    A short visit to Myeik

    October 25, 2016 in Myanmar

    This day went unexpected for me, but very good in the end!

    I got up at 4am to make it to the airport in Yangon and arrived at Myeik in the south at 9am in the morning. By 11:30, I had checked into my hostel, walked through town a bit and was sitting in the local travel agency to book snorkelinging and sea kayaking trips, but due to a storm, everything had been cancelled. Gathering alternatives, I quickly decided to go to Kawthoung, a 30 minute flight south of here. I got to the airport just in time for the daily flight, and around 2pm, I was in the tropical, charming town at the very southern tip of Myanmar.

    Awesome: here you take motorbike taxis - even with a huge backpack on, the town is surrounded by lush jungle and palm trees, there are hundreds of small islands off the shore - three of which I will explore tomorrow!

    Today's pictures are of the harbor city Myeik and it's tiny airport :)

    Work work work :)

    October 27, 2016 in Myanmar

    I usually bring in some adventure even on the days I'm working, but today was almost all work. I enjoy what I do and the people I work with, and it allows me to make some money while I'm traveling, so I have no complaints.

    One little lovely adventure: I went for dinner in town and ended up at a small birthday celebration by the water in this little, cozy fishing town of Kawthaung. Beers, young new friends playing the guitar and kids playing soccer in the park. Sorry, forgot to take pictures :)Read more

    Myanmar (Kawthoung)

    December 9, 2016 in Myanmar

    Woop woop! We hebben de gammele boottocht over de rivier overleefd, en hadden plezier bij immigratie. Officials die tegen ons zeiden hoe gemakkelijk dat e-visum wel niet was, en inderdaad het is erg snel.

    Morgen vliegen we naar Dawei!

    Kawthaung

    May 6, 2016 in Myanmar

    Crossed the border to Myanmar from Ranong by boat. Apparently, I'm the only tourist! This is both nice and annoying, since I got followed around all morning by someone trying to sell me things. Luckily my relatively peaceful stroll around town in the late afternoon made up for this, so I go to bed with a smile on my face :)

    P.S. not my best pictures, but I felt awkward making pictures being the only tourist...Read more

    Kawthaung - Myanmar

    November 14, 2016 in Myanmar

    Wir sind gut in Myanmar angekommen. Jedoch total erledigt und erschöpft, da die Überfahrt anstrengend war so wie die Einwanderung und das Zurechtkommen im neuen Land.
    Nach einer kurzen Dusche haben wir uns trotzdem schon einen Eindruck von der Stadt verschafft und auch unsere erste Pagode besichtigt.
    Da der Süden Myanmars erst später für Touristen zugänglich war als der Rest des Landes, sind wir hier noch so etwas wie Außerirdische - zumindest werden wir von den Einheimischen so angestarrt^^ Das ist zwar etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig - jedoch sind die Leute hier sehr freundlich, winken uns zu, lächeln uns an und sagen "hello" ;)Read more
