A few weeks ago my best friend Fie was finally flying in for a visit. We did travel a lot together already in Mexico, Belize, Iceland, Denmark and Thailand, but it was the first time I could host her in Germany, so I was really happy!
Fie is from Copenhagen and hosted me 3 times already showing me
Since I am a little kid, every time I come to Garmisch Partenkirchen, Bavaria, I see people Paragliding and wish I could be up there flying around together with them!!
Back then I didn't have any experience with that. I had never been on a plane, on top of a mountain or flying. - But I already want
After trying out my first free dives at Hol Chan Reef successfully I decided to finally do my PADI open water certificate while still being in Caye Caulker, Belize!

The Day after visiting The Great Blue Hole I decided to do my PADI, but I was still a bit scared, so I agreed to do another snorkel tour first to see the Hol Chan Marine Reserve and Shark Ray Alley, where I could practise free dive first and see how I feel with the pressure equalisation under water

After watching a really beautiful sunrise in Sukhothai and taking a small nap after, @martibis and I decided to go on to our next destination: Chiang Mai
So we packed our things, checked out the hostel and started hitchhiking to the hostel. In theory it is an about 4-5 hours drive to Chiang Mai, bu
After our exhausting 11 hrs of hitchhiking we still talked a lot and had some beers at night - starving, because the kitchen was already closed together with every other food stand in the little village.
So when the alarm rang at 6am I was super tired and NOT AT ALL motivated to get up for the sunr
After returning to Bangkok we enjoyed another day at the rooftop pool, where @martibis and I planed our next steps of the trip.
Sadly Fie had to fly back home and leave our little group in the evening. Of course we brought her personally to the taxi.
Our plan for the next week was to go to Ayutt
After a few days enjoying the beach life at Koh Lanta and my adventurous dive at Koh Haa @martibis and I decided to come along with Fie to Bangkok, because she already had to fly home to Denmark.
Fie and I would take the boat to Railay Beach, enjoy the day there and later at night take a plane to B
