My second chapter with WiFi Tribe: Chiang Mai, Thailand – Photo Bomb #3

I can’t keep up.

The Thailand chapter is over, and I haven’t published a single post about it. Shame on me. Because it was a doozy.

Chiang Mai & the Digital Nomad Life

Chiang Mai is a wonderful city for digital nomads – for any adventure traveler, really.

Want to know why? Read WiFi Tribe’s article on exactly that topic.

Other than that, check out what exactly we did, and how Chiang Mai became our home for four weeks. Continue reading “My second chapter with WiFi Tribe: Chiang Mai, Thailand – Photo Bomb #3”

Bye Bye Bali – Photo Bomb #2

Bye bye Bali! *sniff*

Thank you for waiting until we left you before letting Mount Agung fully erupt and close down all air traffic for travelers.

That was really big of you.

Bali-Belly, Magic Roads, Frogs That Live In Picture Frames

The first week in Bali is over. Schwups, gone.

Unbelievable!

A lot of it is just how I imagined it to be:

  • The tribers are amazing. Everyone is open, easy-going, helpful and enjoys life.
  • We do, actually, work a lot. Seriously, we do!
  • The villas are gorgeous, just like the photos on the website promised. Here’s one of mine, from Villa 2 where I’m staying:
