Our Projects

This is a travel blog of Inga and Floh. We keep our budget low, but still enjoy food, hospitality and culture to the fullest. How? Read in our blog! We travel together with our two stuffed traveling monkeys, Bimbino and Bambina. We love monkey photography. Wanna know what it is? Read our blog :)

Let us introduce ourselves...

I am Inga, nice to meet you!
I made this website as an online base for our projects. Here I develop my web-design skills and knowledge, write blog where I share information about travels, monkey making business, and some other stuff I love or hate, enjoy doing or find boring, etc.
I love independent travelling, exploring the possibilities of budget travels; I am happy to share my knowledge, experiences, travel tips with you and inspire you to see the world yourself!
Hello, I am Florian.
Most people call me flohfish nowadays. I have been a passionate traveller, hitchhiker and Couchsurfer for one and a half decades now and I just cannot get rid of that bug anymore. My daily routine is that of a social worker, but I try to break out of it as often as possible: most times only for a long weekend, sometimes, however, for a couple of months. During my travels I am especially interested in geography, history, architecture, the local cuisine and of course the different people I meet.
I am responsible for Instagram and the Monkey Diary, blog article, public relations, and, of course, sewing our hand-made Travelling Monkeys.
Let's play!
Taking the life serious? Why not?! BUT, never forget to treat the child in you. We like to play :) Meet Bimbino: our handmade travel mascot, protagonist of many our blog stories, and the best entertainer for children, both young and adult.
Cute and sexy, he has long legs and charming ears, but most important he has a huge heart and a big smile. Bimbino started travelling even before his huge heart was put inside his chest, and his head was attached to his body. Since he was born in September 2012 he has visited more than twenty countries.
Bimbino would not be the same without his favourite travel partner. Meet Bambina: our handmade travel mascot, protagonist of many our blog stories, and the best entertainer for children, both young and adult.
Sexy and cute, she has beautiful fur colour and charming eyes. Bambina is the best travel partner, and best friend of Bimbino. Moreover, they are brother and sister, even though they often forget about it. It is not that bad after all, Targaryens also did that mistake, and had a great history after all.

At the moment we are...

...back in Germany 🇩🇪
We are looking forwards to come back to our flat in Cologne, which is still occupied by a nice student couple until the end of July. Until then we are visiting friends, travelling to weddings, bier tastings, and birthdays. Offline life is busy, therefore, no time to blog. (July 11th, 2018)

George Town, Malaysia 🇲🇾
After two weeks backpacking in beautiful and unspoiled Myanmar, we have moved on to the Malayan peninsular. Our first week here we spend in an AirBnB in Kuala Lumpur and meeting up with some Couchsurfing friends. On Monday we hitchhiked to Penang. This weekend we are planning to explore the UNESCO protected old town of its capital George Town.

Bagan, Myanmar 🇲🇲
After one month in Ho Chi Minh City, we have left Vietnam for a two weeks backpacking holiday in Myanmar. After a couple of days in Yangon, we hitchhiked to Mandalay. Today we have arrived in the ancient city of Bagan, famous for its thousands of temples and pagodas.

Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), Vietnam 🇻🇳
We have rented a flat, together with three friends from Norway, Spain and the USA. It is great that we can spend time together at the other end of the world. We don't have any particular plans yet for the next weeks, aside of working and blogging. We only know that we want to get to know the city a bit and probably also some parts of Vietnam.

We are relaxing on the beaches of Thailand 🇹🇭
However, relaxing can be well combined with blogging. Therefore, we have decided to dare a new start for our blog. Read the latest article about our plans and follow our monkeys on Instagram; Floh is still posting there every day. At the moment even in a real insta mode!

We are thinking of posting loads of material about Iceland, but do nothing due to the lack of time. If the lack of time is real is another question. Basically we are busy with all kind of stuff except for our blog. However, some Iceland photos you can find now on our Instagram; Floh is posting there every day.
