A world tour is also in the small format
Small but fine: Melanie from the beautiful travel blog good morning world writes for us about her first small trip around the world, led in the South Pacificto Asia and Australia . Join us and get inspired!
Guest article by Melanie Schillinger - goodmorningworld
A world tour is also in the small format
Australia, it should be more precisely only Sydney... And to perhaps a few idyllic Islands in the South Pacific! With many Palm trees and the beautiful turquoise waters of the postcards... They were so my approximate desires. As it was but an absolute nonsense would be technical routes to book a roundtrip, I decided spontaneously for a round-the-world ticket. And so a small world tour was from my planned trip - almost unintentionally -. Proudly, I held my ticket in the hands a few days later and was looking forward to both head over! I on the world tour - which I previously also didn't...
Tahiti - island paradise in the South Pacific
My journey led me first to the island Fakarava - a so-called atoll. The best I can describe it you as a ring of "Mainland" in the middle of the ocean. Wherever you can find soft sand beaches - sometimes even right pink and pink. And palm trees as far as the eye can see. In the middle of the "ring", you can swim in the shallow and crystal clear turquoise waters of the lagoon, snorkel or experience the dives of your life - for example with some 500 sharks! With a little luck you can observe even dolphins to jump and play in the lagoon...
The second island was Moorea. A dream come true from beautiful beaches, high mountains and dense and incredibly green luminous tropical vegetation. Here you can snorkel with curious reef sharks, pet cuddly stingrays, or swim with giant humpback whales. And that is only a small part of the very special experiences, the up here for all burn time in your memory. On which you will remember back a lifetime with a smile on his face. Incidentally, the nicest thing I so far have heard in my life, that was the song of the humpback whales in the waters off Moorea. Hardly your head under the water, everything around you is around filled with her singing...
You must simply have seen this insane city with our own eyes! The Opera House in the soft light of the setting sun. The views of the gigantic port during a Bridgewalks on the harbour bridge or the small, perky possums you can feed and stroke in the many green parks in the city with bananas.
Just wonderful, I found even the excursion in the eucalyptus forests of the blue mountains. With a little luck you can see perhaps a koala! Also, this place is very hard to describe with words. You have to just see him - and in this case even smell like...
Greetings from Hong Kong - China
As a stop with an overnight stay in Hong Kong was necessarily required on the return flight, I have simply extends the order a few more nights. This town is fantastic! The view from the peak - a great vantage point - is simply priceless! Especially at night, if you have a clear view of the lights of this mega city...
I paid a little visit also the big Buddha on Lantau Iceland. You can organise it very well even in the context of a day trip with public transport on the ground!
So, so, I have experienced my first trip around the world. Small but fine...
I have to say that I'm really whet your appetite! And one thing I know now: there will be another one. Soon. Very soon. And that will take much, much longer...
Did you ever do a world tour? Which countries and places have you visited? BB´s write me like in the comments. I'm curious...
Well ... So a world trip is not just, but it is also called "world trip in small format" - where is the longer world trip?
She writes that it was a small world trip. I find the selected goals in any case very exciting!
Melanie Schillinger commented on :
Hello Tom and Paul! Yes, that's why I have called it world travel in miniature. More is simply not there if you only 30 days holiday in the framework of a permanent... :/ Thank you Paul, I found these goals also exciting and they have not disappointed me... I still don't exactly know where goes the second world tour that begins in July and will have an open end. Everything else is still wonderfully open! :)
As you plan your trip around the world
Dream trip around the world - are you still dreaming or travels you already?

Life - you want to be on the road how long?The length of your trip around the world depends on how big is your travel budget, whether you book a fixed ticket (E.g. a round-the-world ticket) beforehand and what looks like your professional situation. Always take trips around the world on average between 6 and 18 months.
Travel partner - who's coming?If you're alone, as well as Jan, for example, are you 100% flexible and need to contact anyone you. If you travel in pairs, each of you has a few favourite destinations, necessarily want to be taken into account.

