Getting a Haircut in Varanassi, India

One of my favorite things to do while traveling is getting haircuts in the most random places I can find. It’s just a great adventure sitting down on a seat without knowing what kind of haircut you will end up with. This time I found a hole-in-the-wall barber shop next to the Ganges in India. [...]

Traveling by public transportation in remote parts of Indonesia means a lot of waiting around. Waiting for the bus to show up, waiting for the bus driver to finish lunch, waiting for aunty drinking her tea before getting in the bus.

Falafel and Hummus in Jerusalem, Israel

“If the food’s good, everything else works out” What can I say? I live by that mantra, love good food and always look for the next new food flavor sensation. I’m even willing to risk spending a few days sick on the pot for a new tasty food adventure. But I also know that many [...]

Traveling is all about getting out of your comfort zone. The best way to get far away from your comfort zone is to venture beyond the places you intend to visit.  Stop in random villages along the road and see what you find. Just a few days ago I found five beautiful girls waiting at [...]

Kids coming running from their houses, screaming “Hello, hello, hello…” and then looking at you, pinching your white skin and laughing. Always laughing.

When you are in Siam Reap, Cambodia, make sure you treat yourself to the thrill of a fish massage. Hundreds of cleaning fish will bite, pull and suck on your feet as soon as you stick your feet into the open aquarium. Happily eating away on your old skin. This kind of massage tickles like [...]

Eating Fantastic Frogs in Cambodia

By now you should know that I have a big weakness for strange food. Usually the strange food tastes good, but it never really tingled my taste buds to exhaustion. My mind was always blown away by the strangeness of it all, but never by the taste. All that changed when I had my first [...]

Skulls at the Cambodian Killing Fields

Traveling is the best education that I know of. A big part of that education has to be learning about the many mistakes against humanity that happen(ed) in so many parts of the world.
