Colombia has two coastlines, the Pacific to the west and the Caribbean to the north-east. Due to lack of time and also some security concern we decided to skip the Pacific and focus on the Caribbean. It turns out this was a fantastic choice! 🙂 We had an amazing time in Cartagena, Santa Marta, Minca... Continue Reading →
On our way by bus from Puno in Peru to La Paz in Bolivia we decided to take a 24h travel break in the small town of Copacabana. Most tourists stop here to visit Isla del Sol, the legendary origin of the Incas. We, however, ended up staying in town only, skipping the island. As... Continue Reading →

Eventually we agreed on Sulawesi since it seemed less touristy than other islands and has a crazy shape on the... Continue Reading →
Before we started our trip we wanted to be as flexible as possible and not plan ahead too much. When we were in the Philippines we therefore looked for cheap flights out of the country and ended up flying to Kota Kinabalu on Borneo. "KK" was a city we had never heard of before but...
