All good things…

“All good things must come to an end.”  I hate that expression. I understand that sooner or later you will have to face reality again but the sound of the saying is so negative. Like you are only allowed to experience X happiness and then it has to be followed by the opposite of happiness. …

Wooloomooloo, Hong Kong 

This is where I had drinks with my former colleague Ash when I first started my journey and it now just happened that I’d booked a hotel that is right next door.  For my last night I therfore had drinks at the roof top bar of Wooloomooloo followed by dinner. Yellowfin Tuna Tartar. Lovely. Yellow…

Celestial Court Chinese Restaurant 

I’m back in Hong Kong, where I started of three months ago. Before going back to Stockholm I wanted some proper Chinese dim sum. I googled and found a couple of recommendations in Time Magazin. Out of convenience I chose the Celestial Court Chinese restaurant at Sheraton Hotel.  I ordered a selection of Dim Sum,…

Banh Mi Phuong, Hoi An   

I was lying on the beach eavesdropping to some people talking about restaurants and where to eat in Hoi An and the way they spoke about Banh Mi Phuong made it impossible not to visit. I made a note of it but got the spelling all wrong but it turned out that did not matter…

Thai Kitchen, Hoi An 

I was recommended to visit the Thai Kitchen while in Hoi An. The Thai Kitchen is located a bit outside the Old Town of Hoi An in a very calm area and you’ll find it on a small dark street, so no where you would pass by accident unless you have a reason to go…

Hoi An

I now spent a lovely week in Hoi An. The beach, numerous tailor visits, having shoes made, good food, drinks and dinners with new friends. I must confess, after my experience in Hanoi and the way I was treated I had a bitter after taste and was not looking forward to going back to Vietnam….

Angkor Temples

The main reason I wanted to go to Siem Reap and Cambodia was to see Angkor Wat. Or so I thought. It actually turned out I thought Angkor Wat was a combination of two temples, Angkor Wat and Ta Prohm. On Thursday I had a 4.10 am wake up call and was picked up by…

Phare the Cambodian Circus 

I’m now in Siem Reap, Cambodia and my good friend Annika told me: Don’t miss Phare the Cambodian Circus when there. Well, I did as told and yesterday I visited the circus and it is sure worth visiting. If you are ever in Siem Reap I highly recommend you to visit it. Phare the Cambodian…

Siem Reap 

Now in Siem Reap, Cambodia for three days. As it turned out too short stop. Three to four days in Siem Reap is probably enough but I get the feeling I would just love travelling around Cambodia. Mainly for one reason and that’s the people. Everyone I’ve met and talked to are so friendly. I…

Ha Long Bay

Ha Long Bay is listed on the Unesco World Heritage list and if in Vietnam it is worth a visit. However, as in my previous post you might want to lower your expectations on the tour or see to it that you arrange something different. It is possible to see Ha Long Bay from the…

Ha Long Bay Tour Arrangements

I was recommended to visit Ha Long Bay while in the northern parts of Vietnam so I booked a three days – two nights tour through the hotel. In this piece I’ll just write about the tour itself and I’ll write another piece with pictures about what I saw. Also, will not have the energy…
