After twelve years, I finally returned to the holiday destination of my childhood: Greece. The first three days, I spent on a (very popular) island that I have not visited so far: Santorini. Continue reading Santorini – a must-see (by popular vote)!
Originally, I did not have climbing Acatenango volcano on my itinerary. However, several travellers told me that this is the volcano hike to do in Guatemala: The views of the neighbouring (and very active) Fuego volcano were supposed to be awesome.

While we were in Reyjavík, we went on a half-day tour to a very impressive lava cave. Continue reading Iceland under ground
