    Ciao Chile and South America!

    January 16 in Chile ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    Just checked in my monster long return flight to Germany with a 14h stopover in Toronto 😵...will definitely not spend it at the airport, so what should I do: Downtown Toronto or visit the Niagara falls?

    In any case I will be freezing with the temperatures in Canada 😲!

    Final chapter: Atacama

    January 15 in Chile ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Last days on my trip and I wanted still to see the legendary Atacama desert in Chile: Was a good decision to take an extra flight here before I enter my flight back to Germany tomorrow 😃!

    Geysirs, volcanoes, rainbow/moon and death valley were all quite impressive for me....so the final chapter is written!

    Looking forward now meeting all of you back in Germany 😃...but how every good movie, there has to be an sequel, starting soon 😜

    Desert crushing into the ocean

    January 10 in Peru ⋅ 🌙 20 °C

    Where the desert meets the sea - Paracas in Peru🐙🌵! Enjoyed some relaxing days at the beautiful beaches of the national parc, spotted the mysterious sand dune signs and went on a crazy boat ride (the driver was a real suicidal maniac 😵) to the nearby islands to spot seals & penguins. Glad I survived it just with soaked clothes!Read more

    Peruvian desert adventure

    Huacachina - an oasis in the Peruvian desert...felt like put in my childhood favourite game “Dune“... sand everywhere, even your drinks get a bit more crunchy 😉

    Happy new year in Machu Picchu

    January 1 in Peru ⋅ ☁️ 14 °C

    Started on new year's eve at 4:30am the climb from our small mountain village to world famous Inka site Machu Picchu (meaning big mountain in Quechua) and it's nearby mountain...no sleep due to hotel next to main party square, but highly motivated 😜

    Climbed 3900 stairs and walked my feet off, but it paid off, this city is just incredible! Amazing views 😃!

    And I finally did also make friends with Lamas, not only Alpacas!!!

    Jungle trekking to Machu Picchu

    December 31, 2019 in Peru ⋅ ☁️ 15 °C

    Thought the Amazonian jungle was not enough 😜, so went after Christmas on a 4 day adventure trek through another jungle to famous Machu Picchu...biking, rafting, zip lining, all fun stuff included 😁...and with an awesome group like I had much more!

    Though never received so many mosquito bites on one day like there ever in my life before, but no worries I am feeling good 😃!Read more

    Amazonas jungle adventure

    December 26, 2019 in Peru ⋅ ☁️ 29 °C

    Celebrated all Christmas days in the Amazonian jungle in a lodge next to Puerto Maldonado in Peru 🎅...felt so unreal in this environment (33 degrees, masses of mossies and every day a new visitor in my room 😜, e.g. spider, giant grasshopper).

    Was a real adventure stay with canope bridges & zip lining 50m high in the trees, cayaking on Cayman filled rivers & night tours in the national park next to it. I tried fishing 1st time in my life and catched two Piranhas & not hurting myself 😁. Additionally, could spot apes, lizards, caymans, tarantulas, parrots, giant ants, sloth and many more.

    At the beginning after city jungle Cusco high in the mountains, this environment seemed so completely different, like another world, nearly hostile....But after a few days I got into the groove, humans are so adaptable (felt like Arnold in Predator 😁)....only the moosies I could still not tolerate 😉. Will not be my last jungle visit in my life!

    Rainbow Mountain - conquered

    December 23, 2019 in Peru ⋅ 🌧 2 °C

    Arrived in the former capital of the Inca empire Cusco and hiked up to Montana Winikunka (so called Rainbow Mountain due to it's 7 different sediment colors, another one in the 5000+ club). Awesome views 😃!

    This time I had no health issues, pure pleasure and met also two new fluffy friends - such a sweet couple 😄!Read more

    Lima - surprisingly relaxed

    December 18, 2019 in Peru ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Had real relaxed days in Lima with beach, party and lots of ceviche (raw fish, local favourite, can eat it every day and time 😝), but have to admit I stayed most of the time in Miraflores, the expact district. Other parts of the city are a bit different 😜.
