Life is too short

Written on December 24th, 2016. It's been an amazing trip so far, for me personally. I started a few posts when I was on my way out here, not quite sure how I felt about coming back to Khao Lak after so many years. Not sure how I would feel about, or manage, all the … Continue reading Life is too short


The path to happiness

So, I haven't written anything in a while. Well, I wrote a bunch of stuff prior to and during my trip back to Thailand but as mentioned, I haven't been able to publish those blogs. Yet... And since I got back from my trip I haven't been able to write. Partially because I have been really … Continue reading The path to happiness

I am finally going home!

Written on December 3rd, 2016. I am going home. For the first time in 10 years, I'm going back to Thailand. I'm nervous and excited all at once.

At first I thought I'd just pop down to Mexico and maybe do some … Continue reading Nicaragua – back on a shoestring!

Costa Rican adventures – or “Why 41-year olds don’t go backpacking”

So I got really inspired lately, to travel the way I used to in my 20's: without much planning and by 'figuring it out as I go along'. Not so much out of nostalgia to be honest but more so, as a reaction against what my life has become over the last few years, which … Continue reading Costa Rican adventures – or “Why 41-year olds don’t go backpacking”

Rediscovering the life I love(d) to live

Recently I have started re-evaluating my life and the way I have been living it for the last 10 years or so. In all fairness I should probably say "the way I lived my whole adolescent and adult life to date", with a brief interjection when I quit my corporate job at Ericsson and turned dive … Continue reading Rediscovering the life I love(d) to live
