2 hikes in Hong Kong

i was in HK again; just for a week, but there was enough time during the weekend to hike again in the wildness. High Junk Peak at first i did not enjoy this route at all – just after living the last buildings behind: there was ~25 min of walking up the narrow concrete stairs ... Read More


i’ve spent two weeks traveling around Tenerifa with my parents. we’ve seen a bit of the commercial-heavy south near Los Cristianos, rocky west coast in Los Gigantes, semi-rural areas of Icod de Vinos, a bit of Puerto de la Cruz and post-volcanic Teide and Puerto de Guimar. our hiking routes – below.

10 days in Albania

i’ve spent nearly two weeks traveling around Albania. i’ve started and ended the journey on a Greek island – Corfu [ i could not find any reasonably-priced flight from Berlin to Tirana ] and from there travelled with a ferry to Sarandë.

Taling Chan floating market, Bangkok hike

i stayed in Bangkok for 3 nights. i took one-day trip to Ayutthaya and have spent rest of the time hiking around. the longest hike i took was to Taling Chan floating market. as in many other cases it was more about the way there and back than the destination itself.


as in 2012 i’ve done a one-day trip to Ayutthaya. it was very much worth repeating and getting away from noisy Bangkok.

Chumphon, Hua Hin

on my way from Koh Tao to Bangkok i’ve stayed for one night at Chumphon and then Hua Hin. the first one was totally not-touristy, second – quite opposite; i’m glad that i decided not to rush towards Thailand’s capital and visited both.

hiking on Koh Tao

i took a ferry from Koh Samui to Koh Tao and stayed there for 2 nights. the island was quite touristy but still worth visiting. i looked at the map and thought to myself.. if there’s a route coming from the west and another one from the east – there surely must be some path ... Read More

hiking on Koh Samui

during my recent trip to Thailand i’ve spent 4 days at the Koh Samui island. i’ve stayed in the southern part – near Baan Hua Thanon – fisherman village with quite obvious Muslim influence. the choice was great – area was not very touristy and a great starting point for hikes.

Golden Hill Country Park

while visiting Hong Kong this winter my colleague and ex-flatmate from Goteborg times took me to the Kowloon Byewash Reservoir / Golden Hill Country Park.


i’ve sepnt two August/September weeks traveling with my parents from Dubrovnik via Sarajevo and Zagreb to Budapest. short brain-dump with hiking maps follows.

around Gran Canaria

i’ve spent 2 weeks at the beginning of March at Gran Canaria. below – list of the more interesting walking trails we’ve taken.

hk, mc, sg, my

i got another chance to visit Asia. instead of suffering cold, dark and cold January in Sweden i’ve spent 3 weeks in mild Hong Kong & Macau, tropically hot Singapore and pleasantly warm Vietnam.

3+ weeks in Portugal

i’ve been thinking about working remotely for a few weeks from some warm[er] country for quite some time. finally i’ve tried – i’ve spent 3+weeks in Portugal while taking just 2 days of holidays. all went surprisingly well.

balkans – again

so i’ve hit the road again – packed my trusted 8-10yo travel bag, took laptop, camera + 3 lenses, kindle with 400+documents waiting to be read or deleted, mp3 player, gps, two mobile phones, earplugs, some old clothes and nothing more. i’ve even left intentionally at home travel guides borrowed from the local library – ...

asia trip 2/4 – singapore

after 10 days in Hong Kong my next stop was Singapore. i had 2.5days to use for some meetings and sightseeing.
