    When arriving in Langkawi

    When you arrive in Langkawi there are a few things you need to know. Whether you come by plane or ferry. First of all, Pantai Cenang / Pantai Tengah area is the best if you want to experience beach, restaurants, bars and shops. There are lots of hotels here ranging from lowest budget to splurge […]

    Walking up to Gunung Raya

    Yes this is a nice but quite hard walk. It´s 4287 steps to the top and most of them are upwards (a few ones going down before the final stretch up.) Gunung Raya is the highest mountain on Langkawi. Start in Kampung Bukus (Book Village) and follow the path. The park in this area is […]

Trash Heroes

In Koh Lipe there is a non profit organia´sation that is called Trash hero. Every Monday at 10am they gather on Pattaya bech and then they go out on aboat to a beach nearby and clean it.  Companies on Lipe is providing food and beer. People just have to show up and off they go.2015-04-27 11.44.02(The beach on Koh Rawi, an island outside of Koh Lipe in the national park of Tarutao)

They also are working on making the whole of Koh Lipe free from plastic water bottles. They sell (without profit) a water container to reuse and it is free to fill it with water on some of the restaurants. In the first three months they reduced the use of water bottles dramatically on Lipe island. Their aim is to eliminate water bottles totally.

2015-04-27 13.30.17Yesterday me and Hery wanted to participate and our goal for the day was to put the collected flips-flips into (recycled) ice bags and then ship them off to Satun. The Flip-flops will be cut into pieces and melted together to make a flip-flip mosaic floor.  Together with the other trash heroes we bagged and shipped off 80.00 flip-flops!

trash heroes collect flip flops, for the environment, hero, picking trashThe lighters they collect become lamps in Koh Lanta because they are not recyclable.

60% of the pet water bottles that is washed ashore comes from Malaysia1.

Days before the monday group arrives volunteers are living on the beach and sort the trash out into different piles. Things that can be recycled is, of course, and others are often used to make art orlamps, just to make sure it doesn´t go to waste.

I am so impressed by the organisation of this group, the way they continue, endlessly (for 73 weeks this season) to work to keep the environment clean and beautiful.

I have had this idea to realise this on Langkawi and with H being the president of Rotary in Langkawi, she has a lot of connections, so maybe this can be a dream come true`

When doing this you know you are doing something good and it makes you feel good, the locals restaurants are providing food and beer a but they win an even more beautiful island. This will make even ore tourists come to visit, So it is a win win for everyone, including mother nature. In the process we are able to invite the children to teach them not to litter which will be good in about 10 years time when theygrown up. Teaching the children not to litter is our most important task right now, because they are the future generation, they can make a real difference.

    Jag sålde nästan allt jag ägde och befinner mig nu på resande fot. Kommer att leva på sparade pengar, försöka ta ett digitalt jobb, förhoppningsvis och njuta av livet som det ska njutas.
    JAG har hoppat av ekorrhjulet och försöker leva livet så som det ska göras. Njutningsfullt, livfullt och utan en massa saker som tynger.
