Hier klicken für die deutsche Version

On our return flight from Ko Samui we visited Bangkok. Bangkok as the capital of Thailand is known for its vibrant life. Through the city and its canals flows the Chao Phraya and is ideal as a means of transport for boats to visit the Old Town Rattanakosin and the Great Palace and Temple Wat Phra Kaeo. One trip costs a maximum of 15 bath (37 bath are one Euro). It is also recommended to take screenshots of Google Maps routes to show them to someone, e.g. if you take the bus.

This year we have chosen Ko Samui as our holiday destination. Ko Samui is a small island in the east of Thailand, whose inhabitants mainly live from fishing and the export of coconuts.

We chose a small boutique hotel in the northwest of the island, as the beaches are hardly built up and there are considerably less tourists.

The hotel was really a very good choice, I have an infinity pool, an area, a fitness area and excellent food. Continue reading “Ko Samui (Thai เกาะสมุย)”

Austria – Ischgl 2018

Ischgl is a very beautiful village with many hotels, restaurants and bars. There are two slopes which end directly in the main shopping street of the village. What a great feeling to snowboard just along all the hotels and stop in the main street of Ischgl. So you can have a coffee or lunch in Ischgl and just continue snowboarding a minute later.

Ischgl has apparently a very busy night life. Ski boots are forbidden after 8pm to reduce noise. So if you want to get some sleep stay outside the center or just in the next village. Continue reading “Austria – Ischgl 2018”

Snowboarding 2018

After Sölden last year we are back in Ischgl. The weather was great, first two days very sunny, two cloudy days great for photos and the last two again very sunny.

To our mind Ischgl is one of the best skiing resorts in Europe if not in the world. A great range of different slopes, 238km in total, fun parks, stunning views, heated cabins, two countries and you can get across the skiing resort in 1 1/2 hours if you wish.

The duty free run down to Switzerland is quite nice with many non EU foreigners shopping in Samnaun. And you even find the customs on the slopes! Continue reading “Snowboarding 2018”
