I really don’t like writing bad reviews. I picked up this book in the shelf, just to know what all the fuss was about and make my own opinion.
I was, I have to say quiet intrigued by the spiced up erotica of the book… In the beginning. Its a bit repetitive and the main character is very blown up. Continue reading
I’m standing on the bow of this massive Australian Catamaran, that’s taking me from Cairns to Australia‘s Great Barrier Reef. My inside is on fire! I mean WAw! I’m on my way to THE Great Barrier Reef!! As a Scuba Instructor, for sure this was on the top of the bucket- list! The wind is gliding through my hair, as I rock up and down with the waves. As I try to find my balance over these rocking waves, my hands are tightened around the safety rail surrounding the boat. I can see the eyes of the fellow passengers, that just like mine, are filled with excitement and a pinch of fear. While the water is splashing on both sides of the boat. The crew is jumping up and down with the kids. SeaStar Cruises is definitely a company to remember! A crew that’s clearly having fun and spreading the joy! ♥

Music from the land down under… I think you’ve all heard this song before…
After hitch- hiking for over 1000 K’s, I reaaaaally didn’t feel like talking anymore. When I jumped into Garry’s truck, he asked me: ”Do you like music?”
I answered: “I LOVe music!” Continue reading
Scott, Katie, Dakota and Chypsy
The last person to pick me up hitch- hiking to Airlie Beach was Scott. He had three big dogs in the back of his truck… Turned out he’d just been Wild Pig Hunting in the Sugar Cane Fields… I asked Scott, if next time I could join him. Scott was true to his word and took me Wild Pig Hunting between Makay and Proserpine, on Australia’s East Coast. In the Pitch Black Night… The three main hunters were Katie, Dacota and Chipsy, his three brave dogs. :) Continue reading
Airlie Beach is a popular Australian coast town, that’s often used as a Jumping- off point to visit Australia’s Whitsunday’s and the Great Barrier Reef. The town is lovely. Not too big, not too small. Packed with travellers, hopping on the big boats to visit the Great Barrier Reef and shaking their asses at night to the life music… Continue reading
The dreamers need the realists to keep them from soaring too close to the sun… And the realists… Well without the dreamers… They might not ever get off the ground… Modern Family
Four years ago, when I started the “Big Travel” in Rio de Janeiro: I’d read the whole Brazilian Lonely Planet and had already found a friends’ apartment to rent 6 months later, in the North of Bahia, for when we had to find work… Bla Bla Bla. In the end I spend 2 weeks in Brazil, crossed South- and Central America and ended up working in Mexiiiiico!
So yeah, this time… Sama Sama… ”Travel Planning“, actually is just a back- up… Continue reading
In less then 2 weeks time I had to re- orient my life. A job I took didn’t work out and I was given 14 days to leave Gili Air. Gili Air has been my Home away from Home for the past year and a half, a tiny little island that lies between Lombok and Bali, in Indonesia.
Luckily 6 months ago I’d already applied for an Australian Working Holiday Visa, a visa that alows some travellers to work and travel in Australia for 12 months. Click on this link for more info on how to apply for an Australian Working Holiday Visa. This type of visa is also available in Canada and New Zealand. Continue reading

“Australian author & Bali resident (Kuta) Malcolm Scott exposes the brutal reality of gangs, drugs, violence and prostitution in Australia’s #1 holiday destination.”
“An exposé of the underbelly of Bali, Indonesia…”
Honestly, I wasn’t impressed or excited by the book. The book clearly describes the underbelly of Kuta. A town I don’t really fancy. A bit of a nightmare town really… The town is full of negative energy, loud bad music and dirty minded people…
Bali RAW… I expected much more… too bad.
