Discovering Lima

I also had only 2 nights in Lima but it was alright to get to know some of the important turistic spots and get some nice food. I started the day doing one of the free city walking tours. The meeting point is also in the Miraflores neighbourhood where I and most of the visitors…

One day in Cusco

I had only one day in the City of Cusco but this is enough to get a climpse of the town. More days are only required if you would like to do some further tours outside of town (and there are plenty like the sacred valley tour and more). If you just want to walk…

Feeling the energy of Machu Picchu

First stop Aguas Calientes The next morning right after arriving in Peru I took the PeruRail to Aguas Calientes. Beforehand I didn´t know that there were other options to go there – for a quite more reasonable price. But now it was too late and I took the train (Dome – I went back with…

Downsides of travelling

I always try to write in a honest way, so it is also time to recognize that there might be a day, you don´t feel happy. Where you feel everything is too much, that you have no energy left and you feel lonley. I ended up crying in the middle of the airport in Cusco….

San Pedro de Atacama

Entering a new world The trip to San Pedro de Atacama and the dessert was just amazing. Everyone always said Atacama would be beautiful and I couldn´t really get it till I went there myself. I did three different tours and it was one of the greatest experiences of my trip. Different to whatever I…

Valparaíso and the beach

Once you are in Santiago, the coast is only an hour and a half away. I went there for the day visiting the coastal town of Vinas de Mar y Valparaíso. Vinas is a small town, the houses are basically situated on the mountain side with beach view, specially at the part of Renac, the…

Discovering Santiago de Chile and the city´s yoga culture

Arriving in Chile Arriving in Santiago was different to the other places as I already knew people there. Like in Valledupar my focus wasn´t to run from one sightseeing spot to another but spend time with friends. So basically apart from things I saw from the taxi I didn´t see that much of the city…

Guayaquil – last stop in Ecuador

Before flying to Chile I had some days ins Guayaquil. The city is situated nicely close to the river and even though it has about 2.5 MM inhabitants you don´t feel that you are in a big city. The bus terminl and the airport are only 20 minutes away by bus and you can walk…

Ecuador´s pacific coast

I stayed the whole week in Olon and took some holidays from all the travelling. I didn´t do anything from the things I planned to do here but as it was out of range of making things possible (so far I cannot influence the weather – I can only do my best that the weather…

Crossing Ecuador : Jungle, mountains and the coast

The Amazon Taking advantage of Quito being quite central to everywhere in Ecuador my next trip (bus from the Quito Southern bus terminal) was to Tena which is a small city in the Napo province in the Amazon. The Napo is a river which later becomes part of the Amazonas so I wouln´t want to…
