We Are Living in the Castle

Chateau de Burnand - France

After 9 months in Asia we are back to Europe. As Kaspars wrote, everything there seems so much like at home, but at the same time so unfamiliar and distant. Getting from Langkawi island in Malaysia to Paris took us about 30 hours, including time we spent waiting for connecting flights. We spent 3 days in Paris. And after that … Read More

Returning to Europe After 9 Months in Asia – How is It?

Europe and Asia compared in one picture

There are days when it’s cold. Then it’s especially cold for my shaved head and bare feet, because I’m still wearing flip flops. But days are so long, that at some moment you start thinking, is sun setting today or not? It’s interesting and boring in Europe at the same time. Everything there seems so much like at home, but at … Read More

Paris in Three Days: Short Notes + Photos

Street shop selling posters in Paris, France

Our plane has landed. People around us start to put on their jackets, scarfs, hats. And there are we standing together with them – wearing only t-shirts, shorts and flip flops. Is it that cold in summer in Paris? Aircraft’s doors open and people start getting off. We go out from the airplane into corridor connected to the airport and … Read More

Langkawi in One Day: Here is What You Can Do

Kaspars on scooter - Langkawi island, Malaysia

Let’s start with the transport. As there is no public transportation system on Langkawi island, only taxi, you will need to think about it first. We recommend you to rent a scooter in Langkawi. One of the most popular places, where to rent it, is located just by the ferry terminal. Scooter rent for one day will cost you just slightly higher than some … Read More

At the Northern part of Langkawi

11 weeks or nearly 3 months. Such a long period of time we have currently spent on Langkawi island doing volunteer work. And for us this is the longest period of time we have ever spent in one place outside Latvia. So it’s not a surprise, that here we feel like at home, where everything is so familiar. Where they … Read More

12 Days in Thailand: Chiang Mai – Bangkok – Phuket

Una in Chiang Mai, Thailand

VISA on arrival for only 15 days. Upon arrival we need to show an onward airline ticket for a flight away from the country. And it’s already decided – we can’t do too much this time in Thailand. We don’t want to run from a place to place. That’s not in our style. So we decide, that this time we will visit only … Read More

Read This Before Going to Hong Kong

Hong Kong waterfront

As I wrote earlier, Hong Kong for us with Una was completely spontaneous destination (it was in summer of 2014). When buying tickets, we did not know, not what we gonna do there, nor where we gonna live. Nothing. We let emotions to take over and simply used the opportunity to travel to this in our opinion very exotic place. … Read More

Hong Kong Disneyland (+VIDEO)

Hong Kong Disneyland entrance

When a few weeks ago we decided to travel to Hong Kong, we did not really had any ideas about what we are going to do there. We planned to see the city and go out to see nature. Going there itself was big adventure for us. And then, similar to that how we found that flight offer to Hong Kong, … Read More

First Time In Hong Kong, First Impressions

Hong Kong skyline

Hong Kong? Another 3 weeks ago I knew next to nothing about this place. But then – there was this banner online with promotional flight offer. We did a quick research to find out, that Hong Kong is an autonomous territory and we Latvians don’t need a visa when traveling there. Then we read few interesting articles about Hong Kong, and IT WAS … Read More
