    In the center of a vulcano

    December 16, 2017 in Ecuador ⋅ ☀️ 13 °C

    After we cured ourselves by resting for 4 days, we went to Quilotoa, a little village high up in the mountains. But it's not just any mountain... It's a vulcano, filled with blueish, greenish clear water.
    After we did the big loop (12km) on the mountain, we went down and rented a kayak and paddled to the center of the volcano.

    Mindo, hi and bye...

    December 11, 2017 in Ecuador ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Mindo seems to be a nice little village.
    You can do all kinds of things here.
    Climbing waterfalls, tubing, zip-lining,... And many more.
    But ,... unfortunately we both became ill. Had different symptoms and so we couldn't do any of those things.
    What to do? Well we went straight back to Quito, cause the nearest doc is there.

    Hola Ecuador, hola Quito

    December 4, 2017 in Ecuador ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Another big city. It's 60km long and 8km wide. Respect for that. Even on the height of 4000m we couldn't see the beginning nor the end of this wide stretched city.
    Anyway, the city is OK, but the mountain view is OP.
    But for real Quito... How the fck does your bus system work. Nobody seems to know, not even the ticket counter could help us out.

    Punta Gallinas - end of the world

    November 29, 2017 in Colombia ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    It truly felt like driving to the end of the world.
    After who knows how many hours in a 4x4 jeep and boat, we arrived in Bahia Hondita, a well built hostel.
    On the first day they showed us all the spectacular places (see pics).
    On the second day we just took our 5L water bottle and
    ... started walking, by foot, the 2 of us, alone, under the cloudless sky, by crazy hot sun...
    So yea, we survived a 13km trip trough the desert and YEA, we enjoyed every part of it.

    Cabo de la Vela - beach time

    November 28, 2017 in Colombia ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    From Santa Marta, to Riohacha and 2 days later we are here, in Cabo de la Vela.
    Lying at the beach, sleeping in hammocks and wind-surfing on the flat warm water.
    What else could a man wish for? 😉

    The only thing that is annoying are the flies here. Sooo many flies and when we try to eat, they seem to multiply.
    But anyway, it's amazing here.

    And when you are up early (4:30 am) you can see a sky full of stars, even the milky way. Never saw anything like it 😍

    Lost city, day 3 & 4

    November 24, 2017 in Colombia ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    Day 3:
    Wake up at 5:00, again,
    Start walking at 6:30, again,
    Reached the lost city, enjoy the view for some hours, listen to some guides and go back to the next camp.
    Hurry up, cause rain is coming, again.
    Well, at least we already are wet from al the sweat, that's pouring down our faces, armpits and backs. So the rain is more like a shower now 😅
    Right before the camp we had to go through an angry river. Was so deep, could barely keep my head out.

    Day 4:
    Last night we chilled and now again, are on the track @ 6:30.
    Sweatting into our already dirty and smelly clothes. Rivers to cross, slippery stones to overcome, mud and clay hindering us to walk and there is the exhaust. At least we could swim again.
    Finally, we are back. Our group was the best, like a little family. 2 singing french girls, a critical fast walking Danish chica, our spiritual clever translator and of course André & me. We will remember this little family.

    La Ciudad Perdida - día uno y dos

    November 21, 2017 in Colombia ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    The adventure begins.
    First obstacle: little river. Already 4 shoes got wet.
    Ines you were unlucky, but damn André, I had high hopes for you!

    Well we made it up and then down again, crossed more obstacles and... We went swimming (for 10min) with a big smile. Cause it was a natural pool.
    OK, the smile was gone after the rain hit us while we got stuck in clay ground. But anyway, dirty as we were, we made it to the first camp.

    Day two:
    Same as day one, but more and bigger obstacles, better and higher landscape views, longer and harder rain⛆.
    Again, the reward was amazing.
    The natural pool in the river had a spot where we could jump into it from 7m hight. ¡Best pool ever!
    After meal we smoked a lucky strike with menthol flavor and watched the lightnings ☇ in the clear sky.
