    Lake Garda's Little Brother

    June 16, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    Everyone’s heard of Italy’s Lake Como. Most people know of Lake Garda. But not many know about the little brother – Lake Iseo. Secluded, tranquil and superbly beautiful, the fourth largest lake in Lombardy, Italy is the perfect traveller’s secret 🤫

    The largest island on Lake Iseo is Monte Isola (which can be accessed easily via the regular running lake ferries). As the name suggests, this is a mountain island and the biggest lake island in Italy. It towers up 275 metres and has gathered little townships at its feet.Read more

    Taka Makassar Island

    June 11, 2019 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Making friends with Komodo’s wildlife

    June 5, 2019 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    The Komodo dragon exists only on four small islands in the Komodo National Park, in the southern part of Indonesia. The animal’s isolation from the rest of the planet is what has ensured its survival for so long. But be warned: Komodo dragons are dangerous! So if you prefer to hang out with peaceful giants in the ocean, I’d suggest swimming with Manta Rays at Manta Point Komodo! Although Mantas don’t seem to feel threatened or fearful of humans, it is recommended to avoid touching them and above all riding them. So please respect their natural habitat and don’t discomfort them by getting too close.Read more

    Padar is absolutely surreal!!!!

    June 3, 2019 in Indonesia ⋅ 🌬 28 °C

    Padar, the third largest island of Komodo National Park, has an absolutely surreal landscape! Three turquoise bays and each one of the bays’ beaches has different coloured sand: One is pearly white, another charcoal black, and a third is a very rare baby pink!

    Beach Life @ Gili Trawangan

    May 20, 2019 in Indonesia ⋅ ☀️ 30 °C

    While it’s known as the “party island” of the Gili’s, and easily one of the best party islands in South-East Asia, there’s a lot more to Gili Trawangan: From eating delicious food, stunning sunsets, beautiful beaches and crystal clear water you’ll honestly never want to leave Gili Trawangan...

    Snorkeling at Gili Meno

    May 17, 2019 in Indonesia ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    Meno has a large stretch of sandy beach as well as excellent spots for snorkeling. You can see live corals, fishes and maybe even a turtle if you are lucky 🐢

    And if you spot a penguin at Gili Meno? Then you either have hallucinations or you spotted my humble self – Phil the world’s one and only travel penguin 🐧

    BTW: In case you're wondering about the crazy diver in the first photo - that's Tobias, my dad, the founder of FindPenguins and probably the one and only person in the world who travelled even more than I did ✈️
