip in Vietnam there were quite a few negative reactions.

Workshop fish curry in Batak style

During our visit to Toba lake we stayed on Samosir island. The rest of our group was out on a walk but we wanted to do something different, so what else than food right?

Mekong Delta – Vietnam

Going through my old photos from Vietnam I was kind of sorry that I didn’t shoot in raw those days! It would have made such a big difference! But anyway, as a sidenote… I think one of my favorite area’s of Vietnam was definitely the Mekong Delta. Not the cleanest and make sure you don’t accidentally swallow any of the…

Tetebatu – Lombok, Indonesia

Thinking back on our trip around the Sunda islands I think the place that has made the biggest impression was definitely Tetebatu. Possibly not because I was feeling so well at that time…. We had booked our trip during Ramedan. Not really realizing this when we planned and apart from a few stores closing earlier or not opening at all…
