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 ánd our very first experience of volunteering during this worldtrip!

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 EVER because of the expenses. But 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...


Oh Ecuador, you small country on the equator, you’re full of surprises. Gorgeous beaches on the west to impressive Amazonian rainforests in the east. In between, sweet people and a beautiful culture. We didn’t just travel around, we also got the opportunity to do some voluntary work for a month right on the beach... 

Next: Peru

Planned: Bolivia
