Indonesia – Land of the sea

From the heart of the Jungle, Borneo, our journey led us to the land of the sea - Indonesia. After our short detour to Derawan Islands, we continued our route via Plane to Makassar on Sulawesi. While we initially wanted to stay longer on Sulawesi, we had to adapt to our journey to our low budget and time, so that, after three days in Makassar (not a very pretty...

In the heart of the Jungle…

In the heart of the jungle, on the top of the hill, there is someone very humble, with nature’s protection as their will. Some people didn’t believe, they thought they are kind of naive, but they showed everyone, that living here is fun! It’s the dawn of the day when the jungle music starts to play: the gibbons are singing, the insects are ringing, the hornbills are flying and...

Screw hitchhiking, let’s drive – Day 23 – On a desert

I just can’t drive without stopping, it’s too beautiful here – Steffen said out loud what was on my mind when we pulled over for a fifth time within 10 minutes. The coastal road we took after Nha Trang was astonishing. Small islands, blue lagoons, countless fishermen boats and calm ocean were taking our breaths away every second. We were planning to catch up with kilometers that day and...

We woke up in the morning feeling like P Diddy! A short stop at the bakery and coffee place and our stomachs were filled for a nice ride through the rice paddies. The Họ Chỉ Mình Road got it’s name from the former North Vietnamese President Họ Chỉ Mình, who is admired as a great leader especially due to his success defeating the US forces and liberating the South....

Screw hitchhiking, let’s drive – Day 14 – Ninh Binh

What a day! We went with one bike (because Steffens bike had to get a wheel bearing replaced) to the Cuc Phuong national park northwest of Ninh Binh. At first we visited the Turtle Conservation Center and the Endangered Primates Rescue Center. And what do I see there? Both was great, but also very shocking and heartbreaking. Did you know Chinese people eat Monkey brain? They also eat turtles...

Screw hitchhiking, let’s drive – Day 12

The day before we were wondering what time should we wake up to have enough time to get to Hanoi and do everything we had, and wanted to, do. Breakfast started at 7:30 and by that time we wanted to have our backpacks already strapped to the bikes. – 6:45 is enough – no way, you always need ages to pack – wanna bet? The rules were easy: if...

Screw hitchhiking, let’s drive – Day 13

May de Ville, beside of the fancy name had also fancy breakfast service. We stuffed ourselves with toasts and moved right to… egg coffee place from the day before. We couldn’t leave Hanoi without trying ot once again! Full of sugar and egg yolks we picked up our bike from a lovely older man in whose cellar we left them for the night. Our destination – Ninh Binh was...