Otto commented on :
Insurance companies are still a good theme to do so. You should at least an international health insurance plan complete, eg. ETI or the ADAC. I've had good experiences with these two. Greetings from the stormy North!

Do you know these useful travel apps?
I present today a few travel apps, which - in my opinion - are practical companions for backpacking .
Trail Wallet - here you have your travel budget in view. The app tells you your absolute and average spending per day and shows how much money you have left over. This app makes sense if you have been on the road for several months or as a digital nomad the world has become your home. The app is free.
Converter - you can quickly and easily convert currencies, time zones and length measurements. A percentage calculator is also included. The app is free.
Flashlight - this app turns your smartphone into a flashlight. This is especially handy when your loo is out on the road. The app is free.
City Maps 2Go Pro (2,69 €) - you can not run away with the offline maps, you can see if your taxi driver has chosen the shortest route and how long you will be sitting on the bus. On the maps you will find restaurants, places of interest and accommodations that you can book through booking.com. Costs: 2,69 €
Peaks (2,69 €) - this app is useful for hiking in the mountains because it tells you the names of mountains, their altitude and the distance to you. You can use this app offline and in every world. Costs: 2,69 €
You can also use permondo as an app - you can easily upload your blog posts as an e-mail. How you do it, you can see here in the FAQ blog .

What apps do you recommend? Just leave me a comment!
andy kurth commented on :
I can recommend citymapper totally. Opening and departure times - very good.
A translation app I find still helpful, eg leo (free). Who is traveling longer could also learn the language, eg with duolingo (free)
@andy, thanks for the tip, which is always useful with citystrips! @tom, that's true! Translators are of course also super helpful.
Klaus & Kathrin commented on :
For New Zealand the app Campermate was absolutely fantastic. So accurate and accurate tips on campsites, petrol stations, shopping etc. was extremely helpful. Better than any travel guide.
@Klaus & Kathrin, many thanks for the reference! Do you want to make a permondo tip? Then we put this into our travel planning category + Australia online. LG, Michael
Still no advent calendar?
Forget to make an advent calendar and still not bought?
For you and your partner to start a personal blog with 24 (or more) photos and each day write something nice to do so. So, you can build very short-term surprises (movie tickets/dinner /...).
Christmas Eve, then, you have a beautiful reminder of the festive season.
The whole thing is of course also in the family, the colleagues or other groups possible!
Enjoy the amazing!
Special: Backpacking / / so you can find the right backpack
"Only where you are walking, you've been really." - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
From the hippie to the backpacker
The first "backpacker" made up years on the Hippie trail from Europe on the way to Southeast Asia, in the 1960s and 1970s. Backpacking helped many regions on the tourist map - who it as a destination in the Lonely Planet creates, is also interesting for the mass market. Already in 1973, Lonely Planet published a guide book with the title "South East Asia on a shoestring".
The travel culture of Hippis later became the inspiration of our today's generation of backpackers. Backpacking is for us today the maximum mobility, self determination and flexibility. Yes, you have 2 hands free with a backpack on his back and can climb steep and narrow paths on foot - this is priceless!
The backpack - the most important feature for backpacking
The choice of the right backpack is most important for backpacking trips. Watch out for the following criteria at the time of purchase:
Size of the backpack. How long are you on the road? You're a woman, you need evt. a special backpack that takes into account the length of (soon) your upper body. Typical backpacks for back Packers have between 50-70 l capacity.
Carrying system. Your back will thank you forever if the heavy load possible closely and close will be worn on the body. As you find the right backpack, shows a good permitted. Or the side of fascination backpacking.com
Facilities. Probably you had to clean up your child's room earlier. If you're traveling as a backpacker you'd be happy indeed about extra compartments, inside and side pockets and the separate charging system your backpack.
Material. The fabric of the backpack should be stable, robust and preferably waterproof. But of course it also depends, where you travel.
Quality. When you spend 200-300 euros on a good brand, will be the processing of seams, zippers, clips, straps and material of high quality. A budget of €150 is sufficient for most trips. It depends on whether you're as global nomad in the world or come back after a few weeks. And of course where your going.

