On the 2nd of September, the day after Gab left back to Canada, I had to start my trip over to the east coast to Rio de Janeiro in order to meet Matthias (a friend from my university in Munich) there on the 6th. This meant taking a series of buses, cars and planes because […]Read more "From the West coast to the East coast in 4 days"
We spent another two days in the city that we had already given up on, but this time it presented itself to us in a totally different fashion. We did not set out to visit the city as such but rather spent our time like it’s habitants; enjoying good food and drinks and just hanging […]Read more "Our last stop together; Lima, Peru"

In Nazca we decided that we would rather invest the 100€ or so that a 40 minute flight over the lines would cost in something else and only did a tour to some of the viewtowers. Nobody really knows what the purpose of these hundreds of lines and figures on the desert floor really was. […]Read more "Nazca, Peru"
