A Hobbit, Spaceship, Tropical Breakfast Love Story - SS1254372 Cafe

Being a photographer and choosing my food according to the looks of it, I spend a good amount of time looking at food pictures.

And I sure ended up finding the best one at SS1254372 Cafe.

Eating my way through Pad Thai to Pad See Ew to some unknown noodle soup served by local street food vendors missing any English menu description. Pad Thai and Pad See Ew were my safe go-to options, though I soon learned that being able to pronounce “vegetarian” (and ideally being able to explain that it means no meat at all) in Thai is of great help as well.

Everyone has different expectations when they travel. We all come from different backgrounds, prefer different things and have unique ways of how we like to see the world.

This became obviously clear to me during my recent trip to South East Asia. I spent a considerable amount of time researching cafes, restaurants and hotels, reading Google and Tripadvisor reviews, marking them on Google Maps, and then spent even more time trying out all the places. Over the course of 2,5 months travelling I became pretty good at researching and assessing places.
