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!

The Tuktuk Nap

tuktuk driver

Back from the countryside adventures of Jawa Indonesia we dove right into the city life of Yogyakarta. Massive traffic, street vendors, shopping malls and busy people surrounding us. Traveling from a slowed down place to a bigger city really makes you feel the change of mood. I’m not pointing out to the negative effects only. City life can really energize you, bring flow to your routine and new dynamics compared to a much more relaxed place like the countryside.

This dude sleeping deeply relaxed on his tuktuk shows us that city life can be pretty tiring too. Do you take naps on a busy day?

The Yogyakarta Vlog

We have left the area of Magelang and drove with our driver to the hotel we have previously booked in Yogyakarta. The city name is sometimes written Yogyakarta and sometimes Jogjakarta, don’t ask me why. If you know what’s the difference, write me in the commends please. So we have been sitting in that car and it started to rain heavily. Luckily we haven’t been outside for sightseeing.

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!

Gili Meno Drone view

There is a lake on the Island of Gili Meno where a lot of birds breed. The lake is not really a spot to swim but amazing to watch the sunset from a boat dock. From the perspective of the drone it looks like the sea and the lake will connect on high tide, which is not really the case.

The Gili Meno Vlog

How is life on a small island like Gili Meno? we spend a couple of days exploring all corners of this island. Some people live there but mostly tourists visit this island on a day trip on a boat from Gili Trawangan.

Climbing the Borobodur!

borobodur

It was one of the most impressive moments climbing up the stairs of the Borobodur temple. While getting closer to the top of the biggest Buddhist temple, we saw the pillars covered in fog. Everything felt so mystical.



The worlds biggest Buddhist temple close to Yogyakarta was the reason why we traveled to this place. The day before we discovered the hotel area, relaxed and went early to bed. To get enough sleep. because on this day we woke up at 04:00 AM to experience the sunrise from the infamous Borobodur temple. Unfortunately it was too foggy to see the sunrise but the temple was impressive and the fog made this place super mystical. So is it worth to visit the Borobodur temple? watch and decide for yourself. The Borobodur temple is a huge monument and is on the UNESCO world heritage list.

A casual airport sunrise

sunrise lombok airport

Packed the bags and woke up early. It rained heavily this night and we had to calculate some extra time to get to the airport because there was a risk for flooded roads. Fortunately we arrived on time. Boarding the plane we have been rewarded with this stunning sunrise reflecting in the water on the runway.

The Vlog

Tanjung Aan Beach on Lombok

The Tanjung Aan Beach is the most beautiful beach on Lombok they say. It was our mission to check this spot out. Relaxing by the beach with coconut water and beach chair occupation. Afterwards we climbed up the Merese Hills right besides Tanjung Aan and operated the drone to get the birds eye view on this perfect spot!

New instagram post is out. Check it out it is still warm!

A warm sunny day in Borobodur, close to Yogyakarta, Indonesia. Drone batteries have been fully charged and the pool was empty. Easy decision to go for a dip and a chilled drone session. Filmed the hotel area for the vlog and captured some pictures while Simone was floating like cloud in the sky.
