Our big summer trip of last year started in Tyrol, in a small Austrian town called Ladis. Lars and I only stayed there for one night, on our way to the Balkans. We had a fabulous room with a magnificent view on the Alps. The building you see in the pictures is the restored ruins of 13th-century castle. Before dinner,…

Photo Essay – Bagenkop Beer

So, when my sister-in-law proposed to have a beer in the harbour of Bagenkop, I became very enthusiastic, to say the least.

Exploring Roman Ruins in Romania

Mud volcano Romania

Romanian Mud Volcanoes

Let’s start with a definition of a mud volcano: Mud volcano or mud dome refers to formations created by geo-exuded mud or slurries, water and gases.
