Do you want to train with Muay Thai legends? The beauty of Thailand is the hospitality and the top sport culture. Muay Thai is sport #1 that makes Thailand a perfect place to train for kickboxing, boxing and MMA.
This week I got so much personal messages on Facebook and Instagram about the journey I’m in. Getting as fit as possible and making my dreams come through by being freelancer working remote. But most comments were about my commitment to my goals and questions how I motivate myself on daily basis. The best feeling I get is to make progress towards my bigger goal. Progress = Happiness. That feeling of being on top of the world and nobody can stop you. How I try to get myself in that state every day?
Happy to share my story with you <3
Last three weeks I was training Muay Thai at Santai Muay Thai Gym in Chiang Mai. Training in an authentic Gym is an amazing experience but also exhausting. After the 3 weeks I treated myself to two nice luxury hostels with a private room. First I slept two nights at Oxotel hostel close to the famous Chiang Mai Saturday Night Market and moved after to Trace Hotelistro because they serve amazing Acai Bowl and Cocktails in a unique location.
Motorbike trip Vietnam in mind? For four weeks my friend Rens from (Tallguytravelling) has been riding a motorbike through Vietnam. Crossing the country from Ho Chi Minh to Hanoi and the loop in the stunning Ha Giang region. His trip was 3748km of fun, adventure, a sore ass and incredible scenery! If you are ever planning to visit Vietnam make sure to travel (at least some parts) by motorbike.
Life is awesome right? If you want to get the most out of life you take care of yourself.
For a lot of us, traveling is getting out of our comfort zone and seeking for adventure. Discovering new cultures, food and stunning places is what we strive for. Parents, friends and family always ask if its safe to travel that certain country we go and say when you board the plane, take care of yourself. But do you really do?
Some of the dangerous parts of traveling can only be seen years after. Read below and if you have simple tips to help others write it in the comments.
Today exactly 5 years ago I started my solo travel adventures, it all started with the #TourduPisa. Till this date I still have the picture of that trip as the background of my phone. It motivates me every day to get the most out of it.
On a Saturday night I was with some friends having a drink and chatting. Were discussed our Holidays, and I didn’t had booked mine yet. Three couples would meet up close to Pisa (Italy) for a week at the beach. With my crazy head I said I will cycle there… their reaction.. Sure..
I love cycling but on that moment I only had an Amsterdam City bike what looks like the one below. This simple bicycle brought me to the train station, pub and supermarket. That was also the only cycling training what I’d done. The next morning I decided to buy a Cortina touring bicycle on Fietsenwinkel.nl, not a crazy expensive one but after some research I trusted it was a decent bike.