Working and studying abroad / / part 2: emigrated to Morocco
The last short interview with a German immigrant takes this time to Morocco. David, called his new home "Didier", for over 10 years on the beautiful Atlantic coast in the artist town of Essaouiralives there.
Short interview with Didier / / Morocco
-What makes a life in Morocco?
"The most important thing in life is the food as you know. A plant needs water and good soil to thrive, and here's how we know that the people also. Morocco is not comparable to Europe. Here is the time has stood still. You should consider again, whether one actually health food in Morocco prefers frozen food from the supermarket. In Morocco to get all food freshly on the markets throughout the year. Food does not exist on wheels, which is quite handy for pensioners in Germany here but. Except in the cities of course the well-known pizza service. Here in Morocco, it puts much emphasis on health food and takes the time in the kitchen. One learns to be quickly satisfied with the few of what you have. As the locals also. In the big cities, there are large supermarkets. However, imported goods from Europe is very expensive. Otherwise, the range is however completely. There is everything the heart desires."
-What are your favorite places in Morocco and why?
"I myself live in Essaouira. The city is one of the UNESCO World Heritage site. Often I am Moroccan friends in Taghazout in Agadir. There, I also once ran a restaurant. Taghazout, about 15 km north of Agadir, is the stronghold for surfers. The surf begins mid-October and ends in February. The pottery town of Safi is about 100 km north of Essaouira and is a real dream city. If I'm in the Agadir region it attracts me Mirleft and Sidi Ifni. The huge washed off rocks in the sea is gorgeous and changes colors depending on the sunlight. A natural event. There are there accommodations and restaurants to the stay. Otherwise it pulls me in the rural areas. So I find always new acquaintances. I'm going to tourist cities like Marrakech and Agadir prefer."
-Many emigrant dreams burst, what have you done right?
"In the first few months I had some problems, as I myself knew not from beginning almost 10 years ago. I had to abandon my restaurant, on the basis of incorrect advice to a German representative in Agadir. I was taken on a false trail by middlemen. I have closed my restaurant.
The good contact to the locals was the right thing, what I always did, and so I could build a new modest existence with their help. I live with the locals here and they helped out of necessity. Since I live in Morocco I will be contacted by many people and I give to the best of my own advice all, so that you do not stumble - as I once.
Through volunteer work in a children welfare association, I am with all authorities and courts in close contact and know the legal situation in the country. My professional activity here is now in the construction industry. I oversee on request construction projects from planning to completion. In all the authority, unless the residence permit or other matters I stand to the side and meticulously check contracts to avoid pitfalls."
-What hurdles must cope with emigrants, who want to live in Morocco?
"First emigrants should forget the euro, if they want to live here forever. Here only the Dihram counts.
In my blog I will give tips on how immigrants should comply, to suffer any defeat - so how I have suffered one.
As a stranger, you need have no inhibitions in Morocco. The people are open, helpful and grateful for a small consideration. Sure, there are many immigrants from many European countries here in Morocco. You should be aware that the land belongs to the locals. Like to share, but should behave also respectful to them."
-How easy it is in Morocco to find work and in which sectors do you think immigrants have made it lighter and heavier in which?
"Here in Morocco everyone is a free man. A hobby can become a success. Who comes with ideas such as ice cream or solarium after Morocco here is out of place. The Moroccans can not afford such unnecessary products and services. In gastronomy, it looks quite good. The tourists love specialties of the country and very like to go in the local small Moroccan restaurants. "You can eat steak in the country of origin", their answer to international restaurants. The prices here are not comparable to those in Europe. Also menu drop no big gains as some hoped. In any case, everyone should plan very well his emigration after Morocco. Have always a cash reserve of at least 2 years. A visit to family or friends in the old country requires long saving. Because the Dihram is not the euro and life here is compared to Germany about 7 x more favourable, but it deserves here also correspondingly less.
As immigrants who want to settle down in Morocco, only the path towards independence is open. Jobs are reserved for locals.
With my blog I try to people who want to come to Morocco to help to avoid pitfalls. And I can say: the most important is the experience of the language. French is spoken here. What is a good doctor if I can't explain where the little aches and pains come from. Students who want to come to Morocco, I recommend thatGoethe Institutein the capital city Rabat.Company formation is a look at the pageChamber of Commercevery useful in Casablanca.The end I would like to mention, that I'm called the "Didier" in my blog and here in Morocco. The "one can not speak out second"d"in my name and I the Didier in the country have become so my dreams. "
Everyone can contact gladly me. You will find a contact form on my blog. I welcome anyone here in Morocco."
Dear Didier, I wish you all the best for the future and thank you for the short interview!

