#day364 – craft beer tasting

The area around Hackescher Markt isn’t my first choice, when it comes to going out for a drink on a Thursday night. Neither on another weekday actually. Bars are a bit too charmless there. But when there are friends around, who I haven’t seen for months I can deal with it, of course. And it […]

#day331 – Colombian farewell gift

And once again I have to say goodbye. Goodbye to a country, I really enjoyed to travel in. Today it’s a really special goodbye though. It’s not only a goodbye to Colombia, it’s even more a goodbye to South America for me. After more than six months on this continent I’m going on a trip […]

#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. […]

#day301 – Club Columbia

Every new country means new local beer. Most of the time there’re two or three beers, which you get all over the country. The most famous so to say. You just have to figure out at the beginning, which one you like the most. The three most common beers in Columbia are Aguila, Poker and […]

#day300 – hot chocolate with cheese

I can be really disgusting when it comes to food experiments. I eat almost everything and I love to try gross things. I should actually participate in the German TV Show Dschungelcamp, where I can try crocodile penis. Problem is, I’m not famous enough (yet). To be honest my food experience today wasn’t that disgusting. […]

#day280 – happy hour hopping extreme

What to do when you’re on vacations and it’s raining the whole day? Well, I think it’s the permission to start drinking in the afternoon already. I don’t mean hardcore drinking. I mean having a little cocktail. Something to cheer you up. Rain season here in Montanita just started but the weather is nothing else […]

#day273 – drinking Emoliente Especial

I tried a juice with Aloe Verá in Cusco. It was so disgusting, that I had to throw it away. I don’t throw away food in general. Even if it’s not tasty I try to finish it. This one wasn’t drinkable though. Definitely the ugliest drink I had in my whole life. Since Aloe Verá […]

#day201 – Fanta Papaya

Very seldom, that I drink softdrinks. I had to make an exception today, when I saw they sell Fanta with papaya flavour here. I love papaya and the ones they have here are delicious. Well, the drink has nothing to do with the taste of the fruit, but at least it was refreshing after an afternoon […]

#day183 – surviving an earthquake

Since today I can say, I survived an earthquake. Hardly surprising, because I’m in a region in the world, where little earthquakes happen almost everyday. They are just too weak to notice them. The earthquake tonight I felt pretty heavy. The natural disaster was a pinkish mixture of white wine (the cheapest one I ever had), pineapple ice-cream […]
