A Week In Myanmar

I went to Myanmar because of Aung San Suu Kyi. I really admired her. Of course, I didn't get to see her but having the chance to visit the country and seeing the progress she had made to her country was a joy. She was also admired by her citizens too. I contacted an expat … Continue reading A Week In Myanmar

A School Visit. Red Bull Gives You Wings!

The first thing I did right after I got off the overnight train from Astana to Almaty was to rush back to the hostel. It was 5am or 7am (?). I told the tourist I’d go out by myself for the whole day today. After we arrived at the hostel, he went straight to sleep … Continue reading A School Visit. Red Bull Gives You Wings!

Is Astana Worth Going? A Day Trip to Borovoye

I met a guy from another room on the train. He knew where my hostel was so he offered me a free ride. That was so kind of him. Well, was Astana with the visit? Before I went there, I read from various sources that said it wasn’t. But the tourist who tagged along insisted … Continue reading Is Astana Worth Going? A Day Trip to Borovoye

A Two-Night Trip at Kolsay Lakes National Park

Woke up at 4am to catch a taxi to the bus terminus for the Lake Kaindy trip. The information centre arranged the trip for us except this taxi trip of course. It was a one-night trip. We would spend a night at a huge guesthouse run by a family in Saty. According to the information … Continue reading A Two-Night Trip at Kolsay Lakes National Park

Post Post-Long-Term-Backpacking-Depression Came Kazakhstan

After I finished my so-called 'long term' backpacking trip in South America (I met someone who had been backpacking for 20 years in Peru so my trip was really nothing), I suffered from post long term backpacking depression. I'd stay at home, sit on my sofa and start to cry because I missed it so … Continue reading Post Post-Long-Term-Backpacking-Depression Came Kazakhstan

Kindness Was All Around In Puerto Natales And Torres del Paine, Chile

I woke up early to catch the bus from Ushuaia, Argentina to Punta Arenas, Chile. Then I got on the bus and then crossed the border as usual. (I like the words 'as usual'. It does remind me of my 'nomadic' life. :)) The wind was very strong that day. Our bus was supposed to … Continue reading Kindness Was All Around In Puerto Natales And Torres del Paine, Chile

Let’s Feel Some Love In Ushuaia

A Peaceful And Tranquil Day in El Calafate

I kept sneezing when I was cooking yesterday. Maybe my room mate had spread her cold to me. So I planned to take a good rest and stayed in the sun for the day. I checked online to see the price of the plane ticket to Ushuaia. The low rate only applied to local Argentinians … Continue reading A Peaceful And Tranquil Day in El Calafate

The Spectacular Perito Moreno Glacier

I checked in the hostel in El Calafate and paid for the tour to Perito Moreno which included a mini trekking on the glacier. It had always been my dream to do this glacier trekking since I missed the one in Franz Joseph long long time ago. Doing this one would be much better because … Continue reading The Spectacular Perito Moreno Glacier

Trekking To Laguna Torre

Another trekking day. I first went to the panoramic viewpoint (Loma del Pilegue Tumbado).   There was no one on the trail. I was the only person there. Eventually, I saw a couple but that's all. It was a very quiet place. The view wasn't spectacular - only some trees and short grass. I started … Continue reading Trekking To Laguna Torre