Our 7 favorite destinations in the autumn
Where in the cold season? The permondo team has 7 tips for you, where you can still spend free holidays and where it is still nice in the cold season. Whether Stockholm or Poland - here are our tips for autumn:
1. Fuerteventura and Tenerife - tip by Andy
"Both islands are beautiful. In the autumn you can fill up here before the cold winter again really nice sun . Long beaches, nice bars and tidy waves - what does a surfer want more? Both islands are recommended for families, surfers, couples and sunbathers. "
2. La Gomera - tip from Isabelle
"My favorite destination in the autumn is La Gomera! The Canary Island is full of contrasts and energy. The light there is incredible and the nature is still very wild. I love the peace . The people there are somehow relaxed and decelerated . At La Gomera, I can regenerate and gather strength. "
3. Poland - Tip by Claus
"If you do not want to travel so far, you will find impressive scenery in our neighboring country, pretty towns like Gdansk and Pila and many friendly people. We were in September by bike from Berlin to Gdansk and are positively surprised by Poland. A beautiful spot on earth. "
4. Stockholm - Tip from Laura
"Why always in the sun, if you can make so beautiful city stripes in the autumn? My tip: Stockholm! The days are still long enough in autumn to explore the city and the weather is perfect , in between the small fika breaks (fika, German: drink coffee) in the cozy Swedish cafes . And if it should rain, Stockholm has great museums (my tip: Vasa Museum and Fotografiska). "
Want more Scandinavia? Laura's tips for eg Oslo can be found on her fashion blog here. You can find a hotel-tip for Uppsala (Sweden) here .
5. California - Tip from Michael
"Last year I was in California. Cultural highlights are of course Los Angeles, San Diego and San Francisco. My tip: skydiving at Lake Elsinore . An absolutely great experience! "
6. China - tip from Claus
"The Chinese Wall is one of the top destinations in Asia. They are supposed to be seen from the moon. It is safe: it is the largest building in the world. If you're not traveling through China during the national holidays (October 1-7), where pretty much all Chinese go through their own country, autumn is a great time of the year . The hills around the wall then glow in autumn yellow, red, brown, and green. "
Claus' Reisetagebücher can be found here on permondo. He took the bike from Hannover to Beijing in 2013. Here we go to the last and 6th stage "China und Rückreise"
7. Southeast Asia - Tip from Sarah
"In Burma, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam and Thailand, the autumn season starts so slowly. It is usually "full" from December to January. My tip is therefore these countries in the autumn to travel: the nature is lush and green from the rainy season (summer months) and the tourists are not so numerous there (ok, in Angkor is every day main season). Locals are still "recovered" from the rainy season and who is on river cruises should now travel in the fall. "
Fuerteventura! Can Andy join only!
City trip to hamburg.

Private blogs - travel experiences are shared only in a small circle
Is there another write block?
Modern travel blogs also offer the opportunity to go on a trip with a select group. Family and friends are invited and they participate in a travel book, which is currently being held.
Permondo.com has now interviewed its private bloggers. Here are the results:
Private bloggers come from all age groups (41% are, for example, 21 - 35 years old), and the travel companions (members of staff) are represented all the years. However, more participants (ø 13) are invited than in public blogs (ø 8).
The journeys are always longer than 2 weeks, 22% even longer than 3 months and go mainly to Asia (44%), Central and South America (33%) and Australia (22%). Private bloggers report roundtrips (77%), their backpackers (33%) or are in distant countries (26%) for school / work reasons. Work & Travel Adventure and sports travel are almost exclusively shared on open blogs.
The travel guide books are kept online in a timely manner in order not to forget anything (93%) and to quickly inform friends and family how they are doing (81%). Why but privately? By far, most authors (89%) do not want to publish the images of their travels. 26% think their holiday experiences go to others, and 15% fear their followers do not write public comments, so they do not get a direct response from home. Only 7% believe they can not write publicly free of the liver.
This is exciting, is not it?
We wish all authors a lot of fun with the private or public diary write.

