Moments You Never Forget

TRAVEL Moments You Never Forget …

I confess, I didn’t make the journey myself, but I visited the boat. A beautiful vessel, equipped in luxurious splendor, and steaming a unique route – along the Cbobe river in Botswana, just a few kilometers away from the convergence point with Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe! This is a tour through raw African wilderness, you … Weiterlesen »

LIFE Moments You Never Forget … (No. 17)

We had planned to go to the Himalayan kingdoms of Sikkim and Bhutan, but it wasn’t easy then. You had to have a permission and 200 people only got it every year. But Heinrich Harrer, teacher and friend of the Dalai Lama, had connections, travelled ahead and got the permissions for us. And the moment … Weiterlesen »

ANIMALS Moments You Never Forget … (No. 46)

I didn’t believe it until I saw it. And before I saw it for the first time, I read about it – in the entertaining book „Delagoa Bay“, written in 1891 by the English lady Rose Monteiro. That’s what she wrote, living near what is now Maputo, the capital of Mozambique in East Africa: „I … Weiterlesen »

RESTAURANTS Moments You Never Forget (45)

A restaurant has a dining room and a kitchen. Yes, that’s how we are used to eat. Sometimes, let‘s say in Japan, Greece, Italy or at McDonald’s you can’t draw a line between the two. And in the celebrated restaurant „Moli d’en Bou“ in Sa Coma on the Balearic island of Majorca /Mallorca you have … Weiterlesen »

ADVENTURE Moments You Never Forget (No. 47)

It’s called the „Camino del Rey“ – the King’s Way. Because they claim that the Spanish king Alfonso XIII. walked it in 1921. What a brave man! Today it’s much tougher to conquer this 3 km or 1,8 mi long walk along  sheer rockcliff, often 200 m or 600 feet above a gorge called „El … Weiterlesen »

ANIMALS (?) Moments you Never Forget (No. 44)

Luckily, my headline is wrong – there won’t be an unforgettable moment, because it is extremely unlikely that you will ever encounter this monster: Nemopilema nomurai! The giant jellyfisch in Japanese waters. A citizen of the ocean whose body might exceed two meters or 6,5 feet in length and width. It’s so heavy, they say … Weiterlesen »

TOILETS Moments You Will Never Forget (No. 38)

A lot of dirty jokes come to my mind, looking at this picture! Three trom- bones used as urinals. They even say there is a mecha- nism which produ- ces pitches and tones, according to the height and the pressure of the tinkle. I doubt it, because when I used one the instru- ments were … Weiterlesen »

HIDEAWAYS Moments You Never Forget (No. 61)

You need a place to escape from the cruelties of the world? Or a hideaway with your new love? I tell you: When I came through Crianlarich for the first time, fly-fishing with Prince Charles in the Dochart and Jubhair rivers, it was he who pointed to the huts on a still snow-covered slope of … Weiterlesen »

TOURS Moments You Never Forget (No. 42)

Jeff Mulandzi had the idea. A very nice guy who grew up in Johannesburg’s worst suburb, Alexandra, and decided to connect the unexpected: Tourists on hired bikes and his fellow South African, living in this slum. Impossible because too dangerous? One would think so but not Jeff. He founded his enterprise, talked to the people … Weiterlesen »

POLICE Moments You Never Forget (No. 40)

It happened in Dubai – where else? On the road through the desert to the Al Ain oasis. I wasn’t speeding, I hadn’t done anything. Then a lightning appeared on the horizon behind me, a white and green shadow passed and brought me to a stop with screeching tyres: Dubai Police in a Lamborghini „Aventator“! … Weiterlesen »
