Status update :)

Instead of sightseeing in Saint Louis as planned, I am chilling out in Dakar before my last part of the travel further north towards south of Morocco .. In general I hate waiting, not knowing exactly when my transport will leave Dakar, but if this is the way to wait, I shall not complain, right?…

Mangos and countryside outside Dakar

Even though i am spending majority of my time here in Senegal in the city of Dakar, I also got a chance to visit the countryside outside of the city… to my surprise very green! But I was told that not all Senegal is a as green as the countryside close to Dakar… maybe one…

N’Gor beach: Start and the end of my Dakar experience

Four weeks later, also on Saturday, I find myself again on the same beach, on the NGor beach, one of the most picturesque beaches of Dakar. It is my last weekend in Dakar, before leaving up north to Saint Louise. It is interesting how on the first Saturday after my arrrival Mr. Samba (nice gentleman…

Photo story: The heart of Senegalese fishing industry

Let’s photos talk for itself again… Arriving to this fishermen’s town of Cayar a bit north of Dakar on this last sunday’s afternoon was one of the most breath taking moments since being in Senegal.

Goodbye Asia …

After two months spent in Asia It is time to say goodbye and move one. It was an amazing experience and now I fully understand why so many travellers are heading to this region. It is safe, hassle free and easy to travel, with people being nice, easy going, smiling all the time and being…

Photo story from Cambodia

After a long and wordy post about my meditation course, here are some pictures to feast your eyes on local colour of Cambodia and Thailand.

10 days of mind training, aloe vera & much more

“Donnnnng, donnnnng, donnnnnng, donnnnnng”. I open my eyes slightly and realise this is the first of the 10 mornings with a 4am wake-up call in order to start the first morning meditation at 4.30 am. True to my old habit I just turn around and close my eyes to steal another 15 or 20 minutes of…

Tiny little piece of paradise…

…. that I found here on island Ko Chang in Thailand in order to recharge my batteries before leaving South-east Asia behind me in a couple of days…. A very basic bungalows, but amazingly “loungy” restaurant over the sea, all in wood, with many smaller terraces. A truly  hidden corner, away from resorts and tourist…
