    Dominica

    November 7, 2016 in Dominica

    Haben heute einen schönen Tag mit Traumwetter (trotz vorhergesagtem Regen) auf Dominica verbracht. Zuerst Stadtrundfahrt Roseau, dann zum Botanischen Garten. Toller Blick vom Aussichtspunkt Morne Bruce und dann noch 4 Stunden am Lava Strand Mero-Beach.

    Hike to the Boiling Lake I

    January 27, 2016 in Dominica

    The following day Mike, Lisa, and I met our guide, Martin, at 6:30 AM ! Poor poor Mike, he doesn’t fair well in the mornings (but he did well that day….). Martin drove us an hour South near Rosseau. We started the hike on a well maintained path, though, still an arduous climb up. All four of us were breathing hard as we climbed right into the clouds.DSC_0543 Extreme drop offs were on either side of us and when there was a break in the trees and brush, jets of wind funneled over the cliffside. The force of which, nearly knocked your body back. I looked back several times unsure if Lisa would fly away. We suddenly found ourselves on the summit about 3,000 feet up but with zero view due to the clouds. I took a picture but it didn’t come out 😉 (sorry, that was Kirsten humor…) We then, began to decline over a ridge into what opened up to be the first of the two calderas! It was fantastically green and the rocks held so much iron. These calderas are thought to have been created 40,000 and 35,000 years ago.Read more

    Hike to the Boiling Lake II

    January 27, 2016 in Dominica

    We cautiously climbed over narrow muddy footholds that descended into the valley of desolation. This was super neat! As in, when I looked up to see the valley of desolation, I had truly NEVER seen anything like it in my life. I saw pictures online but it didn’t do it justice. The gaseous ground, did, reminded me of a scene in the cat/dog movie of Milo & Otis (kudos to anyone who remembers that childrens movie. I watched that movie on my Dads lap in 17 Rising Lane Long Island NY when I was a kid). The smell of sulfur was so strong you could taste it and when the wind changed and the steam rolled into your face you could feel and taste it. Joy… Mike and I wore our chaos sandals so our feet could feel the heat of the earth beneath us… which I found a little…. intimidating. The earth was cakey and almost sponge-like in some areas. In the stream some people have been known to cook a raw egg…. I didn’t see the appeal in that.
    The photo of all the steam is a fumarole, a crack, which gas escapes. Since the last major eruption was 800 AD… I’m not terribly concerned.

    Anyway. Another great sight was the fact we saw a black stream… a lot of them in fact. Created out of basalt. The other streams of green, grey, and white… I’m less sure of but hot dang! they sure are cool looking.

    Hike to the Boiling Lake III

    January 27, 2016 in Dominica

    We passed a few hot springs which were very inviting and yet still maintained that lingering sulfur smell. And once we had hiked over mountains and traversed hot rivers we arrived at the second largest boiling lake in the world….. Boiling Lake.

    Welcome to Dominica...

    July 2, 2017 in Dominica

    Nach einer rasanten Fahrt mit der Fähre, den Formalitäten bei der Grenzbehörde und dem Zoll betreten wir Dominica. Das Auto wartet auch schon auf uns. Ich fahre das erste Mal links auf der Straße. Und das gleich hier im Dunkeln bei den "Wahnsinnigen" aus der Karibik... 😃

    Am Treffpunkt warten wir auf unseren Vermieter. Zwei Männer mit Machete laufen an uns vorbei... 😎 Dann klopft es am Auto. Uta hat Angst... Ein Bettler!? Nein, der gute Mann bringt uns in unsere Unterkunft. Der Weg ist ein einziges Abenteuer, aber wir kommen an... 😃

    Das Haus ist unerwartet riesengroß. Zwei Etagen für uns Drei... 😃
