TRAVELLING UP THE EAST-COAST

After teaching Yoga almost full-time at trunkstudios in Sydney the day came where we had to say goodbye and started travelling again! We took the train to Byron Bay (13 hours !!!) and loved it  right away. The hostel we stayed in was incredible and full of nice people. The Backpackers Inn is located right at the beach and to get there you have to walk through a little sandy path in the woods that felt just like in the beach when Leo enters the beach for the first time! From Byron Bay we took the Bus  up to Brisbane and oh my god who would have thought that Brisbane is the most beautiful city in the world! Not the best – that’s Bangkok for sure – but honestly magnificently gorgeous. I was running around filming and absorbing this beautiful place, practicing yoga with our great host and Yogi Celine. We stayed in her apartment in the 48th floor with an outstanding view over Brisbane. I will never forget the weekend we spent there..

From there we rented a camper van driving all the way up the east-coast to Cairns. The highlights on this trip were the camping ground in Hervey bay and sailing on the Matador yacht to the Whitsundays.  The landscape was so beautiful, especially around Mackay and the way up to Cairns. Also living and cooking in our car was just an extraordinary experience. A great way to travel especially with your partner. After 11 days we finally arrived on the airport and were super excited for our last trip together …

BANGKOK

RECOMMENDATIONS

where to stay?

I RECOMMEND TO STAY CLOSE TO SUKHUMVIT – ONE OF THE MAIN ROADS OF BANGKOK. PROBABLY BEST BETWEEN THE STATIONS PHROM PHONG AND SIAM. THERE YOU CAN ALWAYS TAKE THE BTS, WALK OR TAKE A TAXI.

The best hostel i have stayed at in asia so far is Yim Yam Hostel & Garden! It has the perfect location, 800 m from MBK at Phya Thai BTS Station.

BUT THE PLACE THAT TOUCHES ME THE MOST IS A LITTLE OUTSIDE BANGKOK, CALLEd RAMKHAMHAENG. YOU CAN STAY THERE VERY CHEAP, quiet and beautiful in a place called @home or JJ Residence. Me and my friends have stayed there in our semester abroad but they also provide rooms on a daily basis. Unfortunately iT tAKES pretty LONG TO GO TO THE CITY CENTER.

Sofitel JUST OPPOSITE THE PARk ENTRANCE AND PRETEND TO BE A GUEST AND GO UP to the pool in the 10th floor .. or kindly ask 😉

Also just a couple of minutes down the street in this Area (but a must see at night) is Banyan Tree Hotel and their Skybar Vertigo..
the most breath taking view over Bangkok!

After the stunning views you can go back to the BTS Station Sala Daeng and next to the bts station is a branch of wine connection with excellent food for lunch or dinner.

a little further on the right side of the street you will reach Patpong !
Its A GREAT NIGHT MARKET SURROUNDED BY RED LIGHT DISTRICT, where you can buy the best fake gadgets in Bangkok. (Opens at 5 pm).

From here you can catch a Tuk Tuk .. not more than 50 Bath !!! .. to the beautiful LEBUA state tower and visit the

                                  SIROCCO SKY BAR

in 63. Floor .. BETTER KNOWN AS HANGOVER Bar from the Movie.
It iS A VERY IMPRESSIVE AND SPECIAL PLACE AND IF YOU GET THE CHANCE YOU SHOULD DEFINITELY GO THERE TO WATCH THE SUNSET! (opens at 6pm) So either Do Patpong quickly or visit the night market afterwards.

JUST ACROSS THE STREET from Lebua sTATE tOWER you'll FIND A magical, CRAZY Bar and Restaurant - DEFINITELY worth VISIT: MAGGIE CHOO’s!

Also the Area around Lebua State Tower is just amazing!
The clash of cultures and mix of impressions are unforgettable!
