Most Memorable Travel Experience
* Camel safari in the dessert of Syria ,staying with a bedouin family that liked me so much that they offered me to live with them and herd their goat...and possibly marry one of their 8 daughters...

* Interacting with tigers in the tiger temple in Thailand.

* the islands of Koh Phi Phi and Koh Tao in Thailand... amazing beaches , amazing sunsets ,and as relaxing as life can possibly get...would`nt min spenfing some months there..preferably diving alot !

* Meeting the monkeys' in monkey town in Thailand. Amazing !

* Beeing chased by a Tuk-Tuk driver and the people from some tacky strip club he wanted me and my canadian friend to go to. Running into an alley of Bangkok and meeting with all the locals there and photographing them, then we went to the Red light district. Beeing chased by the in-bouncers at the gay clubs there, passing clubs with 50-100 girls on stage with only 3 people watching them!

*taking the crazy water taxi around the Peninsula of Osa on Costa rica - jumping over 8 meter high waves and flying with the boat. Racing agains the wave of a gigantic wave right behind our boat - adrenaline rush , it`s like in the action movies when the explosions happen right after the hero runs out of the house

*climbing the highest mountain in Panama with my girlfriend , 40 kilometer trek , over 2000 meter straight up ! took us 11 hours, did`nt make it back before darkness and had to use my digital camera as a flashlight to see the trail in the dark jungle. We were trainwrecks afterwArds

* Diving on caribbean coast south in Costa Rica, and sspending 30 minutes with 2 gigantic Manatees and a big shark !
I've currently finished my Veterinary Medicine degree in Budapest,Hungary ,wich has been a full time i have'nt gotten to do much travelling for the last years:(
After finishing my degree I had a nice litle 8 weeks of travelling from Bangkok to Singapore, spending most my time relaxing on the islands...amazing....
Me and my girlfriend spent 7 weeks in central America last october - see blog !
Now I have been working last 10 months in a small animal clinic on the pretty Exmouth coastline in Devon, UK. It is a nice place to live , and gives me time to save up money for my 2-year round the world trip in a few years..
Later i would like to work part time in a diving shop and part time as a veterinarian in Australia...get to dive alot !! (i`m an instructor)
