Reading Time: 6 minutesAfter some lazy days on Gili Air and an even lazier breakfast I tried to make my way to the harbor to head to Tetebatu, a small village in the mountains close to Mount Rinjani. A nice girl I’ve once met on a party close to my hometown in Germany had helped build a bungalow…
Crossfit Training- a training method that was invented by a dude called Greg Glassman. I am pretty sure he does not like humans. It is a workout that includes weightlifting, high-intensity interval training, gymnastics, plyometrics and many more workouts I have no clue of.
But what had brought me to the point to work out at 9am on a Saturday morning, whilst I was chilling on a tropical island?
Here we go:
Reading Time: 7 minutesHave you ever been to the small Koh Chang in Thailand? It’s a tiny island located in western Thailand, close to Ranong and one of my best friends runs a bar there. It was her birthday soon, so my friend and my me plotted a surprise visit, she had not expected. I had told her…
Do you want to visit Big Island, Hawaii and see as much as possible in a few days? Here’s your guide to do so on a Road trip around the southernmost Hawaiian island. It is possible in four days though I would recommend at least five and spend some more time in Pahoa. I’ve lived there for a bit and I have to admit that it is quite charming.
Hawaii’s volcanoes are “shield” volcanoes. They don’t explode and spit lava, they let it gently flow out creating a beautiful landscape worth seeing.
“The volcano is erupting!” I heard someone shout. PERFECT I thought. How do I get there?
Have you ever been to a Native American Sweat Lodge ceremony? I had not known what to expect when I signed up for this, but some hours later I found myself sitting around a fire in a tent sweating for 3 hours straight surrounded by strangers on drugs. Sober. And this is how it started:
Hahaha! Yes, this works – not kidding here. A good friend from Australia taught me ✨ and this is how it works:
There we go again! Why volunteer work and not just hang out at the beach and enjoy the art of doing nothing?
Because it’s boring! It’s so damn boring to hang out at a beach and relax. You can do it anywhere. I feel like volunteering gets me to experience the country in a different way- it kind of makes me feel like I would actually live there and experience it to be my home. So why not feel home in Hawaii?
On my way to Hawaii I had an overlay of 7 hours in Vegas. I always tend to book the cheapest flight and as no-one wants to be stuck in airports for more than an hour, prices go down if you do. Why not actually enjoy it! I had enough time to explore the city.
When I went out of the plane I had absolutely no idea where to go, but luckily I was picked up by Rob, a Couchsurfer I had contacted a week ahead. He was waiting in his car and I had never seen him before. He had good references and my stomach didn’t hurt when I looked at his picture. Yeah, I figure this sounds weird, but it actually happens to me when I get the feeling the person in not good for me.
And there he was now, right next to me on the driver’s seat smiling at the road.
