Singapore City Guide

Singapore view

We left Germany to South East Asia and our first stop was Singapore. To be honest, I didn’t expect too much from this city that is called ‘Asias Switzerland’. So far we have been told that Singapore is supposed to be clean, big and expensive. Most backpackers skip it or stay only for a short stopover. We have more reason to stay: My colleague and friend just moved there and we kind of invited ourselves over 🙂 For the first…

Greece – Sailing Trip

  How it all began What do you give you dad on his 60th birthday, when he basically can afford everything material? Time! Time with his children. Because after all, it is the quality time with lovely people that everybody remembers a long time and which intensifies the bonding between parents and kids – even if the kids are already adults. One week of quality time with our dad. Thinking about the right destination and a decent action factor (…

Turmeric Salmon Curry

Turmeric Salmon Curry

Indian Curry with salmon and spinach Sorry … it’s curry time again! But there are soooo many different types of curry that I won’t be running out of new recipes to try. I spent only about 6 days in India but I quickly figured out there are only two ways to feel about this country. You either love it the minute you leave the airpot and smell this distinctive Indian smell or you absolutely hate it. Well … I chose…

Bolivia – Salar de Uyuni

They are all funny, extraordinary, unexpected and exiting adventures that make a trip unforgettable. And these are the ones who make a traveler a storyteller. Every traveler has a few stories which he or she particularly likes to tell. For Fred, Maren and me our tour through the salt desert of Bolivia is definitely one of these stories. In the days before, we had already visited the city of La Paz, drove down the popular Death Road on mountain bikes and…

Dulce de Leche – Alfajores

Alfajores

A South American signature treat! Dulce de leche – that’s one of those words that makes me think about Latin America in an instant. It’s the South-Americans Nutella! You can get it in Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Paraguay and Brazil and everywhere it’s slightly different. Basically Dulce de leche is a caramel spread that you can use for pretty much everything. You can spread it on your bread, fill any pastry or … just make some Alfajores! We even had empanadas…

Fruity Thai Curry

What is it about Curry? A couple of years ago (to be honest about 10 years) Fred and I were sitting in Kao San Road Bangkok. We were about 3 weeks into our first backpacking trip and it was our first time ever in Asia. Last years all inclusive holiday on a Greek island has not really been a success. But that might be another story. Anyways… there we were. It was ten o’clock in the morning, it was steaming…

Vietnam and Cambodia

When strangers become friends: Discovering Vietnam and Cambodia in a group > „I quit!“ > „Fuck …“ My still boss and I were sitting in the city center of Frankfurt having lunch when I handed him the news. Over the past three years, we had mastered many ups and downs in our job together, but now it was time for me to go my own way. As the news spread slowly in the company, I dedicated my entire attention to my…

About a year ago we…

Brasilien Part III

Rio de Janeiro – Lappa – Santa Teresa – Copacabana – Niteroi Nach 10 Tagen in Rio de Janeiro sitzen wir jetzt im Bus nach São Paulo. Zum ersten Mal auf unserer Reise ist es uns richtig schwer gefallen Abschied zu nehmen. Vielleicht sind wir etwas reisemüde geworden, vielleicht hätten wir aber auch einfach die besten Gastgeber der Welt in einer unglaublich tollen Stadt. Nur mit Widerwillen haben wir heute unsere Rucksäcke gepackt. In den letzten Tagen haben wir die…

Chile Part III

 Osterinsel – Rapa Nui Wochenlang haben wir Flüge gecheckt, Unterkünfte verglichen und festgestellt, dass es eigentlich zu teuer ist. Dann kam ein Tag in Kolumbien, Isa hat gerade ihre Flüge gebucht und Fred schaute aus Gewohnheit noch mal nach Flugpreisen. So niedrig war der Preis noch nie… 2 Minuten später haben wir gebucht. Wir werden die Karwoche also auf der Osterinsel verbringen! In der Zwischenzeit haben wir viel erlebt, fünf weitere Länder bereist, aber unser ‘Ausflug’ auf die Osterinsel ist…
