Hello World
Beach hopping in Kuta Lombok
November 16, 2015

You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty. Mahatma Ghandi If you expect the world to be fair with you because you are fair, you are fooling yourself. That’s like expecting the lion not to eat you […]

The toughest volcano trek in Indonesia
November 2, 2015

Cookies? Tea or coffee? It was only 2am and pitch black when the tour guide approached my tent to wake me up. I had been freezing all night and had barely slept. Hell, yeah! I could use all the caffeine and sugar I could get my dirty hands on in order to summit Mt Rinjani. […]

Gili Island Hopping
October 24, 2015

The Gili Islands are an archipelago of three small Indonesian islands, Gili Air, Gili Meno and Gili Trawangan, that are located between Bali and Lombok. They are famous for their white-sand beaches and palm trees, and there isn’t any motorised transport which adds to their unique appeal. I somehow figured that the Gilis were to become […]

Living the good life in Bali
October 13, 2015

How is Bali? Well… After finally synchronizing her freelance/baby and my backpacker schedule, I had found a quiet moment to chat with my bestie Alejandra, who successfully juggles work as a designer, blogger and independent single mom. After having only spent a few days on the most developed Indonesian island, I still felt overwhelmed by […]

Into the White in Sumatra
September 25, 2015

Fasten your seat belt. The life west is stored under your seat. And just in case you carry illegal substances, you risk death penalty. Continent #2, yay! 17.500 islands in Indonesia, just waiting for me to explore them. No way I am leaving the fourth most populous country on earth any time soon. Let´s escape the big-city-smoke […]

My days in dear Chilaweni
August 26, 2015

Cock-a-doodle-doo! A new day has started in Chilaweni, Malawi, at least for the chickens and the goats in our backyard. Some women are chatting while pumping water at the nearby well, where we also fetch our drinking water from. What time is it? 5am. Yeah, at least another hour of sleep for me! Andrrreeeeea!!! Tomatoes! Has the […]

Mozambique is different
July 1, 2015

After 100 days overland in Southern Africa on my own and just on time for my birthday, one of my best friends has joined me for two weeks on my RTW trip. My adventures on public transport in Mozambique had taken their toll, so I was especially excited about picking Nuria up at the airport in Dar es […]

Northern Mozambique, you have to earn it
June 23, 2015

Nobody said crossing Southern Africa overland was going to be easy I have heard traveling in Northern Mozambique is slow so that Tuesday morning on Likoma Island I get up at 6 a.m.  in order to catch an early boat. My first stop today on the way to Mozambique Island will be Cóbuè, the Mozambican border post. I can […]

In the Warm Heart of Africa
June 17, 2015

Worry does nothing but steal your joy and keep you very busy doing nothing. I have been traveling across Southern Africa for three months now. Country by country, my journey has led me deeper into “real” Africa and after each border crossing it felt like the locals have became even more welcoming. All along the […]
