South East Asia (March – June 2010)

Yeah, it was my very first big, lonely backpacking trip. To be honest it was also pretty spontaneous. I finished my 6 months student internship by British Telecom in Frankfurt and decided to use this opportunity to travel before signing a new contract.

Finding a destination was pretty easy. This time South East Asia for sure. After Colombia I wanted to see the other part of the globe and moreover, there was a great argument behind: low prices J
During this almost 3 months trip I have visited mainly: Chang Mai, Bangkok, Ko Pha Ngan in Thailand, Phnom Penh, Siem Reap with amazing Angkor Wat in Cambodia, Kuala Lumpur and Tioman Island in Malaysia, Java, Bali, Lombok and Gili Islands in Indonesia and Singapore.
It is now impossible to describe the whole trip, but one is undoubted: it only ensured me, that traveling is my biggest passion! What I will never forget is:: eating cockroaches on the romantic date with a tuck tuck driver in Cambodia, doing my first dives in Tioman and Gili Islands, spending my birthday in Singapore, riding a scooter on the left side of the road, having extreme fun on the Full Moon Party on Ko Pha Ngan, climbing Ijen Crater on Java, barely losing sight/vision on Bali and returning home with awful infection on my leg.
I survived in pretty good shape and knew, that it is only the beginning of a great journey of my life.
