Not only has it been the first time in my life I’ve lived through a global pandemic, it also was the year our second child was born.

Even though we’re only halfway through November, it is time to look back at 2019 and see that it was not like any of the previous ones.

About 11%, or 1229, were deemed good enough to be showcased in a photobook. 387 panorama’s were created, with roughly 4000 pictures as a basis. These panorama’sContinue reading
Being the only guest in a lodge certainly has its advantages, as breakfast is served whenever we feel like it. Today, it was around 07:30. Right after this, we embarked on a small boat for yet another boat safari on the river system. Caño Negro is a swampy area right next to a lagune which almost completely drains during theContinue reading
Our only full day at Tongariro National Park, and the forecast is basically rain with lots of wind. Not so great for a 10 hour walk. We are staying in a place called The Park Traveller’s Lodge, nearly situated in a town called National Park. As you would’ve guessed: the town is very near to the starting point of theContinue reading
