#day358 – yellow rubber boots

My first weekend in Berlin is going to be a special one. Lollapalooza festival is welcoming me back in town. It’s initially an Americal music festival, first placed in Chicago in the early 90’s, but nowadays also once a year in Southamerica and Europe. Since the first European release – in Berlin in 2015 – […]

#day338 – blue eye bracelet

That’s destiny. I lost my blue bracelet a few days ago. Actually I didn’t loose it, it was falling apart. Too much salt water. I wanted to cry, it was a special one. Since I bought it last October in Lisbon I never removed it. It was a symbol for an amazing time. Today, just […]

#day326 – polka-dotted cool bag

I’m travelling now for six month without a proper handbag. My only handbag is a gym bag. Practical for a city walk, pretty impractical for a trek lasting several days. I always had to rent a small backpack when I went trekking. It worked out for me. And in my defence, I didn’t expect to […]

#day265 – red cap

Since we’re hanging out with the riders almost all day long, I was so lucky to get a red cap today. It’s actually a riders cap, but there have been some left and so I got one as well. Pretty cool. I can pretend to be a rider now. Everyone in Huacachina knows, what a […]

#day255 – mio mio make-up

Backpacking and make-up are two things, which don’t fit together. I have to  admit, I carry a little make-up bag with me, but the use is seldom. Just for special days. Well, and sometimes when I feel like a bit colour in my face. I actually don’t have a problem to leave the house without […]

#day253 – water bottle travel gear

Everyone was laughing about me, when I said I need a practical carry bag for my water bottle. The problem is, my daypack is unfortunately too small for a big water bottle and I have to carry it with my hands all the time. That sucks. Since quite a while I see those touristy bottle […]

#day249 – fabulous fake havaianas

The most beautiful shoes I ever had are gone. My original black havaianas, which I bought in Rio during the world cup in 2014. They weren’t normal shoes. They were extremly good looking as well as really practical, multifunctional and cozy. After thousands of kilometres they died on the El Choro Trek two weeks ago. […]

#day215 – Andean alpaca sweater

This sweater pursued me since I’m travelling. Especially since I’m travelling up north in the mountain regions. Atacama Desert in Chile, Salta in Argentina and here in Bolivia. Every second backpacker has one. Girls, boys, everyone. They exist in different colors but the pattern is always the same. I actually don’t like such backpacker stuff, […]

#day175 – restocking my travel wear

I was in a shopping mood today. Every girl know what I mean. My truly last and final day in Buenos Aires. I finally move further. I had to cheer myself up. I think that’s understandable. Backpackers usually don’t buy things, which they have to carry for the rest of their travels and which are […]
