#day344 – cresting Volcán Baru

I wanted to crest at least one volcano in Southamerica. I failed. Too high, too expensive, still active…there was always an excuse. Volcán Baru, the only volcano in Panama, was my final chance. Now or never. And the conditions have been perfect. With an altitude of 3475 meters Volcán Baru is also the highest peak […]

#day342 – finding the lost waterfalls

Oh, such a long time I didn’t go trekking. Must have been somewhere in Colombia. I can’t even really remember. Since Peru after every trek I use to say, it was for sure my last one. But there was always a next one. I compare it with a birth. You forget how hard it was, […]

#day325 – rainbow over Taganga

The only thing I’ve actually seen in Taganga is a rainbow. We planned to stay just for one night as a stopover. Good plan, Taganga is pretty ugly. A stinky little fishing village with a crowded beach and some tourist shops. And the beach isn’t even a nice one. Colombia can do it better. So […]

It’s the most beautiful one, though. The one with white sandy beaches, turquoise warm water and huge palm trees. Cartagena is a coast […]

#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 […]

#day302 – highest palm trees in the world

What a mystical place on earth. Valle de Cocora, the valley with the highest palm trees in the world. I’m a well known palm trees lover, those plants are different though. Not less beautiful, but different. Up to 60 meters high, incredible skinny from the bottom to the top and with just a few little […]
