Visiting the floating islands

PERU | We went on a two day trip to visit the floating island in Puno called Islas Uros. These islands only exists because of the tourism, so you can imagine how touristic and overpriced it was. It was very interesting to see how they build their floating islands and how they live. The night…

Exploring the jungle

Bucket list for Skitouring in Valais

SWITZERLAND | My personal bucket list for this winter is: 1) Wildstrubel You either start in Crans-Montana, cross the Plaine Morte Glacier and go up to the Wildstrubel, then ski down to the Lämmeren hut, cross the Gemmi and go down (by cablecar) to Leukerbad. Or you can do exactly the opposite (see picture above)…

Iceland 🇮🇸

ICELAND | What an impressive, beautiful country. We went to Iceland in April, which means it’s not yet summer (so no kayaking) and winter is over (no ski touring). So it’s the cheapest time to visit Iceland, flights and accommodation is cheap. Apparently the weather in Iceland changes all the time, means you have sunshine,…

Cuba 🇨🇺

CUBA | A personal dream comes true. Visit Cuba now, before it’s too late everybody told me.
