We Are All Just Visitors Passing By
Don’t be afraid to fail. Don’t be afraid of your fears. Actually don’t be afraid at all. Remember that you are going to die. Its the best way to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose.

The Photo Review of 2015

The Photo Review of 2015

Our 2015 year was one of the most challenging ever so far. It started in Paraguay and ended in Ecuador. During this year we managed somehow to live in 4 different countries: Paraguay, Bolivia, Colombia and Ecuador. Like always we had planed another road-map. This was actually plan-B because plan-A failed. You may know what FAIL stands for? First Attempt In Learning! When you make a plan and with guarantee the output will be different than what was initially planned. That is called life I believe. Read more

Or the soft feel or the sound of the bamboo trees as they rub against each other in the wind? I can’t really tell. One of the first time I saw a Bamboo forest was in the south of France a long time ago. Over time I kept learning more and more about this fabulous plant. The more I see and learn the more it keeps on impressing me. Somehow it seems similar like the magical Moringa tree with all those healthy features. Nature keeps on amazing me – every day.

Coconuts – The Tree of Life

Coconuts grow like crazy here in the region of Santa Cruz de la Sierra in Bolivia. It seems that they just don’t like the altitude of the mountains.
