Kia Ora

Kia Ora Bro's and Coz, 

Its nice to have you on my Blog. For the one who didn't know so far I left Germany behind in August 2011. I will spent a whole year in New Zealand with a holiday working visa in my bag. I hope this enables me to travel a lot and see a lot of the country with not too much of work. Im going to leave tomorrow on the 2.8.2011, from Berlin via Frankfurt, Singapur, Sidney to Auckland. I've booked for the first five nights a Hostel to have a rest after a 30h trip to the other side of the world. And to organize the first bits and pieces of my journey here. On this site i'll post the next few month how I am, where I am and what I did so far and going to do. I promise to post constantly new storys, pictures and videos from time to time. At least as long the webspace allowes me to upload more stuff.

Same same but different, Thailand Part Two

sIMG_3485

I’m still alive and gosh here is the next Article. Even though my Thailand visit was 2 years ago I have it in such a good memory. I could leave straight away again. Especially looking at all these beautiful places makes living a normal life here hard. This Post is about my arrival on the diving island Koh Tao and my Padi Advance Open Water course. So everything until Full Moon Party which I’m writing about next time …

Have fun reading.

Cheers Jakob

Malaysia - The mystical country of people living on trees and pushing in at the counter – Part Two

sIMG_2669

Whoa mates,

I’m exhausted now. What a freaking long post about the rest of my trip through Malaysia. But finally its done now. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did when I visited this country. One thing in advance: Nobody here lives on Trees. But it is a bit mystical and the people really push in everywhere they can. Not only at the counter.

Cheers Jakob

The headline may sounds a bit weird but that was what Amy in New Zealand once said about her home country. Now I wanted to have a proof. So that was one reason to go there. Another one: Amy lives here, I wanted to visit her and just because it is between Singapore and Thailand my last destination in SEA (South East Asia). Have a read of the first part of my discoveries.

sIMG_2215

This is my second part of my journey in Indonesia and covers the time I spent on the nice Gili Island. Way later than announced but better than never. Its about this wonderful group of islands and the French group I met here. Thanks to Luisa I changed my literary fauxpas naming my headline for this article eat prey love to eat pray love. I wasn't smart enough to come up with this idea on my own, its just another mistake so ... :-)
