Cocky as I am I thought this one would be completely overrated…. NOT!
I live in the Haspengouw area in the East of Belgium. It is known for growing apples and pears, its rolling landscape and its lively village life. Here are some impressions of the last months.
Next stop on our all day boat trip: Fingal’s cave at Staffa Island. Another item on my bucket list. Check!
Still on Lunga. My friend comes back from a hike with my son, while I was with my daughter gazing at the puffins. A little hike away thousands of birds on one rock!
This was absolutely one of the highlights of the trip, something that I had looked forward to for a very long time: hanging out with the puffins on the Isle of Lunga. Surreal place.
This one was also on my list for a long time: Monument Valley. This Arizona road trip really covers a lot of bucket list items… The scenic driveway is a road according to the plan. Yes, but rather a dirt road.
You only understand how vast and desolate Arizona is when you cross from West to East, from Page to Monument Valley. Grand Canyon to Page is nothing compared to that. Absolute nothingness. Desolate desert with bushes. Cars passing by going somewhere, not sure where.
As it was “on my way” I visited the Navajo National Monument. Not a big park but interesting settlement in a large cave in a steep wall. There were a few other visitors, but not many. I walked the trail towards the outlook of the settlement. There was something weird. I stopped walking. All sounds […]
Yesterday Taylor our guide told us that the morning light is actually better, you get more contrast and more color, especially the blue color. But the morning times are also more busy… I tried my luck and was back at 7 am in front of the gate, together with a bunch of other people.
When you are in Page, you need to go and look at the Horseshoe Bend. Obviously. So, I did. Some say the best sequence of activities in the area is starting with Lower Antelope Canyon in the morning, then go look at Horseshoe Bend and end up at Lake Powel.