With her scooter, she explores the island with her fellow students, enjoys beach and unitage. If you want to experience Vanessa's foreign adventure, you can find her great blog here on permondo.
Break 2014 - Jochen was from May to September in Australia for a Work & Travel experience. There was no toast in the mornings, but in the evening there was an outdoor swimming pool in Perth, sometimes he visited boring islands and then again spectacular natural wonders. From the hostel life and work on an orange plantage, Jochen reports honestly, witty and quite personally from his Aussiesaufteuer Australia. In the luggage: Lonley Planet - the best tips are from Jochen himself.
Eight months in Asia - Luise studies 1 semester in Singapore. From here Luise conquered the countries around all around: Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam - one might think that Luise has a casual life. The university is not without it: quizzes, tests and examinations. In order for Luise to travel as much as possible, she has to go to the right place beforehand: with success - she is currently in Vietnam and visited the Halong Bay and Sapa next to Hanoi. We are looking forward to it.
Australia and more ... 2014 - Reisetagebuch by Andreas, who studied 1 semester in Melbourne. On Tour, Andreas visited the F1 and shot a picture of Hamilton, a relaxed and easy-to-navigate tour of the University's wine club, traveling through Tasmania for a week. After his semester, he traveled with his girlfriend Laura through Australia, New Zealand, Bali and Dubai.
Go Hard or Go Home - Two girls flew to Australia in September for their personal Work & Travel adventure. Immediately after her arrival there was already a sad news: Joey - the cockroach - has unfortunately left her and has died. This event does not prevent the two from making the rental car Australia unsafe. Who wants to experience "live", what Elena and her girlfriend experience, here finds her travel book.
Bangkok on my mind - Christopher is in Bangkok for 1 semester and is reporting on his home in Bangkok, Ikeabesuchen, a (short term) life without Internet and the university day. Sportclub, pool, sightseeing and plenty of excursions await him.
Hong Kong - Rice (s), Rice (s) - Conny spent exciting months from August 2013 to February 2014 in Hong Kong during her Master's degree. She left us a funny, informative and absolutely readable travel book full of impressions and valuable tips.Have you ever lived, worked or studied abroad? We are looking forward to comments from you ...
Have spent an auslandsemester in norway, the internship I then made in london. Is not australia - but was nevertheless ne good time.
Have lived in barcelona for a while. Almost 1 year. Here in berlin live so many spanish at the time, but you can also simply move to berlin;)
I have lived as a medical doctor in Cameroon 20 years ago. Since then I have not been back. I think I have a different picture of kamerun than what I would expect now. The time was indescribable. I can recommend to anyone for a time to go abroad - and if it is only a few months. The blogs are great. I wish all bloggers a lot of fun in the distance!
Hej Michaela, how did you get to go to Cameroon as a doctor? This sounds great. I also studied in Shanghai for one semester and also did an internship there. It is a great experience when you have to deal with things like to search for accommodation, to register with the police / office, to pay electricity and to argue with the landlady about the removal of mold. At the police, I had to sign something, which consisted entirely of Chinese characters, no one could speak English and my Chinese is not so good that I can really read every word ... what I probably signed there? :-)
Hi sarah, I can imagine that was exciting. Now it does not matter what you signed, right? ;)

