I mean … just look at it! There is nature, and then there is NATURE! You are looking at a scene from the Lofoten Islands in Norway – one that was just too stunning. We had to climb from our Rorbu (a traditional fishing hut) onto a little nearby hill for about 10 min. That was enough to be rewarded with stunning views all around. I was rather angry that I cut off that straw ball thingy at the bottom, but the vista still tells you enough. It tells you to pack your bags and book your next flight to the Lofoten Islands!

If you ever cruise along the Nile in Egypt, make sure to keep an eye out left and right. Often you will find groups of young people that gather and wave to you – granted, I wasn’t sure why they would gather where they did, but who am I to know the spots where young hang out these days along the Nile.
New Photo: Can I Interest You In Some Cloth
While shipping across the Nile in Egypt, little boats would pull up alongside our boat. Note, that our boat was around 8 meters high – those boats … were not. So they would pull up, pull out anything from headscarves to carpets, ask (screamingly) if anyone is interested – and if they even slightly assume that you or anyone else that’s looking is interested, they’d pack the object in a plastic bag, seal it, and literally throw it up onto the deck of our boat. You are then expected to remove the item from the bag, place the money in the bag, and throw the bag back down.
Some of the people we traveled with didn’t have any interest – but found a bag at their feet either way. They felt guilty that the guy went through all the trouble and bought some scarves – at least you will always remember where you bought them! Also, props to the aiming skills!

The Koenigssee (King Lake) is one of the more beautiful lakes I have visited. You can’t see much of it on foot, but once you take a boat you get to the really scenic views. This shot is taken from a boat – showing the opposite traffic on the water hehe. The autumn colours in …

During a little Austria trip, we stopped between Munich and Fussen at the so-called ‘Eibsee’. It’s a cute little lake surrounded by forest – and it’s just big enough that you can walk around it in 2-3 hours. It was freezing and we got lost in the woods, but worth the effort! By the way, …
