Waiting in Guayaquil

We made it to Guayaquil, the city of taking a flight to Galapagos. This was actually the only reason to visit this city, but that doesn’t mean we were planning to wait literally. We had 24 hours in the biggest city of Ecuador so we decided to make the best of it, so here we…

Leaving Peru behind

Hola Amigos, This post is gonna be about our last hours in Peru. Currently I’m, in a hammock in Cuyabeno, which is almost the most northeast part of the country. So imagine how much we are behind. It could have easily be more, but some times I actually like to write my experiences down. Besides…

Peruvian Coast – Trujillo and Huanchaco

After many hikes at high altitude, many times freezing my hands while taking landscape pictures – we finally arrived in warmer regions: The nothern coast of Peru. We made our way to Trujillo by bus from Lima (Linea, 8hrs) during the day, so we arrived just after nightfall. The Plaza de Armas of Trujillo is…

Rushing Huaraz

Detour through Chile

Colca Canyon

Dear friends, It’s time to write about our trip into the Colca Canyon. I tell you, it was hard work, but it was more than worth it and I think it was the nicest thing we did so far. But let’s start at the beginning. The Colca Canyon was this one thing everyone talked about…
