Wherever you go, go with all your heart

Hola de Colombia!

After enjoying amazing beach time at Máncora in the north of Perú, I travelled to Trujillo/Huanchaco where I took some surf lessons and spent awesome days enjoying the water and the sun. After intense weeks packed with incredible travel experiences it felt good to wind down and have time to sleep in and play with the waves. 

With a heavy heart I had to say “hasta luego” to Peru, as I flew to Cali, Colombia. This city in the south of Colombia has a lot to offer and welcomed me back with open arms to this wonderful country I am so in love with. 

After getting to know Cali and its amazing Salsa bars, I went to the Pacific coast (Buenaventura/Juanchaco) and got to enjoy wild and untouched beaches. This landscape cannot be captured in pictures and is even harder to describe in words. It is simply raw and beautiful at the same time. 

Right now I am in the coffee region near Salento enjoying amazing coffee in this beautiful scenery.

While travelling the last few weeks I noticed that is is not a lot that you need when you are on the road. Things I thought I would use a lot, I haven’t needed up to now and are still stored in my more than full backpack. 

In my mind a good spirit and an open mind and heart are one of the most important things to bring with you. It allows you to meet awesome people in the most unexpected ways and to enjoy all the moments to the fullest.

Travelling is simply full of moments of joy and challenges. Overcoming these challenges is what gives you some of the greatest joys of all. This may sometimes be uncomfortable or even painful, but so worth it.

I am simply thankful every day that I get to live this adventure I dreamt of for so long. 

It was my goal for this trip to find out what is really important to me and I made so many interesting observations which I want to share in the upcoming posts with you. 

Right now I still need time to process and sort it all out while enjoying my last few weeks in Colombia. Next stop: Medellin 🙂

Sunny greetings from the coffee region,
