At a pretty early stage in my life I noticed that I want to do more than travel around and be a tourist. I didn’t just want go to a country, have a good time, use lots of resources and then leave after one or two weeks. It felt much better to contribute in some way apart from spending money. Here are four ways for you to do good while traveling and make your trip much more meaningful.
Koh Tao is a great place to spend your holiday. There’s plenty to do under water, on the water as well as on land. The small island in the Gulf of Thailand features some beautiful jungly, mountainous hikes. One of them is the famous lighthouse hike which leads you to a hidden lighthouse at the north east tip of the island. The path for the hike is very hard to find. In fact, it’s neither on MAPS.ME nor on Google maps. But with this guide chances are very high for you to find it!
Receding hairline is something not only men but also women face. Either the density of hair has always been low or it comes with getting older. Especially when tying the hair or making special hair styles a receding hairline can ruin the whole appereance and make one feel uncomfortable. The Fidentia hair shader is one of the hair concealers on the market which I’ve been using for a while now. Although this is a rather uncomfortable topic I hope you’ll benefit from this honest and independent review.
How expensive is it living on an island in Thailand? I spent a few months on Koh Tao in 2020 and now I’m living on Koh Phangan. This post gives an insight into cost of living including accommodation, transport, food and activities.
Imagine you could live and work by the sea. Listen to the waves while falling asleep. Having the best restaurants just a five minute walk away. Imagine living and working on an island. All these things come true at Beachub coworking on the Thai island Koh Phangan.
The Mae Hong Son Loop is a really popular route in Northern Thailand. Many travellers do the loop by motorbike or scooter and get to see stunning scenery as well as rural towns. My boyfriend Brad has done the Mae Hong Son Loop by 125cc scooter and will share his experience with you. Read more about if it was possible doing the loop by scooter and what to expect from this adventure.
This blogpost is a bunch of thoughts I had on a boatride from Koh Phangan to Koh Tao. In fact it was quite a challenging boatride during monsoon season. It revealed something inside of me though which I wanted to capture and write down. There’s no better place to do that than on placesoflinda.
To get from Krabi to Khao Sok you can either take the bus, a private van or also just go by scooter. Going by scooter or motorbike is the cheaper and more adventurous option which is a little bit like a sightseeing trip. Read more about the journey and why it is worth driving this route yourself.
Khao Sok National Park left me speechless. Located in South Thailand its rainforest offers wildlife, iconic limestone hills, waterfalls and great biodiversity. I joined a two night trip with Thai National Parks. If you want to feel like Na’vi from Avatar this adventure is perfect for you. And the most important fact: This tour operator doesn’t offer any elephant activities which was a basic requirement for me.
With Thailand opening its borders to the world in 2021 it becomes possible again to think about a holiday in the land of smiles. Thailand is one of the few SEA countries that is open to tourists during the COVID pandemic. However it is not as open as it seems as there are some requirements and restrictions in place. What is Phuket Sandbox? How easy is it to enter Thailand? What documents have to be prepared to travel? Is it worth going to Thailand for only a few weeks? I travelled to Thailand in October 2021 and want to share my experience.