Private blogs - a contradiction?
Still, despite the growing accustomed to social media, there is a need to write trip reports non-public .
Authors have have no experience with social media, they don't want that everyone sees what they do on vacation, or family & friends are concerned.
Then is not a photo album with a few related entries? Why of online?
Bymondo.com offers a privacy and the ease of use of planning and blog (so the travel diary). Moreover, the author/traveler can unlimited invite friends and relatives to accompany the tour. These will be automatically notified when there is something new and can in turn greetings and send news (with pictures). So virtual post cards as many as you want.
The offer is used often and intensively. Some "private bloggers" publicly but, the tour after the first experiences when they realize that what they experience or discover, could be interested in maybe a larger circle.
Soon, we will consult our writers according to their motivations and experiences. We publish here the result bymondo'spublic blog.
If you want, can leave immediately, of course, also his opinion as a comment .

Nostalgic trains in Australia
Today we imagine 3 nostalgic trains in Australia, which criss -cross drive you across the continent.
The Ghan - the North-South connection between Darwin and Adelaide
The nostalgic train runs between the Northern Darwin via Alice Springs, cooler Pedy and Port Augusta in the South Adelaide and Tacoola. Less than 3,000 km track lead all across the continent. The Ghan was probably inspired by the Afghan camel leaders who ensured until the development of the Interior of Australia by train in the 19th century, that were populated coastal regions in the brisk trade with each other. The trade caravans with camels de-emphasized the use of long-distance. Through the use of aircraft in turn by long-distance trade was unattractive, so the Ghan is now primarily a hotel train. Today, a trip takes between 47 and 49 hours, and most of the passengers only sections with the train.
By the way: the train was built in 1951-52 in Kassel. The wall decorations showed earlier in the saloons the Hercules statue and fountains from Kassel-Wilhelmshöhe.
The overland - the South link between Adelaide and Melbourne
The name overland derives from the term Overlander, which was to compare in the 19th century with tramp. An itinerant overland adventurer. The then pure sleep train 18 hours needed for the nearly 900 km long route. Today the overland as a day train seat car available and needed just 14 hours.
Indian Pacific - the East-West link between Perth and Sydney
The Indian Pacific requires the 2,659 km long line between Perth and Adelaide about 41 hours. It continues to Sydney from Adelaide. This route is 1,693 km again and required a period of 24 hours. Kalgoorlie, Cook and broken Hill are great stops of the route. 1927 the trans railway was opened, only sections could be used because they were different bespurt. Some sections of track were built as Cape gauge, other than standard gauge or broad gauge. Until 1970 with the unification of the tracks, it was possible to drive the entire route between Perth and Sydney.

Australia-special / / great barrier reef
The great barrier reef is the largest coral reef in the world and belongs to the UNESCO world natural heritage site. Islands, which lie in the Pacific Ocean are about 1000 to the reef. The reef extends to the tiny island of Lady Eliot, which lies about 75 km north of Bundaberg from Papua New Guinea. The little Lady Eliot is grade once 870m-long island, 670m wide and has an area of 45ha. The runway extends even across the southernmost island of the great barrier reef. A holiday resort is located on the island. Who is in the autumn there, can see the little turtles hatch. The plant staff juveniles at night to find the direct route to the sea, without having to run or to be eaten by birds of prey or snakes. Hotel guests can see. The island is popular for snorkeling: the shallow water and the colourful diversity of the reef are suitable for families with children. With a little luck, snorkelers Manta spot small clown fish, rays and seahorses. Black sea cucumbers, found on the beach by Lady Eliot if you lifted it from both ends bubble let sea water also.
A more beautiful island in the great barrier reefFraser Iceland. With an area of 1840 km 2 Fraser Iceland is one of the largest sand island in the world, so that is half as large as Rügen and located about 190 miles north of Brisbane off the East coast of Australia. The aborigines, Australia's indigenous people call the island K'gari, which means as much as paradise. Their dingoes are characteristic of the island. The sand-coloured dogs, which live here freely, are under special protection of the species. Who walks on the long sandy beaches perhaps discovered an old ship wreck. The luxury liner S.S. Maheno. ran here in 1935 due to a non-typical for the season cyclone aground. Since then, at least the upper deck of the vessel on the fine sands of Fraser Iceland is located.
