4’000 Islands – Kajak auf dem Mekong

4'000 Islands - Kayaking on the Mekong

Immer über Kajakfahren auf dem Mekong gedacht? Ich habe nie gedacht, dass es eine gute Idee wäre, unter Berücksichtigung, wie groß, dass der Strom ist und wie schnell es fließt. Aber wie immer im Leben – Sag niemals nie. Es ist auf jeden Fall die am meisten erinnern, was ich auf Don Det getan habe – einer der […]

The natural wonder Kong Lo cave and the friendliest Laos people

Kong Lo cave was an amazing experience – a lovely landscape, very friendly and helpful people, funny local transport experiences and a stunning natural wonder. I made my way from Vientiane to Ban Khoun Kham as the only Westerner on the bus – nothing new to me as I did a lot of off-the-beaten track […]

Toilet stops on Laos bus rides

Toilet stops on Laos bus rides

Bus rides in most countries are surprisingly well organised. During all my travels there were always toilets on the way and the bus stopped every couple of hours to use them. Of course, bus stop toilets are amongst the most disgusting you can find. So it didin’t bother me much that there aren’t that many […]

Hangover II in Bangkok – Skybar and Ping Pong Show

Hangover II in Bangkok - Skybar and Ping Pong Show

Did you see Hangover II? I did and as I’ve been to Bangkok many times before, I asked myself, where’s that bar/restaurant. The view is just amazing. And then another traveller told me it’s definetely worth to go. So I did my research on internet. The place is called The Dome or Lebua State Tower […]

Jolanda's still on the way...

A year ago I started to travel. I could guess that it would take a little bit longer and so it is… I’ve just arrived from Sydney, got some manicure and pedicure, some Thai massage, ate my Pad Thai and I feel happy. Since months I somehow looked forward to arrive in Thailand, have some […]


10 reasons why I love Colombia

10 reasons why I love Colombia

This article is overdue. I already wanted to write in when I was still in Colombia. But sometimes things don’t work according to your plan… Before I went to Colombia I already know that this country is going to be very special for me. Why? The first interesting latino men I met in my life […]


My 30th birthday and a year of my life in Latin America

My 30th birthday and a year of my life in Latin America

…a reason to celebrate! I wanted to celebrate my 30th birthday at a beachparty with some great people or to stay in a luxury hotel and get some spa treatments. But Cali was a much better place to celebrate. Besides my birthday I could also celebrate having spent a year of my life in Latin […]


Salsa fever in Cali

Salsa fever in Cali

It’s been on a Monday when I arrived in Cali. I already heard from my friend that Mondays are the best nights out together with the Thursdays. I also heard that Cali is a very popular place to dance salsa and that many travellers get stuck in Colombia’s third biggest city… But I never thought […]


Sailing to Colombia!

Sailing to Colombia!

A dream became true. I was sailing within a bit more than four days from Panama to Colombia on a Catamaran. It wasn’t that easy to choose a boat once I was in Panama-City. But the hostels there have a lot of boats and information to offer. The prices are around 450/500 US-Dollars. And as […]

Planned 4 months, I stayed 6 months. Central America really surprised me. I have never expected that I like it that much. l have met so many really, really nice people, learnt a lot about myself and was impressed by the beautiful nature this part of the world has to offer. Volcanos, beaches, lakes, rivers, […]


Con mucho gusto…

Con mucho gusto...

My Spanish is getting a bit better every day and I can understand more and more of the conversations the “Ticos” are having. Being the sometimes the only foreigner or not native Spanisch speaker, they don’t speak slower just for me and I like it. I like to follow their conversations although sometimes they’re too […]
