    We´ve come pretty far…

    After the time in the Cavazza I went on a little bit of a discovery tour on my own. I had heard of a garden more in the interior of the island. I really wanted to see it. Elohim had talked about the fact that he would like to start a garden project but would need several people. Since the situation with the virus had come to a head in the whole time and it was clear that we were probably best off here on the island at the moment, I thought a garden could be fun. No sooner said than done, I walked there. On the way I met…

    No trousers, no problem!

    True to this motto we started the time on Gavdos exuberant and textile-free. However, we soon found out that we had to deal with some special problems, also and maybe even especially here. But first the fun part. We arrived at Gavdos in a good mood after having already spent almost two weeks on Crete (more on this in another article). We liked the spirit of the little hippie island right from the start. The cars driving around have no or arbitrarily attached license plates. The taverns and the minimarket were still in relaxed hibernation and time just seemed to tick differently here. Lived deceleration… Just what we were looking…

    A very special day on Santorini

    I do not want to write too much about Santorini, as there are endless travel reports about this island…I was a little sceptical at first, but I wanted to experience something special for my approaching birthday and Martin was on fire to discover the volcanic island. In a stormy night we reached the island Santorini by ferry from Kos via Karpathos (where we also had a night stay).What many people don’t know, the characteristic picture with the blue domed churches and the whitewashed houses that many of Greece in general have, is mainly due to the pictures of the old fishing villages Oia, Perivolas and Fira on Santorini. There are…

    Island fever

    After the exciting time in Istanbul we wanted to translate to the Greek island of Kos. Because of the tense situation with the free living dogs in Turkey and the, but quite uncomfortable, temperatures, a small sunny island in the south of Europe was a promising alternative to our wintering plans in Turkey. We crossed from Bodrum with the ferry, which can transport a van of the size of Don Busso. We noticed that we entered the EU again after only a few moments. Tired, because we got up early and such an event, like a ferry trip, but also always consumes a lot of energy, we looked for a…

    Stranded in paradise

    Due to current events, here are some very recent news from us, fresh and fluffy like the rolls from the baker (which fortunately you are served ALWAYS every morning) Even we can’t help noticing that something is happening out there in the big wide world, which we were able to get to know and love even better through our journey. And this is something that frightens many people. So much fear that they become aggressive and very stupid or show themselves from their ugliest side and leave us (and fortunately also hundreds of thousands of others who don’t turn the wheel!) shaking their heads. A virus has the world firmly…

    Istanbul (Not Constantinople)

    Istanbul- the pearl on the Bosporus, the place where Europe and Asia meet. Definitely a milestone on our journey and a very special destination for both of us. Istanbul was also something special for us because we got another visit from home! So far, these have always been very special and some of the most beautiful moments of the trip. To share its luck, its history and great experiences is something very special and unique… We arrived in Istanbul in the afternoon in our Airbnb apartment. It was really cool and urban furnished. The landlord was super nice, he lives there with his girlfriend. The way there was a real…

    On the way to Istanbul!

    On the way from the coastal region around Antalya to Istanbul our ways led us via Isparta, Kusadasi and Bursa. In Isparta we met some travel friends, the 2 Teachers on Tour, who invited us to their WorkAway over New Year’s Eve. We had so much fun! It was a great experience to meet so many people in one evening and celebrate the turn of the year together. In such moments you miss your loved ones at home very much and the distance is more real than ever. But this is also part of the experience of the trip. After New Year’s Eve came the big surprise. We went skiing…

    Secret Spot in the Turkish mountains

    Isparta, that besides its roses also has a ski resort in Turkey, is located in the southwest of the country. The city of roses, as it is also called, must bloom and smell incredibly beautiful in summer, because there are rose trees everywhere. We wanted to ski (learn to ski) for a few days and were looking for a nice place for the night. The place in the mountains, was between two hills in a valley, which we had all to ourselves. The evening light and the nature were so atmospheric that we became very devout at sunset. In the morning, free-ranging horses grazed near us. To be so close…

    Fears- an old new travel companion

    Today’s contribution will deal with a topic that was and still is very present in our society: fears. On a journey to unknown countries, whether they are just around the corner or on far away continents, you encounter your fears more than once. Usually such a journey already begins with different fears and not always, are they your own. Family and friends are worried in advance and express their concerns about such a supposedly daring endeavor. Also one oneself may have doubts about the correctness of one’s actions, but at least for a very short moment, one is afraid of the own courage. On the journey itself you encounter further…

    Girl´s road trip

    Our first stop was an old trading town, which had its heyday around 800 B.C. The old ruins lay in a dreamlike bay. In front of you the sea, in the back the mountains with snow-covered peaks, in addition bright sunshine. Senta and I roamed through ancient Phaselis and imagined how much life must have been here at that time (okay Senta might be less interested in ancient history, but for her the place smelled very exciting). Even Alexander the Great came to visit more often. A nice elderly gentleman spoke to me in Turkish. Although we had some communication problems, he introduced himself as a museum director or guard,…
