Brazil 2015

February 20th, 2016|Brazil, South America|

I arrived in Salvador de Bahia on the first ever nomad cruise from Spain. I stayed in lively Salvador for 2 weeks, then moved to beautiful Florianopolis for another week and spent the last week in exciting Rio. Salvador I stayed in the simple but very friendly Porto Salvador hotel in Barra, right by the [...]

Argentina 2015/2016

February 9th, 2016|Argentina, South America|

My first visit to Argentina was in 2004 (only in Dutch). I was a backpacker then, doing the ‘touristy thing’. This time I returned as a digital nomad, to live in Buenos Aires for a month and learn to dance tango. I can summarize my month in 4 words: walk, work, eat and tango.   [...]

Colombia (1995 + 2008)

February 24th, 2011|Colombia|

A Country of Carnivores and Carnival... Unfortunately this lovely country still struggles with it's bad image. Thankfully the humorous Colombians are battling this image. When you arrive at Bogota airport, you'll see posters advertising "The only risk is not wanting to leave..." And it's true! This not-so-touristy country has everything you could wish for! Colombians [...]

Galapagos Islands, Ecuador (2009)

February 24th, 2011|Ecuador, Galapagos Islands, South America|

Living history The first time I visited Ecuador, I did not have enough money to visit the Galapagos islands, 972 km west of the mainland, in the Pacific Ocean. I am glad I came back a few years later, to discover this wildlife paradise, where Darwin developed his famous evolution theory. Words do not suffice, [...]

Peru en Bolivia

September 21st, 2004|South America|

Een explosie van kleur Cocablaadjes kauwende indianen, door zon en berglucht getekende gezichten waarvan de leeftijd moeilijk te raden valt, kinderen met snottebellen aan hun vieze neusjes, kleurrijke kleding en out-of-place lijkende bolhoeden. Als ik nu terugdenk aan mijn reis door de Andes landen Peru en Bolivia, is het eerste dat me te binnen schiet [...]
