Himalaya Part II – Faraway, So Close!

Tag 4 – Time to say farewell: from Tadapani (2647m) to Chomrong (2130m) I already had to say goodbye to Andrea and Babu, the night before. Those two had to start their trek before sunrise, to be able to reach Kathmandu on the same day. Of course, Andrea didn’t walk away without leaving a farewell. […]

Himalaya Part I – Stair Run Is Not Always Fun

The Himalaya-Poon Hill-Panorama-View Let’s plunge in the Alpine World There was not much time to acclimatize to the “real” world after the “monastery week”.

Including a TV, where they showed the new Bollywood Blockbuster “Sultan” (must have been an illegal copy). What a movie! 😀 An Indian wrestler wins a Olympic gold medal, wins the heart of his goddess […]

The innovative and highly modern El Salvador does it virtual via computer. But one thing at a time: I traveled from the jungle of Lanquin to Antigua last week. A small town close […]

First night in Reykjavik

First night in Reykjavik and I had a rude awaking by the alarm clock. With a kind of a hangover, indeed. Actually it should have been a cozy evening. After arriving at the hostel yesterday, I checked out the surroundings, picked a bed in my 14p dorm, and got a seat in the lobby. The plan […]
