My name is Martin and this is my story. I travel because it is fun and a great way to continue self-education which enriches the worldview and opens my eyes to unnoticeable things, both in the distant countries and the closest ones. Let's get to know other cultures but let's also respect and defend our own.

A few words from the author

Whilst travelling from the Christian remains of Constantinople and the ancient sands of Persia, through the Himalayas, the Great Wall of China and the dense jungles of Borneo, I realized that the world must have its order. Therefore despite my beautiful adventures and experiences I always remembered which culture I myself belonged to, and I also appreciated the beauty and values of our beautiful - White Christian civilization.

Indonesia – my adventure in Sumatra

By: Martin Malik
My unplanned trip to Sumatra turned out to be a very good experience in terms of human contact. I saw the realities of Indonesia. People were very natural, eager to talk to the unknown stranger, and the living conditions were dire. (Indonesia should be never seen through the prism of Bali !!)

By: Martin Malik
I am going to visit the following countries: Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. I will travel though the Pamir Highway and see ancient cities on the Silk Road.

Greetings from Uzbekistan

By: Martin Malik
I'm sending my best wishes from Uzbekistan. This country is sadly the last during my quest around Central Asia, but it does not mean that it is worse or less important. Uzbekistan is a true pearl of the Silk Road what now can be seen in cities such as Samarkand, Bukhara and Khiva.

I've been travelling around "the land of golden pagodas" for about a month and it is a fascinating adventure. Last time I was in Burma in 2004 but far too short, that`s why this time I wanted to see Burma at its best and spend enough time there.

Wonderful trip to Thailand

By: Martin Malik
Last time I was in Thailand in 2004 but mainly to train Thai-boxing. Since then several things have changed. Firstly the prices have gone up a little, although to me it was even more expensive because I took a woman and a child; "the two who bring only chaos to my expeditions and completely ruin my budget."

The Southeast Asia trip 2012

By: Martin Malik
This year's expedition I could easily call "the trip in the financial crisis" because after my return from the four-month expedition in 2011, I've not had a permanent job, and further search simply did not make any sense. However, I decided to not to give up, and in spite of bad fate still fulfill my plans.

Trip to the Sultanate of Brunei

By: Martin Malik
I am definitely not a fan of Islam, but certain Islamic architecture was beautiful and worth seeing, provided of course that all the monumental mosques remain in Brunei and would not be built in Europe. I recommend Brunei as an interesting stop-over at the end of the world where one can see long-nosed monkeys in the wild.

Trip to Cambodia

By: Martin Malik
I visited a lot of places because I had plenty of time, but wherever I went I was under impression, that Cambodia exists and breaths with life only for the temples of Angkor Wat.

Trip to Vietnam

By: Martin Malik

Expedition to West Asia 2013

By: Martin Malik
Ancient Persia is one of the oldest civilization of the world, and it has a lot of historical and cultural heritage, rich art and good people. Regarding terrorism and the "axis of evil" it simply makes me laugh when I hear about it, Globalists have military bases in the Middle East, the terrorists state of Israel, and thousands of nuclear bombs - and Iran has none. This proves the best who is the threat to whom. In the picture, the Supreme Leader of Iran Ali Khamenei.

Trip to Azerbaijan

By: Martin Malik
In Xinaliq I hiked the mountains, I used people`s hospitality and good humour and I watched the traditional shepherd life next to the border with Russia (Dagestan).

Trip to Georgia

Traveling around Georgia is a mountain adventure in search of old fortified churches, sometimes also located by blue lakes. Besides, Georgians make good bread and cheeses, and sweet pomegranates are the pride of Georgia. Georgia is a very pleasant tourist destination. There are also cave cities, the pretty capital of Georgia, Tbilisi; and above all picturesque mountain landscapes with its beautiful churches.
