Having a good time in the Tessin and Piemonte

Spring came to europe and so it was time for our anual easter trip. This year Babsi, Anschi and I drove to the Tessin and the Piemonte. Besides the cappucino, the wine and the beautiful women we enjoyed some gorgeous paddling on the Verzasca, the Moesa and the Strona and 3 superb biketours. The biketours where really great besides a 1 hour portage on one trip (which had an amazing decent)….

Well, enough blabla – if you need more infos ‚coz you go to the area then send me an email – otherwise enjoy the photos.

We are 3 (MUnicyclists) now ….

Besides kayaking I really love MUnicycling – and Anschi was infected with the MUni-virus around half a year ago. So we are now 3 addicted municyclists in Salzburg: Anschi, Moose and myself …

Last weekend Anschi and I enjoyed the triallines at a construction site in Puch and Elena shot some great photos – thx again, Elena :)



Another weekend – another river…
Anschi, Michi and I enjoyed the beautiful Mörtlbach near Salzburg. Of course we made some photos for your viewing pleasure ;) and if you want to paddle it > has a nice description of the river.

SEAsia Part 3:Thailand – a paradies for shop-O-holics & food-O-holics

From Cambodia it took as one day on the road to arrive in the southeastern corner of Thailand in the nice town of Trat. A relaxing day there was followed by Koh Chang, Thailands 2nd biggest island. After a few days at the Whitesand Beach (and a cooking course) we took a boat to a smaller island – Koh Kham, the Kitsch-island itself ….

Koh Kham was followed by another stay at Koh Chang and then we took the bus to Bangkok. A paradies for shoppers at places like the weekend market, the MBK-shopping center and many others. Our luggage went up from 3 backpacks (ca. 25kg) to 6 backpacks with 50kg …. Besides the shopping we enjoyed the spectacular Royal Palace and the Wats (=temples) and of course … the thai food!!!

Well, that’s it from our trip – now have a look at the Thailand photos


SEAsia Part 2:Cambodia – the big divide

After some perfect days we left Vietnam on the Mekong and arrived in Cambodia. Our fist stop was Phnom Phen, where we were shocked by the big gap between the few ultra rich and the poor people of Cambodia plus the corruption going on. It also felt weird that every house, restaurant, .. is behind big walls, barbwire and with security persons around.

Well, after seeing the sights of Phnom Phen we moved on to Sihanoukville (a ’nothing special‘ beach village) and then to Siam Reap. From this nice little town we explored the temples of Ankor on bicycles until we were completly templed out and we moved on to Thailand.

Ok, enough writing – check out some of the photos

SEAsia Part 1: Vietnam – living the Hobbit-way

5513Our trip started in Saigon and after a few hours we adopted to the vietnamese behavior of ’snacking through the day‘ – just like the hobbits in middleearth. Our record were 8 food/cafe stops in one day … Besides the food (which is amazing) we enjoy the open-hearted and superfriendly vietnamese people and the beautiful landscape.
