Casablanca B&B

  Even though I have only been a few days off for a trip to Berlin, it feels like I haven’t been on my blog for ages. I had an exciting time in Berlin with more food experiences and some shopping… But before I move on to Germany’s capital I still want to share with…

San Pedro de Majagua

Cartagena itself does not have nice bathing spots at the sea. So it is recommendable go on day tours to the close islands, do island hopping or just stay for some nights on an island. I just wanted to flee from the tiny streets filled with tourists, the honking noises from the cabs and the…

La Cevicheria

When I was planning my trip to Colombia “La Cevicheria” was on my bucket list. When I arrived and saw the waiting queue with a lot of tourists I reconsidered it and didn’t want to go anymore, because (a) touristy location: nope (b) waiting: nope (you cannot reserve – first comes first serves) BUT: My…

La Vitrola

This a cuban style fine dining restaurant at Cartagena. The food is diverse, but even if you can order meat dishes the focus is also here on seafood. Since it’s fresh from the coast, I can recommend it. I went for Prawns and Pasta, recommendable: Langostinos Indonesios (with Tamarind and Bell Pepper Sauce). Although the…

Goodbye 2015

Besides that I sufficiently fulfilled my New Years Resolution for 2015, I wanted to also do a review about this year – but instead of just “blabla”, I had the idea of answering questions that are usually in “classmates and friends” books that children pass around during elementary school, but altered it to make it…

Marea

Since I loved Criterion so much, I had to visit another Hermanos Rausch Restaurant. And luckily I had the chance to try their seafood restaurant in Cartagena: Marea! The food is delicious, the dishes well balanced in taste and decoration. The combination of colors are amazing! The dishes are little art pieces for eyes and…

Santa Clara, Cartagena

After a week in Bogota, I have spent some days in beautiful Cartagena at the Caribbean Coast and also some time on an island close by. Cartagena is not only popular by tourists, but also a hot spot for weekend trips for many Colombians, so that when I was booking the hotel even two months…

Bogota: To Do & To See

Salt Cathedral, Zipaquirá Miners built the stations of the cross and a cathedral in a salt mine near Bogota. It is really impressive to stand in a huge underground hall and to know that the miners built this all by themselves. Tours are also available in English. Guatavita Lagoon In over 3000m height situated, the…

(Fast) Food in Bogota

What else did I eat in and around Bogota? For Breakfast I often had Almojabana & Arepa (both are corn based pastries with cheese), these also vary from region to region and I have been told that the ones from the countryside are the best, as they are made the more traditional way. Or also…

La Puerta Falsa

This snack point in the historical city center of Bogota is a place to go! It is a tiny eatery which has been operating since 1816 and where locals and foreigners meet for their Hot Chocolate (without milk!), Sweet Treats, Tamales and Ajiaco (which is a Colombian corn soup). I went only for the sweet treats,…
