Kenting and the Southernmost Point of Taiwan

Asia, nature

Scooters are the way to go in Kenting National Park ( 墾丁) – the best way to explore the coast is to cruise around and stop at the scenic spots. Swimming and lounging at the beach would have been more pleasurable if there weren’t so many mosquitos lying in wait…

Blue Grotto and Dingli Cliffs – getting closer to nature in South Malta

Europe, nature

South Malta has a lot to offer – the rugged coast has a wild beauty that is hard to miss. Walking on top of Dingli Cliffs is a very rewarding pastime. The famous Blue Grotto can only be reached via boat from Wied iż-Żurrieq, a small harbour and one of the few places in South Malta suitable for sea access. The bus stop on top of the hill offers a stunning view from above overlooking the grotto.

Roses are red, cabbage is blue

Europe, food, nature

It is fall again in Heidelberg and I stumbled across some photogenic veggies in the fields. Gigantic cabbage roses with some traces of the recent rain beat non-edible flowers anytime, non? With the temperature dropping rapidly (2°C this morning) the season of hearty stews and winter veggies is approaching fast. The last remains of your summer salad still remind us of a summer gone. The neatly planted rows of reds and greens seem like a well-groomed English garden. Never thought lettuce could be this elegant!
