There’s No Place Like Malta

That’s the title of a video produced by the Maltese national airline Air Malta. In this video, the world renowned Maltese tenor Joseph Calleja describes the elements of Malta that are closest to his heart.

The video ends with the text ‘Shot entirely in February’, I found that particularly clever, and while I’m not a big fan of spending winters in Malta, it does have the best winter weather in all of Europe.

So I invite you to watch this short video of our home base country, Malta.

The Cost of Living Like a Boss in Chiang Mai

After tomorrow we are leaving Chiang Mai and heading to the south of Thailand to explore some islands. We spent three and a half months in Chiang Mai and we are really going to miss this city. It’s a great place to visit. Chiang Mai has a unique kind of buzz to it, oscillating between a busy city life in the center and a more tranquil setting as soon as you distance yourself by a few kilometers. If you are adventurous enough to rent a motorbike and head out exploring, a wonderful countryside bursting with all kinds of flowers and wildlife awaits you.

Me and Jean in Babylon Arabic Restaurant in Chiang Mai

Everybody knows that food in Thailand is very cheap and ubiquitous. It’s very hard to find a place in Thailand which doesn’t have even at least a small stall with some kind of Thai food. Chiang Mai is not an exception. Here in Chiang Mai, only a very lazy person wouldn’t find food for his taste and budget: numerous restaurants, food courts, markets – everything around welcomes you to eat!

Chinatown Bangkok – An Assault on the Senses

Chinatown Bangkok (not my photo)

On our third day in Bangkok we decided to visit the famed Chinatown, the oldest area of Bangkok. A taxi ride from our Sukhumvit area to Chinatown cost 100 Baht. When you are in Bangkok make sure that your taxi is using a working meter before you get into the taxi. We had to stop 3 or 4 taxis this night before we found one willing to do things properly and switch on his meter. All the rest offered us fixed prices of not less than 150 Baht (one even asking for 400 Baht, clearly a tourist ripoff).
