- Happy New Years everybody! Wish you love, luck and health... My night was the opposite to last years new years eve. My drinks for this night was black coffee, had an indian/asian chicken curry with my travel mate Keegan and been hanging out at a roof top bar and a small crazy bar with a very mixed crowd. 00:30am was the end for me. Back to the hotel room to call some family and friends and try to get sleepy. Doesn't really work for me after all these coffees. But I guess I can sleep at the bus tomorrow back to Hanoi and then when we'll spend the next night at the airport.

- Hej Rebecka ! Du verkar leva ett mycket spännande och roligt liv i Australien och nu är det så att jag är väldigt sugen på att flytta dit några månader . Jag undrar lite hur ni gjorde med era visum , vad ni har för visum? Hur länge ni får stanna ? Och hur ni kan få jobb ? Eftersom jag kommer vara tvungen att jobba där om jag flyttar dit , så är jag nyfiken på om det är möjligt ! :)
- Hej, förlåt för oerhört svar. Jag levde ett fantastiskt spännande och lärorikt liv i Australien i 13 månader. Jag och min vän D åkte tid i november 2012 efter att ha fått våra 1åriga Working Holiday visum. Med de får man vara anställd på ett ställe upp till 6 månader. Därefter måste du byta jobb eller börja resa. Jobb är lättast att få genom hospitality. Du kan söka på internet eller bara gå runt med ditt CV från ställe till ställe. Det funkade bäst för mig och alla jag känner som gjort samma. Då får managern chans att träffa dig, ta en drink/kaffe med dig och have a chat. Första intrycket är viktigt!
Hoppas svaret fortfarande gav dig något nytta!

- A day full of Muay Thail boxing. I went to the main boxing stadium in Chiang Mai to watch some locals during their training. When their were done it was my turn to sweat. 3 hours of private muay thai training and I loved it!
In the end a muay thai boxer wanted to bring me to the fight during the night. So I went with him and got the whole fighting show for free! Sweet!

traveling to the city of culture and temples x CHIANG MAI, THAILAND.

Tonight we're having a big dinner and then we'll take it from there.

Sending hugs and love to you all, and especially my family and friends.

It's the second biggest mountain in south east Asia. The hardest thing I've done in my life. But I'm happy I've put myself throught something like that and experienced it. Now that's done and I don't need to do it again, for a while... haha. But I still want to try new crazy and extreme things.

- There is no objective reality 'out there'. Things only exist when we observe them, which implies that the whole universe exists in our consciousness.

And do I mess Melbs? YES!
But the life as a traveler isn't too bad.

coffees & streets x MELBOURNE MEMORIES

A human being is part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. We experience ourselves, our thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest. A kind of optical delusion of consciousness. The true value of a human being is determined by the measure and the sense in which they have obtained liberation from the self. We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if humanity is to survive.
- The New Quotable Einstein
by Alice Calaprice.

There's no cars or motorbikes on this Island. Only horses and bikes. So peaceful! 
Also had a few minutes nap in a bungalow at the restaurant after the lunch, haha..
Sittiing and planning my next adventure already.
