About Me

Standing on an active volcano in Nicaragua

Hola! Thank you for visiting my page and your interest in me. I'm Marc from Germany. On this page you can find some stories of my trip to Latinamerica. You can read them in English, German and Spanish.

It was always my dream to travel to this magical subcontinent and after I got my masters's degree I finally made it come true! Initially I intended to spend 5 months there but I ended up not using my return flight and staying for 13 months in total.
My trip wasn't organized at all and very spontaneous - unusual for a German. I just knew that I will start my journey in Mexico and end it in Brazil - that's all!

Anyways, 13 months later I had visited all 17 Latin American countries on the mainland (excluded Venezuela and the 3 Guianas). Most of the time I've travelled solo, sometimes with fellow travelers. In some countries I already had local friends who were one of the reasons for my visit to Latinamerica.

It was one of my Brazilian friends who gave me nickname LatinoGerman Well I already spoke more Spanish than German during my trip and have a Latino-like easy life attitude. So people started asking me if I am from Argentina or Brazil. However, at the latest on the dance floor, people could see from my stiff hip movements that I am German after all haha.
