A special thanks to special people

If you ask people what traveling is all about, you will get a different answer every time. Soul searching, immersing yourself in other cultures, creating memories, leaving your comfortzone, sampling new cuisines, learning to be on your own, staying within budget, you name it.

Busting kilometers in the Bolivian Buses

“I have never seen such utter disregard for human life”. This was the first thing we read when trying to prepare ourselves for bus rides in Bolivia. That remark was followed by pages of examples of (severe) accidents, speeding or flat out drunk drivers and not to mention the poor state of the busses.

Traveling means saying goodbye. A lot.

A small journey through our route in South America (Part 1)

Although I was the one who convinced Dagmar┬áto go on a long trip together, I had no actual idea of where to go. Many countries appealed to me while others did not. The plan of going traveling didn’t come out of the blue and ever since we discussed it for the first time, when we were still studying, we thought of South America. Keep on reading!
