Laos & Thailand - 03. Apr. 2019
After five years I’m back in Vientiane, the capital of Laos. From there I am riding towards Vietnam to do the second part of my crossing of Southeast Asia on the bike. The first impression of five years ago still remains this time. How can such a small town be the capital of a country as big as Laos?
Hpa-an, Myanmar - 01. Sep. 2018
It is dark, cold and humid. I’m stumbling with no shoes over sharp stones and bat excrement deeper into this cave. In front of me a huge stalagmite is building up. I try to keep my balance on the slippery ground. He must be build up in thousands of years. A fresh breeze of wind from behind reminds me that I have almost reached the exit of the cave. The first sunbeams fall into the darkness and reveal the true extent of this cave.
Mawlamyine, Myanmar - 30. Aug. 2018
Mawlamyaing, Mawlamyine or Moulmein. Even the name sounds exotic promising. And even promising is the fact that this city is not on the “normal” route through myanmar. This is reason enough to visit this city once and find a piece of normality in Myanmar.
