Barcelona is more than only a city. With the green massif of Collserola rising above the city, the Montjuic hill and the smaller Parque de Ciutadella it has very attractive green lungs.

Having lost my blog from back then I discovered that a lot of entries still exist on Facebook. So here is what I have recollected: January 30th, 2010, Brazilian BBQ After a mixed night out (cosy bar first (yeah), club with house music later (yuck)), we had a good nights sleep after travelling and the preparation stress at home. After completing our beauty sleep Chris colleague Rafael picked us up for a nice… Read More
Here is a selection of panoramic photos Michael took in 2017.
I made a selection of our favourite selfies Michael took last year during our sabbatical.
We arrived to the Nevada Falls after a quite tiring climb of 600 meters in altitude. As we had not planned to go on a longer hike we had no water or snacks with us. Too bad! The top of Nevada Falls is the perfect pick-nick spot. After more than five hours we reached the car and were quite happy to have our first break. The bears did not steal our bananas… Read More
Last week we decided to discover an area of Barcelona where we never had been before. We looked at the Barcelona metro map and took the most remote point the metro would bring us. Line 11 (light green line) is an indirect extension of the yellow line (L4) and connects the remote quarter of Torre Baró with the transportation network. It is rather new and they chose a light railway system to… Read More

Michael was completely hung over when we had to travel further. We had booked a trip to an indigenous village called Kavac. Well, it was a replica of an indigenous village built for tourists. So, in the morning we stepped into the Cesna again together with two American girls who had to join us as there were no sleeping places left in Canaima. Something went wrong with their booking apparently and thus… Read More
So we had a short stopover in Canaima before we continued our trip to the highest waterfall in the world: the Angel Falls (Salto Angel). We were a group of about 20 people to continue by logboat up a river for about three hours. Canaima was the last outpost before we entered pure wilderness. The landscape is breathtaking. Many mountains have a distinct shape and for this they are called: the tépui… Read More
It is exactly 10 years ago that we visited Venezuela for the third time. We spent two weeks travelling the country. In the first week we rented a car and after having acclimatized for a weekend in the capital, Caracas, we headed to the direction of Morrocoy National Park, an area we got to know already during our 2004 trip. Looking back I am thinking about what could have happened to us… Read More
