Travel reports from North America

A declaration of love to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Dear Pittsburgh, ...

British Columbia Alberta

From hairy fur animals and golden loons

8,000 km round trip by car through British Columbia and Alberta. 9 days alone on a boat through the fjords and inlets of the Great Bear Rainforest on the Pacific coast. To the most remote and spectacular areas to experience bears that have just come out of hibernation. We are doing the most wonderful experience of our life with a grizzly mother and her 3 boys. On the tour we experienced beautiful, thoughtful and touching things and tell about our personal experiences, emotions and impressions about people, animals and nature of western Canada.

Fogo Island, Newfoundland

Lost and Found - on Fogo Island

Searching for clues - on the way on a lonely island off the coast of Newfoundland!
