    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 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 🙏

    Do the Farmers see any environmental effects already, like our 2nd wave of dying forests? Anything unusual? Or is nature still quite intact?

    You really have a hand for the camera. I like your style of photography. 🤗

    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 ...

    Day 40: Dar es Salaam

    March 13, 2019 in Tanzania ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    We are back on Tanzania mainland and spent an afternoon in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania’s largest city.

    It’s a busy place 😉 We spent the day walking through some local streets and visiting a local market. You can buy anything you need for your home at this market: From fresh fruit and vegetables to clothes and household equipment. It was great fun and also quite nice to walk for a bit.

    But I am a bit sad today as I just realized that more than half of my trip is already over ... time flies and I am sooooo not ready to go home 🤷🏼‍♀️

    Beautiful! The colors are stunning. Compared with our markets we look boring.

    Day 1: Back in Tanzania

    September 2, 2019 in Tanzania ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    🇹🇿🇹🇿🇹🇿Tanzania🇹🇿🇹🇿🇹🇿Moshi🇹🇿🇹🇿🇹🇿

    I can’t believe that I’m back. Already. After only a few months. I always knew that I would come back some day ... but this is just amazing 🙏

    I’m off to Tanzania to learn about coffee, from farming to roasting 🧐 ☕️ 🌿

    Today was all about getting to know our hosts, the group, the farm and basics about coffee. And to adjust to the climate. The farm is at 1.350m (at the lower end of mount Kilimandscharo) - so it’s freezing cold, all day. But especially at night.

    And I can already tell that I don’t ever want to go back home again (but I will, no worries)... just like the last time I came I fell in love again with the people, nature and life on this continent.💛🇹🇿

    How wonderful to see you back there. I saw some of your work back at Tchibo and I was kind of worried that you fall back into old patterns and temptations.

    Day 42: Mikumi National Park & Iringa

    March 15, 2019 in Tanzania ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    Today was a perfect day. Really just perfect 💛

    We started the day with another game drive at Mikumi National Park. We got to see so many giraffes 🦒 and elephants 🐘 ... the elephants came really close to our vehicle. I’m never getting tried of being with these creatures. Although I must admit I have started to take less photos and just focused on observing them with my eyes. If you think about it: How many people travel and see only with their phones and cameras but not with their eyes and with their minds? It’s all about getting that perfect picture to show to friends and family. And that’s fine. But I have decided that for me it’s more about being present in the moment myself 🙏

    After the game drive we headed further south to a place called Iringa. On our way we stopped on the side of the road as we have seen several Baobab trees (very old trees, some almost 2,000 years old) - the locals believe that you need to hug one of these trees and make a wish and it will come true ✨ let’s see ... I made two ✌️

    When we finally arrived at the lodge, we came to find one of the most beautiful lodges I have stayed at in the past week. An old farm house. The farm is still intact producing meat and vegetables 🌽🥦🥬🥕🐄🐑. We also had dinner at the farm; they served us a meal with only produce from the farm. It was yummy! But the best was actually the rooms. I slept in the stables. And for the first time in weeks I had a proper pillow and blanket ... I slept like a baby 💫✨🌙

    Day 4: The Coffee Nursery

    September 5, 2019 in Tanzania ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Another day of working on the farm. Today we visited the nursery where new coffee plants are grown 🌱🌱🌱.

    This was a very fun day as we were able to do all the planting ourselves - from planting small coffee beans in the nursery to planting a fully grown tree out in the field.Read more
