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.
The night at Hotel Nadia was quite strange. Maybe that was due to the shabby equipment of the room. Somehow there were bedbugs. We drove into the center on the main road, which was called Mohammed V or something like that, as always, directly at the Hotel Royal. Next to the hotel there was a coffee where we had breakfast. We sat down, ordered and somehow waited forever. Such an Omlette and, coffee is now no witchcraft and guests were also hardly there. Finally I had to go in later to pay to speed up the whole thing. Directly opposite there is a Liquor Store. It is somehow not properly hidden, but also not directly recognizable. If someone is looking for it, it is quite directly opposite the Hotel Royal. So about.Continue reading “🇲🇦 2015 Morocco – Day 9 – Ouarzazate / Mhamid”
This time we got up even earlier than usual. Overnight it was really cool in the room. Unfortunately there was no hot water and the toilet had to be flushed with a bucket. Overnight I had to suffer again attacks of bedbugs, which bit me this time clearly. That clouded this actually great hotel a little bit. The day before I had to drive the car next door into a lockable parking lot, although I insisted to leave it at the road. When we were finished there was of course nobody to be seen. We went to the locked gate and I tried to get it open somehow when a hotel hiwi arrived and opened the gate. I was waiting for him to want a dollar, but he did not. So I gave him 20 Dh for the tea from the day before and we left again towards Zagora, because we still had a good distance to Merzouga.Continue reading “🇲🇦 2015 Morocco – Day 10 – Mhamid / Merzouga”
When I finished with the morning toilet the food was already served in the large lounge, which was comfortably equipped with armchairs and sofas. There was jam and for me of course Omlette Frommage. As far as I can remember this was a variant where the triangular cheese was delivered extra. Of course there was also coffee, which meant a very relaxed morning. In the room it was also quite cool and I admired again the effectiveness of the classical clay architecture. After dinner we decided to climb the dune again. So we got ready, which meant that I put a T-shirt in front of my mouth and a hooded jacket over my head. M. took a hat and swimming goggles.Continue reading “🇲🇦 2015 Morocco – Day 11 – Merzouga”
I was once in January 2011 in the Tazi as last night in Morocco, because the Tazi is centrally located and relatively cheap. For the same reasons we wanted to stay there again. But this time we arrived by car. I had to park the car in another parking lot and we walked to the Tazi. They also had a room available, which should cost 420 Dh. We acted down to 400. The price was for two persons and without further ado. We were assigned a greasy guy to pick up the car and unload the luggage. We refused, but went with him to get the car. For the 15 minutes we had to pay there 20 Dh, or we had already paid when we left. The greasy guy planted himself on the passenger seat and opened the window to make himself comfortable.Continue reading “🇲🇦 Review about the “Grand Hotel Tazi Marrakech””
