#day353 – Sagrada Selfie

Last time I’ve been standing in front of the Sagrada Familia, an impressive catholic church and the must-see in Barcelona, I was missing a smart phone. I got my first smart phone one year later. Means after several visits, I finally have my obligatory selfie. Five years ago they sold only magnets in front of […]

#day323 – Caribbean book read

I started reading the second book since I’m travelling. Six months on the road and I just finished one book. I usually love reading books, but days are too short. Even here in Southamerica. And I have to do something new ever day. That’s time consuming. The good thing about the beach is it’s an […]

#304 – playing Tejo

Tejo is a famous Columbian game. And Salento seems to be a famous place to play it. There’s a Tejo bar, which is equally frequented from tourists and old men, who gather together to play it and get drunk. You can’t play Tejo without getting drunk, that’s what people say. A spectacle, I definetely wanted […]

#day242 – playing a puppet piano

While I walked through ‘Little Italy’ yesterday I figured out La Paz has some interesting little museums to offer. There’s even a so called museums street, where you can buy one ticket for five different museums. Well, five museums on one day for a museums-hater might be a bit tough, but I wanted to give […]

#day224 – new travel reading

Believe it or not. I’m carrying a book around Southamerica since Uruguay and didn’t read one single page so far. There’re different reasons for. First, it looks like there was always something better to do. Means I was never so bored that the only option was reading a book. Second, I use waiting times and […]

#day187 – museo de la memoria

I told you, museums aren’t my favorite freetime activity, but after several recommendations for the Museum of Memories and Human Rights in Santiago, I thought I should check it out. As are all public museums in Chile, the entrance is for free anyways. Because they offered German audio guides, I was so generous today and even treated myself with one. Most […]

#day185 – Valpo streetart tour

When South America is heaven on earth for streetart, the little coastal town Valparaiso is the gateway to this heaven. I’m amazed at all those tiny and picturesque alleys, nesteled between several hills and dozens of stunning lookouts. There’s always a huge impressive mural waiting around the next corner. I could wander around forever without getting tired of […]

#day174 – women’s day demonstration

Buenos Aires welcomed me with a big demonstration, when I returned today. A women’s day demonstration. Even though I appreciate, that these women fight for their rights, I was a bit annoyed by the tumult today. The problem was I had quite a long return journey from Montevideo to Buenos Aires and the ferry stopped […]

#day169 – Evita’s story

Eleanor Roosevelt, Frida Kahlo, Peggy Guggenheim…There have been some powerful women in the past, who inspire me a lot with their groundbreaking thoughts and activities. In Argentina Evita Peron is THE woman. Their first lady. She was the wife of Juan Peron, who won the presidential election in 1946, not at least due to Evita’s […]
