SARRE, ITALY: Castle Sarre has a long history dating back to the 13th century. The castle is situated on a small hill not far from the town of Aosta and overlooks the Aosta Valley. The castle was summer residence of the royal family Savoy of Italy until the middle of the 20th century. Today rooms with an authentic interior can be visited. The castle was used as a place for hunting trips to the nearby mountains and has a room with impressive hunting trophies.
Litchfield National Park is located about 100 km south of Darwin in the Northern Territory of Australia. The park has numerous rivers, waterfalls and pools in an almost untouched unique Australian landscape. Unlike the Kakadu National Park, there are hardly any crocodile hazards and the park is much easier to reach. Visiting the park is free and numerous signs provide information about the sights, including maps. Basically, it is also possible to camp in the park at certain designated places.
DARWIN, AUSTRALIA: On the search for further sights around Darwin I drove to the East Point. East Point is a bit north of Darwin and is a long beach. The beach was completely empty despite high temperatures in water and air, which raised some questions why. I knew about the dangers of crocodiles but nevertheless it seemed quite strange to me. Later I met a woman who explained to me that nobody actually goes into the water there, because the danger from crocodiles and especially from nettle jellyfish (stingers) is too great. Unfortunately there is an excellent beach with best equipment but no possibility to swim, although the water has almost bath tub temperature.
DARWIN, AUSTRALIA: This video is about a visit to the Botanical Garden Darwin/Northern Territory Australia in October 2019. I noticed the botanical garden while searching for some sights in and around Darwin. The garden is directly in the city of Darwin and easy to reach by car. I visited the garden in the afternoon on a weekday. During this time I met almost no people, which was probably due to the high temperatures at this time of day. At the beginning of the visit I thought that the garden only covered the part for the native Australian plants. I had only seen this part of the map and thought it was the whole botanical garden. Later I saw my mistake and found out that the garden is really big and diverse. For example there is a part for rainforest but also a community garden.
DARWIN, AUSTRALIA: A few hours before the video I arrived in Darwin/NT. Looking for some sights I talk about the first impressions of Darwin during a walk through the Charles Darwin National Park.

DOUES, ITALY: For the way from Aosta to our house near Doues at 1800m altitude we had to drive down and up this way every day. The temperature drops significantly by up to 10 degrees Celsius due to the difference in altitude. However, the route and the landscape are unique and not boring.
