Day 58: Leaving Laos

Whoa, we’ve been on the road for two months now! Tan skin, empty bank accounts, and a smile on our faces, we’re about to start the final month of our journey, exploring Taiwan, Cambodia and finally, once more, Thailand (and we’ll be joined by someone who’s been featured in this blog almost two years ago!!!)….

Day 37: Train Z322 To Lhasa (Feat. Pandas)

After laptop hunting in Shenzhen (horrible!), visiting Shanghai Disneyland and walking the longest glass suspension bridge in the world, travelling across China and climbing on one of the most beautiful mountains in the country, we needed some serious enlightenment. And what better a place than Tibet? Travelling to Tibet has been made somewhat difficult for…

On the bus from Hong Kong to mainland China: “Can you see Disneyland Hong Kong from the window?” “I can’t. But should we go there?” “We don’t have the money” “Well, what if we did?” “We don’t.” ” ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ” “But what if..” “We don’t” ” ๐Ÿ˜ฆย  … Isn’t there one in Shanghai?” “Yeah?” “Isn’t…

Day 13: Notebook Hunting, a Couple of Cities and One Mountain

As it happens, almost two weeks ago I and my beloved enginerd once again hit the road to have a 3 months-long adventure in Asia. Having once travelled around the world, and lived in Taiwan for quite some time, we had a pretty relaxed approach to the trip: a week before, we had no hotels…

Surprisingly, This Post Is About Food (and Tallinn)

First of all: I’m in a very tight relationship with my phone. Second of all, having my phone and its charger in separate countries can cause absolute and pure panic. Third of all, the staff at Viru Hotel in Estonia are the purest and nicest people ever and total lifesavers. Now, let’s get to the…

Hualien and Taroko National Park in Pictures

One of the best things about Taiwan is its nature. The fact that the island is so small, adds to the awesomeness since many of the hiking trails and mountains are more or less accessible by public transportation. By less I mean it is sometimes a bit challenging to find the information needed to get…

Rabbit Food – A Short Survival Guide for Vegetarians in Taiwan

I’m a vegetarian, and the enginerd usually keeps me company. Basically, when we eat out it means no red meat, no white meat, cut down dairy and eggs, and avoid gelatin as much as possible. And 100% No. Fuckin. Olives. (Olives are Satan’s tennis balls.) Being a vegetarian in Taiwan is super easy and relaxed,…

An Engineer Walks Into a Hardware Store

A joke: An engineer walks into a hardware store and shows the owner a Chinese word for a “file” on his cell phone. The owner starts looking for the item, and the engineer’s wife tells him they’re from North Europe, definitely not from Norway, as the owner thinks, but from Finland. Then she proceeds to…
