    Krabi to Khao Lak

    After Christmas and New Year’s Eve on our beach in Koh Phangan we went to the Andaman Sea and found another great spot near Ao Nang – Krabi. Nowadays overland travelers are very well connected through social media, not only to share information but sometimes also to meet each other. This time we connected via a Whatsapp group and got a visit from 3 vans,…

    From Chiang Mai to Koh Phangan

    In the last 9 months on the road, I frequently had the imagination of camping on a tropical island in my head. That dream also motivated me to start the journey and to continue in difficult times on the road. Last week we drove from Chiang Mai to Bangkok and further along the coast to the port of Surat Thani, where we took the ferry…

    Sawadee Thailand!

    The Bordercrossing After our guided tour through Myanmar, we crossed the border to Thailand in Mae Sai. Bringing your own car to Thailand is a pain at the moment, as authorities installed a new law on the 1st of November. Foreign vehicles are only allowed to enter with a guide and a special permit. But that rule is only enforced in certain borders, and Tachileik/Mae…

The Asian highway No.1, which is the only connection between India and Southeast Asia is maybe the worst road on the way on my trip. Full of dust, potholes, and construction in the middle of the jungle.The border-crossing to Myanmar was quite easy, also because our guide was already waiting…

    Meghalaya – Overlanders Paradise

The van could be fixed immediately and I drove directly to my friends, who were staying in Meghalaya, a few kilometers from the border to Bangladesh. There is no doubt that Meghalaya is one of my favorite places so far. Situated in the hills of the…

    Broken van and the Taj Mahal in smog

    The guys at Mercedes in Guwahati tried to fix my A/C compressor but fucked it up completely. When I started the engine a bad smell appeared and the belt was making a strange noise. On the same day, Zofia flew from Warsaw to Delhi and had a stopover in Vienna. But the flight from Vienna to Delhi was canceled and she had to take a…

    One adventure too much

    Deutsch am Ende des Textes! While I was traveling with Tom and Dan in Nepal, I got bad news from home: Zofia was diagnosed with a tumor on the thyroid. At that time, it was not clear if it was a good or bad tumor. When the suspicion of cancer hardened, it was clear to me that I would fly to Warsaw for her surgery.…
