My Story of Southeast Asia part 4:

Phuket and Pattaya, Thailand After 2 weeks of visiting everything we could in Bangkok, Thailand, Siem Reap, Cambodia, and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, it was time to relax.

My Story of Southeast Asia part 3

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia From Siem Reap, Cambodia, we continued our one-month journey through Southeast Asia in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. After days of walking and seeing what felt like “everything” – though it was really just a tiny bit of Thailand and Cambodia, we arrived in Malaysia already tired.

Siem Reap, Cambodia After leaving Bangkok, Thailand, we arrived in Siem Reap, Cambodia, on December 11th, 2017.

My Story of Bruxelles, Belgium

After a sunny vacation in Parga, Greece, our next stop was Bruxelles, Belgium. We’re talking of a whole different kind of weather.

Despite the not so lovely weather, the city has a lot toContinue reading “My Story of Bruxelles, Belgium”

My story of Istanbul, Turkey (part 1)

I remember Istanbul being one of those cities I really wanted to visit. Partly because I’ve heard so much about what an eclectic mix of cultures it is, partly because its’ location on two continents fascinated me and partly because I actually had friends in Turkey, and I was excited by the opportunity to visitContinue reading “My story of Istanbul, Turkey (part 1)”
