Photo Challenge in April: Water. 5 continents flow into 5 stories!
“Show me your water!”, is what Carolin Hinz proclaims on her travel blog “Esel Unterwegs” (Travelling Donkey), inviting us to participate in a collection of travel articles showing what experiences we have had in or around “water”. Even while I am reading hers, my mind starts wandering off to all those particular travel memories concerning water. I […]
Travel Highlights 2013: From A like Andalucia to Z like Zollverein
Travelling and immersing oneself in foreign cultures: A daunting thought to some, while others consider it second nature.

Hot Moon Valley & Cool Stargazing in the Atacama Desert, Chile
“Death Valley, Moon Valley” … ? It might not sound very enticing. Or does it? For me, a hike through Death Valley and the “canyon of salt” as well as the sunset over Moon Valley is one of the best recommendations of things to do while exploring the Atcama Desert.
