The Thakhek loop runs to and from the small town of Thakhek in central Laos and it can be done in 3 or 4 days (or even 2 if you’re in a big hurry). It runs through a variety of landscapes of karst mountains, ricefields, through hills and valleys. The road is lined with caves, waterfalls and other attractions that you can visit.

Cambodia had been on my travel bucketlist ever since I read ‘First they killed my father’ last year. The conflicting stories I heard from other parents just made me more dedicated to see and experience it for myself. Some people (like me) love Cambodia, other hated it. I think it takes a bit of time to grow on you. And if you rush through and only visit Siem Reap, you won’t get to see the best side of Cambodia.

I’ll be honest, Vietnam didn’t steal my heart, but we developed a solid platonic friendship 😉 Here are my top 5 places I visited: … More Places to visit in Vietnam
As a full-time traveler, I get to experience the most awesome adventures all around the world. Those once-in-a-lifetime, epic, slightly scary, but so worth it adventures. I’m actually writing this as I just turned my motorbike in after riding it around Vietnam for 10 days. In 10 days I drove from Hanoi to Hoi An, on my own. Riding a motorbike in Vietnam has been on my bucket list ever since meeting people in South East Asia last year that did it. They described it as one of the coolest experiences they ever had. And I can now confirm, it really, really is. … More 10 days on a motorbike in Vietnam
