“Ooooh, wat leuk, een dochtertje!!! Gefeliciteerd! Maar dan is het zeker wel voorbij met die verre reizen?” Ik sta er van te kijken hoe vaak we deze opmerking hebben gehad. Is het dan echt zo gek om met een kleintje op reis te gaan?
“BUUUUURRRB”. There’s a rumble from the deepest parts of my desert ship. Until now the ride was without problems, but with sounds like these I fear the worst. As expected the sounds are accompanied by the aroma of semi-digested grass. This is however just a minor inconvenience. The beauty of this moroccan sand desert is overwhelming.
While travelling I usually don’t stay at the same location for more than a few days. There is so much to see in the world, I don’t take much more time than that. And honestly, in most cases I’ve already seen the best of a place in that time. The hunger for something new gets too big and I get restless and have to move on. Sometimes however a place gets to you: you don’t want to leave. This is what Koh Tao in Thailand did to me. It grabbed me and (almost) didn’t let me go.
After two weeks of travelling through Thailand on my own I’m back home again. It’s been an awesome two weeks, in which I’ve seen so many beautiful places, did so many exciting things, and met so many nice people. I’ve been diving at beautiful Koh Tao, been walking through the lush jungle of Khao Sok, seen the beautiful ruins of Sukhothai, heard the sad stories of the abused elephants at the elephant rescue center. I’ve been chatting with Buddhist monks, been spotting wild elephants and monkeys in Khao Yai and got scammed by tuktuk drivers in Bangkok. I will tell you all about this at a later time. For now, I hope you enjoy this short compilation of my last two weeks. More pictures and stories will follow shortly.
Little while back we told you about flying with a float plane. A wonderful experience, which was even better then I could have imagined. Now, pictures and stories are nice of course, but we have the intention of making some movies of our travels. So, instead of pictures, this time you get to see one of our little movies of flying …
Canada’s west coast is vast, wild and thinly populated. No wonder there are only few roads. Some places can only be reached by air or water. A float plane is a relatively quick way to get almost anywhere. If there’s water that is. It’s a means of transportation typical to this area.
When photographing wild animals, you’re always dependant on the willingness of the animal to pose for the camera. This magnificent bald eagle dissappointed us at first but later more than made up for his earlier behaviour.
If you wish to see wildlife, Canada is the place to be. With an enormous amount of wilderness it is the place to go and search for the impressive grizzly or the shy moose. There is however one animal that I wished to see more than any other: the orca whale, or killer whale. De size, beautiful markings and intelligent …
“No, don’t touch that bag. I’ll get it myself.” I feel like Gollem, from Lord of the Rings. No one can see that ring. It’s mine. My precious. I’ve been guarding it for a few weeks now. With succes, because she didn’t notice anything. At least, that’s what I hope. The entire trip I’ve been looking for THE moment… but …
