VOLUNTEERING IN HAWAII

Reading Time: 3 minutes

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?

7 HOURS IN VEGAS

Reading Time: 4 minutes

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.

THE BEACH

Reading Time: 4 minutes

We have all seen the movie “The Beach”, with backpacking Leo who dives into a hidden paradise, – a secret island somewhere in the Andaman Sea.
In the movie he got a map in Bangkok, found someone to charter a small boat with, and swam the remaining distance towards the island.
Well guess what! You can do exactly the same!

KOH PHI PHI- THE BACKPACKERS’ PARTY ISLAND

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Off to Koh Phi Phi, an island where you can walk from one side to the other side in less than 5 minutes. It’s bigger than it sounds, but is also kind of narrow. In the middle you find yourself in tourist trap wonderland: t-shirts, bars, sand and whiskey buckets. It’s backpackers’ paradise and the only reason you go there is to get drunk, enjoy some electronic music and watch people dance with fire. Only a cut off few palm trees and some warning signs remind you of the tsunami, that hit that part some years earlier.
