Tanzanian Money

I just wanted to share Tanzanian bank notes. I really find some of them among more interesting and beautiful if comparing them to Euros or other currencies.  Take a look, nice money isn’t it?

Average Tanzanian Salary is between 80 000 TSH an 150 000 TSH, which is in Eur 40 and 80 Eur. Now do the math….

Bus Station in Tanzania

I love Africa! You can buy anything just about anywhere.

Bus stations are the most photogenic places but the problem is I am afraid to pull out my better camera from my backpack:-)

Trip To Crater Lake Chala

Another weekend, another trip. This time to Lake Chala which is located on the border Kenya. Magical place, a bit remote but this is what makes it so tranquil. Nirvana for 7 USD per night.

Day Trip To Kilimanjaro National Park

I wanted to do this trip to Kilimanjaro National Park last year but there was not enough time.  One day, 24 kilometers of walking, great guide, 150 USD and here i was, Mandara hut 2720 m. There is another 350 m to Maundi Crater, so  I can say i was on 3000 meters for the first time of my life. If the entrance wasn’t so expensive I would do a two day trip up to Horombo hut…Now i have a reason come back next time, fitter of course:-)

Would Love To Have This in My Garden

Sorry fellow bloggers for not following your posts as much as I would like to! Here is Internet connection really slow so I am not posting as much as i  planned from home. I have now already all settled in Arusha, in a nice quiet neighborhood under the slopes of volcano mountain Meru. As I have to work daily i haven’t manage to utilize my camera yet, just few snapshots with iphone, but since i am gonna stay here for two months i have time to catch up with photography.

I fell in love with this ornamental garden banana tree!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Foreign

Mentality.Madaba is special place in Jordan for many reasons. To me the photo below presents foreignism. Town was full of transparents and my guide told me they are praising their King Abdullah II bin Al-Hussein. I was surprised, since i come from a country where people are disappointed by politicians and the last thing would be praising them and showing the love and support with banners.

Final errands to run before i leave.Try to eliminate the  expectations, but feel like i might not come back:D Felt like at home there last year and feels like I am coming home. …. What do we need to feel happy? Western commodities didn’t make me happy so far. Money? Job titles? I dont think so….

Counting Down – 4 Months in Africa

Didnt have much time off this year as i am saving all my free days at work for this trip. Although 51 days sounds incredibly a lot of time, weeks are passing by with enormous speed. So, slowly falling in the mood for Africa, reading some literature and travel stories, printing vouchers for first few days of arrival, gathering a huge pile of things and clothes that will be soon on a baggage trial – and i will probably make phd on how to pack for four months in one deuter backpack. Nevertheless, I will start my trip in Tanzania, then i fly to Rwanda  then Virunga  national park in DR Congo –  if god is merciful:), then to Uganda and finish in Kenya. Sounds easy….:D

Excited to say the least, and proud as this will be my first solo trip.

Colombia Itinerario

Backpacker in Colombia

After deciding to travel to Colombia, the most difficult thing was deciding what to exclude from the list of attractive and active places of interest. Colonial cities, coffee plantations archaeological ruins, high mountain trekking, scuba diving, rafting, whale watch list is almost endless.

There were about three different itinerary variations – here is the last loop.

colombia itinerary

Bogota

If your flight lands at the airport from Bogota to Bogota it is the logical starting point and a base for side trips around Bogota. Spend a few days in the city, stroll, visit the Gold Museum, Police Museum, the abundance of everything hanging around the Candelaria, go to the Zona Rosa at night …. As you planned to stay in Bogotá during the first three days in the initial section of the trip to Colombia, we have chosen to make a trip to Salt Cathedral of Zipaquirá, which will take you one day. In addition to the backpackers Zipaquira many opt for Villa de Leyva or Gill San. The choice is yours, a matter of personal priorities and time available.

Bogota center

Pasto – Ipiales – Pasto

The next stop was Pasto (actually, Las Lajas Cathedral near Ipiales) which is located in the southwestern part of Colombia. After an in-depth research online we decided to take a plane, otherwise you would be wasted too much time in traveling back and forth. First, we were thinking of taking a bus and making a stop in Popayan and available elsewhere and then head south. According to other online resources it is a long bus ride.

the sanctuary

Pasto – Cali – Armenia – Salento

A weekend in Pasto is enough if you go there mainly to visit Las Lajas Cathedral in Ipiales. Flight back to Cali. From Cali we took a minibus that took us to Armenia and then another to the town of Salento – a base for the day trip to the Cocora Valley.
Finca in Valle de Cocora

Salento through Pereira – Medellín

After walking in the most magnificent place in Colombia continued to Medellin. We only spent five days in Medellin and that is definitely not enough to see everything. A trip next to Guatapé (El Peñol).

The Penon

Medellín – Cartagena

We spent a weekend in Cartagena.
Cartagena square

Cartagena – Santa Marta

From Cartagena we take a bus to Santa Marta, which lasts about five hours. Santa Marta is not a port city of excitement, but its ticket to the Tayrona National Natural Park. We spent there a week, including Tayrona and Taganga. If you are lucky with the weather – you really were not – take a Lost City walk.

Santa Marta – San Andrés

 At the time of the visit there were no direct flights from Santa Marta. First traveled to Bogota, then to Cartagena and finally to San Andrés to finish the trip with real sand beaches.

San Andrés-Bogotá – Home.

Of all the trips visited the countries to Colombia left me the deepest impression withe. Its most treasured treasure and the diversity of natural and cultural gems that are simply breathtaking. Despite the much poverty in rural areas, infinite pride, but still great, joy and laughter in the face of everyone, you get a different perspective on life. How sad and unfair that many people are still familiar with this country just by drugs, crime and kidnappings. This is undoubtedly a country that deserves a second chance. Once there, you will not feel insecure for a moment. The only thought you carry within you is that the trip would never end, and as the slogan slogan of Colombia’s tourism organization says,

All Day I Dream About Zanzibar

My favourite place on Zanzibar:) Nungwi beach was unforgettable place on my vaction to Tanzania. I dont even know whether to say this here on WordPress because I dont want to come there again and find crowded place because everybody will want to be there. But yes, I love solitude, and I got it there, plenty. I couldn’t understand that guests preferred swimming pool over the sea!

Actually I stayed a few days in Luxury resort generally isn’t my way of travel, but after a weeks of dusty roads and low budget hotels Ras Nungwi really felt like heaven.

Here is one video, the rest of material on link above.

What To See in Barcelona

In November I had a opportunity to visit Barcelona for a few days. There was so much more on my to see list, but I ran out of time.

Here are some photos from Olympic park, Barrio Gothico, Gaudi park, Sagrada Familia, Casa Batillo and from Placa Espanya. If you havent been there yet you can get a picture what to see in Barcelona, this is only a fragment and will probably upload part two.

Have to come back  for more this summer 🙂

Zipaquira Trip

In 2010 I was backpacking in Colombia. Zipaquira was my first day trip from Bogota. What makes Zipaquira so interesting is underground  cathedral in former salt mine.

Enjoy the pics:)
