Antigua- the island of 365 beaches. At least it is said that there is one beach for every day of the year. Antigua is a pretty little island and its so carribean. Lots of beaches, very lush and green and turquois water. As the island is not very big we booked a taxi to take... Continue Reading →
After a completely black christmas it was about time to see some snow. About a one hour drive away is a ski resort, Oberhof. There was so much snow and really winter! We had so much fun and it was just lovely.
Day 64 of our sabbatical was dedicated to Guadeloupe, a French départment in the Carribean. Guadeloupe are actually a couple of islands with two islands, Basse Terre and Grand Terre being the main islands. Our ship anchored in Pointe-a-Pietre. Pointe-a-Pietre is not really pretty and its weird to drive through town as it feels like... Continue Reading →

Our third stop in Latin America was Coata Rica. Costs Rica is beautiful and so lush! Already from the ship it was possible to see the mountains. That day we went kayaking through mangroves. We saw sloths turtles and all kinds of other animals.
Oh Panamá.... what a country. Nowhere we travelled so far we experienced the gap between rich and poor so badly like in Panamá. Especially Colon was a sad town. Run down and dirty. The traffic is also horrible. Too many cars and lots of construction. We headed to the miraflores locks of the Panamá Canal.... Continue Reading →
