Tenerife in more pictures

I took this picture on our way from the airport. Two days later we went back and discovered a nice beach with nice view 
First time when I saw a plane flying over our heads. I didn't know they will fly so close to us
First morning. View from the balcony of the villa. There was a little bit cloudy but the clouds spread out quickly.
A Garfield walking in Adeje. I couldn't resist to take the picture. Here the cats are very fat. They are well fed :)). I wish I could be a cat living in Tenerife. I've heard the cats here have only 7 lives. I could live with that.
Near Playa de Las Teresitas. The stones have graffiti with different characters from different areas: arts, politics. 
Houses on the hills. Somewhere high on the hills there are caves and some huts where people are living. 
Playa de Las Teresitas. Too bad it was cloudy cause the water was perfect for a swim. As I said before, the best sand from any other beach. Soft, pleasant for my feet and toes.
A weird wood sculpture in El Medano.
Playa de Las Vistas. I'm gonna miss wearing sandals. My toes were so happy this week, they were so free
A selfie in sunset light
Things left to do next time:
- hike the Teide volcano till the top (for that I need to apply for the free pass in advance)
- spend more time on the beach
- explore the cities and villages on the coast

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)

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

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
