Saturday morning a week ago. I’m back home for about 10 days and stealing a weekend away with the closest of close friends I possess. On our way to the Green Cauldron high up in the mountains we stop at the last grocery store slash pub in the village, right next to the school for mountain guides. I’m after a particular brand of Bulgarian chocolate waffles called Golden Stanka, after one of Bulgaria’s Olympic champion female wrestlers. I’ve only ever seen them in this place but today I’m out of luck. No Golden Stanka waffles and it looks like they don’t produce them anymore. Such a terrible loss. The wafflelessness will be the one dark cloud over our soon to be bliss in the power free reception free wilderness. #Bulgaria #Troyan #CherniOsam #Countrylife #vscocam #vsco #bycicle #nomadstories #village #picoftheday #throwback #wafflestory

Bangkok airport, February 6th

Bangkok airport, February 6th. Father and son stop in front of one of the many memorials built for the late king of Thailand Bhumibol Adulyadej. The king passed away in October 2016 and the country is in the middle of its one year mourning period. All over the capital and the islands you can see beautiful memorials of all sizes and the face of the king is everywhere. #throwback #thailand #airport #tradition #memorial #vscocam #nomadstories

Island hopping throwback #Thailand

Island hopping throwback. Our guide & his wife hosted us on their boat for a whole day. Picked us up, took us around the little islands around Koh Lanta, fed us home made lunch. He smiled the whole time. She never smiled and was extremely shy. One thing was clear - it was a family business. And they made us feel welcome. #thailand #kohlanta #kohngai #boattrip #vsco #vscocam #vscothailand #nomadstories #throwback #tbt

It’s been a month since Tokyo and I’m already itchy. Can’t wait to be back in Asia in a couple of weeks. I’m sure Singapore won’t disappoint. The shot is by @noeltock, on my last night in Japan. #throwback #citysquare #lights #Asia #Tokyo #Japan #nomadstories
