Last Summer, we visited the island country Malta in the Mediterranean Sea. Although small (about 320 square kilometers), we found Malta to be incredibly beautiful and full of wonderful sites. 

Now anyone staying a week or even a couple of days will be able to cover the best known and most iconic places. For that reason, we limited this article to a series of our 100 favorite pictures (and one video) taken during our trip....

We just got back from Cyprus and I have loads of stories to tell you guys! First off: the island, located in the Mediterranean Sea, is beautiful. Besides the overpowering natural treasures ranging from pristine beaches, jaw-dropping sea caves to vast mountain regions, Cyprus has an abundance of historical and archaeological sites. Perhaps more of interest to me: they have many pools too and lots of kind and patient people....

After spending a week in Vietnam, we spend 5 days in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Now Cambodia is well known for its countless temples and although it's definitely worth seeing a couple of them on your visit, we found that Cambodia has much more to offer. If you're going to spend a week or so in and around Siem Reap, this article might come in handy. So let's get straight to all the good stuff.

TEMPLES

Earlier this year, we spend a long week in Hanoi, Vietnam and it was wonderful! We saw a lot of the lively city and made the most out of our days by going on several lengthy and impressive excursions. So let me tell you all about our adventures in beautiful Vietnam and how I did over there. 

FLYING

Ok, let's get this straight out in the open: long flights are getting harder for me. I usually take a nap for a couple of hours -to...

Last year, we spend about a week in Costa Rica and we had a great time! Costa Rica is an immensely beautiful country with an abundance of tropical wildlife. Cool fact: while Costa Rica only has about 0.03% of the world's landmass, it contains 5% of the world's biodiversity! 

Although we did quite a bit during our stay, we certainly only saw a fraction of what the country has to offer. In this blog entry we will take y...

Traveling around the world with an autistic child like me can be quite a challenge. During the planning phase, my parents always have to take my special needs into account and decide which activities or locations are off limits and which are greenlit. 

Recently, we spend a week in Bonaire and mommy and daddy thought this might just be the perfect island for me! And it was!

Bonaire was part of the Netherlands Antilles until 2010,...

Last year, we visited Bali, Indonesia and our return flight to Amsterdam included a 17 hour layover in Shanghai, China. Sounds pretty miserable right, especially when traveling with a child? Well, it shouldn't be and this article will explain why and how to make the best of it. 

The first thing you should check is whether you are eligible for a 'Visa-Free Transit'. Currently, 51 countries can apply for such a visa upon arrival...

In October 2018, when I was 4 and a half years old, we went to Bali, Indonesia for a week and we had a great time! My parents kept saying what a wonderful little island this is to explore with kids, autistic or not. Despite its small size, there is a lot to see and do, from cultural sites and temples to waterfalls and stunning beaches. Bali is located in between Java and Lombok and is the only Hindu-majority province in Indone...

I just got back from one of our most adventurous trips ever: JORDAN! It is such a beautiful and friendly country and I really enjoyed discovering new sites and locations every day. I hope the above video compilation captures all the fun and excitement we had. Let me break down the 10 greatest things we saw in Jordan.

1. PETRA

One of the most famous locations in the world! This ancient city was likely the capital of The Nabataea...

It's a bit hard to talk about all the places you've been without coming across as a bit boastful. I know. I hear stuff around me like: 'That kid's seen more in 4 years than most people will see in their entire lifetime!' It's not our intention to instill envy or whatever. Of course not. We are however very proud of the course our life has taken and mommy and daddy think that exploring the world with me, despite all the trials...
