Doi Inthanon – the highest mountain in Thailand (Mae Hong Son Loop, Day 1)

Русская версия Having tried the motorbike well enough in the mountains of Chiang Mai, the next day we started off for our first destination of the 8-day Mae Hong Son loop route. On this first day we made 300 kilometres by bike, reaching Mae Sariang through Doi Inthanon. This is the highest peak of Thailand surrounded by the national park, called the roof of Thailand.

Tolbachik Volcano (Kamchatka). Part 3: After the Eruptions

Русская версия Ascending Tolbachik volcano, we saw the consequences of its eruption – the hardened lava fields at its foot. Yet, despite the widespread opinion, a volcano eruption is not just the lava flowing out of the crater. The eruption may be seen and heard hundreds of kilometres beyond the crater, in the most unexpected places and not only in the form of lava.

New Vietnamese Adventures: Da Nang and Hoi An

Русская версия Our favourite region in Vietnam is of course Dak Lak, but the rest of the places we visited (excluding Nha Trang) left very positive impression too. On this day it was time to get from Da Lat to Da Nang – the seaside city and a great hub for visiting various sights.

Chiang Mai: The Northern Capital of Thailand

Русская версия Chiang Mai in the north of Thailand deserves visiting for several reasons: it is easy to reach it both from Bangkok and with the international flights from, for instance, China, as we did. Moreover, Chiang Mai is a convenient point to start from for travelling at Mae Hong Son Loop – the circle route in the North of Thailand through the countryside, sanctuaries, and towards the Burmese border (which you may even cross illegally!).

Amsterdam: Red Light District

Русская версия   Victor already described some sights of Amsterdam and is now completing his report with the story about the Red Light District. This post is more of informative kind, not a photo report for various reasons. We still hope that it would be interesting and Victor was right making notes of the Red Light District stories during chilly October evening, instead of staring around 🙂

New Year in Kampala (Uganda)

Русская версия Our today’s post is going to be brief, but priceless! For a couple of years by now we have been trying to avoid making a decision on where, how, and with whom we should celebrate New Year, which salads to cook and outfits to wear. The New Year 2015 became the first celebration of this kind: we spent it in Africa, the capital of Uganda – Kampala.
