Traveling is the only thing you buy that makes you richer

Hey there dear like minded explorer 👋🏻

My name is Phil and traveling is my passion. I studied ‘Innovation, Marketing and Tourism’ and I feel that the world is my home. After many years of work and study experience abroad, I speak five languages and gained intercultural competences. Especially Latin America fascinated me and I fell in love with the vibrant and colorful continent.

I am blessed with all the experiences I could make in the last years. One day I thought to write some of the most distinct memories down to support other travelers who were looking for information, guidance or help. Welcome to my blog!

My favorite travel destinations in Latin America


So far, I visited Ecuador twice in my life. The first time was in 2014 and I had the joy of visiting the coastal area of Guayaquil and the Galapagos Islands. Three years later, I was happy to spend three months in Quito in the middle of the world. I would have loved to spend more time there but wasn’t allowed to stay longer. Why?


In total, I was living for more than one year in the Peruvian capital of Lima. They are not only famous for their world’s best gastronomic cuisine, but also for their tourist destinations. For every traveler, the Andean country of Peru is a definite MUST VISIT. And you should consider it, too.

Dominican Republic

Loud, tumultuous, vibrant music, and tasty fruits. Welcome to the capital of the Caribbean, welcome to the Dominican Republic! In total, I could spend 20 months in the most populated country of the Caribbean and wrote the majority of all articles of my blog about this country. Luckily, the Dominican Republic has so much more to offer than All-Inclusive-Hotels in Punta Cana. You want to find out what else?


One of the most isolated and unknown countries in Latin America, but blessed with ancient history, indigenous culture, and warm-hearted characters. Luckily, I could spend almost four months in Paraguay and learned much about their thrilling Guarani culture. Came as a stranger and left as a fan of this landlocked country.
