Bye bye blogging – hello countryside

The last time I used my netbook before it died...

Great! just when i was telling everybody how happy i was with my notebook, it decided to break down. I went to about every PC shop here in Battambang City (the second city in Cambodia) but there is only hope left if I’d take my ailing computer to Phnom Penh or even an Acer Service Centre = Bangkok…

I will be back on the radar – the latest at 5 April when i fly from Phnom Penh to Bangkok (for a ridiclous 25 US$ with AirAsia) to meet with my best Brussels friend that’ll be visiting me. Yippee.

Adios

But after more than a week in Laos, more particularly in Muang Ngoi (paradise), where there’s nothing much to do anyway, I am becoming Continue reading

My Travel Philosophy

“ A young man sets out to find Happiness.

On his quest, he encounters a wise Lion, who is willing to show him the road to Happiness. But only on one condition… When the young man finds happiness, he has to bring it back with him. If not, the Lion will devour him.

So it will be, the young man promised and set out on his search. He passed through forests and over mountains, crossing rivers and taking bumpy roads. And he still hadn’t found Happiness.

One day he met a beautiful Lady Continue reading
