Ice on the lake

It´s a fantastic beginning of the winter her in north Germany. Snow and ice. Here are some impressions:


kayaking "Iles de Sanguinaires" Corsika

On our trip on the shores of Corsika island in France we visited the Iles de Sanguinaires.
A beautiful group of rocky islands that are crested with old genuvesian towers and new lighthouses.

Spectacular view of the island chain

the lighthouse of Blavandshuk

On the westernmost point of Denmark we visited the Blavandshuk lighthouse, that was build in 1900 to protect the seafaring ships from the dangerous sandbanks around.


The lighthouse of Livorno Italy

On our journey to Corsika we needed to stay one day in Livorno, an Italian
harbour town, because of a lack of Ferries. So we had time to explore the maritime history of the city a little and came across the lighthouse which was build 1304, then destroyed in the second world war. Rebuilt in 1956 to match the old tower it´s white Light can reach 24 miles out into the sea nowadays. In the harbour we have seen the traditional Sailing Ship Amrigo
Vespucci, an amazing craft.
