Tioman and Redang, spectacular islands east of Peninsular Malaysia

When we reached Malaysia, we had the opportunity to meet a sailboat captain. Thanks to him, we learned the basics of sailing and discovered the islands of Tioman and Redang – spectacular islands located east of peninsular Malaysia. On the list: dream beaches with white sand, surrounded by coconut trees, lush vegetation and turquoise water in which we spent hours swimming!

Hiking through the past on Lamma Island – Hong Kong

When we arrived in Hong Kong by the sea in the middle of the night, we dropped the anchor off a semi-wild, semi-industrialized island called Lamma Island. From the boat, we watched fascinated the island’s busy fishermen on their small boats, wondering if we were actually in Hong Kong… When after a few months temperatures became bearable (unlike the city life, which had become unbearable), we remembered Lamma and decided to give it a go.

A visit to Nagorno Karabakh

Post updated on November 12, 2020

Hitchhiking through the south of Armenia, with our first Armenian host (who became a friend) Mariam, an idea came out: what if we visited Nagorno Karabakh, before leading to Iran? Mariam offered us her help: she convinced Edgar, one of her acquaintances, to accommodate us in Shushi (or Susa) – a strategic, magnificent and historical city located a few kilometers from Stepanakaert, the administrative capital of Nagorno Karabakh. The beginning of a crazy visit into the heart of this self-proclaimed republic…

The Chiatura’s rusted cable cars – Georgia

When we were advised to visit Kastkhi Peak (a monastery built on the top of a narrow rocky outcrop, 45m above the ground), the name Chiatura was also mentioned. “It’s a very old mining town, partially abandoned, located at the bottom of a valley… There are about 17 cable car lines in the town to take you up to the heights. Take them; you will have a nice view of the town and the nearby mountains!” We quickly realized, once we got there, that the (really nice) lookouts would be nothing if there wasn’t something even nicer: a ride on rusted cable cars.

Buzludzha, exploration of a communist UFO – Bulgaria

I don’t know about you, but as for us we love exploring old abandoned buildings. That’s why we really wanted, since our first day in Bulgaria, to explore Buzludzha: a building built on top of a mountain, with typical “hammer and sickle” architecture, completely abandoned since… thirty years. When we say “abandoned”, it’s not quite true: scavengers, squatters and exploratoration amateurs visit it one after the other… Interested in this communist UFO? We will tell you everything to know about this crazy exploration!
