GERMANY, SWITZERLAND, ITALY: Report of a trip from Germany to Aosta Valley in 2019 by car through Switzerland and the Bernhard pass.
DOUES, ITALY: The Valle d’Aosta is a fantastic area in the north of Italy in the middle of the Alps. The valley borders directly on Switzerland and France and has the highest and most beautiful mountains in Europe, Mont Blanc and the Matterhorn. The valley is a wonderful destination for hikes to the peaks of the mountains or for exploring the numerous historical sites dating back to Roman times of over 2000 years ago.
This time we rented a house at 1750m altitude near the village Doues. With only approx. 60$ cost per night this was unbelievably cheap. The house has a unique view to the city of Aosta and is almost completely remote. At the same time, the house is equipped with everything one needs. Unfortunately there is no direct link but the house is the Chez Paolo in Doues (Aosta Valley).
A short film with some impressions from a trip through Namibia. We drove from Windhoek south towards Keetmanshoop and on to Ais-Ais. Then we drove towards the south, through the Fish River Canyon to the west and back to the north, past Rosh Pinah, Aus, through the Namib on the D707 to the north towards Walvis Bay, to Spitzkoppe, through the whole Etosha National Park from west to east, south to the Erongo Plateau and back to Windhoek.
Shortly after the return from Tasmania we thought about where the next vacation could take place. We looked at the world map, but there was not really any country we were interested in. In many countries there are too many negative aspects, which cannot be reconciled with our kind of vacation, i.e. to travel. South America can come later. Besides Antarctica this is the only continent I still miss. Asia is difficult to rent a car and drive.Continue reading “Namibia – Intro”
