A place different than your every day environment is exciting to explore. Different colors, shapes and light conditions. Seeking that ‘different’ lets you feel like you won’t feel in your everyday life.

taman sari

This Perfspot is called Sumur Gumuling. It is known for this patio where the four staircases meet in the platform in the middle.

The Taman Sari Water Castle in Yogyakarta is one of the most famous sights in the city. It is known for the “instagrammable” spots, which means spots you can take great pictures for Instagram. This fact that visitors love to take pictures there simply means that it is a very aesthetic place. And it definitely is! The architecture of the castle, the tunnel and the surrounding buildings is simply fantastic.

Davos, Skiresort Swiss Alps

Davos Graubünden CH

I am in Davos Switzerland right now for some days. Enjoying the snow and sun. winter sport is one of my big hobbies in winter. I love to snowboard and ride down the mountains.


Davos is located in the canton of Graubünden in the Swiss Alps. It is around a 2-hour car drive from Zürich and almost 3 hours by train since the city is 1560 meters over sea level.

There are two parts of the town.

Davos Dorf

  • This is at the beginning of the town
  • Parsenn Ski Area
  • A lot of restaurants and hotels.
  • O la la Spa

Davos Platz

  • This is where the nightlife takes place.
  • A lot of bars, clubs and restaurants
  • Jakobshorn mountain to go for a ride
  • Hotels and the famous Davos Casino

Winterseason

The winter season starts around the end of November till the end of March. The holidays are normally around the end of the year over the New Year’s Eve or in February when all the schools have winter breaks.

The Prices around the holidays are much higher, so it is recommended to go at the beginning of December or in January. Fewer people on the mountain, more space to ride and better ski pass and hotel offers. More relaxed and more fun!


Parsenn Snowboarding

Most of the time we went snowboarding at Parsenn.

From Davos Dorf you can catch a train that brings you up. The biggest mountains in the Parsenn are the Weissfluhjoch 2622m and the Weissfluh peak 2844m over sea level. Due to the sea level there is always a big chance to have enough snow. In other ski resorts you will sometimes come across a lot of green spots on the ski slopes.

When the sun starts to go down and the mood gets you

In the Grubenalp restaurant you can get some nice Kässpätzli! The nice restaurants up the mountain are also a big plus that the Swiss Alps offer. The prices are high but nice food after a nice ride out makes it all worth it!


Jakobshorn Party Corner

The Jakobshorn side from Davos, the second biggest ski area in Davos is one to party till the sun goes down. You can enjoy nice music at the Jatzhütte, drink some beers and enjoy the nice panoramic view of the surrounding alps. We had so much fun and ended the nice day with a ride down with our Snowboards down to Davos Platz witch is quite a ride from up there.

So if you are in Switzerland and you find the time to go skiing or snowboarding, Davos is the place to be if you love riding and partying at once!

So hope to see you soon!

Chichén Itzá, Mexico

You need to add a widget, row, or prebuilt layout before you’ll see anything here. 🙂

Chichén Itzá

This place is one of many Mayan ruins in the state of Yucatán but one of the most famous ones! It was built around 600 AD and running till the 13th century. The middle point is the massive pyramid El Castillo. There are other buildings like the warrior temple and more to see. 


How to get there

We were travelling around Mexico for almost a month, so we had time to visit a lot of different places around Yucatán. 

We stayed in a nice little hotel in Valladolid which is located almost in the center of Ek Balem and Chichén Itzá. It is the perfect place to stay overnight and also visit some cenotes outside town. 

The city itself doesn’t have a lot to offer. There are enough restaurants bars to stay some time but that’s all. But still a perfect place if you want to see those famous Mayan ruins. 


The Mayan Ruin

Inside the Mayan site, you will find a little market to buy some souvenirs or clothes with nice signs on it. In the back you will see the unmistakable pyramid. To imagine that the pyramid was built by bare hands is incredible. We took a couple of photos from the ground but you are not allowed to climb up. 


Group of 1000 columns

The once covered squared pillars are in front of the warrior temple and the rows extend more east. A total of 1000 pillars that are marked with reliefs of warriors and bird people. It maybe show the army of Chichén Itzá. 


If you walk around the area you will find and see more ruins that are surrounded by trees in a little forest. This place is one of the bigger ones I have seen since I also visited the ruins near Tulum which were much smaller.


What to bring? 

I can not tell you exactly what clothes you should wear because the weather in Mexico changes from month to month. It is usually hot and tropical.

You will surely need enough water and possibly some food. Of course, it has food stalls, but they are rather full on a busy day and are therefore associated with long waiting times.

A camera is of course a must https://phonelookupbase.com , so that you have memories of these incredible pyramids and sculptures. 

There are parking spaces directly in front of the entrance. A cashier will instruct you and ask for something small. Of course, buses also drive from the capital cities like Valladolid.


South America has so much to offer. Visit the Iguazu Falls in Brazil, go Skiing in the Argentinian mountains or climb a volcano in Ecuador. Taste some real fresh Colombian coffee. Catch the perfect wave at the Costa Rica ocean or go diving in a cenote cave in Mexico. There is no limit!

Hats and Smiles

strawhat

Sun, smiles, temples and straw hats.
The Prambanan temples are some huge buildings built by hundreds of years old stone. It was an amazing day to explore the sight with all its different angles, corners and perspectives.
Part of the Perfspots exploration team was Simone. We have been equipped with plenty of water, some snacks, the cameras and of course the traditional Lombok straw hats. It was an amazing day and the best part was to explore the less crowded, less popular temples in the area.

felt like Indiana Jones

Explore the Temples!

An early morning wake up to explore the Prambanan Temple and all the temples surrounding it. We have ordered a taxi directly to the hotel which brought us to the Prambanan Temple area. Arriving there, obviously we where not the only ones. But it was not crowded because the Prambanan Temple is pretty large and the tourists visiting it spread out over the sight. I documented our experience on this Travel Vlog. It was an insanely hot day but we decided to walk to the other temples behind the Prambanan. We noticed, most tourists only visit the main attraction and do not visit the other attractions. We highly recommend you to check the others out as well. Exploring the Candi Sewu, Candi Bubrah and the Candi Lumbung was amazing. Walking through the abandoned sights really felt like walking in a indiana jones movie! Especially the Candi Lumbung was fascinating with its unique architecture and chambers.

Coffee over Yogyakarta’s roofs

hotel coffee

Twelfth floor. A nice red wing chair. A huge window. Beautiful view over Yogyakarta. Small but well designed lounge table. But most important, complementary coffee!

Check out the Hotel

yogya

Every day, the first thing when i got up was booting the coffee machine.

A good hot steaming cup of coffee in front of this view: an absolute perfect spot!

Also before heading to the pool of course!

hotel coffee

There is no better combination than enjoying calmly a cup of coffee while overlooking a busy city. How people hurry to go to work and mind their business. Cars and Scooters driving up and down. Street vendors and businessman crossing their ways. All while time seems to stand still for you holding the cup.

The Hotel Vlog

Arriving in Yogyakarta we have been overwhelmed by the traffic. Scooters, cars, coaches. Then we arrived. The lobby boy opened the doors and carried our luggage inside. First impression: a really fancy Lobby! comfy lounge chairs. diamonds hanging from the ceiling and a delicious welcome drink. That was a nice arrival. But wait for the hotel room the view of Yogya or Jogja, however you want to call it, was stunning!

The Prambanan Temple framed by a tree.
This Temple is huge and accompanied by three more sights. This Tree perfectly framed this construction built hundreds of years ago. Also besides a perfect photo spot this tree threw some shade which was very useful and relaxing on this super hot day.
