After a very intense day in Chiang Mai, it was time to chill and enjoy nature. The best way to enjoy Thailand’s national parks and nice scenery is by car, but I wouldn’t recommend doing that without the guide of a local or a long-term visitor. We met in Chiang Mai with one of my childhood… Continue reading A roadtrip in the North of Thailand: hotsprings, the King, and Johnny Depp
When I thought of Thailand, the first things that came to my mind were Tigers, Elephants, and Muay Thai. So it was among our plans to experience a bit of each. To see tigers and take pictures next to them, we went to Tiger Kingdom, and to experience Muay Thai, we went to a class in a specialized gym. Both experiences were great because they were really different from other things we did and made the trip more special. Read on to see the pictures! 😀
After some days in the bustling city of Bangkok, we were ready for some relax. We had heard Chiang Mai was much smaller and less stressing, and there were some experiences we were really looking forward like the Tiger Kingdom and the Muay Thai class. We arrived to Chiang Mai on a late afternoon and spent… Continue reading Charming Chiang Mai
Bangkok is very hectic and has a lot to offer. While the first few days we experienced the historic part and the backpackers party area, the last days were spent near the city centre were malls are the norm. One very famous hidden place around there is the Phallic shrine, which… as you can tell from the name, has a lot of penis figures all around! Check the post for more quirky details~
During our short stay in Bangkok, we dedicated 1 day to explore the ruins of Ayutthaya. As it was low season, there were not many people around, making it a very unique experience!
Finally here is a summary of our trip to Thailand! 1st part is the few days we spent in Bangkok. Today I explain what we did around the Old City of Bangkok.
This short weekend trip to Hong Kong was my first experience traveling alone. Even though I met my friends from Spain, I took the plane by myself and stayed in a hostel.
I’m usually not that amazed by the views from skycrapers, but I must admit HK offers some really good panoramic views from both the Victoria Peaks and from Ozone, the Ritz Carlton’s 113th floor bar-terrace. What makes it so incredible maybe is the fact that there are just sooo many skycrappers, and many of them have illumination shows going on all night long.
Most people go to Hong Kong either for shopping or for eating. I wasn’t eager of any of these, since I’m not a big fan of seafood nor dimsun. I had to give dimsun another chance though, as I had only tried it in Spain, and I’m glad I did! It was delicious!
I lived in Barcelona (or actually Sant Cugat del Valles, very close and well connected to Barcelona) for 5 years while going to college. During that time, I had the chance to explore this marvellous city and also went visiting most of it whenever friends or family visited. Therefore, I am going to present some of the highlights to do and see in Barcelona, starting with a short 3-day visit.
