    Day 15: Time to say goodbye

    February 16, 2019 in Tanzania ⋅ ☀️ 32 °C

    Well, that’s it, today is my last day in paradise and also my last day in Tanzania - for now! Because I will come back in March.

    I spent my last day at the beach, in the pool and outside of the hotel exploring the surroundings a bit ... see for yourself but to me it was quite shocking that I can stay at this beautiful resort and just behind its walls there is people living ... uhm ... differently.

    Tanzania is a beautiful country. But it’s poor. It needs help. It deserves so much help because the people here are extremely friendly, they live in peace. So I’m already thinking about what I can do ...

    Day 37 & 38: Zanzibar 2.0

    March 11, 2019 in Tanzania ⋅ 🌬 27 °C

    I am back in paradise for a few days: 1.5 days of relaxing on the beach of Zanzibar in Nungwi 🏝

    I really needed a break so this was just perfect 👌 I desperately needed some “me time” and a break from being on a schedule all the time. I wish we would spend a few more days here - it’s so beautiful.Read more

    Day 10: A culture of peace and happiness

    February 11, 2019 in Tanzania ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    Sorry for the late post...I’ve been busy doing nothing 🤷🏼‍♀️ 🌴🐬😎

    You know what I love about this country? The Hakuna Matata attitude (Swahili, means „no worries“ - so no it’s not just a thing invented by Disney’s Lion King). Everyone seems to be relaxed and happy.

    The best example of this is the many different tribes and religions living peacefully together in this county. Tanzania is home to more than 100 different ethnic groups and while approximately 60% of the population is Christian, there are also 35% of people following the Muslim belief (in Zanzibar it’s even more than 90%). And guess what, no war. No fights. No hate. 🙏💛

    I find this fascinating. This is not exactly a rich country measured per GDP, but still the people living here manage to set an example for the world 👍✌️

    One of the drivers I had told me that his dad is Muslim and his mom is Christian. On Sunday each of them attends a different service and the kids can chose whom to accompany until they are old enough to decide which faith to follow. I think this is fabulous. Absolutely fabulous. And I wish the rest of the world would do a better job in accepting people’s differences.

    Okay so this day was a “critical about society” day ... having nothing to do but think, these are the thoughts running through my head 😂

    PS: Simba is also Swahili language and means „Lion“...Disney apparently did a good research for their movie 🦁👌

    Day 12: 33 degrees and I have a cold

    February 13, 2019 in Tanzania ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    Really can you believe it? It’s hot, so hot and I have to stay in bed to survive a cold 🤧

    Anyways ... I will be fine - as always 💪

    But being with a cold, I have decided “that’s it”. No more relaxation. Apparently too much rest weakens my body 😉

    So I have booked some trips for the remaining three days. I will keep you posted.

    As I have not done anything special today (not even read), here are just some random photos I took during the day.

    Day 11: Nothing but rest and relaxation

    February 12, 2019 in Tanzania ⋅ ☁️ 30 °C

    So far so good. I’ve managed quite a few days now without doing anything but hang at the beach. The result: I have finished reading one of two books (The Mastery of Love, a MUST READ) and I have red skin 🦞🦀

    The book I have mentioned is about the mastery of self-love and so there is also a chapter about beauty, saying that basically we are all beautiful (because we are LIFE); it’s just our culture and society that have programmed us to judge what is beautiful and what is not.

    Some food for thought. But I fully agree. Trust me, you will too if you think about it for a few minutes (really, read the book). The African people for example, have a completely different perception about what is beautiful than we do, so do Asians etc.

    So today I will share some people pictures with you.

    Day 2: Coffee Tasting

    September 3, 2019 in Tanzania ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Today was all about tasting. Tasting the differences of coffee beans as well as preparation types. Well, I’m not really good at it - it’s similar to wine tasting and needs practice - but at least I can tell that differences exist 😉😇

    Surprisingly, it is quite cold in Tanzania 🇹🇿 🥶 I’m really freezing in the morning as well as at night ... I can tell that I’m going to catch a cold soon 🤒 But during the day it is perfect weather. And our hosts are amazing - before going to bed they place a hot-water bottle underneath our blankets 🙏

    Day 32: Off to Ngorongoro and Serengeti

    March 5, 2019 in Tanzania ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    A day of driving. But unlike the days before, today’s drive was about getting to one of the major highlights of my entire trip: The Ngorongoro crater and the famous Serengeti 🐘🦛🦏🐆🦒🦁.

    If you know me, you know how much I love animals and nature, so you can probably imagine how excited I am about this excursion 💛

    I have attached a few pics I have taken along the way ... isn’t it gorgeous? I hope you enjoy the colors as much as I do 💛

    Day 41: Going South (Mikumi)

    March 14, 2019 in Tanzania ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    So we have left the busy town of Dar es Salaam and spent the day in the truck to go further south and closer to our next country, Malawi 🇲🇼

    The traffic jam in Dar es Salaam was awful so the drive took a very long time. In the late afternoon we finally arrived at the next destination: Mikumi National Park. A beautiful lodge where everyone had their own little cottage.

    Like Serengeti, this national park as well as the lodge property are not fenced ... so guess what happened? Yes, I have been visited by four-legged creatures again. Two water buffalos having dinner right in front of my house 🐂.

    It’s probably just a coincidence. But I feel blessed that on this trip the wild animals always came very close to ME ... I love wild life and maybe this is just the law of attraction at its best 🤷🏼‍♀️🙏✨

    Day 8: There is a Mzungu in town

    February 9, 2019 in Tanzania ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    After a wonderful night in my soft, warm and huge bed, I feel rested and ready for another mini adventure 🦸🏼‍♀️

    Today I went out to town with Gaston meeting some of his friends and enjoying some local stuff: Good Tanzanian cuisine, quick stop at the local market and finally some bars and local beer 🍺 💃🏼 Plus (and this was my favorite): A ride on the Daladala - this is a mini bus which stops wherever you want, picking up as many people as possible (possible means more than the bus is designed to carry) 🚎😂

    Again, I have experienced nothing but kindness from the local people - so many new friends in a country far away from home 🇹🇿💛

    PS: Mzungu is the Swahili term used for white people 👩‍🦳

    Day 36: Bagamoyo - Gate to Zanzibar

    March 9, 2019 in Tanzania ⋅ ⛅ 34 °C

    Leaving Arusha behind, we travelled around 500km west to reach the coast of Tanzania: Bagamoyo. We are just staying for one night as tomorrow we will go to Zanzibar - I cannot wait for two days at the beach 🏝

    On our way we passed the Kilimandscharo again. It is so beautiful 🏔 And when I see it I always think “I was up there - all by myself 💪💪💪” ... still proud of this ☺️

    Attached you will see some pics of the lodge as well as of Bagamoyo town ...
