    March 27, 2015 in Colombia ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Getting ready in the morning for our last road trip. North to Cali, through the endless sugarcane fields of the Cauca valley and then with another bus up to the extraordinarily beautiful coffee region and then crossing the mighty La linea pass down to the valley of the Magdalena river, where the relaxing city of Ibague and isa's parents anxiously await us. the beauty and variety of the Colombian landscape recompensate for the fact that traveling across land always takes longer than planned, due to still poor road conditions and heavy traffic...we were calculating 7-9 hours...and needed 11! well, of course that doesn't matter at all, when your Family is waiting for you at the end of the ride! almost one week of getting pampered, relax, visiting family and friends followed, time for what had been missing for months: sit back, reflect and enjoy your own memories of what we had seen, experienced and learned. and also to start asking yourself, what did the trip do with you, what had changed in your way of seeing the world and yourself in it...Read more

    Luxus-Bus von Bogota nach Salento

    June 19, 2018 in Colombia ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Nach ein paar Tagen ausruhen und etwas an die Höhenluft gewöhnen (Kolumbiens Hauptstadt liegt auf 2640m Höhe) fahren wir mit einem sehr gut ausgestatteten und bequemen Reisebus nach Salento. Wir sind erstaunt, wie modern hier alles ist. Der Busbahnhof gleicht einem guten deutschen Großstadt-Bahnhof und wir finden ganz leicht den richtigen Schalter für den Fahrkartenkauf. Ab gehts durch eine Art Gate zum Bus mit Wifi, Bildschirm an jedem Platz, jede Menge Beinfreiheit und ganz wichtig eine Toilette an Board😀. Leider vertrage ich die vielen Kurve durch die Berge nicht so gut und bin froh, als wir nach ca. 9h Fahrt in Armenia ankommen. Von dort aus ist es noch eine halbe Stunde mit dem lokalen Minibus nach Salento.Read more

    Day 246: Vamos Nairo!

    September 16, 2016 in Colombia ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    33 degrees. Thats what it said when we started in the morning. And during the day it ony became warmer. We started to climb bathing in sweat. But the road climbed slowely and steadily. So it wasn't to hard. Soon we made it to the town. And that's were the fun started.

    Cars started honking and people cheering. Vamos Nairo! Is the most heared sentence. Refering to the Colombian star professional cyclist Nairo Quintana. We had motors and cars driving up to us and asking where we were going. After hearing Medellín they said we were crazy. After telling were we started people just became speechless. It was a nice distraction of the shitty bussy road and before we knew it we made it to the center and found a cheap hotel. Tomorow we will have to climb again.
