#day319 – doing the yoga spider

My initial plan for Palomino was a yoga retreat. Five days of doing nothing else than yoga, eating healthy food and avoiding alcohol. Sounds good, wouldn’t it be so expensive. Why do only luxury resorts offer such retreats? There should be a yoga hostel in town. That’s definitely a business idea. Whatever, I’m doing my […]

#day318 – swinging in palm trees

Beach hopping along the coast is truly a pleasure. I enjoy it so much after all this time in the mountains. I can actually  make a challenge out of it: finding the best beach in Colombia. I’ve seen already gorgeous ones. And there’re many more to discover of course. Palomino beach where I arrived today […]

#day317 – over night in a hammock

My first time I slept a whole night in a hammock under a bamboo roof. My first time I saw the sea and palm trees immediately when I opened my eyes in the morning. Not my first time, I had a pretty bad sleep and felt quite exhausted after getting up. Well, after our first […]

#day316 – alone at the nudist beach

Alright, beaches here in Tayrona Park are a dream. And the beach just in front of our tent is actually the best one. Incredibly picturesque. Because it’s at the same time one of a handful beaches, where you can go into the water (the waves at other beaches are too strong) you’re not alone, of […]

#day314 – Lulo juice

Interesting that there are fruits, which you can only get in Columbia. Not even in Southamerica, only Columbia and maybe Ecuador. Lulo is such a fruit. I haven’t hear of Lulo before, but every fruit stall here sells Lulo juice and so I got curious. I could easily have a mango maracuya juice every day. […]

#day313 – hostel toilet wisdom

Hostels use different explanations to remind us western tourists why you shouldn’t throw toilet paper into the toilet. It’s basically because it blocks the toilet. Canal systems are too small to handle anything that doesn’t come out of our body. I haven’t heard of the consequence yet, my current hostels uses. Every time I flush […]

#day312 – swimming in the Caribbean Sea

It’s already my third ocean in Southamerica. The Atlantic Ocean, the Pacific Ocean and now the Caribbean Sea. Well, the third ocean is actually a sea and not an ocean, of course. It’s the most beautiful one, though. The one with white sandy beaches, turquoise warm water and huge palm trees. Cartagena is a coast […]

#day311 – mud bathing in a volcano

I can’t deny I had quite a few volcano experiences already. The one today was one of the most interesting though. Honestly said you can hardly call El Totulum a volcano. It’s a tiny little hill, which you wouldn’t even recognize without knowing that it’s a volcano. As you know, it’s not all about the […]

#day310 – Caribbean vibes

Finally, finally. Since Argentina I’m dreaming about the Caribbean coast. Now I’m here. I still can’t believe it. People who have been here before told me already, it’s incredibly hot. I always thought, it can’t be too hot for me. It’s exactly what I want after all those months in the mountains. When I arrived […]
