    Moeraki Boulders: Are These Alien Eggs?

    The Moeraki Boulders are one of the strangest geological stone formations I ever saw. It looks almost like some aliens landed on a beach and left behind some of their eggs to prepare for a future invasion of the earth. Is this the "Invasion of the Body Snatchers"???

    Seychelles, The Paradise Islands: 4 Days as in a Dream

    Rainbows, mango trees, the ocean and flying foxes... I still can not believe that I had seen it all! Luckily, my dear LC-A, Holga and SuperSampler were with me -- and 16 films of sun and happiness prove, that it was real.

    The Sea Swimming Pool of Uturoa

    Going to the swimming pool is always cool, but I don't like it when the place is closed and smelling strong chemicals... open air pools are much better, but the chemicals in the water are still there... and what about an open air swimming pool that is open on the beautiful waters of a logoon? That's what I want to show you now, the open air sea-pool of Uturoa!

  • Boulders Beach, South Africa

    Boulders Beach, South Africa

    Boulders Beach - the African penguins' paradise. Started in 1982 by Adam and Eve of the Penguins, it has grown to about 2200 in recent years. This is partly due to the reduction in commercial pelagic trawling in False Bay, which has increased the supply of pilchards and anchovy, that is so adored by the penguins. They like to eat squid as well. The African penguin is listed in the Red Data Book as an endangered specie.

    Clifton Beach, an urban paradise. Clifton Beach is made up of four coves and the beaches are called First, Second, Third, and Fourth. When the summer south-easter blows, the Clifton beaches are usually well sheltered from the wind but to be honest, it’s great to visit all year round.

    A fish business initiated from a converted bus. First, you see the ocean and hear seagulls. Then, you feel a strong fishy smell. This is it, the Snoekies Fish Market. Founded in Hout Bay sixty years ago, it still serves fresh seafood and “fish and chips” meals in their cafe.

    Camps Bay side, Cape town

    If you are ever in Cape town, and it happens to be a foggy day, and you have no car,here is what you can do. Start in City or Bo-Kaap, go up Kloof Nek Road. It 's always up, about an hour or so, but it's quite picturesque road full of beautiful residential houses, parks and real Chocolate Factory (worth stopping at it's shop for real local made dark chocolate).

    Cascais, Portugal

    Cascais is a little sweet town on the Atlantic Ocean coast, just outside of Lisbon. It takes only 40 minutes by train from Cais do Sodre train station. Return trip costs 1.40 Euro and the view through the train's window is just marvelous. You can literally see how the Grand River Tejo becomes the ocean.
