Gran Canaria day 6 and 7 – Let’s get naked!

On this day I went to the Yumbo center in the morning to get some breakfast. I also got some souvenirs, a beach towel and some postcards. After that I went back and got ready for the beach. I had one big goal for this day – go nude on the beach! I mean honestly, I am far away from my home and nobody knows me here. Also I will probably never ever see the people on the beach ever again in my life. So why not simply do it? So I went with only my shorts on to the …

Gran Canaria day 5 – Lost in the desert

When I woke up, I checked my bank account and saw that there was no money on it at all! I was broke. Of course I was a bit upset, but I tried to stay calm and thought about what to do next. As I wanted to go to the next place, I asked a friend of mine online if she can book a place for me. The money I had left was enough for some food and a bus ticket, so this wasn’t a problem at all. Fortunately she booked a place to stay for me via Airbnb in …

Gran Canaria day 2 – The journey to the middle of nowhere

I woke up, a bit confused in the first place, but I remembered quickly why I was where I was.

Then I was saying goodbye to Habi and his girls and went to Santa Catalina. It was a very nice and warm morning and I had a lovely walk on the beach. The water there was very clear but I couldn’t go inside, as I had no idea where I could have left my …

Paris day 2 – No tourists for Mona Lisa

As usual I woke up, had my breakfast and my shower and packed my stuff for the day. I also got to know my roommate Flo. He is from France but lived in South Africa for the last 6 months. He went to Paris to find a flat and start the next step for his life. We arranged to meet up for a dinner tonight. Then I went to the Louvre. Armed Police was everywhere. I couldn’t find the entrance to the Louvre so I got all of my courage together to ask one of the police men and they …

Iceland day 5 – A strange day in the swimming pool

I woke up, had my daily routine and during my shower I was thinking about the falling star I saw last night when I was looking for the northern lights. Then I went towards Reykjavik. But first of all, I stopped at an Icelandic bakery to eat some typical pastry. I have to say, they are really good at baking pastry. When I left Selfoss, 2 women stopped for me. The Canadian women were so happy to give me a lift because it was one of their points written on their bucket list. It is part of the culture in Iceland to stop …
