Day 5 - Vamos a la playa

Today the sun was on our side most of the day. We woke up early and went to check out Playa de Los Christianos. It was only 20 minutes from our place.
This beach has golden sand and is close to the port with the same name. Next to this one is another beach, more beautiful from my point of view: Playa de Las Vistas. We had breakfast to a terrasse with balcony. After I finished my breakfast I went for a swim.
I got almost one hour to recharge my batteries on sun. What can I say?! The water is not so warm but the hot sun helps after you get out.
Then we went to Siam park, an aqua park. Yeah.. Not my thing. I don't like adrenaline.  We didn't stay too much because the water was only 2-3 degrees warmer than the ocean water. I checked out the beach. They have artificial waves :)). A little bit of tan, a ride on a river, where you are pushed by the water. If most of the way it's in slow-motion, before the finish there is a slide. For the pros that slide is low level but for me it was too much. The nicest part of this was that I ended up under an aquarium with sharks :)). The other attractions of the park were to high level, so no thanks!
They found that in Adeje there should be a beach club with heated swimming pool, so we went to check out that one. As I was suspecting, the water was not that warm but we stayed anyway. Because the weather was not so good (a little bit cloudy and windy) the entrance was free. We were the last ones to go. We caught the sunset here. The place had a nice view with the swimming pool on the edges.
After that we went back to the usual place, that Irish pub. Tonight was singing the same player from  two nights ago. I think I was the youngest person in the room, the average age was 45+. I am impressed they all still have the energy to enjoy life and good music. Cheers to that!

Bustling Ho Chi Minh City & tranquil Mekong Delta

  My 3 weeks itinerary through Vietnam ends in Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) or Saigon (as the locals know it). I had 2 days and a half to spend here. Here I met again with Leroy, who got to the city one day before me and left one day before I. From Mui Ne I took another bus to reach the big city. As I mentioned before, buses are the most convenient way to travel. If you arrange it through your hotel/hostel the bus will come and pick you up from there. Usually I prefer traveling by train because I can read and stretch my legs whenever I want, but during my stay in Vietnam I got to enjoy the conversations that you can have in the bus. On the bus to HCMC I met a woman who is teaching English to staff of a resort in Mui Ne. She wasn't a teacher but she did this for the past years, traveling around and teaching locals basic English. She was finding these opportunities through , a website who connects travellers who like to travel and do volunteer work in the place

Stories from Hamburg

Lately I've heard a lot about Hamburg, how awesome it is and I was curious to see it with my own eyes. Being in Berlin these days, was the perfect moment to do it. I bought train tickets and here I am in a train going to Hamburg. With my book, enjoying a 2h train ride  The weather was not favorable to me, but I still have all my fingers. I must say, the rainy day enhanced the colors of this city. I was not kidding about the cold It took me a few time to get used with the temperature, but after that I forgot it was cold. I had set in mind to see the canals. I came here for that. I read some articles about this and I was impressed. It's said that it has more than Venice or Amsterdam. From what I've seen, it looks a lot with both of them, but on a different scale. If in the two cities mentioned the buildings are not so tall, here we find massive constructions. #wanderlust #urbanphotography #enthusiastictraveller A post shared by Madalina G. (@gmadalina92)

Beach life: Nha Trang & Mui Ne

Leaving behind Da Lat, the city of eternal spring, I went to Nha Trang, a high-rise, high-energy beach resort. The city enjoys a stunning setting: it's ringed by a necklace of hills with a turquoise bay dotted by tropical islands.   From Da Lat to Nha Trang I took a bus and it took me ~4h to get to my destination. Buses are the most convenient way of moving around. Most of the times they pick you up from your hotel and drop you off to the next one.  The road from Da Lat to Nha Trang meanders through the hills. The scenery is quite spectacular. I'm happy I didn't have any breakfast before this ride. Beside the zigzag road, the Vietnamese drive like crazy, overtaking cars in forbidden spots. On the minibus I met two women who were stopping in Nha Trang for a couple of hours on their way to Hoi An. We started chatting and spent the afternoon together. When travelling solo it's easy to meet other people, although I'm an introvert and for me it's not that easy as it
