When we arrived in Santa Cruz on tuesday evening I was pretty wiped out and glad when our luggage was stored on the buses and we could start driving. I almost fell asleep on the ride but what I still noticed about Bolivia was that the traffic here is pure madness. They just honk for everything, the actual four roadways become five or six, and they moderately keep the direction of the roadways and the traffic lights. I couldn’t grasp more on my first day.

All the best, dad

Today is my dad’s birthday. Because I can’t be with him on a day this important I’m now sending my greetings over from Bolivia. Happy birthday dad and I hope they celebrate you.

I love you ♡



My flight started in Frankfurt and went over Madrid to Santiago in Chile. From there went a flight to Iquique (also Chile) and the last flight ended in Santa Cruz, Bolivia.

The first Flight went over the Andes Mountains and it was a very nice view.

The food on board was similar to Taizé food. So edible 🙂

I could only see a little bit of Chile from the Airport and it looked like a desert.

It felt like I landed somewhere in the middle of nowhere – an interesting experience.

It’s starting

And the airplane takes off. Monday evening, 19:25 pm.

A great last view on Germany.

And a great view on the Andes Mountains too, during our first Flight towards Chile.

1 day before the departure

From tomorrow on i’ll be abroad for one year and i’m becoming more and more nervous.
I woke up pretty early today and couldn’t fall asleep again – but maybe that was good because there is still a lot I have to do. Who would have thought that packing and cleaning my room would take so much time when you have to plan ahead for a whole year.

Welcome :)

So, this is my first time writing a blog, but I’ll do my very best.
The reason for me to enter unknown territory (writing a blog for the first time) is quite obvious.
I’m going abroad for a year – to South America – and to stay in contact with my family and friends I write this blog. Here I can keep them informed about how I’m doing.
