      Mit Salatschüsseln Cruisen

      May 1, 2023 in Madagascar ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

      Wir entschieden uns am Abend davor selbständig die Insel Nosybe zu erkunden und miteteten am Morgen einen Roller. Natürlich haben wir unsere Führausweise zuhause gelassen. Dies sei nicht schlimm meinte der Vermieter. Falls ein Polizist euch anhält, einfach paar Scheine bereit haben. Die Helme sind aber obligatorisch meinte er und gab uns die schönsten und sichersten Salatschüsseln ;).
      Ziel vom Tag war der Hausberg Mont Passot und dort die Aussicht zu geniessen sowie ein Stück zu laufen. Jedoch begann es kurz vor Ankunft stark zu regnen und wir warteten die Zeit unter einem Baum ab. Zum Glück dauerte der Regen nicht all zu lange und wir konnten weiter gehen und auf der Aussichtsplatform das Panorama geniessen. Unterhalb des Mont Passo spazierten wir zu einem verstecktem Wasserfall, der wir ohne das 6 jährige Mädchen nicht gefunden hätten. Unterwegs waren wir fasziniert von den Bäumen mit den gigantisch grossen Blättern. Abschliessend machten wir einen abstecher nach Andilana und assen dort spät etwas zu Mittag.

      Mont Passot

      November 15, 2023 in Madagascar ⋅ ☀️ 31 °C

      The main purpose behind my stay in Nosy Be is to relax and recover from my month long safari in East Africa. As such, the logs for today and until my tour start aren't going to be particularly exciting. Mostly including beach, pool, drinks, and chilling out. After a very relaxing morning with a hell of a sleep in, I headed to the beach just a few kms down the road. It was a very hot walk, but I was keen to see the little town that I was staying in. It was quite cute, but poverty is very prevalent, which you can see in the second photo. The people are still very lovely, and at no point did I feel unsafe. Except for maybe the lack of paths and crazy tuktuk drivers, but I trust their skill and experience in their little cars. When I arrived at the beach, it was beautiful. The forest that occupies the headland perfectly flows into the beautifully coloured water. Everything was perfect until I actually entered the water. I think I timed my swim very poorly, as there was plenty of seaweed that made swimming awkward. It was likely the result of the very warm water. After my 3km walk in the middle of the day, I was very keen on a refreshing swim, but that it not what I got. It was more like jumping in a warm bath. I didn't stay in for long, but I still explored up and down the beach some more because it was still beautiful. Eventually, though, I figured I would head to Mont Passot for sunset. I bartered the Tuktuk driver and we headed toward the mountain. When you got up there, you had nearly 360-degree views of the whole island, and it was incredible to see the sunset over the water, creating a silhouette of the mountains and islands in the forefront. I stayed up here for quite a while before figuring it was time to head down to join my driver. I may have left it a bit early to see the complete sunset, but I was quite keen to get home, and it made the drive far more exciting. Given that we had some mechanical issues too, it was probably for the best I left while the sun was still up. After some time, we arrived back at the resort, and I sat down for dinner before another early night.Read more
