Of horse riding and falling in Germany

Of riding and falling in Germany.
If I were my instructor I would have secretly hoped that I would have a smallish accident, break a bone or two and never return. Thank God, for I was not my instructor.

Velas-The village for turtles

Owing to the Velas turtle festival during the turtle nesting and hatching season, there are more tourists in the village than residents! Turtles have been around for almost 110 million years; they have seen dinosaurs live and perish. What fascinates me the most about sea turtles, besides their long run on our planet, is that they faithfully return to their birth site to nest.

A day in the town of rum, aka Flensburg

When my university announced an excursion, a day in the town of rum aka Flensburg, I imagined a noisy factory with soiled, scandalous looking, reeking men working underground. The brewery actually had minimal manual labor with tanks the size of Eiffel tower and a data centre to monitor the whole process.

My first impression of Kiel

However, my first impression of Kiel lasted only one night. I went out the next day, I couldn’t believe that there were no smokers on the streets, and then it dawned on me that there were no people on the streets. I could literally count the number of people walking on the streets on the fingers of one hand, perhaps two but not more for sure.

In Photos: Durbar Square before Earthquake

Durbar Square before earthquake reminded me of Florence, it had a tinge of red, yellow, orange, blue and green to it and the place came alive with tourists and locals alike. The temple domes with clear blue sky and snow-capped mountain for a backdrop was its specialty.
