Butterfly Garden Key West

Posted by Susanna On February - 5 - 2011

There is a butterfly garden in Key West as well and since I love butterflies I needed to go… Everywhere hundreds of butterflies and some tiny birds. It is a wonderful place and at the belonging shop they even restore butterflies so you could hang them in your room. My friends had given me that big butterfly in Ecuador but it was not good enough for being restored. Too bad….

Jungle ride

Posted by Susanna On January - 27 - 2011

After one day back in Puerto Jiminez my new friends left yesterday and I had come back to the jungle. I had organized a horseback ride today. What the great thing about it was is that I could go by myself without guides for just US$5 an hour! I was so happy since I love to do things on my own sometimes. Horse rides with guides are usually boring since one is not allowed to do things different than the guide wants and also the horses are mostly spoiled. My horse this time was perfect! We were enjoying a ride for three hours! I went first up into the rain forest observing tucans and macaws. Suddenly I was witnessing a cow giving birth – great! Everywhere blue morpho butterflies danced in the twilight and I heard exotic noises. I went up to a hill and could even see the ocean. Partly my horse and I were followed by a younger horse what was quite amusing. Ohhh I enjoyed these hours. When I came back down to give back my horse I realized I had 30min more so I decided to go a bit faster in a different direction. And what a surprise – this horse was not at all tired! It was running as no other horse I ever rented did. Amazing. So far that was my best horseback ride while traveling!

What waterfall?

Posted by Susanna On January - 24 - 2011

Today I got up very early in the morning since my friend Ruth and I wanted to do a quick hike to the waterfall. We did and saw numerous bird, macaws and frogs. Even a few snakes. But when we reached the river we could not find any waterfall. So Disappointing! But when we came back to the lodge people told us where the actual waterfall was. So we basically missed it!! Too funny. We left around noon back to Puerto Jiminez. While we made it to the pickup van right in time (Even though one of the new friends had some issues – that is what happens when you travel with more than yourself.) we waited for ages for the bus… Public transport is just not that reliable here than in Europe!

Pura Vida in Costa Rica

Posted by Susanna On January - 22 - 2011

After border crossing yesterday this was my first day in Costa Rica. Since I don’t have much time (10days) until my flight to Miami I just want to spend as much time as possible at a nice spot not traveling in buses. So I had heard of the Corcovado National Park supposedly the area with the highest biodiversity on earth. At least this is what National Geographic said. I am staying at ‘The Corner – La Isquina’ hostel with Ronnie and his family. They were excellent people and my friend and I could even cook in their kitchen. Later Ronnie went with us to the swamps for feeding the crocodiles. It was like at Isla Parida feeding the caymans. Most crocodiles were similar seize but one was massive. Another small one missed already a part of its tail, a leg, an eye and looked totally scared over. We observed as well various types of birds. Since it was still raining there was not as much time to explore outside.

Bye bye 2010!

Posted by Susanna On December - 31 - 2010

Ohhhh, how fast this year 2010 went by… It just had started. And now it is already over. Sometimes I really have the feeling that it all passes by faster with age… I had a great year with very happy and very sad moments. I hope the best for the upcoming year 2011 for all my friends and I! What I did today? I went for a walk with Todd at Casco Viejo and later for a photo excursion in the Panama Zoo to take pictures of the harpy eagle which is the biggest eagle in the world. When we saw the eagle it was far away and secretly I wished somebody to come out and feed it so it would come closer… And guess what? Somebody did! So I was able to do the following photos. In addition I’ve seen the jaguar and the tapir. Animals I wanted to spot in the wild in the amazon but were not able too… In the evening I went with friends I had met in the hostel to dinner at the Casablanca restaurant as a warm up for the long new years night.

Zoo Baños

Posted by Susanna On December - 13 - 2010

Since I had never seen a real condor flying in the wild I decided to check out the zoo of Baños. And I was lucky! The three condors were easy to photograph even though I found their cages way too small…

Kin Kin and Casa Amarilla

Posted by Susanna On December - 8 - 2010

Today I left Casa Amarilla mircette birth control buy and therefore it is time to at least introduce that beautiful place in the mountains. The place is owned by Jorge and his lovely wife and daughter. The lady is a great cook – I loved her Ecuadorian food (Mostly I don’t like it in Ecuador.). It is small but so cozy that you don’t want to leave. The view is great over Baños. You better reach it with horse because hiking up with backpacks might be a just too much of a mission. The garden is lovely – so many different flowers and butterflies. But best of all at this place you can watch birds like hummingbirds and the kin kin! It is difficult to take pictures of them but I took a few…

Breakfast with hummingbird

Posted by Susanna On December - 2 - 2010

Today started with a breakfast at the WunderBar. While eating my fruit salad I observed a hummingbird outside the windows. I did some photos what was kind of difficult since the bird is very fast. After that I decided to see the view archeological sites like the Ruinas de Todos Santos and the ruins of the Inca city called Tomebamba. The archeological park is wonderful. Not that much the ruins but the garden and the various Ecuadorian birds.

Finally Flamingos

Posted by Susanna On October - 19 - 2010

I was so tired today that I slept in. Around 11:00am I decided to make a visit at the near by Tortoise breeding station because I didn’t wanted to make a big excursion somewhere for today. The way to the station was quite lovely with all these paths through the wilderness alongside some sort of lakes where I could observe a few flamingos. I haven’t seen them on my boats cruise so therefore I was more than happy to take a few shots… How pretty they are with there pink feathers which get the color through their food…
At the breeding station I was the only visitor and I just loved to watch these little tortoise babies walking somewhat clumsy over each other.

North Seymour

Posted by Susanna On October - 12 - 2010

North Seymour got a frigate bird colony which we visited this morning. Everywhere one see these bird sitting in the trees. Some male showed off with there bright colorful red throats to impress the females. In between you can observe the fluffy chicks. On North Seymour I saw the only free land iguanas of my trip. Unfortunately it was so early that there were still sleeping since they need the sun to become active.
Today ends the official part of my Galapagos trip. It is time to relax now without any guides and to explore the beautiful islands on my own…
Thank you all for your support in the voting in May 2010 to gave me the chance to fulfill my dream to travel to Galapagos. It was by far the best trip I ever did probably because I wished for it for soooooo long. Now I will write down everything to raise awareness for the endangered animals in Galapagos because they need our help and protection. Hope you gonna support me again on my way….
