#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 […]

#day329 – the story behind the black fishermen

When I was walking around Cartagena, trying to find a nice postcard, it was the first time I got in contact with the black fishermen. It’s apparently a typical postcard picture here.

#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.

One of those moments when you ask yourself how great life can be. The adventure started with a short taxi ride […]

#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 […]
