The Power of Color – Street art around the world Part II: Valparaíso, Chile

I am fascinated by streetart. I am fascinated by the fact that there are people out there who can paint the most beautiful paintings, sometimes in the matter of minutes, with a message that makes all of the spectators think. I am fascinated by the cities that are so colorful that you don’t even know where to look first. And on top of that, those cities don’t even know how picturesque they are.

My post today introduces you to one of the cities I’ve known about for so long and I always wanted to visit because of it’s colorful appearance. I finally made it there in December 2016 (find my blogposts about Chile here and here) and because the street art was just too beautiful not to share, I’ll do it here now.

Photo Friday: Winter wonderland

Winter definitely arrived, I think we’ve all heard on Social Media. I am one of those annoying people who share all the winter wonderland shots on Instagram, Snapchat and/or Facebook. But it’s just too beautiful, isn’t it? See for yourself, here’s my collection of my favourite Winterwonderland shots I took this winter

The precious time away from phones, laptops & co: A new year’s resolution

Whenever a new year is just around the corner (or has just started), people plan on changing their lives completely. I myself don’t really believe in making big resolutions  in the beginning of a new year because why do you need a specific date to change what you don’t like about your life? But then again, if it helps…

Anyways, that’s not the topic of this article. It’s more what people plan to change this year. The other day I listened to the radio here in Munich and I heard, that most of the younger people that were asked plan on relaxing more, having more time for themselves and not staring at their phone screen 24/7 anymore.

Namibia: “Africa for cowards”

In 2012 my parents took me on a trip, I will never forget – to Namibia. I never really thought about Namibia as a country I wanted to go, South Africa was always first on my to-see-list in Africa, but since I rarely say no to any type of trips I found myself on a flight to Namibia. And I’m telling you, it should be on your list for sure! Not only because it’s Africa for cowards (since it’s so much safer than most of the other countries) but also because it has so much to offer. And to prove it to you, here are some of my favorite photos I took during that trip together with some tips.

Photo Friday: Peru

Unfortunately I didn’t have enough time to see a lot of Peru since I’ve only been there for 2 weeks so I decided to just create another Photo Friday post out of my favourite pictures from that time because I wouldn’t do that country justice with the few tipps I could give you! I hope (and definitely believe) that those pictures will make you consider Peru as one of your next travel destinations!

Because pictures say more than a thousand words and on fridays most of us are too tired from the week to read long texts anyways, I decided to start a new category: Photo Friday. I’ll just feed you with pictures from my favourite places all around the world, starting with the one of the most picturesque places I’ve been to during my Around the world Trip – New Zealand. Here’s a little selection:
