Since 2013 I travel together with Marcelle around the world. Finding hidden treasures at the unbeaten trails is where we aim for. We are still discovering best ways to travel cheaply to be able to live our dream. It's working out quite well up to now. We share our experiences as house sitters and travelers on our websites and hope for a lively exchange with other travelers.
We were fortunate enough to see a pack of wild dogs during our visit in Kruger National Park, South Africa, not only one time but three times in a row. Enjoy the pictures and learn some details about this magnificent animal.
Wild dogs in Kruger National Park are in my opinion one of the most magnificent carnivores. Although numbers are scarce we were lucky enough to see one pack three times within a few days. Their looks and movements fascinated me for hours while they accepted our vicinity with indifference. Continue reading “Wild Dogs Of Kruger National Park, South Africa”
After a suffocating 40 degree heat for the past week it was with much relief to see this storm approaching. Little did we know how frightening and dangerous such storms can get.
Camping under a tree is not the best place to be and so we were soon scuttling off to the safety of the ablution block, where we watched as the storm sped over us.
Not much rain fell but we did find much needed relief from the heat for a short while.
South Africa, Northern Cape, Kgalagadi
Orange sunset light trapped in the impending cloud of the approaching thunderstorm, contrasting with the innocent blue of the earlier serene sky.
Zelten In der Kgalagadi
Nach einer Woche drückender Hitze von rund 40° Celcius, war die Erleichterung gross, diesen herannahenden Sturm zu beobachten. Wenig wussten wir, wie beängstigend und gefährlich sich ein solches Unwetter entwickelnd kann.
Unter einem Baum zu zelten ist unter diesen Umständen nicht der geeignetste Ort. Deshalb rannten wir rasch zum Waschraum, von wo wir das über uns hinwegziehendes Donnerwetter in Sicherheit beobachten konnten.
Wir fanden Linderung von der Hitze für eine Weile, der Regen blieb jedoch weitgehend aus.
Südafrika, Nordkap, Kgalagadi
Oranges Licht des Sonnenuntergangs erscheint gefangen in einer herannahenden, drohenden Gewitterwolke und kontrastiert mit dem unschuldigen Blau des klaren Himmels von bevor.
Best place to visit for Cheetah and Lion sightings is the Kgalagadi Transfrontier National Park. A game park full of wildlife in the semi-desert of South Africa and Botswana (formerly called Kalahari Gemsbok National Park), souring hot and unforgivably harsh.
Why do I sit in a car when its 40+ degrees with no shade to speak of for hours on end?!
Motorcycles on the road frighten the bejesus out of me! – Thoughts of a life-loving car driver about bikers and their cherished speed.
What is it about motor bikers that they always seem to want to go as fast as possible? I recently read about a guy in England who got busted doing 167km/h and I commented that he should be locked up.Continue reading “Motorcycle In The Back Mirror”
After half a year in the UK I dare to reveal some of my discoveries about the English and the Scots.
#scotland #england #visitscotland
Its 7.30am and I am out on my first walk in the English countryside with the two dogs. Coming towards me is an old Gentleman who is also out with his dog. He says to me in passing ‘going to be a luvely day today’!Continue reading “Mad Scots And Crazy Englishman”
Traveling the World as Grey World Nomads we are looking for the beauty of countries and their wildlife. But sometimes we stumble over dreadful truths of environmental issues which leave us flabbergasted and deeply shocked. We write also about these unpleasant facts as they may affect us and our kids sooner or later.
Traveling through one of the most gorgeous of England’s countrysides of the Lake District we reached the lovely west-coast holiday village at Saint Bees. Unfortunately only a couple of days into our stay we stumbled over a skeleton in the closet of England, hidden just around the corner. We were sleeping next to worlds worst nuclear dumpsite – Sellafield United Kingdom.
