Summer in Europe

Wow, it’s been a crazy few month! I only left South America in June and am back to Chile since late August, after my tourist visa in Brazil expired and I was forced to exit. Until June I bartered with the startup NuMundo near Valparaíso in Chile, and then left for Europe. With plans of relocating to Brazil permanently, I moved out of my flat in Berlin and sold my…

Surfing the World’s Biggest Waves in Punta de Lobos

Punta de Lobos is the best left pointbreak in Chile. A quickly developing system off of Antarctica was producing waves well above the 25-foot minimum requirement and the 2015 Big Wave Tour season kicked off on a Thursday, April 30. I got lucky and during my current visit to Chile, the World Surf League gave…

After visiting the falls from the Brazilian side I crossed to Argentina and mixed between the masses of tourists to visit the infamous “Garganta del Diablo” (Devils throat). The sheer masses of water made my jaw…

Wind, Sand and Kitesurfing in Tatajuba, Brazil

Tatajuba feels a bit like the end of the world. It’s a small settlement far out on the coast in the northeast of Brazil – the roads are made of sand, loose pigs and goats wander around searching for something edible and the strong winds blow away whatever isn’t bolted down. A massive sand dune…

Working for UNAWE at Leiden University

At some point in Australia earlier this year, I was fortunate enough to get an email from Pedro Russo, Universe Awareness International Project Manager at the Leiden Observatory. He invited me to come and work for UNAWE. The organisation develops educational resources about astronomy to get children interested in science. Kids are fascinated by the…

Portugal and a website for Marlies

After Boom Festival I travelled south, to one of the places on our planet I call home. I grew up in the sunny Algarve and went to school in a small costal town called Tavira. Along with it’s 37 churches there’s a old roman bridge and Tavira island, reached by ferry and a popular holiday…

India. For my first article about India, I shared my extensive route in just two month, took you on a train ride to Delhi, to the Ghats in Varanasi and up to Himalayan mountains in the north. For part two, I interviewed some Indian friends about why locals often want photos with foreigners and why…
