Off the beaten track

Bolivia – a visual journey

•••
When you think of Bolivia you might think of a third-world country with run-down places and cities, but what I experienced there was pure beauty and absolutely stunning nature: endless salt flats, colorful lakes, hot springs, dynamite explosions and the most dangerous road in the world. Bolivia really got me, that´s why  I want to provide you with a little b[...]

Grander than Grand Canyon

•••
I've seen some pretty cool and crazy sights over the years but really nothing compares to Bryce Canyon national park in good old Utah USA. Time for a physical geography lesson on this travel blog; interestingly you can’t really use the word “canyon” to describe Bryce because it is carved by freeze-thaw cycles, not a river (this travelette is a geography g[...]

Day Hikin' in Oakland, California

•••
I'm afraid I've been spending entirely too much time in the city lately. I love living in Oakland and I'm super focused on my school work right now, but these last few week I've started to feel a bit of urban cabin fever.

As it turned out the bi-monthly half moon party was happening that night so together with a few others I went to check it out. Not the classiest of p[...]

Darjeeling: living in the clouds

•••
Have you ever wondered what life would be like if it rained every day? Probably not. You probably never really got to that level of boredom. Today I, on the other hand, have played the scenario through in my head and decided that that would suck a fair bit. We got to Darjeeling 3 days ago expecting romantic landscapes, Himalayan views and chilled-out cafes [...]
