#day337 – Bocas biking squad

Finally back to an island paradise. Just one short night in a big city and I already missed the islands and the beach. That’s why I took immediately a nightbus across whole Panama to Bocas del Toro, the country’s best place for beaching and partying. And a bit island hopping once again. The first island […]

#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 […]

#day309 – paragliding

A really special first time today. Paragliding. Paragliding over Medellín, one of Columbia’s best cities with a special mountain scenery. The perfect place to do it, even more because it’s surprisingly cheap here in Columbia in general. Now or never, you know. And it was the last adventure activity on my bucket list. I’m honestly […]

I was able to ignore them up to here, but now it’s time. You can’t visit Baños without having outdoor fun. Well, alright, I give one […]

I had some serious thoughs about taking a real surf lesson. The fact, that it needs quite a long time to see a first little success on the board let me doubting so far. When I got the offer for a body board though, I thought it could be a beginning. And so I made my […]

#day274 – yoga at the beach

I really miss my yoga classes in Berlin. When I heard, that there are good yoga classes in Mancora I knew I want to check them out. There’s actually only one instructor in town, doing three classes per week, but it’s apparently a very good one. My yoga studio in Berlin is cozy and beautiful. […]

It lasts for five days and 40 riders will compete in four different categories. The organisation team is from Switzerland and the whole competition is supported by the […]

#day263 – sandboarding in the dunes

When in Huacachina you have to do sandboarding. It’s a must do. 200 meters high sand dunes are just too inviting. I’m not a snowboarder. I go skiing since round about 20 years and had never been on a snowboard my entire life. I’m happy with my ski, I was never really in the need […]
