Agung: the highest volcano in Bali


Agung Volcano in Bali

I climbed the highest volcano in Bali and 4th highest in Indonesia! It was long, tought and unbelievably cool: we spent 12 hours at the Mount Agung (from the start until the finish), slept under the sky full of stars, climbed extremely steep cliff (at some places 45 degrees) and observed incredible sunrise from the summit of 3000m. It was he most  physically difficult, but most incredible, thing I have ever done so far! When other tourists had left the summit and we stayed alone, I screamed from happiness! Read More →

Bali: secret beach escape


Bali beach

Few days ago a friend of mine showed me one absolutely amazing place here in Bali. I thought I saw it all, but this place was totally new and totally blew up my mind. One can only get there at the very low tide and stay there only during the lowest tide. It basically means, just one hour in the morning and one hour in the evening (this was the case which tide levels in June 2015). Read More →

Banaue, green side of Philippines

Just 8-9 hours bus ride from Manila up to the north and you are in the middle of beautiful green rice terraces. My school friend came to visit me in Philippines, so we went together to explore the green part of this country. Read More →

Indonesia: 5 reasons why I felt in love with it



1. People
It is a common thing to think that people in Southeast Asia are friendly. I cannot agree more. So when I think about Indonesia, I only remember incredibly friendly people, their sincere smiles (especially those I experienced in Java), hospitality and readiness to help and show the way. Read More →

In love with sunsets: Bali, Indonesia


Bali Sunset

Do you like sunsets as I do? Bali is said to have the most beautiful sunsets! And I can not agree more! Since three weeks I have been hanging around Bali, mostly Bukit, the southern part of the island. I rented a bike for a month and every day I tried to go somewhere new searching for a nice spot. I must admit, most of the time I was looking for a nice spot to catch the sun! So here are my favorite sunset places around Bukit in Bali. Read More →

Flashback to Cameron Highlands, Malaysia



Flashback to Cameron Highlands, my favorite place in Malaysia, where I felt like at home. The place where I could breathe freely and fill my lungs with fresh mountain air. Yes, it was very cold at night! And yes, I slept in all my warm clothes plus the woolen scarf and the blanket. Yes, it has been raining everyday in the afternoon. And yes, I spent amazing 4 days there! I was in Cameron Highlands in January 2015 (sorry for the delayed post), but this place still remains the highlight of my one month stay in Malaysia.
