DARWIN, AUSTRALIA: I had the opportunity to visit the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge 2019. The World Solar Challenge is a car race of vehicles mainly powered by photovoltaics. The race always starts in Darwin/Australia in the Northern Territory and leads from north to south through the whole continent from Australia to Adelaide in the south. The route is about 3000 km through the harsh conditions of the continent. The teams consist mainly of students and the vehicles are built and operated by students. In this film there are some impressions of the qualifing on the Darwin race track, the scruitining and the start in the centre of Darwin. Unfortunately I was a bit late for the start and could only see the last two cars starting.
DARWIN, AUSTRALIA: East Point is located northwest of Darwin and is quite a large park. I was looking for some sights that are not too far away. First was a beach that was completely empty. Only one daring person ventured briefly into the water. Here also my understanding problem of Lee Point Beach cleared up, why nobody goes into the water. Between October and May is the season for Jelly Fish, also called Stingers. A contact with those in the water independently from the danger with crocodiles can lead to death. So there was nothing left but a little walk on the beach. Some locals caught fish or collected something or sat on the parking lot and drank beer.
SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA: This video is about a walk through Manly. It starts at the ferry dock, along the main road and finally along the beach to the north. For me it was the first time that I walked to the northern end of the beach. Then I walked up a small hill and finally to another beach. This time I had no desire to tell anything. Therefore there is also no voice but only the impressions of Manly.
SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA: In this video I show you a trip from the suburb Zetland to the center at the bus stop Museum and on to the Botanical Garden. After a walk through the garden I go to the Sydney Opera and on to the Circular Quay. The video was taken in October 2019 and unfortunately it was not purely sunny.
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.
SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA: The video is about a flight from Sydney SYD to Darwin DRW in Australia in October 2019. The domestic flight took off from Terminal 3 south over Botany Bay. A little further south we flew a bend in a northwesterly direction to Darwin. At the beginning of the flight I explain some sights and peculiarities during the impressive flight over Botany Bay. The flight then took place over the Blue Mountains towards the city of Dubbo and further over the red outback of New South Wales and the Northern Territory. The landing took place around noon at the Darwin International Airport DRW.
