Lio Beach in El Nido Philippines

June 13, 2018
Sunset Lio Beach

The Philippines have become my favorite country in the world, simply because the locals here are so friendly and joyful and somehow all of them are extremely good singers. But that’s not all that makes the Philippines such a great place. There are countless beautiful islands and beaches where you would think you have arrived in paradise. I stayed in El Nido, Palawan for 11 days and have explored some really paradise-like beaches around El Nido town during that time.…

Submariner Diving Center El Nido

When I planned my trip to El Nido I actually already thought about going diving there since I heard it is one of the most beautiful dive sites in Southeast Asia. I never dived before so I decided to just wait until I was in El Nido and then see if there is a good dive shop there. The day I arrived, I found the Submariner Diving Center and just went in to ask questions about the diving courses etc.…

Being an Exchange Student in Singapore

January 8, 2018
Singapore Gardens by the Bay

This post might come slightly late but I just want to share my experiences of being an exchange student in Singapore with anyone who is considering this country for an exchange program. When I chose Singapore for my one year exchange, I had never been to this country before and I didn’t hear too much about it either. But that was okay and it was a thrill for me to just go to an unknown land and just see what…

Ho Chi Minh City – The City of Motorbikes

January 5, 2018

If you have ever been to Ho Chi Minh City you might have noticed the mass of motorbikes driving around the city. And there are certainly no rules when driving but somehow it works. Don’t ask me why. Also, don’t even try to stop and wait to cross the road, you just have to start walking or else you will still be stuck on one side of the road at the end of the day. Trust me. That said, let…
