Skopje, Macedonia (FYROM)

At the end of October last year Vincent and me were off to our annual brother bonding trip. This time it would take us to Eastern Europe, to the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia with a side trip to the youngest nation in the world, Kosovo. I booked our flights like a week before we…


Why You Should NOT Skip Perth

Western Australia (WA) is Australia’s biggest state and occupies about one third of the australian land mass. Its capital Perth is the biggest city in Western Australia and is home to more than 2 million people. Usually you’d consider a 2m+ city in australia’s biggest state is a tourism hotspot, especially with its beautiful natural surroundings….


The Whitsunday Islands

It is one of those unreal screensaver pictures you see on your old computer. You gaze at them and are sure, that they are too beautiful too be true. Well, let me tell you, there is a place in Queensland, Australia, that looks probably more beautiful than in your wildest imagination and exists in real…


Sydney vs. Melbourne

Flying to Australia takes forever. Whatever part in the world you are departing from, it just takes ages. Since we were already in Dubai, after our Airport Drama in Muscat, it took us two long-haul flights DXB-SIN and SIN-SYD with over 16 hours flight time to travel Down Under. And it’s worth every minute you spend…


Emergency Landing in Oman

Our flight MCT-DXB was scheduled at around 7pm. We would land in Dubai 50 minutes later and it would give us about 3 hours time for some dinner and check-in for the next two flights. We had flights from Dubai to Manila, with an 11 hours layover in Manila and onwards from Manila to Sydney….


The Beauty of Oman

It instantly hit me. The Sultanate of Oman feels real. More real like any other place I’ve been to in Arabia. We spend a day in Abu Dhabi before we came here and usually every time I’m in the United Arab Emirates, I don’t feel like I’m in Arabia at all. This time though, I…


The South Coast of Sri Lanka

Upon arriving at Colombo Airport I had misconceived the size of Sri Lanka. It is a huge island in the Indian Ocean on the tip of India. The beauty about Ceylon, how Sri Lanka was named in the british colonial era, is, that it is not an incredible famous tourist hotspot. You won’t find a…


How I Plan To Travel To All Countries In The World

Before I start this post, I want to say thank you to those, who have visited my site, looked at one of my pictures or read one of the words I’ve written! Thank you! I couldn’t believe, that after just 3 months of starting my blog, there have been readers on 6 continents and over…


Roadtrip around the Alps

The best about road trips is being totally independent. You can stop whenever, wherever you want. Drive wherever you want and see a lot more of a place than flying over it. Plus it is just great fun. Victoria and me set out to drive from Vienna to Germany to visit my friend Dimi and…


Cape Town has it all

Cape Town is located far south on my favourite continent, Africa, and easily my favourite city in the world. It’s as simple as that. I have never been more overwhelmed by a city, with its incredible combination of exhilarating activities, beautiful scenery, friendly people, fresh seafood and history. After one night in Johannesburg I took a…
