How to get to Singapore?

Singapore is a country and city in the continent of Asia. It has a economically stable situation and is home for a lot of big companies situated in the city of Singapore. This brings cheap flights because of the business infrastructure. Singapore has its own airport and from there you get to almost every corner of the city with the metro. The metro works great and the prices are good. Feel free to grab a taxi in to the city and Uber and Grab are often used and accepted.

Where to stay?

The most famous hotel of Singapore is probably the Marina Bay Sands. It is known for its infinity pool with a breathtaking view on the city. We stayed at a hotel close to the center but a more affordable one! click on this Link or watch the video log i filmed there.

What is special in Singapore?

The city offers huge skyscrapers with stunning views. The Marina Bay Sands for ecample is a huge hotel but a big shopping center as well. Futuristic architecture, especially the "gardens by the bay" will make your jaw drop. Besides those modern buildings Singapore has a clash of cultures and different religions. Experience how peaceful they life side by side in little India or Chinatown.

How to get to Canggu?

Canggu is situated in the southern part of Bali, close to the better known city "Seminyak". Bali has its own airport in Denpansar which is 40 min car drive away from Canggu. Book a hotel close to the beach or park your scooter at the beach parking. Just google for “Canggu” you won't miss it.

This little Bed & Breakfast is an absolute dream and really a realxing oasis. Super kind staff we felt like were family. I also filmed a seperate vlog about this amazing place

What is special there?

The most amazing things are the Canggu Restaurants! A lot of healthy and tasty dishes served in restaurants and cafes with fancy interiors. The nightlife is great and if you still able do wake up for the early swell after partying you'll be surfing on some of Bali's most amazing waves.

Bingin Beach

surfing bingin beach

Before arriving at our Hotel in the region of Uluwatu we never heard of Bingin Beach before. Apparently the Bingin Beach turned out to be the nearest beach of our hotel. So we jumped into the swimming outfit on the first morning to explore this Beach.

How to get to the Bingin Beach?

Bingin Beach is situated in the southern part of Bali, the region of Uluwatu. Bali has its own airport in Denpansar which is 35 min car drive away from Bingin Beach. Book a hotel close to the beach or park your scooter at the beach parking. Just google for “bingin beach parking”. From the parking should be street signs leading to the beach. The way leads through unconventional narrow streets through the buildings in front of the beach. sometimes the way seems to be wrong but trust the signs your on the right track.

bingin beach

Where to stay?

We stayed at a hotel close to the Bingin Beach which we can’t recommend because of some issues we had whilest our stay so i’d recommend you a place right at the beach.

Check it out here

How much does it cost?

The access to the Beach is free. Perhaps you have to pay for the parking which mostly costs around 10/20 Indonesian Rupiah. The Hotels are in different price ranges from cheap to super expansive.

What is special there?

The time i was there, Bingin Beach was nearly empty. Behind the beach is a hill covered with hotels and restaurants. Sitting in one of those Cafes, sipping a smoothie and watching the surfers conquer the waves is an amazing experience. It is probably not the most preffered beach for swimmers as there is a stoney ground and the waves are so good for surfing because of the reef under the water.

Welcome drink, smiling receptionist, Check in paperwork, dropped our luggage to the lobby boy and then we arrived in our hotel room. Spacious, bold and beautiful. The view from the balcony on the pool area and the sea. nothing more to wish for.

The tour to the Iguazu Falls 

There are different ways to explore this amazing place. Entering the park there are busses waiting for you which pick you up and brings you to a platform where you have an awesome view on the Iguazu Falls. This platform is right in front of the Belmond Hotel das Cataratas. From there you can walk straight down some pathways and stairs to the Foz do Iguaçu area. From this area a huge lift brings you up to the Restaurant's: a fast food restaurant and a buffet style restaurant. Or before taking the lift make sure to walk out the footbridge which brings you to the perfect spot right where the biggest Iguazu falls crash into each other. This spot is called Devil’s Throat.

How to get to the Iguazu Falls?

We went on a travel Bus from Londrina. It was pretty comfortable to sleep in the Bus for 7 hours and then we arrived. But you can easily go on a plane from São Paulo directly to the city of Foz do Iguaçu. There is a little Airport. Our stay was in the city of Foz do Iguaçu too, you don’t need to stay in park itself. From the City you can easily get to the park and the Iguazu Falls with public transportation.

Europe Roadtrip

This is Pascalcito standing in front of the broken car whilst our Europe Roadtrip.

The Breakdown

My buddy Pascalcito and me had a great Idea. Our plan was to go on a Europe Roadtrip from Zürich to Barcelona. Visit a handful of cities on the way and then along the coast through Cannes, Nice, and Monaco.

Excited for this adventure we hit the road early in the morning. After driving a couple of hundred meters the engine started to make strange noises. Suddenly Pascalcito couldn’t speed up the car anymore, so we took the next exit. On the first traffic light we stopped white smoke appeared in front of us, puffing right out of the bonnet! Was this the end of our Europe Roadtrip?

We couldn't wish for a better start. We called the breakdown service. After a short investigation we had the bad news: the engine is bust.

Called a taxi and headed to the airport in Geneva. As you might know taxi prices in Switzerland are tremendous. We payed 230 US dollars to get from our break down location to the airport, which already is probably more expensive than flying directly to Barcelona.

Anyways, the only car left was a spacious family-van. We loaded the van with our luggage and went back on the road with no plans at all.

Annecy

After an hour drive we stopped in a city called Annecy. This lovely little town is situated close to Geneva right by the lake “Lac d’Annecy” named after the city. after a turbulent start we slowed down and strolled through the beautiful old town. Cobblestone streets leading along old facades with wooden balconies stocked with flowers.

Girona

We made it over the spanish borders and dove right into a catalonian city called Girona. There is a river flowing through the city, crossed by several bridges and accompanied by colorful houses stacked on each other right besides the river. We tried to get up the city murals where you have a breathtaking view on the roofs of Girona.

WE MADE IT

A week of driving, exploring and having amazing meals, we made it to Barcelona. We were super excited to explore the city, parked the rental car and checked in to the hotel. more to come…

I hope you enjoyed this adventure with us on the road to Barcelona. The moral of the story is that even if we plan things properly, it can go wrong, nevertheless it's important to keep your cool. There is always a way and sometimes spontaneity can surprise you with great things in life.

Here is the video of our time spend in Barcelona:
