The Lost Juan | Flashpacking the World

Flashpacking the World

It’s backpacking, but better – no dodgy hostels, no bedbug-infested beds. I spend a little more for comfort, but still keep things within the budget. Comfy bunk beds? GOOD. Perks? THE BEST.

 

Come get lost and see the world with me. In style.

Where’s Juan?

Hanging out with locals (and fellow travellers) is one of the best ways to get to know a city. No doubt. So if we happen to be breathing the same air (and if you’re just as lost as I am), say hello!

 

But where is Juan?

Be Spontaneous

Buy that cheap airfare, get a one-way ticket, take that random bus … and get lost and live life in the process of discovering cities. Travelling opens so much more doors, and not many people realise that.

 

Find time and don’t let anyone stop you.

THE BALINESE

DREAM

A visual diary of living a rich man’s life in everyone’s favourite tropical island, sans maxing out credit cards. Flashpacking Bali was fun, and it wasn’t even as expensive as I thought it would be.

PILOT DREAMS FULFILLED

IN SINGAPORE

Singapore is one of my favourite cities, but I crossed to Indonesia to fly an ultralight aircraft over the famous holiday island of Bintan. Perfect for thrill-seekers, it is also the closest I can get to fulfilling my dreams of becoming a pilot. At least for now.

DISCOVER:

SOUTHERN THAILAND

Everyone seems to be raving about this island called “Koh Phi Phi” in Thailand and after two years, my curiosity has finally been put to an end. It took me a total of six hours flying over oceans and an extra two hours sailing the Andaman Sea to get to this rather famous island. I was not disappointed.
