Not much words needed, the pictures of this beautiful environment speak for their own. Enjoy it and stay tuned for some more prosaic posts in the future...

Rhine Falls, Switzerland


The Rhine Falls is one of the 3 biggest waterfalls in Europe. This year the water level is very low for this time of the year, a consequence of this hot and dry summer (about which I don't want to complain).

Usually the amount of water flowing down in the summer time is about 600 m3/s (~158'500 gal/s)  and 250 m3/s (~66'000 gal/s) in the winter time. During this visit it was just 190 m3/s (50'200 gal/s).

Luckily I was there early enough to avoid the big crowds of tourists and I walked some quiet paths along the River Rhine when more and more busses arrived.

Enjoy the pictures and let me take you to a virtual trip to the Rhine Falls... a designated smoking spot with a great view...

The resurrection of this blog


Yes, it was silent here for  a long time but I think it is time to bring back some life in this blog.

Maybe in the first steps more like a picture story than a real report, but hey: that will be better than nothing...

Stay tuned, something should go online within the next days...

2017 in pictures


It's time to sum up another year with some nice pictures... many good memories are connected to those. As always it's really hard to reduce all the pix of one month down to one... a click on the picture'll bring you to the corresponding report... this year there are only 4 pics, as I stopped posting (temporarily) in April...

  • January
A visit to.... Laphroaig
  • February
Surf'n'Turf Burger
  • March
Whisky ad... rack of lamb

  • April
Pirates of the Caribbean

03/24 - 04/08 - Pirates of the Caribbean


It was something that we'd on mind since a long time and last year we decided to book a cruise in the Carribean Sea with Mein Schiff 5.

The tour started in La Romana / Dominican Republic and had the following stations:

  • Roseau, Dominica
  • Bridgetown, Barbados
  • Pointe-à-Pitre, Guadaloupe
  • Fort-de-France, Martinique
  • Castries, St. Lucia
  • St. George's, Grenada
  • Kralendijk, Bonaire
  • Oranjestad, Aruba
  • Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic
  • La Romana, Dominican Republic

We'd a wonderful time, perfect weather, good company, excellent food and some cigars. Nothing to complain about.

Now about some sad news: due to rapidly droping page views over the last months (and also some other personal priorities), I will reduce my activities here, therefore this will be the last posting for the time being... maybe I will revive it again this year... or finish it completely... I'm not sure yet.
