Check it out for the awesome Volcano Telica & Isla de Ometepe, and of course it also features some GoPro footage of the infamous volcano boarding at Cerro Negro 🙂 Hope you like it!

Live #45, Isla de Ometepe, Nicaragua

#65_nicaragua_ometepe03/04/2015 I’m back from Antarctica and it has been a truly breathtaking experience! Can’t wait to write about it once I managed to sort out all the pictures and videos. Right now I am in a hotel in Ushuaia, trying to find a Couchsurfing place for tonight. A good opportunity to provide you my last live update from Nicaragua: Isla de Ometepe.

Live #44, Granada, Nicaragua

#64_nicaragua_granada17/03/2015 Good news! Thanks to Couchsurfing, I will have a new camera similar to my old one just before I depart to Antarctica. The weather here in Patagonia is not the best right now anyway, so I have time for some Bouldering in the area and to plan the rest of my South America trip. As the Internet is still very bad, I can just provide small updates and it takes me nearly a full day to upload those pictures from Granada in Nicaragua.

Live #43, Laguna de Apoyo, Nicaragua

#63_nicaragua_apoyo14/03/2015 I had a great day hiking to Laguna Torres yesterday and then up one of the higher mountains in the area today after sleeping at the camp ground. The wind nearly blew me off my feet this time and it was a shame I could only take pictures with my phone and GoPro fake, the views were just amazing even though I could not see Cerro Torre. The internet here is very bad, so I’m keeping the update very small as well. But at least I can get an update out 🙂

Live #42, Cerro Negro Volcano Boarding, Nicaragua

#62_nicaragua_cerronegro08/03/2015 I’m sorry for the limited internet access in the last days; now I am back though and can deliver some pictures from the Volcano Boarding on Volcan Cerro Negro in Nicaragua. Later today I will leave Colombia behind and fly from Bogotá to Buenos Aires in Argentina!

Live #41, León & Volcan Telica, Nicaragua

#61_nicaragua_telica01/03/2015 I’m about to start a five day trek through the jungle to the Lost City in Colombia and thanks to my tour operator Turcol, I can give you a quick update with their Wifi before I head off into no-wifi-land once more. León in Nicaragua is a beautiful city, but after having seen so many beautiful cities, I could not wait to get out again and hike Volcan Telica, which eventually became one of my personal highlights in Nicaragua! Check out this post to see why.

Live #40, Estelí, Nicaragua

#48_nicaragua_esteli_albert_stone_man1

24/02/2015 Getting to Santa Marta here in Colombia took a bit longer than expected, including getting thrown out of the car in the middle of the highway in Barranquilla. Luckily another car actually came to pick us up again for the rest of the journey, without charging us twice 🙂 This live update is about 75 year old Alberto Gutierrez, who I have met in the Tisey Estanzuela Natural Reserve back in January. His stone carvings up in the hills are nothing short of amazing.

Live #39, Somoto, Nicaragua

#60_nicaragua_somoto22/02/2015 Sitting in an air conditioned dorm full of snoring guys in Cartagena, I can now finally use some fast internet again to update my blog! This is actually the very fist update from Nicaragua and my first stop was the town of Somoto, close to the border. The Somoto Canyon is one of the least explored tourist attractions of Nicaragua, so check this post out to see how my non guided tour turned out 🙂

The Stone Man Alberto Gutierrez in Estelí, Nicaragua

#48_nicaragua_esteli_albert_stone_man128/01/2015 The 15th of January has been a very special day for me. I met 75 year old Alberto Gutierrez, also known as the Stone Man, in his beautiful home deep in the Tisey Estanzuela Natural Reserve. He has been carving stones there for almost half of his life and will proudly present his work, should you make the effort of paying him a visit. It is not the easiest place to find and certainly off the beaten path, but if you ever get near Estelí on your Nicaragua trip, I would highly recommend to make this experience on your own. If not, just check out my report, pictures and the video here 🙂

Upcoming: Central America

Travelling from 03/11/2014 to End of January, 2015

g_around_the_world_2I wanted to get this out much sooner, but combining traveling with the planning of next stops takes a lot time; especially when we are talking about a total of eight countries! I am flying from Toronto to Cancun tomorrow morning and can now finally present my first set of ideas of what to do in Central America. Check it out if you are interested in joining me for any parts or if you can perhaps give me some advice!
