Becoming a dive instructor is the dream of many people. This is why I did it, and the choices I made to get certified and teaching.
About Koen Blanquart
I visit Santiago de Chile on my way back from Antarctica. I had 3 days to visit old friends from New York and to catch a glimpse of a city I only knew from the newspapers and books.
Discovering Vietnam, that’s discovering its food as well as the urban jungle Ho Chi Ming City actually is. A food tour felt like the right activity to combine both!
One of the main attractions in Ubud (Bali) is the Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary. It is a small area in the center of the city. Some 600 Balinese Longtail Monkeys live here. (Macaque in English).
After my first days of travel in Ho Chi Ming City and Hanoi (Vietnam), and awaiting more adventures, here are some of the things that were not as I expected them before coming here. Breakfasts in construction sites, motor scooters with an app, and a very cosmopolitan aspect.
More train! Saigon to Hanoi this time!
After spending the new years eve in Kuala Lumpur, I decided to head for Singapore. By train.
A trip to Nicaragua, step 1: border crossing from Costa Rica:
Peking, Beijing, at last. My first days in the city. Love on the first sight. Who would have thought that?
Arrival in Beijing, China! After thousands of kilometers on the train, crossing many borders since London, I made it to the first big stop on my Trans Europe and Asia journey.
