Costa Rica

  Für viele ein absolutes Traumparadies, so hat es für uns leider nur zu einem Kurzaufenthalt gereicht. So unglaublich viel Zeit sollten wir eigentlich haben. Eigentlich. Dennoch hatten wir für die “Schweiz von Zentralamerika” nur knappe 3 Wochen. Dank des...
Tula-

Tula-

When we finally left San Juan Teotihuacan, we didn’t go far. Just a short drive away is the archeological site of Tula in the town of Tula de Allende. It is often overlooked, because Teotihuacan is so popular. But we wanted to take the time to look at the Toltec...
So… Suriname!

So… Suriname!

Suriname, Suriname… where exactly is that? Near Vietnam? Nope. Next door to Ghana? Errr, no. It’s on the north coast of South America, above Brazil, snuggled comfortably between French Guiana and Guyana. It’s in the northern Amazon basin, so it’s hot, humid and – at...
Our weekend with Adonis (Costa Rica)

Our weekend with Adonis (Costa Rica)

Costa Rica Some people seem to love it and others tend to bull run through it.  It’s expensive, over toured, and in my mind, overrated.   For us, bull running was our only thought as we had other places we were more interested in.  We both had spent time in Costa Rica...

Santa Elena to Santa Fe de Antioquia

Santa Elena to Santa Fe de Antioquia

The drive from Santa Elena to Santa Fe de Antioquia is 76 km from which 21 km is just the dropdown to Medellin. The dropdown is 1,100 metres from 2,600 m to 1,500 on a steep swirling road. For whatever reasons the GPS (Garmin loaded with Open Street Maps) decided to...
The wild Animal side of Costa Rica

The wild Animal side of Costa Rica

Costa Rica was the perfect country to find oodles of animals.  Whether we were camping on the beach or deep in the jungle we would hear or see wild animals all around us.  Only once did a raccoon try to rob us, but a little american boy played vigilante for us.  Costa...
