A Day Trip to Tübingen

While spending time in the South of Germany I visited the charming old town that is Tübingen. Situated along the Neckar river are typical old German houses, made even more beautiful by the colourful flower arrangements gracing the river banks. In summer students spend their days and nights sitting on the stone walls by the river, sipping mate or sharing a bottle of wine, overlooking the gondolas floating by.

My Favourite Hoi An Food and Coffee Spots

I spent about a week in Hoi An - one last stop after my Bali and Thailand travels before heading back to Melbourne. I can’t say I’ve seen Vietnam, but I’ve definitely seen Hoi An and explored every corner of it - especially in terms of food and coffee. I’ve also met a lot of amazing people. I loved how easy it was to make connections and new friends in Hoi An. I believe it was this combination of good people, good food and good drinks, that made Hoi An so special. Not necessarily all the lanterns, the water, the romantic atmosphere, the flowers and all that attracts masses of tourists, but those small encounters and special discoveries.

A complete food and coffee guide to Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai’s food scene is huge! I doubt that even a few months of living there would be enough to try every single cafe. You’ll probably find yourself exploring the city’s culinary highlights a few times per day given it’s cheaper, easier and quicker to eat out than to cook yourself. I spent a considerable amount of time researching and finding the best food spots the city has to offer, and so I’ve put together this guide to the best food of Chiang Mai - based on the places I managed to try myself and would actually recommend (or not recommend, as noted below).

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. I had seen several tropical french toast creations all over the internet before coming to Chiang Mai, and that’s exactly what I wanted for breakfast on my very first morning there. And I sure ended up finding the best one at SS1254372 Cafe.
