Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City? Hanoi!
Hanoi – a Beautiful Mess

My photography is heavily focused on capturing a ‘beautiful mess’. Give me a broken wall, add some colours to it, dot some leaves around and I’m in my element! For whatever reason, my eye is always immediately focused on imperfections. They fascinate me. In my photography, but also in life,...

Travelling from Vietnam to Laos by Bus

When I researched on the Vietnam – Laos border crossing bus (or vice versa from Vietnam to Laos), all I could find was doom and gloom stories about how dangerous it was, how long it takes, how it should be avoided at all cost. I was advised to splash out...

Recipe: Lao Larb (Spicy Chicken Salad)

Laos was the only country I visited so far in which I struggled to find a variety of recipes. This is because there aren’t too many traditional dishes in Laos. This yummy summer salad is perfect for those really hot days. You can either use minced chicken or beef....

Welcome to Vietnam! Musings on travelling solo.

This one evening, I was happily minding my own business – about to order my dinner at this street food stall, looking forward to half an hour of uninterrupted simply being with myself, when this dutch woman sits opposite of me. Eurgh. Really…what is it with people? I would never...

Recipe: Vietnamese Pho

Vietnamese Food. I could write love poems for you. I knew before I arrived in Ho Chi Minh City that I loved Noodle soups. Having spent a month in Thailand prior to that wetted my appetite already to try different types of soups all across Asia. I’m also a massive...

Thailand Island Hopping on a Budget – Koh Tao

Staying on Koh Tao for a week was magical. It is truly a magnificent island. Koh Tao is the perfect compromise between Koh Phayam and Koh Phi Phi. You still have the party scene, but on a much more relaxed scale then on Koh Phi Phi. And you can easily...
