Just to keep the motion alive

  1. Better one day in Asian heat, than a month in European street snow and mud
  2. If I had spent more time on travelings, instead in offices, I would be a different person today
  3. If I posses boots 700 EUR worth, I would swap it for an airplane ticket 
  4. It is not all about destination. There is something in a movement itself
  5. You can not run away from your head, not even at tropical island 
  1. We should be grateful for each new day, good and bad. Because at the end, everything is good 
  2. No matter how many words I learn in Asia, when I come back, I know only "Hallo" and "Thank you"
  3. But I rock Thai English. "Rie" instead of "rice", "load" instead of "road"! 
  4. It is cool to buy T Shirts with names of cities, although it can look like tourist cliche 
  5. Spare amount of blonde hair color is priceless. In Asia, it costs a bunch
Blonde curse 
  1. It is always good to have spare body waxing strips
  2. Durian fruit is extra healthy, but it tastes and smells like hell. Combination of fatty soap and rotten cabbage 
  3. Algae snacks are 10 times better than chips 
  4. I can eat red curry soup every day 
  5. Buckets of alcohol are not for amateurs. It can cause amnesia and unbelievable feeling of shame tomorrow 
Neighborhood at Koh Phangan 
Neighborhood at Siem Reap
  1. Tuk-tuk drive is always fun. Especially if Thai woman sits on accumulator 
  2. If you wait for a traffic light, you will never cross the street in Saigon 
  3. Improvisation - mother. How to measure waist at Koh Phangan? With roommate`s shoe lace and building meter that you borrowed from landlord 
  4. Sak Yant tattoos are cheapest in temples 
  5. After regular massage, one easily becomes horny 
Who needs a traffic light?
  1. Never enough of Tiger Balm. Next time I will bring transport box 
  2. At Koh Phangan, there is a frog that sound like a cow 
  3. Monkeys are not sweet little animals! They are thiefs. Be careful at Batu Caves in Kuala Lumpur 
  4. Sarong is a must have accessories for beach, bus/boat transfer, motorbike ride and for night sleep 
  5. I am not going anywhere without sleeping mask 
Holiday in Cambodia
  1. If you can not get your tan, check if you bought body milk with whitener. Almost every one consist it 
  2. Koh Phangan hospital nurses are not so gentle 
  3. Water and color splash for Songkram (New Year, April 13) is total madness
  4. I would leave a last dollar to Cambodia children
  5. ...Just to keep the motion alive

25 things that SE Asia travel thought me

  1. My home and office are wherever I stay longer than one day
  2. It is always good to know where is the nearest Immigration. Maybe you will need visa extension or one more  entrance to a country
  3. Health insurance is an ultimate must have
  4. Hanging at the street corner is love. Cafes are overrated
Soi Rambuttri, 4 AM
  1. All feelings are 10 times stronger. Both happiness and identity crisis
  2. Sooner or later, you will meet again all important people you met on the road
  3. Time passes insensibly. I got that after two months of traveling, in Saigon
  4. Coconut oil can be applied at skin, hair and bread. The best is at the first one - «You are so brown!»
Hotel flip-flops. Sweet and symbolic
  1. If you don`t point out «footscrub» to a pedicure lady, you will, probably, get only nails      polishing
  2. Fresh coconut is the best natural isotonic. It raises from the dead on a massive heat and cures hangover
  3. In rainy season, crawling animals are a bit bigger from average
  4. Vietnamese coffee is the best I`ve ever tried
Trung Nguyen Coffee 
  1. One big Chang (Thai beer, 6.5%) is enough for one`s perception to change
  2. In jungle, you can hear a sound that is similar to alarm clock
  3. Sunsets are not a romantic, cheesy thing. Nature is stronger than Photoshop and psychedelics 
  4. It is not cool to drive around in bikini in Sihanoukville. It is normal at Koh Phangan
No filter. 3 MP camera 
Jungle cleans the head 
  1. You always need a spare pair of flip flops. They are truly easy to loose at the beach party
  2. Muay Thai fighters are really good looking. Too bad they are, often, shorter than me
  3. A number of bracelets is decreasing in Phnom Penh. I left it at Death fields 
  4. The best anti-mosquitos combination consist of spirals, temple incense and Sketolen repellent 
Bangkok fight
  1. Thai paracetamol is 5 time stronger than Serbia one 
  2. There is a couple of Rihanna`s songs that are not sooo trashy
  3. I can not always recognize a ladyboy
  4. 7 11 mart is good for breakfast after clubbing... as well as for dinner and hangout 
  5. Koh Phangan becomes more and more serious party island 
The institution!
