    Food edition Arequipa!

    October 21, 2018 in Peru ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    We did it - we finally tried guniea pig...not sure what to say. The taste itself is good but it's a little bit strange that the whole thing is served incl. the head that is looking at you. 😂
    Additional some more delicious food that we tried - pancakes as breakfast in the hostel, coca tea, helado queso, empanada and so much more! And we still have not tried everything that is out there!

    Colca Valley

    October 20, 2018 in Peru ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    We did a day trip to the beautiful colca valley. The tour advertised that we will go to the canyon...but that did not turn out to be accurate...nevertheless we spend a full day in the countryside of Peru and got to see the beautiful nature, inca terraces and some alpacas.
    The Peruvians for sure know how to promote the number one tourist attraction alpacas, dressed up for a good picture...

    Short stop - Piura

    October 18, 2018 in Peru ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    Peru is our speed-up country. The country is huge and we do not have enough time. First stop is Piura, but only for a night and afterwards we will travel to Lima for another night. We have a longer stay ahead in Arequipa. Therefore only a short post.
    In Piura we tried some of the typical Peruvian food: leche de tigre and delicious beer (the dark bottle is a black beer that has a bit of a taste of chocolate).

    Galapagos / Isla Española - D8

    October 17, 2018 in Ecuador ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    And another full day trip! 🤗
    Today we went to the Isla Española. It's a beautiful island with thousands of naszca boobies, albatrosses and hawks and other birds. Our guide was amazing and gave us a perfect introduction about the birdlife. After an amazing lunch we went snorkeling with sea lions. If you turn and blow bubbles in the water they love it and really interact with you! That was the most amazing experience for me and I could have stayed there for at least another couple of hours. In the evening we went out for the last meal on these beautiful island. We don't want to leave this wonderful place!Read more

    Sea lions are competing with pigs!

    October 17, 2018, South Pacific Ocean ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    After spending so many days with sea lions I have to say that it is hard for me to decide if pigs are still my favourite animal. After naming the first sea lion Hernandez, they are all Hernandez's now. They are very curious and interactive with people, it's funny to spend time on a beach with them lying and swimming next to them. One day we thought that one of the sea lions is sick because it was coughing heavily, we later found out that they swallow stones in the morning in order to be able to dive deeper. And they all have a lot of babies!!!
    I also decided to stay here as I found a new family! Sea lions adopt me! 🤗

    Galapagos / San Cristobal - D7

    October 16, 2018 in Ecuador ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Today's tour was a good combination of snorkeling and a short hike to watch some rare birds. We went to Punta Pitt.
    First snorkeling was good but freezing cold so I was happy to get out of the water after the second round of snorkeling. Today we did not see as much as the day before but it still was fun. In the afternoon we went for a short hike and saw red- and blue-footed boobies. I am generally not the bird-watching type but it's different here. In addition Punta Pitt has an amazing landscape - rocky and not as flat as Santa Cruz or the main area on San Cristobal. All in all another perfect day!Read more

    Turtle or turtoise? !

    October 16, 2018, South Pacific Ocean ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    If you think about the Galapagos this animal is probably the most prominent. On the island Santa Cruz they are also on the streets and come with different "houses" and sizes. I also tried to be one for a few minutes and I am happy that I don't have to carry around my house all the time! 😊
    During our snorkeling trips we also saw some swimming with us!

    Galapagos / San Cristobal - D6

    October 15, 2018 in Ecuador ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Today was the first of our three tours - kicker's rock and snorkeling with hammerheads! Despite the wildlife and landscape under water was amazing. And I survived my first snorkeling experience in deeper water. 💪🏻
    Hope to get underwater pictures from the other snorkelers soon!
