June 26, 2015

So after having spent some time in Cuzco it was time for a little change, considering that Cuzco is a fairly large city I was set on finding something nice and quiet which as it turned out was Pisac. I got there early in the day after about an hour long bus ride, and it […]

Peru – Cusco – somewhat dangerous and cold

May 13, 2015

Cusco, a large city up high in the mountains at an altitude of about 3600m, fascinating and dangerous at the same time with nights that are as cold as most winters back home. I got there by plane, and fortunately had arranged a pick up to my hotel as right outside the airport there are […]

Peru – Aguas Calientes – Machu Picchu

May 6, 2015

First off to get that off the table, Machu Picchu itself is great! Aguas Calientes on the other hand is nothing other than a tourist trap, as there is nothing around, and no possibility to go anywhere else once you are there, be aware that prices for just about anything are 1.5 – 3 times […]

Travelling ? Part 2

May 2, 2015

So following my moral dilemma whether or not to continue my travels, I am happy to report that I will indeed go on. There are a number of reasons, first and foremost, indeed there is poverty all over the world, and I won’t be able to change that by myself and it’s not bound to […]

Peru – Iquitos – Wonderfully weird place

April 28, 2015

So now that a few weeks have passed since I left Iquitos, it’s time to look back. Iquitos is a wonderfully weird town, and hard to describe as it’s filled with such contrasts that it’s hard to either pin it down to positive or negative or just plain crazy, which probably sums it up best, […]

Peru – Tapiche Jungle Reserve

April 14, 2015

Following a more or less chaotic week in Iquitos, I finally headed out to the Tapiche Reserve (www.tapichejungle.com) on a Monday at 1 pm, with Kat a volunteer from the Green Track Hostel (which has the same owner as the Tapiche Reserve).  Normally one leaves in the morning by bus to Nauta and then by […]

Costa Rica – a few concluding thoughts

March 31, 2015

So it has been a few days since I left Costa Rica, and I figured it was time for a few concluding thoughts! Costa Rica as a whole is one hell of a charming country, it has been running on only renewable energy for all of 2015, which granted has only been 3 months, but […]

Costa Rica – Puerto Viejo & Manzanillo

March 29, 2015

Following a few days in Jaco, I decided it was time for a change in scenery and hopefully a slightly less touristy destination, which as it turned out is the south of the Costa Rican Caribbean Coast. I drove straight to Puerto Viejo, and had a nice little dinner and a quiet first night there. […]

Costa Rica – Manuel Antonio & Jaco

March 29, 2015

I set out around 10 in the morning, and other than knowing that I’d head down to the pacific coast again, I had not real plan or idea as to where to go, so first I drove down to Puntarenas. The drive down the mountain was actually quite fun, and for the most part was […]
