On Google Earth it is possible now to travel around the world. Even to
visit your own hous and garden from above. Or exploring your travel
destination. These modern inventions are widening our world.
Well, that's nice, but
I think we all prefer to see and explore the real world and the beauty
of real landscapes from human perspectives! There is so much to find out
and therefore my travel goals are quite wide.
Many years now we are
visiting the Costa Blanca in Spain to avoid our West-European winters.
Well, winters?? What winters? Then we rent a car and drive through the
wonderful inland with so many wild flowers to find and photograph.
And La Palma, where we
were last winter in February. The steepest rising island of the world.
With volcanoes and the largest erosion crater of the world, the 'Caldera
de Taburiente'. (see also the page 'Nature').
And the 'Rocky Mountains', where we were in 1994. I still have many
slides of this trip to be scanned. So, any landscape has its own beauty.
For us to discover and admire. My dreams? Well, again Scotland, Ireland,
Spitsbergen, Alaska, New Foundland etc.
