Back in Business: Rioma.nl

So it’s been a while, but I’m back! I’ve been working very hard to get my blog updated to this site, which gives me more possibilities & freedom!

Something that is new there is Travel Map which you can find in the top menu. It shows you the world map, marked with spots that I wrote about. I think it’s pretty cool and it might be useful for you if you’re looking for a particular post.

A short update to let you know that I transferred blogs and there won’t be any posts coming here anymore! Also, don’t forget to follow my new site via bloglovin’ so you don’t miss out on anything! you can do so by clicking here: Follow my blog with Bloglovin

I hope to see you on Rioma.nl!

Happy New Year

Happy new year! I hope that 2014 will be your best year so far and all your wishes and dreams come true!

I kind of started 2014 in a bad way since I got robbed on January 1st. I now don’t have my phone and Laptop (and a lot of other valuable stuff) anymore and I lost all my pictures. This means I can’t really work on new blogposts right now. My goal is to start uploading more blogposts a week on a regular basis, so as soon as I got a new laptop I’ll be back online!🙂

Christmas in the royal palace

Earlier I spoke about maybe visiting the royal palace in my hometown during our second day of Christmas, and that’s what we did!

During the winter times they go all out with decorating the palace exactly the way it used to look during christmas whilst the royals were still living there. Today the pictures we made during our visit! Continue reading

Mahout for a day

For the people around you that don’t know what a mahout is. A mahout is an elephant trainer that basically dedicates his life to the elephants. Whilst being in Thailand that even has a beer brand with elephants, you just can’t leave Thailand without coming close to these animals.

Being around the elephant farm all day was definitely one of the highlights of our stay in Thailand and today I’m sharing my favorite pictures and I tell you all about the experience.

Somewhere in Thailand

While we were driving in Thailand we stopped when we saw these people working in the paddy fields. Our guide told us that whole villages come together and help each other out with the work on the paddy fields. I found this pretty amazing since it’s really hard work out in the burning sun all day. Amazing to see though, that communities help each other in such a way🙂
