• Perhentian Islands

    Chilling on the Perhentian Islands

    The Perhentian Islands lie next to the northeastern coast of Peninsular Malaysia. They are so far to the north, that they could easily belong to Thailand. There were two very convincing reasons why we chose these islands instead of the famous Langkawi Islands: they are not touristy at all and you have a chance to see and swim with turtles. A Perhentian szigetek Malajzia észak-keleti csücskénél fekszenek. Annyira északon, hogy az már majdnem Thaiföld. Annak pedig, hogy a híres Langkawi szigetek helyett inkább ezt választottuk, két oka van: az egyik, hogy ez a hely nem turistás, a másik pedig, hogy itt testközelből lehet teknősöket látni. És ennyi elég is volt.

    5 Activities in Taman Negara

    If I would have to name my absolute favourite place out of all my travels up until now, I would say Taman Negara straight away. In retrospect, I think I could spend months or even years there. Nonetheless, Will and I had only two days to explore the area. Based on our experiences, let’s see what people can choose to do here by themselves, without a tour guide, almost for free. Ha eddigi utazásaim közül meg kellene neveznem az abszolút kedvenc helyemet, akkor gondolkodás nélkül a Taman Negarát választanám. Utólag belegondolva, hónapokat vagy akár éveket is el tudnék itt tölteni, ehhez képest pedig csak két nap állt rendelkezésünkre, hogy bejárjuk a környéket.…

  • How to Visit Taman Negara by Yourself

    The 130 million years old Taman Negara (which means “national park” in Malay) is one of the world’s oldest rainforests. This 4343 square kilometers big national park is home for a wide range of animals, such as deer, wild boars, tapirs, monkeys, elephants, hornbills, tigers and leopards, and it has been developed into a famous ecotourism destination. When Will and I first read about it, we knew straight away that we will come and visit. The only question was, how to get there? A 130 millió éves Taman Negara (ez malájul nemzeti parkot jelent) a Föld egyik legöregebb esőerdeje. Számtalan különböző állatfaj, köztük szarvas, vaddisznó, tapír, majom, elefánt, orrszarvú madár,…

    25 Things to Do in Kuala Lumpur

    Kuala Lumpur is the capital of Malaysia, and despite the fact that it’s not very big, it certainly offers an unlimited amount of things to explore. I’ve put together a list of 25 items, some of which are the well-known, touristy sights, others are a bit off the beaten path and you can easily miss them if you don’t pay attention, and finally a few which we haven’t had a chance to check out because of several different reasons. I’ve also included a place that I don’t actually recommend to people, even though it’s quite well-known. Let’s see what are these! Kuala Lumpur Malajzia fővárosa, és annak ellenére hogy nem túlságosan nagy,…

  • Winter City Break in Copenhagen – Day 3

    The following day started off a little bit hazy. And not just because of our late-night drinks, but also because of the much more wintry weather… A másnap nagyon ködösen indult. És nem csak az előző esti iszogatás miatt, hanem mert közben az időjárás is téliesebbre fordult…

  • Ruben og Bobby Copenhagen

    Copenhagen Off the Beaten Track: Ruben og Bobby Arcade Barbershop

    The whole thing happened back in February, when Will and I wanted to go away for a long weekend somewhere random. Flying to Copenhagen from London is always a very cheap option, so after thinking about it for at least half an hour, we just got the plane tickets… cause y’know… we’re cool, and go with the flow. 🙂 Anyway, whenever we travel somewhere, we quickly scroll through and take a mental note of the official must-sees of a city, after which we dive into this whole big, unexplored world of off-the-beaten-path sights and activities. This is how Will accidentally discovered Ruben og Bobby, a retro game barbershop located in Nørrebro,…

  • Clapham South Deep-level Shelter

    Going Underground: Clapham South Deep-level Shelter

    As part of the Hidden London tours organised by the London Transport Museum curious visitors have the chance to go down and walk around the Clapham South deep-level shelter, which is one of the eight Second World War civilian deep shelters built in London. Walking around the different rooms, halls and tunnels 30 metres deep under ground while we could regularly hear the Northern line trains passing above us was quite and experience, but I think the stories we heard during the one hour tour were even more interesting. A Londoni Közlekedési Múzeum által szervezett Rejtett London túrák egyike során a kíváncsi népeknek lehetősége adódik a Clapham Southnál található világháborús…

  • Going Underground: Jubilee Line at Charing Cross Station

    It is a well-known fact, that London has a serious tube and tunnel system, and many parts of it are disused and abandoned. Over time more and more tube lines were constructed, extended, transformed, moved, and sometimes closed. Usually people are not allowed to visit these places, but sometimes the London Transport Museum opens them for a short period of time, so the most curious Londoners have a chance to get an insight. Köztudott tény, hogy London komoly metró- és alagúthálózattal rendelkezik, és ennek meglepően sok része teljesen kihasználatlanul, zárt ajtók mögött szomorkodik. Az idők folyamán a metróhálózatok egyre csak gyarapodtak, meghosszabbodtak, építkezések miatt átalakultak, és néha teljesen bezártak. Többnyire egyáltalán nem…
