travelling is my passion!


Since I can remember my family did travel around Europe and those experiences still form some of the best memories I have.  Travelling used to be something special, where you returned home and told your friends about, stored memories in photo albums and in your collections of “things” from those countries.  Meaningful to oneself foremost – Interesting to see for others!  Travelling became something normal and in this fast paced world everyone travels and posts all the time. Unfortunately those special moments are no longer special! Well, not for a long time! Since we are bombarded with travel snapshots on so many social media sites, we are just consuming them, “liking” them for a brief moment, but not for eternity, like it used to be.

My travel blog here is mostly for myself and for sharing it with my friends.  For myself, because there is no longer those precious photo albums, of which I still have many.  For my friends, because I keep getting hammered with questions about this and that experience for a certain country and I got tired of re-typing the same list of what to see and what to do in a certain place.

2020 and 2021 were really difficult years for me since I could not travel at all to any of my favourite destinations in Asia. Naturally no new travel blogs have been published. I will hopefully resume travelling and blogging after this pandemic is over or somewhat under control.

On here I focus on Asian travel only.  (Old content, posted with MS Frontpage, is still up and alive but will not be maintained anymore, nor do the links for contacting me work any longer.  I will still keep some information linked here, like our extensive website which lists all the Thai temples we have visited over the years. However, since this content is getting so outdated, it will be removed soon.  To continue writing about Thai Temples we now use a seperate blog. My coverage of Khmer Temples inside Thailand hosted on will be removed in early 2021. Our travel experiences to the Khmer temples of Cambodia are hosted on
