#day365 – champagne shower

This is it. Done. 365 first times. One year of doing, seeing, learning something new every day. I somehow can’t believe it’s over now. Wasn’t it yesterday when I was sitting on my balcony writing my first blog post? Time flies, friends! It was an incredible year, my 30th year of age. And I’m able […]

#day359 – stucked at a festival

To be honest, even though I always had a blast on Lollapalooza festivals, there was always an organisational disaster. In 2015 people had to pee behind food trucks, because they weren’t enough toilets and and the waiting time in a queue was 45 minutes on an average. After that there was one toilet for each […]

#day346 – breakfast with a parrot

Every hostel has its own pet in South and Central America. Actually it’s not only one. They usually have cats or dogs and sometimes both. They pick them up from the street to save their life or just accept them when they move in by themselves. While I was having breakfast today, the hostel’s quite […]

#day320 – river tubing

There’s only one thing to do in Palomino besides beaching. Tubing. Tubing down Palomino river. I know tubing only from fun parks. It’s something different on a jungle river. It was so much fun. One of those moments when you ask yourself how great life can be. The adventure started with a short taxi ride […]

#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 […]

#day316 – alone at the nudist beach

Alright, beaches here in Tayrona Park are a dream. And the beach just in front of our tent is actually the best one. Incredibly picturesque. Because it’s at the same time one of a handful beaches, where you can go into the water (the waves at other beaches are too strong) you’re not alone, of […]

#day313 – hostel toilet wisdom

Hostels use different explanations to remind us western tourists why you shouldn’t throw toilet paper into the toilet. It’s basically because it blocks the toilet. Canal systems are too small to handle anything that doesn’t come out of our body. I haven’t heard of the consequence yet, my current hostels uses. Every time I flush […]

#day311 – mud bathing in a volcano

I can’t deny I had quite a few volcano experiences already. The one today was one of the most interesting though. Honestly said you can hardly call El Totulum a volcano. It’s a tiny little hill, which you wouldn’t even recognize without knowing that it’s a volcano. As you know, it’s not all about the […]

#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 […]

#day295 – sitting on the equator

Ecuador is the only country in whole Southamerica where it’s easy to identify the equator, because the line lies along the Andes and not in the middle of the rainforest. That’s why a French expedition team in the early 18th century marked a point close to Quito as a position on the equator. Nowadays there’s […]
