Malta – What I Did In A Week In This Tiny Little Country

From Jordan to Malta

Malta was a small country so I’m going to make this article small. But because it is one of the 100 countries in my life I want to share it with you. And I want to give a little bit of insight into that island. I came to Malta because it was on the way to Paris. So I thought why not stop here for a week and explore its surroundings. And I think it was a great decision for me to do that. I don’t regret it at all and I enjoyed very much my time in Malta. Continue reading “Malta – What I Did In A Week In This Tiny Little Country”

Oman – Off The Beaten Track And Reasons To Visit The Country

Incredible Oman

Why did I travel to Oman? I read about Oman already 2 years ago. Back then, I got some vaccinations and in the doctor’s waiting room I saw photographs of a desert. Later, the doctor told me he took the photographs at Wahiba Sands in Oman. I started to gather more information about Oman, and this year I put this beautiful country on my list. My friend Sven and I traveled for 8 days in Oman and I can assure you it was definitely one of the greatest experience in nearly 5 years of my world travels.

Bogota – My First Impression Of Colombia’s Capital

Welcome to Bogota

To take a flight from Ecuador to here seems to be ridiculously expensive and I don’t even know why. Boyang and I split up while in Ecuador because he wanted to do other things than trekking volcanoes. So we were able to reunite in Colombia.

Quilotoa – More Hiking

I didn’t plan on hiking Quilotoa. But when I met Becs in Quito and she told me how much she loved hiking Quilotoa, I decided last minute to do the same. After doing 2 days Chimborazo and 2 days Cotopaxi, I did on my 5th day Quilotoa.

Chimborazo Or How A Divine Feeling Is Overwhelming Me

Chimborazo

Chimborazo. I like how I go on to say the name repetitively. With my 22 years right now, despite having already been to the Himalayas- it was the trek of my life. Okay, I know my life is short so far.. But so far it really is the trek of my life.

Trekking Chimborazo Continue reading “Chimborazo Or How A Divine Feeling Is Overwhelming Me”
