Mini-holiday at the Tauern Spa

By

I spent a couple of days in Tauern Spa – and this is how wonderful it was Barely a month ago I boarded a plane in Edmonton and flew home after exactly eight months of living abroad. Eight months seemed like an eternity in the beginning, and I also struggled with myself, whether or not I made the right decision. I am still a little torn whether a semester at an university in Europe would have been sufficient too. On the other hand, I enjoyed my travels and diving very much. What’s done is done though.  In any case, I…

Majorca – what to do besides hardcore partying

By

Majorca – what to do besides hardcore partying I don’t what it is like where you are from but here people interrelate Majorca with drinking and partying it up in Magaluf. This is such a shame and it even saddens me a little. Majorca has so much to offer and that’s why I spent 10 days there in August and took a look around for you. We stayed at a gorgeous little Casita close to Petra. Petra is a great starting point for trips around the island as it is right in the center of Majorca. We also saved a…

A Weekend in the Desert of Tatacoa – or I wish I was at the Pool already

By

A Weekend in the Desert of Tatacoa It’s about to be midnight and I’m cold. Even though I’ve chosen Bogotá because of its mild climate, I tend to forget about it from time to time. I cross one of the city’s main highways on the pedestrian bridge and finally find the others. Together with other students, we are travelling to the Desert of Tatacoa with Outlanders Colombia. The night bus to Tatacoa At the beginning of my semester here in Colombia, I marked all sites and places in my Lonely Planet that I wanted to visit during the semester. I…

Diving with Underwater Scooters in Bonaire

By

Diving with Underwater Scooters in Bonaire During one of my first dive courses, I remember watching the PADI videos when they shortly talked about underwater scooters. Since then – that course dates back to 2010 – I’ve been looking for them more or less. I was never successful just until I found some underwater scooters in Bonaire for rent. Some of the local dive shops provide fun adventure dives and rent them. Of course, my boyfriend and I wanted to give them a try and had them for one of our morning dives. After a short introduction with a wonderful…
