We had heard of Lake Natron before our arrival to Tanzania and of course the pictures of the bright red lake we stumbled upon during our online research sparked our interest. But, we thought to visit Lake Natron was off limits due to our time and budget restrictions. Quite unexpectedly we found ourselves on one of the most mesmerizing journeys through Maasailand!

Isla Ometepe is a truly unique place. As for so many, the island was without a doubt one of our highlights. The world's largest freshwater lake is surrounded by the pristine waters of Central America's largest lake, Lago Nicaragua. Formed by two volcanos Conception and Maderas, the island took the shape of an infinity symbol. The once native Nahual people called the island "two hills" (Ome = two, tepe = hills). Isla Ometepe's mystical charm and breathtaking rugged landscape have intrigued been intriguing mankind ever since. As you approach the island with its twin-coned silhouette dramatically rising into the horizon the boat ride itself brings the promise of a magical experience.

Our love affair with Leon started on Valentine’s day. Contrary to Granada, Nicaragua’s second largest city feels much more authentic and is not overrun by tourists. The drop-dead gorgeous city manages to maintain it’s genuine charm. Just outside of Léon, numerous volcanos wait for you to climb or surf them. And as if this wasn’t enough, some of Nicaragua’s most beautiful beach and surf spots are just around the corner.
Fez's old city, the medina consists of more than 9400 alleys. Some of them more extensive, some of them so narrow you almost didn't recognise it them as a path.

Fez, one of the four royal cities of Morocco was home to respected Imans, artists and scholars is a proud, confident city. It felt cosmopolitan and yet quaint at the same time.
