Some interesting facts we’ve noticed or learned so far about Philippines: – people have some straaange street food like all kinds of barbecued intestines, duck embryo in an egg (called balot), pigs ears and chicken’s butts. Eat all (the stuff we usually throw away)! – their language Tagalog sounds beautiful and looks like a mix of Indonesian and Spanish. – they like to ‘abuse’ free stuff like wifi so there’s no free wifi in coffee shops or malls. – they love malls! Some say because of air con….

When you come to a new country it’s easiest to notice which people’s habits are different from ours. So here are a few things I’ve noticed so far: – thanakha is yellow color from a special tree and people put it to their cheeks. It makes the skin cooler. Some are really creative and make different patterns like hearts. – betel nut is popular again. Hence the ugly red stains on the streets. And people spitting red, eeew. – most of the people wear a sarong loop. –…

1. Sonicare electric toothbrush I didn’t want to take it at first but one year is a long time without my brush. Best decision ever! Mic agrees. 2. Two ukuleles,flute and harmonica. Need I say more? 🙂

There are things that surprise you in every new country you go to. These are the facts we gathered through the first impression in Indonesia. from what we’ve experienced Indonesians love super soft beds. Back killers! they have the best coffee here. Mic especially likes the Kopi Luwak. when they make coffee, they put coffee in a glass, pour boiling water and mix. Ready to drink! they love green cake. Not sure what this trend is about (I know it’s popular in other Asian countries). So you can…

With us mixing the dates of our departure, we got one whole day in Bangkok 🙂 And that only means more of the delicious thai food. Yum! We started with a bus ride to the floating market. Back then this was the main exchange of goods, now it remains an event. Floating restaurants, very cute! After we got our green papaya salad fix, we went to see the famous Chatuchak weekend market. It’s huge! Westrolled around and seen probably 5% of it. I was squealing at the baby…

One would think that India and Nepal are very alike, being so close to each other. But Nepal is very much different. Dal Bhat is like an Indian thali, but it has less stuff in. All women have nail polish on their toes Every hotel and guesthouse has flipflops in their bathroom (so you don’t have to walk barefoot in the bathroom? I still don’t know.) They don’t like Indians much. They think Indians are loud and don’t care for the enviroment. But that doesn’t stop them wanting…

India is supposed to be a hard country to travel, some even say it’s the most difficult one. Mic was here couple years ago and fell in love with it so it was natural to come back. I always say India has a big personality 🙂 It’s not easy, it’s very loud and crowded but the experience you get is amazing. India test your limits. 5 bad habits of India: honking: unbelievably loud horns without mufflers (not our usual pussy ones in Europe) that push you on the…

We were happy on Neil. So content we didn’t want to leave. Our only worries were how to avoid wild dogs on our way back home (so many of them here!), which fish to choose for lunch and if the tide will be high enough for a romantic swimming at sunset. No internet on Neil. No ATMs on Neil. Not so good if you run out of money. Which we did :/ ”Shiiiiiiiit!” So we scraped our dollars from Sri Lanka, euros from home and we payed the…

Mic said that Bathinda doesn’t really exist. That we fell into some kind of a rabbit hole and that for two days we lived in a parallel world. Time in Bathinda really seemed surreal. First of all, people are not used to European tourists. I think there was an increase in accidents on the motorbikes while we were there. People couldn’t believe their eyes! Secondly, they are super nice. Of course, they wanted to take pictures of us, a lot. Sometimes we had to make an active start…

Bright red, indigo blue, grass green. As I open my eyes, I see ladies already sweeping in front of their shops and men start to gather for their first cup of chai that day. I chew some of my lunch from yesterday as they eat their oily samosas. I slowly get up, stretch my legs and immediately feel that my hair is not in place. I lick it with my long tongue, yes that’s better. What? I can do that, I’m a cow! Cows are being treated quite…
