I’ve been twice to San Pedro de Atacama. After my first visit I’ve decided it just wasn’t enough as the oasis and surroundings have so much to offer. It’s one of the most touristic regions in Chile and definitely one of the most expensive ones. And why is it so? It’s in the middle of the desert, there shouldn’t be anything in there, right? Wrong. There’s plenty.
So here it is, brand new year 2016! I’m traveling already for 12 months and slowly getting to the end! How would I summarise the last year? In points, as I don’t have Internet in here.
Australia is a country where many nations migrated in the past. One of them were Germans! Ja! Well back (19 century) their region was part of Prussia, today it´s Poland. The city was named after the captain of the ship Zebra – Dirk Meinhertz Hahn and until today it is the oldest surviving (still existing) German settlement in Australia. And it´s pretty schön!
After half a year of non-stop travelling I can say I´ve been to places and I´ve seen a lot of stuff, sometimes incredibly beautiful, sometimes only stuff. Being constantly on the way teach you that you cannot really attach yourself to the people or to places, because you either don´t have so much space in your backpack or you cannot stay for so long in one place. And it is really difficult sometimes because I get easily attached.
The second most important stupa in Kathmandu for Buddhists is the Swayambunath. Its name – Swayambhu – means “self made” or “self created”.
