I love trains and the best way to explore #Kazakhstan is by train. Kazakhstan is the ninth biggest country in the world, but has the same population as the Netherlands. To travel the long distances through the endless steppes the train is the way to go. From #Astana to #Shymkent & #Turkestan to #Almaty. #Backpackadventures #SoloFemaleTravel #Backpacking #BudgetTravel #Travel #Travelblog #Travelblogger #Backpacker #Femaletravelblogger

This Collab brought me back to #Haiti and the wonderful time I had there. Haiti has a rich culture with a slightly dark side to it. #Voodoo is much more though than the black magic being portrayed in the Western media. It's a religion with it's own gods and goddesses. Both good and bad. One thing is for sure. There is a saying that Haiti is 80% catholic, but still 100% voodoo. Whatever someone's religious beliefs, some beliefs in voodoo still influence daily life in Haiti. #Backpackadventures #SoloFemaleTravel #Backpacking #BudgetTravel #Travel #Travelblog #Travelblogger #Backpacker #Femaletravelblogger

Ever since I came back I keep thinking about my trip to Kazakhstan. THere is something about #Kazakhstan that got into my heart. A lot of it has to do with the friendliness and hospitality of the people, the interesting history and the beauty of the landscapes. One of the highlights of my trip was the weekendtour to the #Charyn Canyon, #Kaindy lake and the Kolsai lakes with Almaty Backpackers Hostel. Kazakhstans wilderness at it's best. #Backpackadventures #SoloFemaleTravel #Backpacking #BudgetTravel #Travel #Travelblog #Travelblogger #Backpacker #Femaletravelblogger

#Almaty was definetly my favourite city in #Kazakhstan. There is so much to see and do and most of all it is a green city surrounded by the snowcapped peaks of the Tian Shan mountains. #Backpackadventures #SoloFemaleTravel #Backpacking #BudgetTravel #Travel #Travelblog #Travelblogger #Backpacker #Femaletravelblogger

The South of #Kazakhstan was a joy to visit. Kazakh's silk road cities are full of history and the mausoleum of Khoja Ahmed Yasawi is a beauty. If you visit Kazakhstan and you have time make sure you add #Shymkent and #Turkestan to your itinerary. #Backpackadventures #SoloFemaleTravel #Backpacking #BudgetTravel #Travel #Travelblog #Travelblogger #Backpacker #Femaletravelblogger

I still have such good memories from my days in #Monrothuruttu (or Munroe's Island) at Vijay's homestay. I wrote this small piece, because for me these days were definetly some days of peace and quietness. A place for reflection and appreciating the beauty around you. #India #Kerala #Backpackadventures #SoloFemaleTravel #Backpacking #BudgetTravel #Travel #Travelblog #Travelblogger #Backpacker #Femaletravelblogger

Finally I made it to #Kazakhstan and the futuristic city of #Astana. It was a very interesting experience. Astana is the youngest and coldest (winters can be -40 degrees !!) capital in the world. Nazarbayev moved Kazakhstan's capital in 1997 to a small town called Akmole and started a building frenzy that is not over yet. Behind the glitter and glamour of all the modern architecture is a city with great food and friendly people.
