#day352 – being on the run from bachelor partys

It’s not my first time in Barcelona. To be honest, I’m not sure how often I’ve been here before exactly. For sure two times. Maybe three times. I remember the last time I’ve been in town, though. Summer 2012. I’ve visited a good friend of mine, who was studying here. Things in Barcelona changed since […]

#day308 – celebrating Columbia’s independence

The celebration of Columbia’s independence started actually already yesterday. The whole Poblado district was a big party. We joined the fun and danced a bit Salsa with the locals. Not my preferred type of dance but when in Southamerica… After a long sleep I tried to find a bit more party in the old town, […]

#day209 – Bolivian children’s day

I thought children’s day is an international day and it is celebrated all around the world on June 1st. It’s not, how I learnt today. Many countries, especially in America have their own date. The Spanish version Dia del Niño is either on a Sunday, for example in Argentina (3rd Sunday in August) and Peru (2nd Sunday in April) or on a […]

#day207 – celebrating town twinning

My former high school has a partnership with a Bolivian high school since round about 20 years. I still remember me and my classmates around christmas, when we packed christmas gifts and donated them for kids of our partner school in Samaipata, Bolivia. Samaipata is a pretty small town, not far away from Santa Cruz. […]

#day188 – Venezuelan dinner party

Once again I have to admit I’m a big city girl. Many travellers advised me to skip Santiago de Chile. It’s only a big city. There’s not much to see. Typical backpacker phrases. I went nevertheless and regret it not at all. In the end I stayed even longer as I expected. Sure, one thing that […]

#day163 – Argentinian carnival corso

I had quite an intense research to figure out, where all the carnival magic happens here. When you’re asking around, everyone says there are some street corsos with music, costumes and that stuff but it’s not a big thing. It seems most locals give a shit about carnival here. They’re just happy to have two […]

The show attracts round about […]

#day114 – party in a closet

Make your way to Kreuzberg, ask around for a bar called Vögelchen, crawl into a closet once you’re there, climb a steep stair downward into the basement and you’ll find yourself in the hottest venue in town. Seriously, the whole magic lies behind a closet as high as my hips. A great party starts with the entrance. […]

#day111 – playing Nobody is perfect in English

“Nobody is perfect” is one of my favorite board games. Someone asks questions about things, noone knows the answer and you have to invent an intelligent sounding answer. The one with the best answers wins. Knowing the right answer brings you points, but inventing a good one brings you even more. It’s already challenging to […]
