(Day 3 on the road)
I am on the road again - more than 11 years after my last sabbatical ended. And boy, it does feel good! Between 2008 and 2011, I travelled across many parts of Asia, Australia & New Zealand, Central America and India. This time, I am looking at a 12-months trip around (mainly) South America.
Originally planned for two years ago, Covid has delayed my plans just slightly. But now I have finally started, and I couldn’t be happier. They say that anticipation is sweet, and it certainly was in this case.
A lot of flights to Latin America are going via Madrid, so that's where I am starting my trip. The first order of business was getting a proper and thorough haircut - having almost no hair makes things just so much easier. The rest of my time I spent exploring the city, including its two world-famous museums, the Prado and the Reina Sofia. It was my first time in Madrid, and when leaving after just three days, I was thinking I could have easily spent a few more days in this atmospheric city.
However, the Caribbean is calling, and my flight to
Santo Domingo - the capital of the Dominican Republic - was scheduled to leave soon, so off I was.
Next stop: Santo Domingo (Dominican Republic). To view my photos, have a look at pictures.beiske.com.
