South America

Unexpectedly we’ve headed to South America after changing our route plans for the hundredth time. After visiting Hawaii we decided to change course because summer a.k.a. high season in the USA didn’t sound too appealing. A good choice, we immediately feel right at home in our first country Colombia... 

Our absolute top of the list destination was next: the Galápagos Islands. Not exactly a budget destination, but with our money saving experience we managed with a reasonably daily budget ;-)

From Galápagos we flew back to Quito for an adventure through the mainland of Ecuador...

Because the rest of our savings had shrunk rapidly the last few months we now need to discuss which countries are an absolute must, because the end is coming closer... 

Explore our destinations...


Four weeks in this absolutely breathtaking country isn’t enough... by far! We’ve seen so much beauty in the small part of Colombia we explored, we are totally convinced we’ll be back. Colourful houses in cute colonial villages filled super friendly people not to mention the mountains... green... übergreen!


What a dream... we did not expect to ever be on the Galápagos because of the expenses. After visiting the three largest islands without any tours we’ve discovered Galápagos is actually an excellent budget destination, you just have to know where to look...

Coming soon: Ecuador

Following: Peru
