I fell in love with life again

I went on an adventure right away when the summer holiday started (Just so you know, I work at an international school where we have different breaks throughout the year and summer break is among those). Like previous trips, I put no hope on what I would experience or see this time because nothing will… Continue reading I fell in love with life again

Viva Indonesia: A brush with death – Nusa Penida

I found my feet off the ground, I was floating. Five seconds before, I was talking with some ladies on the beach. I tried to get back to the shore, but the waves kept coming. They were the most giant waves I had ever seen in my life. The more I tried to fight the… Continue reading Viva Indonesia: A brush with death – Nusa Penida

Viva Indonesia: Companions – Kintamani, Bali

Only one “hello” can bring solo travellers great companions and even friendships. Since my first solo trip in Japan, I have fortunately met numerous people who offer great companies and friendships. Some of them have stayed dear friends ever since. This one more time occurred to me in Bali. I chanced upon Lorella at a… Continue reading Viva Indonesia: Companions – Kintamani, Bali

Viva Indonesia: Rise and shine in Bromo

My knees were shaking, my shoulders shivering. The morning winds kept blowing. I kept breathing in and out rhythmically to stay as warm as I could.

Unexpected adventure in Bach Ma National Park

Being big on nature, I always look out for nice treks in the wild whenever I travel. Returning to Huế for the second time, I had a gut feeling about where I would be going, but was still amazed by the natural gems awaiting in Bạch Mã National Park. Located in a mountainous area on the border between the former North… Continue reading Unexpected adventure in Bach Ma National Park

Love Is Still The Answer

The biggest lesson I have learnt this year is Love. Love is everything. Love is joy, love is sharing, love is laughter. Love is tears. Love is pain. No matter what you name it, it is love. There are always two contradictory feelings in love. Sometimes in love you feel lots of pain and you… Continue reading Love Is Still The Answer

Chance encounters

I don't understand why people keep on wasting time hurting one another while some don't even have enough time to live and love. Another thing I have heard quite often recently is something better awaits you and you shouldn’t be worried too much when things didn’t work out in the way you expected. It sounds reasonable… Continue reading Chance encounters
