Although I dont travel very frequently in my spare time, I have gotten around a little bit. Here I present some of my travels, mainly the ones to Peru, South Africa, Ethiopia, China and Mali.

My latest trip was to Mali in Oct-Nov 2010. That was my third time in Africa and it was certainly no less interesting than Ethiopia or South Africa!

My second latest trip was to South America, starting in Rio in Brazil and travelling overland via Bolivia to Santiago in Chile. Although it was a very interesting trip I so far haven't made a web page from that trip yet.

I was in China in Oct-Nov 2007. I had only touched ground in small parts of Asia so far (Singapore and Dubai) and needed to explore the continent a bit better. China is an important country today, but also has the old culture(s) and the diverse nature that makes it a great place to go to.

One of the trips that I will always remember was Ethiopia in November 2004. A very interesting county with lots to offer. But my faviourite so far was the trip to Peru - an amazing county with different cultures and lots of spectacular nature experiences. Read more by following the links below!
