Asia, Japan / 03.11.2016

I took off my yukata, and got dressed as fast as my just-woken-up-hands allowed. Still, cold crept up to my bones. But when you’re waking up at 6am in a Buddhist Temple, deep in the mountains, in Japan’s most sacred town of Koyasan, and you’re expected at the shrine for the morning ceremony, details like cold become irrelevant. And that’s saying something coming from me.
Asia, Confessions, Thailand / 24.10.2016

Before we leave Thailand, I’d like to look back on our time in this amazing country. It’s been two months with its ups and downs, beaches and forests, oceans and lakes, Muay Thai and massages, karst to no end and too many motorbike rides to count. I firmly believe that when you actively reflect upon the time spent in a place, it prevents it from being a fleeting trip once lived. It becomes permanent, somehow, as you realize how and why this place changed you. This change will still be a part of you even after you are long gone.
Asia, Obsessions, Thailand / 26.09.2016

Working out and trying activities in new places are two of the things I enjoy the most. The problem is that putting the two of them together can often result in something too intense, too dangerous or way out of my comfort zone. Before arriving in Thailand, I knew that I didn’t want to leave without taking at least one Muay Thai class.  What can be more appropriate than learning the national sport?
