We had planned our trip to the Lofoten already for 2020. But due to the pandemic it had to be postponed twice. In 2022 it finally happened. We first drove some 850 km by car from Tromsø via Narvik to Bodø and then sailed 315 nautical miles (or 585 km) with the S/Y Anne-Margaretha from […]
Trip to Chiloé and Puelo
After our failed attempt to visit Chiloé island during the pandemic in 2020 we gave it another try in December 2021. This time we had no problems to reach the island and to move into our El Palafito cabin which is beautifully located at the entrance of the Paildad sound. The terrace of the cabin […]
Road trip to Visviri
We took the opportunity of the flowering desert in October 2021 for a long 5827km road trip to the North of Chile. After visiting our friends in El Molle we enjoyed the colours of the flowers between Huasco, Bahía Inglesa and Copiapó. Not as impressive as during the previous event in 2017 – but still […]
Puma tracking in Torres del Paine
After more than 25 years of travelling in Chile and not having seen a single puma, we decided to join a puma-tracking expedition in the Torres del Paine National Park and the adjacent Estancia Goic in the Chilean Patagonia known to host the largest population of pumas in South America.
Safari through Northern Tanzania
After our first trip to Southern Africa in 2012 we always wanted to explore another part of Africa. Our choice fell on Tanzania not least because of the famous Serengeti National Park with whose pictures and documentaries we grew up and which shaped our picture of Africa. In February we traveled for 19 days with our guide Sebastian […]
Sailing the channels of Patagonia with the S/Y Anne-Margaretha
The only way to explore the channels, fjords and islands of western Patagonia is by sea. This (southern) autumn we sailed in 25 days 1629 nautical miles (3017 km) from Ushuaia in Argentina to Puerto Montt in Chile with the S/Y Anne-Margaretha.

New gallery from Laguna del Laja added

New picture gallery from Spitsbergen (Svalbard) published
Eventually I was able to prepare and publish the picture gallery from our circumnavigation of Spitsbergen with the Schooner bark Antigua in July 2013. We spent three exciting but also relaxing weeks sailing along the coastlines of Spitsbergen, exploring the islands and shores through extended hikes, and watch the fauna and flora of the arctic.
