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: 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.
A scientific conference with two lectures brought me to the USA for the eighth time. In the meantime I had already learned something about the USA and wanted to make a longer round trip.Continue reading “🇺🇸 2015 USA Intro”
Actually this trip had been planned differently, but R. jumped in to briefly explore Egypt. The flight to Cairo departed around 0100 from Berlin Tempelhof airport, where we had parked the car somewhere nearby. That was of course quite a stupid time for a flight to get somewhere. The flight lasted about 4 hours and went over Eastern Europe and then always along the Nile. Although it was dark, it looked quite interesting from above with all the lights and roads. The entry procedure consisted of some fee, the delivery of a photo and something that was attached to the perso. Outside we were picked up by someone and taken to the hotel. On the drive through the whole of Cairo one saw again and again entrenched guards on the streets and at the corners.Continue reading “🇪🇬 2009 Egypt – Day 1 – Cairo”
Around 0600 I was woken up with the remark that my alarm clock had been ringing for an hour. I talked something about the phone in my pocket and turned off the alarm clock. At least I thought so, because it started again after 5 minutes and I had to be woken up again. Around 0930 I woke up from the loud snoring in the room. Meanwhile the others were there and made a lot of sleeping noise. I went briefly to the bathroom to the morning toilet and then went to not waste time unnecessarily by sleeping. So I went out onto the road and turned right in the direction of Gracia. Simply on foot the streets halfway straight ahead direction Park Güell. What I hadn’t expected was that it went steeper and steeper uphill. Shortly in a supermarket to get juice. Sometime shortly before Park Güell it went really steep, but this was practically supported by escalators. I’ve probably never seen escalators in the middle of town to climb a slope. Very practical. A lot of people moved in the park. Right at the beginning there was also a good overview of the city up to the horizon, where there was only sea. In the park there were the usual Tandler with jewellery and stuff spread out on blankets. Without noticing them I went uphill to some brick thing.Continue reading “🇪🇸 2010 Barcelona – Day 2”
At some point we decided to make a detour to Alexandria. The only option is the train, which is why we started early on our way to the station. Coming from Gizah we took the bus which brought us directly to the station. In the station there was a ticket counter and somehow we could make ourselves understandable and got two tickets for the next train to Alexandria. The train waited already at the track so that we could get on after a cigarette break immediately. Sometime the train departed and went forever through Cairo and the suburbs of Cairo along the Nile delta to the north to the coast.Continue reading “🇪🇬 2009 Egypt – Day 2 – Alexandria”
We got up again pretty early to see something. Somehow we had the idea to drive to Al Fayum, but I don’t know if we decided to do it in the evening or spontaneously after leaving the hotel when we saw the minibuses at one corner. In retrospect it seems to me that we had done this quite spontaneously. Not far from our hotel in direction south was a big roundabout in which many such small buses stopped. At the roundabout there was of course also again such a MG contactor position.Continue reading “🇪🇬 2009 Egypt – Day 3 – El Fayoum”
I got up again around 0800. The night had become quite cold, especially in a room where there was no heating. I hadn’t really expected that. In the quite clear hotel was already quite a lot going on and the noise from inside came to that from outside still in addition. First I checked out again at the old slow Zausel at the reception and went a few meters to the left of the Royal to have the usual breakfast. Strong milky coffee fairy with an omelette. While I sat there comfortably at the street and looked around with cigarettes and coffee in the area I saw opposite a car rental, which brought me on the thought to ask nevertheless times for the prices.Continue reading “🇲🇦 2011 Morocco – Day 11 – Zagora / Mhamid”
