An unforgettable Roadtrip (IV)

Peru After a long and very uncomfortable bus ride and no sleep , I arrived in Puno at 5 am in the morning. From there, I took a boat to the Islas Flotantes de los Uros; the floating island of Uros. The Uros are a people who live on forty-two self-fashioned floating islands in Lake…

Malta – Climber´s Paradise

I am living in Malta for more than five month now and go climbing at least once a week here. Two days ago, I made a small video of a typical climbing day in the Mosta Valley. There are more than 1500 climbs (about 600 fully bolted sport routes) in all parts of Malta, Gozo…

Everyone can do it!

Nearly every time i’m talking about  my travels, someone tells me: I want to do the same when…. You’re so lucky that you’ve got the opportunity to this. I want to do that as well, but. …. How did you afford your travels? Did your parents sponsore you all the time? I can not hear…

An unforgettable Roadtrip (III)

Peru In the early morning hours I could already see the impressing volcanoes surrounding Arequipa. When I arrived, my couchsurfer Hugo picked me up and we stopped on many places to enjoy the beautiful sunset. After he introduced me to his family, we went to a BBQ with some of his friends. They all recommended…

An unforgettable Roadtrip (II)

Blue Fire – Hell on earth

I didn´t know that hell exists on earth- until I saw it. On the Mt Ijen. In Java,Indonesia. I went there with a friend by scooter from Bali. By the way, did you know that Indonesia has three different time zones? We drove up on about 1200 m altitude to the entrance of the Ijen…

The Hammock Boat in the Amazon (I)

Tune your scooter!

The best way to get around in Indonesia is definitely a scooter. The longer you rent it, the cheaper it gets per day. For a month I payed 1€/day, for two weeks 2€/day. Same same, but totally different. So, as soon as you got your scooter, you should “tune” it. This is what you need: A scooter…

Pick ups in Southamerica

Hitchhiking on the back of a Pick up Truck is illegal in Southamerica as well as in Germany. The only difference is, that the people do not really care about that fact. Especially if you´re in the middle of nowhere, and that´s where you are most of the time, when you are traveling  in the…

Hongkong – The City of Contrasts

Hongkong. I didn´t know anything about this city except the fact that they can use Google and China can´t. Honestly it was not even part of my planned trip. When you book an around-the-world-ticket you usually can only flight in one direction and when you look on the map, Hong-Kong is geographically “behind” Denpasar (Bali,Indonesia)…

Is that real?

Yes. These pictures were taken by me while traveling in Indonesia. This country is the biggest archipelago of the world with, regarding to LAPAN,  totally 18,307 islands; 8,844 of them have been named. But to see this small magical island you have to zoom in a little bit in google.maps . It´s part of an unspoiled national park 5 miles…
