• The time that this little island was solely a diving paradise is long gone! Just like any other popular tourist destination in Thailand are many tourists and travelers finding its way to this tiny little nirvana in the Gulf of Thailand. Traveling to Thailand is popular than ever before. Nowadays not only for the amazing underwater world anymore: hiking to the amazing Koh Tao viewpoints is getting more and more popular.

  • For a lot of travelers this little hill town overlooking Dharamsala feels like coming home. Loads of people call McLeod their home for a couple months per year. It is not only the vibe that makes people visit this picturesque town. The historical background is also why a lot people make their way up here. It was the Dalai Lama that found refuge here after he was named persona non grata in China. In his trace loads of monks followed him and everywhere in town you can find them. May be that’s one of the reasons this village radiates such a peaceful vibe. The monks are happy to take a picture with you or teach you about Buddhism if you are interested. Nowadays you can even find iMonks: the ones making pictures of the sunset with their Ipads!

    No I don’t like to tick off countries and if you have been following my adventures over the years I love to slow-travel and see as much of a country as possible. But unfortunately due to a full travel schedule I only had one and a half day for my trip to Kosovo, one of the youngest countries in the world.
