#day354 – on top of Tibidabo

Malaga or Barcelona. We couldn’t really decide where to go for our little girls reunion. I mean it’s a hard decision. Both cities are super cool, whereas I haven’t been in Malaga so far. It’s just what I’ve heard. We only knew we want to have sun and beach. The girls even more than I. […]

#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 […]

#day351 – Barcelona bound

I’m back. Back in Europe. Crazy. Just one short night in the plane and I’m back on my continent after so many months in Southamerica, the other end of the world. Almost every nightbus lasted longer than this return flight. Well, part one of three coming home parts. It doesn’t feel like coming home just […]

#day348 – overlooking Panama City

Even though many parts of Panama City are quite dodgy and the downtown area, actually a World Heritage Site, is rather small and boring, there are a few nice spots in town. Ancon hill for example. A little hill in the  middle of the city, 600 something meters above sea level and Panama City’s highest […]

#day336 – Panama City’s skyline

Back to reality. After four days of island hopping in the Caribbean Sea we’re in Panama’s capital now. Panama City. That’s a hard change of locations. I’m kind of shocked. And not only because we went from a deserted island to the urban jungle. It’s Panama City itself. To be honest, I had no idea […]

#305 – Medellín by night

I finally made it to Medellin. A city in the middle of Columbia, every traveller is talking good things about. It’s one of the cheapest places on earth to buy cocaine. One gram for 3 dollar. In Australia it’s 300 dollars, for example. Insane. I was really keen to see what the city has to […]

#day298 – strolling through Bogotá

Even though everything went well in the end, my first day in Columbia’s capital wasn’t the best. The traffic in the center is horrible. Well, our bus was still on time, nothing to complain. The first real problem was finding our hostel. We had just the name and no address and our taxi driver was […]

#day271 – relaxing at waikiki beach

There’s no better preparation for a nightbus than relaxing at the beach. And it’s actually not only a nightbus. 17 hours on the Panamerican road along the Peruvian coast. One night and half a day. The stay in Lima was a short one. I could spend a bit more time in town. Just to enjoy […]

#day270 – strolling through Lima

And again. Against all sayings my first impression of Peru’s capital is a good one. I haven’t seen the old town, but Miraflores and Barranco, the districts where we have been today, are quite nice. Both districts are located at the coast and definitely areas for the upper class and rich tourists. It’s all about restaurants, […]

#day241 – Bolivia’s little Italy

Once again I’m back in La Paz. As you can see, I like it here. No seriously,  I love this city. Still dozens of first times to try, explore or discover. When I strolled through the old town today I discovered a wonderful little alley. Calle Jaén. And suddenly you’re in Italy. Old little buildings, […]
