Cenote Agua Dulce Mexico

Mexico and its Mystic Places!

The Cenote Agua Dulce and the Gran Cenote near Tulum


A couple month ago I was on a 7-month trip trough South America and one of my favorite destinations was Mexico!

But Why is it so special? 

  • Food (Tacos, Enchiladas, Fajitas and much more)
  • People (Kind, open, funny and always helpful
  • Nature (Crystal clear ocean, Cenotes, Diving, jungle and much more)
  • Weather (Sunny and hot)
  • Culture!

These are just couple reasons why I loved that country so much! 

On our trip we stayed at a little hotel in Valladolid and made some day trips around the area.


What is a Cenote?

A cenote is a limestone hole created by the collapse of a cave ceiling filled with fresh water. The word ”Cenote” comes from the Mayan word ”Dzonot” and means ”holy water”. In Mayan culture, people believed that cenotes were the entrance to another world where their rain god Chac lived.

Mayan Culture Cenotes


Cenote Agua Dulce

Just a 33 minutes drive outside the city we discovered a cenote that blew our minds. The entrance was in the middle of nowhere. As we walked down the entrance we didn’t know what to expect as the hole was just a black wall which makes it impossible to take a look inside from above.

Finally, we were standing inside a small cave made out of limestone and couple holes at the ceiling which let light inside.

The water was cold, so we couldn’t stay inside for long, still enough to take some awesome picture to remember that place. Kind of scary to imagine that these lime stones are just hanging down the ceiling, ready to fall down on us. but still a moment of joy.

A place to visit if you get the chance!


So thanks for reading my post and I hope you get the chance to visit Mexico and this beautiful cenotes!

Cheese hike Swiss Mountains ”Grüäzi”

Grüäzi mitenand! Hello everybody!

Stoos! A small village located 1305 m above sea level. It has just 150 inhabitants. In summer a nice place to go for a hike and in winter a ski resort. The whole town is car free what makes it much more relaxing.

View on my way down, the view from another mountain big Mythen!

Cheese hike ”Chääswanderung”

At the switch of the mountain station you can buy your ticket including the cheese pass. But what is a cheese pass?

Up in this little village you will find a lot of small restaurants and farmer houses which offer fresh cheese from their goats or the region.

Some of them are located in the middle of the village and others a 1-hour hike away the station.

This is what it will cost:

  • Up/Down the mountain in the Stoostrain: 22.- CHF
  • Cheese pass: 15.- CHF

The Alpchäs pass gives you the freedom to taste native Alpine cheese  in seven ”Bergbeizli” along the cheese trail at Stoos. Portion to approx. 100g alp cheese with bread. 

On the way to the little farmer houses you will pass by goats and cows. They will even walk with you for some time.

You will have incredible views on the way walking through the forest along the stony ways. Far away the big and small Mythen and other Swiss alps. The air is always fresh and birds are singing along the ways. So this is definitely one experience for itself.

On our way back we had to hike a little up the hill which makes it even more enjoyable since you have to do something to get to this nice cheese places, where you can sit down and enjoy some native cheeses they offer. I was surprised that even the bread and tee was self made!


View on the way down along the tracks

Since I didn’t take a picture of the car itself I will show you a picture from the internet. It looks so adventerus.

So thanks for reading my post and I hope you get the chance to visit Switzerland and go for a Chääswanderig at the Swiss apls!

tofu

This is how tofu is produced in Indonesia. From importing the doy beans to forming a tofu block. We learned about the production process in a factory in Magelang Indonesia.

Do you like tofu?

The Tofu production Vlog

You might ask yourself what is tofu made from? We have been curious too and decided to visit a local tofu factory. We initially traveled to the area of Magelang to visit the Borobodur temple but afterwards we decided to learn more about the local economy. This is how they produce the tofu in Indonesia. They showed us the whole process, from importing the soy beans to pressing the blocks and selling it to the market. Some machines are interestingly improvised and some processes are well thought out. It was a very interesting visit, to see how the soy beans goes through the different process until it becomes a well shaped tofu block.


Indonesia has so much to offer. Explore beautiful layers of rice fields. Visit detail-rich temples or mosques and learn about the Indonesian culture. Drive along stunning landscapes. Hike up a volcano and enjoy the sunrise at the edge of a crater. Grab a board and ride one of those perfectly shaped waves. Eat through Indonesia diverse kitchens. Countless things to do and to see. this is Indonesia.

Is Bogotá dangerous?

Hi everybode! Today I am going to tell you a little bit of my impressions of Bogotá. 

With over 9 million inhabitants Bogotá is not only the capital, but also the larges city in Colombia. 

Arrived at the airport

It takes quite a while to get to the city center. Of course there are regular buses and taxis that offer affordable rides but I chose to take an Uber, which was no as easy as I thought it would be since Uber is forbidden in Colombia and there is a dispute between them and the regular taxi drivers. 

I had to find a certain driver at the indicated location in the middle of a parking lot. After a long time writing and searching I finally got my Uber. 

Driving by all those houses and neighborhoods I was surprised how big this city was. The streets are busy with a lot of traffic. 

What I saw

Restaurants, market places and a nice old town. Painted walls and the urban lifestyle make this city really interesting. 
Large squares with crowds and cool little coffe shops and bars in side streets. 

In the little restaurants they offer you traditional food to unbelievably cheap prices. So don’t search the fanciest ones just go and get something thats more cultural!

City cable car!

A little outside of the city you have the opportunity to see the roofs and colored houses from above with a city cable car. We had such a good time and took nice pictures. 

Is Bogotá dangerous?

Yes the city is dangerous, but! The chance that you get robbed can be minimized. No nice shirts, your watch can stay in the hotel and all the other fancy stuff is not quite right. Behave normally and try to stay on the main streets or in turistic areas and you will certainly not be touched at all. 

I fell in love with the culture of Colombia and its people, so it is worth a visit!

Thanks for reading this post and I hope to see you soon on my channel!

Carnival in Jogja

While strolling through Yogya city in Indonesia we stumbled upon a huge carnival taking place at the Malioboro street! i know how such a carnival looks like in my home country but i’ve never experienced it in a foreign country. So we decided to sit into a coffee shop with an elevated balcony and enjoyed the parade from up there.

Swipe right to see the video trailer of the carnival. The full vlog is up on the tube!

The Carnival Vlog

While strolling along the streets of Jogjakarta we accidentally stumbled upon a huge carnival at the Malioboro street. We discoverd a coffeeshop with a nice elevated balcony on which we sat down, ordered a cappuccino and an iced latte, to enjoy the carnival parade from up there. It was amazing to marvel at the different costumes, formations and choreography they presented at this carnival. Different instruments, lots of colors and costumes! A highlight were the traditional carriage with horses or dogcarts however you want to call it. Jogjakarta is well known for its retro carriage pushed by horses through the city and it was nice to see them implemented in the parade as well.

After the terrible experience of walking in the streets (especially by night) of Uluwatu we decided to rent a scooter to cruise around. I have a international motorcycle license and a couple of years of driving experience. Neverthless things went crazy, watch what happened. On the scooter we explored the Uluwatu temple, Padang Padang Beach and enjoyed a wonderful Sunset in the Single Fin Bar.

Malioboro street in Yogyakarta

malioboro street

Stumbled upon the Marlioboro street which was pretty lively and busy. We entered a Yogyakarta mall and ate at local restaurants. Explored the street markets and explored what the street food stands had to offer. The day ended with a quick workout at the rooftop gym of the hotel and the refreshing dip in to the rooftop pool, which was illuminated in different colors. Dinner in a fancy Italian styled Restaurant with chilly live music.
WHAT A DAY!
