The travel blog for the backpackers guide to the world


Finally. I found a place I truly like. Primosten is everything I expected. It is chilled out and beautiful. There are literally no sights so one can just kick back and relax. The setting is absolutely spectacular and the people seem friendlier too. I like it. For once I didn’t have to get up in […]


I did manage to get up in the morning. I am very much impressed with myself. I even arrived at the train station with time to spare. Since I was starving I went to Scottish restaurant that serves coffee and fast food. I always thought that a McShit is equally bad all over the world. […]


Good news, I do know people in Ljubljana. A girl I met about ten years ago spontaneously decided to become a facebook user only about three days ago. Since she still used her old email and I had probably send her a friend request when I opened my account some 50 years ago we are […]

Golfing holidays

Golf is a hugely popular sport around the world, and many people find that their ideal holiday is combining sightseeing and relaxation with a few rounds. For a great many golfers, who are members of a local course and only ever play there, a holiday gives them the chance to test their skills on a […]

The Pacific – Day 22

I am no pussy when it comes to waves, I almost drowned in at least two different oceans and I do consider myself if not the inventor than at least the intellectual father of the “art of body surfing” but this place was tough. The force of the waves was one thing but the undercurrents […]

Monterrico – Day 21

As I had anticipated I spent an uneventful night in Guatemala City. It took ages to find a working ATM and towards the end I was rather fed up. I don’t know who to blame for it, the Irish or the Guatemalan banks, but it really was a major pain in the hole to get […]

On the road again – Day 20

The evening in Livingston turned out rather interesting. As I probably mentioned I liked the place. It’s not exactly a little paradise but it certainly has something to it. I went for dinner to a little place down at the beach. My friend Pedro hat recommended it. Pedro was the guy that had picked me […]

Livingston – Day 19

The boat from Rio Dulce was not exactly cheap but the trip was actually worth it. They give you some kind of tour and stop when there is something interesting. Lago Izabal is quite pretty and there was a lot of wildlife to be seen on the way – mostly birds – and some picturesque […]

Rio Dulce – Day 18

I don’t know what is wrong with me. I was in a perfect place with really nice people and of all things in the world I had to leave and go to Rio Dulce. May be I really should see a shrink. This was suggested to me in the past and I start to believe […]

Finca Ixobel – Day 17

The moment I set foot in the little bar down by the pond I knew I would not leave after one night as I had planned. The Finca does a buffet style dinner all you can eat and it was very good. Since I had a very enjoyable dinner conversation with an old American couple […]

Poptun – Finca Ixobel – Day 16

I didn’t initially want to stop in Poptun but I heard from different sources that the Finca Ixobel really does worth a visit. My friend Amy had almost urged me to go there and she even named the exact tree house I should stay in. I was a tiny little bit suspicious though. Amy is […]
