Isla Ometepe – Nicaragua’s mysterious volcanic island

Isla Ometepe is a truly unique place. As for so many, the island was without a doubt one of our highlights. The world's largest freshwater lake is surrounded by the pristine waters of Central America's largest lake, Lago Nicaragua. Formed by two volcanos Conception and Maderas, the island took the shape of an infinity symbol. The once native Nahual people called the island "two hills" (Ome = two, tepe = hills). Isla Ometepe's mystical charm and breathtaking rugged landscape have intrigued been intriguing mankind ever since. As you approach the island with its twin-coned silhouette dramatically rising into the horizon the boat ride itself brings the promise of a magical experience.

Marrakesh – the dream of 1001 nights

Marrakesh mesmerized me from the second we left the cab. Surrounded by "guides" eager to lead us to our Riad. Never would we have found our Riad ourselves, even though the taxi left us only about 300 m from the entrance. The unimposing door was hiding the beautifully decorated and colorful Riad. We were confronted with the incredible detail of Moroccan style. We stood there with our mouths open. Deeply impressed and taken aback by so many impressions, so much beauty.
