Hiking to the Elephant Mountain in Taipei

During my visit to Hong Kong I met a fellow traveller from Taiwan and he told me about the many mountains and hiking routes that exist in Taiwan. This was something new to me as I always thought Taiwan was a small island with little to no mountains. So after coming to Taipei ...

Crazy night markets in Taipei

Before coming to Taipei, I've heard that the Taiwanese are crazy about their night markets. And o-boy they surely are! I've seen a couple night markets since I arrived in Taipei; one in Taipei  Bridge and the other one in the city centre near my hostel. But to fully experience a real night ...

Free walking tour in Taipei

Although I prefer to explore new areas on my own, sometimes it's great to have a local guide to tell you more about the background stories and histories of the places you are visiting. Usually this kind of guides do cost a bit but I've also seen and joined free guides as well ...

Biggest electronic mall in Taipei

This vlog was set just right after my previous vlog where I explored the huge market in Taipei Bridge and then ate a delicious lunch in the park. So after eating my lunch I packed my bags and moved to the new hostel in the city centre. The new hostel turned to be ...

Huge food market in Taipei Brigde

Today I decided to move to a new hostel closer to the city centre of Taipei. This would make it more convenient to move around in Taipei. Besides the new hotel was supposed to be cheaper as well. However this turned out to be not quite true as I would describe more in ...

Amazing vegetarian food in Taipei

Today was my first real day in Taipei and my goal for the day was to wander to the city centre and find an USB-based battery-charger for my camera. I've heard that there was a city quarter that had a lot of camera shops. This quest of finding an USB-based charger has been ...

So after six months of travelling in  Southeast Asia I was now heading to the new region of East Asia. My journey to the region started off at Taipei, Taiwan. Taiwan was a country that I wanted to visit because of it's history that I learned way back in high school. Considering the ...

Layover in Cebu

I'd already planned to visit Taiwan after the Philippines, but the cheapest option to get to Taiwan was through Philippines second largest city Cebu. So to Cebu I went and stayed there for 24 hours before heading to Taipei. Cebu was quite similar to Manila; there was this big city vibe to it. ...

My first crisis during travel in Asia

So it was bound to happen! For the very first time I actually experienced a "crisis" during my travel in Asia. It happened when I lost my wallet when wandering around Coron to explore more for the city. Inside my wallet I had 900 pesos and my credit card. Losing those wasn't actually ...

Climbing to Mount Tapyas in Coron

Today was my last full day in Coron before heading back to Puerto Princessa then Cebu. Instead of doing more sea or island activities I wanted to explore more of  Coron town itself and what better than to climb to the highest viewpoint in Coron? The climb to the highest viewpoint, which also ...

Vandring i Manilas gater i Filippinene

Vlogg #152 Filippinene var det nok det landet som jeg var mest skeptisk til å besøke. Mye av årsaken ligger i alt det negative jeg har lest om landet knyttet til vold, kidnapping og tyveri. Men å reise til sør-øst uten å besøke Filippinene ville vært svært synd. Jeg ble dessuten kjent med ...

Flyplassen i Bali

Vlogg #151 Jeg dro ganske tidlig til flyplassen i Bali selv om mitt fly til Manila, Filippinene ikke ikke tok av før senere på kvelden. Flyplassen i Bali viste jeg å være litt mer spesiell enn andre flyplasser..

Vandring til Seminyak, Bali

Vlogg #148 Det var godt å ta en pause fra vandring, utforsking og filming i noen dager. Jeg lå rett og slett i hostellet og hvilte kroppen samtidig som jeg prøvde å laste opp alle mine videoer og bilder til en skytjeneste. Men idag var jeg klar igjen til å vandre igjen! Jeg ...

Ankomst i Legian, Bali

Vlogg #147 Fra Ubud tok jeg mini-van til strandbyen Legian, et område som ligger like ved det mer kjente og turistostedet Kuta. Planen var å hvile her i noen dager for deretter å bruke det som base for å dra på  småturer til andre steder i Bali. Jeg trengte dessuten god internet forbindelse ...

Unike templer i Bali

Vlogg #146 I min tredje dag i Ubud  dro jeg på en tour som tok meg til de kjente templene og attraksjonene ikke langt fra Ubud. Jeg må si at Bali har kanskje de mest unike templene jeg har sett hittil i min reise gjennom Asia. Arkitekturen ser veldig veldig gammel ut samt figurer ...

En dag i Ubud, Bali

Vlogg #145 Jeg ble vekket ganske tidlig om morgenen til noen lyder utenfor soveværelset. Det visste seg at eierne av gjestehuset hadde en religiøs seremoni med svært unike ritualer jeg ikke hadde sett før. Det var spennende å være vitne til en svært kulturell begivenhet i Bali som inntreffer kun to ganger i ...
