      Phu quoc island

      March 29, 2023 in Vietnam

      Hey lovely souls,
      I had a great week in Phu Quoc Island with my friend Marcel who is travelling with me for one month.
      We rented a scooter, checked out several beaches, (live music) bars, the night market, did a snorkeling trip on surrounding islands, went parasailing, went on a cable car to a water park, visited little italy and caught the sunset almost everyday with a mocktail by our side.

      Phu Quoc is quite big, you would need about 1,5h from north to south with the scooter. The roads are mainly paved and it's quite comfortable to drive with the scooter.

      But there were also negative experiences on our journey. Many beaches were filled with trash - Mainly plastic. We witnessed a fight on the streets where 1 guy was beaten up by 7 other boys. We were really shocked by the brutality and sudden change of situation.

      As always, I try to highlight one learning/observation that I had from my stay and it is about traveling alone vs with someone else. For me both have its beauty. It is really nice to share the experiences with someone you know. However traveling alone gives you more flexibility and freedom to do whatever you want without taking the time to discuss and to decide. Anyways, I appreciate and enjoy both options. By now Marcel and I have found our travel groove and enjoy the time together.
      He told me he's super happy to travel around here and that he's impressed by how open, kind, warmhearted and welcoming the people are who we've met so far. For example, one day we were strolling along an empty beach and got spontaneously invited by some locals to join them for some food and drinks. We even played some songs for them and sang karaoke.

      Summing up staying in Phu Quoc was a wonderful experience and we would love to go on another island soon.
      Breathe and smile,
      Kim and Marcel

      Pepper farm, Phu Quoc

      April 22, 2023 in Vietnam ⋅ ☀️ 32 °C

      Visite d’une plantation de poivre sur l’île de Phu Quoc ! Explication des « différents » poivres, à savoir le vert, le noir, le blanc et le rouge. C’est la même plante mais ils ne sont pas obtenus avec le même procédé ! (Ne me dites pas que vous le saviez je vais passer pour quoi après ?)
      Ils nous avaient prêté un chapeau, le « Non la », si typique ici ahah
      Bien sûr que j’en ai acheté pour mon plus grand fan de poivre 😉

      Wir sind dort, wo der Pfeffer wächst

      February 24, 2020 in Vietnam ⋅ ☀️ 30 °C

      Heute haben wir einen spannenden Ausflug auf eine Pfefferplantage gemacht.

      Für alle, die in einem Wutanfall gern jemand dort hin wünschen, wo der Pfeffer wächst, sei gesagt: dort ist es eigentlich ziemlich schön 😉

      Wir genossen eine Führung durch die Pfefferplantage und lernten so einiges über grüne, schwarze, rote und weiße scharfe Kügelchen; wie diese wachsen und ihre Farbe enthalten und welche Kugeln für welches Essen am besten geeignet sind.

      Unsere besuchte Pfefferfarm zog jedoch nicht nur Pfeffer heran, sondern auch noch jede Menge Früchte und braute ihr eigenes Bier.
      Um die Kunst des Bierbrauens zu erlernen, ist ein Mitarbeiter extra (wie sollte es anders sein) nach Deutschland geflogen 😅

      Das vietnamesische Bier schmeckt immernoch anders als das deutsche, aber durchaus auch sehr gut 🍻
      Und statt in Zukunft Schokolade und Chips vor dem Fernseher zu snacken, lassen sich diese auch wunderbar durch gepfeffertes Obst ersetzen 😉

      February 23, 2017 in Vietnam ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

      Since 3 days, we are on Phu Quoc island. It's also my last destination together with Martina.

      Today we went to a bee farm. While we ate breakfast there, the friendly staff explained us a lot about the "circle of life" from the bees. It was so interesting!!
      They also have a lot of local fruits and plants, that's why the honey tastes soo good. :) Another nice attractaion was the little mushroom tent, where they grow shitake in a very special way. Just great!

      The place is very lovely and definitely a visit worth!
