Stunning view from Phu Kradeung
Hiking and Thailand is not an ideal match for most foreigners. Most of them prefer to visit seaside resorts or experience cultural and historical highlights such as Northern Thailand or the ancient cities of Ayutthaya or Sukhothai. They have no idea what they eventually miss when they are into hiking. Read more about our adventure during the 3 day / 2 night adventure which took us to Phu Kradeung National Park in the northeastern province of Loei, Thailand.

Shortly before Christmas 2018 my wife and me decided to visit the subtropical island of Jeju, located on the southern tip of the Korean peninsular. I have already been several times on Jejudo but never made it to the top of Hallasan (한라산 / 漢拏山). I really wanted to visit the highest elevation of South Korea and before leaving we already prepared and packed our hiking gear which was suitable for winter weather. Read here more about our journey to the Baengnokdam peak of Hallasan.
