Middle and South America, Laos 2013 - 2014

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream." Mark Twain

My travels were a maximum of four weeks before 2013. The comment of the colleagues in the office was often "Such a long time?". If I met, however, in Asia baking packer which I told proudly about my four-week vacation, I became quickly quiet, because mostly they spend several months abroad and my four weeks looked very short. The desire to go once on a longer trip grew and became reality.

I quit my job and flew on 5th August 2013 to Havana. I travelled the next months through Middle and South America. I enjoyed every day and didn't regret the decision to travel. Quite the reverse! It was one of the best decisions in my life.

I'm often asked what was most beautiful. I can't answerr this question, because some places or experiences are not comparable. My top ten are: Antarctica, Easter Island, the Galapagos Islands, Patagonia in Argentina and Chile, the ascents of my first six-thousand, the Chachani (6,074 m) in Peru, the ascent of Table Mountain Roraima in Venezuela, Guatemala, the Mayan ruins in Mexico, the Atacama desert, the rainforest in the Orinoco Delta in Venezuela and in the catchment area of the Amazon in Bolivia.

I returned after 400 days back to Germany on 8th September 2014 and got a culture shock. I bought a ticket to Laos after six weeks and returned after a month in Laos finally back to Germany on 20th November 2014.
