+++ Lago de Titicaca +++

By on Tuesday October 30th, 2018

Getting out of Cusco, means a lot of traffic. I’m pretty happy once I pass by the airport and leave the city behind me. The terrain I now have in front of me is way easier than what I had to cycle through most of my time in Peru….

+++ last night in Cusco +++

By on Saturday October 6th, 2018

I had the crazy idea to only stay two more nights in Cusco after my hike to Macchu Picchu. However the day after my return from the famous Inca site I was barely able to walk. Especially going down stairs or steep streets was causing immense pain in my…

By on Monday October 1st, 2018

Before I reached Cusco I had already purchased my ticket for Macchu Picchu for the 27th of September. Since I arrived on the evening of the 25th I already had to leave the next day towards Aguas Calientes (also known as Machhu Picchu Pueplo) the next day. My original…

By on Friday August 24th, 2018

From Jaen where I did my last update it went straight up into higher terrain again. And on that way I’ve experienced some great hospitality. It was already late when I reached the little town of Santo Domingo de Capilla and I hadn’t yet spotted a perfect place to…

+++ finally in Peru +++

By on Friday August 17th, 2018

From Vilcabamba in Ecuador I had to do again a lot of climbing till I reached the border of Peru. Although I’m now at less than 750m altitude it never goes down straight in the Andes. Even on the “easy” days I collect more than 1000m of elevation gain…

+++ final days in Ecuador +++

By on Monday August 13th, 2018

Three days ago I reached Vilcabamba – a cute little town in the south of Ecuador surrounded by impressing mountain tops. I decided to stay a little bit outside of the village in the Hostal Izhcayluma. It’s run by Germans and is just perfect to relax and hang around…

+++ Camping on Chimborazo at 4850m +++

By on Friday August 3rd, 2018

A trip to Ecuador is not complete without a visit of its highest volcano Chimborazo. On the top (at 6286m) you’re actually the closest you can get to the sun while still standing on planet earth. This is due to its location near to the equator.

I didn’t get that…
