Close encounter met de dragons in Komodo

October 18 , 2016  00:00
De lucht komt al van verre tegemoet. De enorme buffalo ligt op de zij in een plasje water, in het droge seizoen een zeldzaamheid op Komodo geworden. En dan lijkt die massa te bewegen. Het is echter niet de buffalo, maar drie tot zelfs zes komodo varanen die zich letterlijk een weg eten door het dier. Een kadootje tijdens onze reis.

Ship Shape – Giving Katharina a Facelift

September 28 , 2015  00:00
Renovating a house is easy. Call a contractor, buy the materials, and get them delivered to your house – all you have to do is pay for it.

You plan your time with military precision, you get creative, and you bring in the Bugis Men.
