Riding up and down the Andes in Peru

Published by under Peru

There is a reason why I prefer trains oppose to buses. And I was soon to find out once again the reason for my preference. But unfortunately there are no trains (not even tracks) from Nazca to Cuzco and while it might sound foolish to consider going all the way back to Lima just to take a flight, I would always recommend once you flying direct Lima-Cuzco. Take a plane. The bus ride is long and painful, at least it was for me…

Ta Prohm is a Buddhist monastery dedicated to the “ancestor Brahma” and dates back to the middle of the XII. century and beginning of the XIII. century. If you´re looking for tranquillity (compared to most busy Wat´s in Angkor) and the amazing harmony between nature and Khmer design, I reckon this could be paradise for you…

The Reunification Express, from Saigon to Hanoi

Published by under Vietnam

What a fantastic train ride this is if you make a break or two and see the scenery over the Hai Van Pass. Of course I was pushing it again, no break but the full 3 days (33 hours) yet I would do it again with a stop and with one or two bottles wines, only.
