Äventyr i Taman Negara Nationalpark

*English version comming soon* – Detta var en resa sponsrad av MalaysiaExperten.se, men upplevelserna och åsikterna är mina egna – Äventyr i Malaysias nationalpark Taman Negara Om Taman Negara Världens näst äldsta tropiska regnskog med 130 miljoner år på nacken. Dag 1 – Nattpromenad i djungeln På morgonen blev jag och några till upphämtade i Kuala Lumpur i en minibuss som släppte av mig vid en liten by där jag fick åka båt på floden till hotellet Mutiara Taman Negara Resort . De andra åkte bil resten av vägen men jag rekommenderar verkligen båtturen(om det inte är regnsäsong) som är så rogivande och vacker. Jag kom fram med båten till resortens lilla brygga och gick upp för att checka in. Jag fick nyckel och min alldeles egna bungalow. Efter en varm dusch, tupplur och trerätters middag på Mutiaras restaurang hade solen gått ner och det var dags att gå på en guidad tur i djungeln…

Travel Diary – Week 2

Island Hopping Since I had gone to bed first of everyone, I thought I’d be the first one to wake up. But just after 6 when I woke up and took my earplugs out, I could here several people were already awake. The was a typhoon heading towards where we were, north of Palawan from Cebu and so we had to get up and leave for El Nido earlier than planned. We packed our stuff and swam out to the boat where we were served breakfast. Pancakes. Yes, even for me – the vegan. Our lovely chef had gone above and beyond to make me good food. We arrived to the area just outside of El Nido quite quickly, and by then the captain had gotten information that the typhoon would arrive later than expected. So to make up for the change of our planned route for that day, our…

2016 travel recap

This year has felt very slow and low on the travel part for me. Especially compared to 2015 when I traveled to 20 new countries and went on some epic backpacking trips through New Zealand, the Balkans and Central America. However, someone made me realise that I will actually have visited 4 different continents this year. While 2015 was a travel year dominated by amazing destinations, 2016 has been a travel year where I’ve valued relationships more than ever and I’ve met so many amazing people, and I now understand how important the people you meet are to your experience. I’ve met people that have inspired and impressed me, and I’ve made some very close friends that I will most likely keep for life. This is also the first year where I’ve experienced the magic of vacation romance. But the biggest deal of this year when it comes to my traveling…

Why become a nomad?

I had troubles accepting the way life was designed. The way we were supposed to live. Spending most of our lives working a 40 hour week job, always longing and living for the weekends and vacation. Letting our money go to buying housing, cars, tv:s and other things. Waiting to do stuff until we’re retired when we’ll have the time to be free and go and do whatever we want. It seemed so shallow and meaningless to me. How can we grow if we stay in the same place, doing the same things, meeting the same people?! It wasn’t until about 3 years ago when I started traveling alone that I stumbled upon another way of life. Another option. A lifestyle that I felt right away was the way I was supposed to live. Being free, challenging myself and getting a better understanding of the world and of people. Leading my…
