Staffa | Hebrides Overture Inside Fingal’s Cave

The boat approaches the isle of Staffa… Roll of drums and blast of trumpets. No, much better than that. More subtle. It’s the Fingal’s Cave Overture, they’re playing on the boat. A bit cheesy, I admit. But then again, majestic views and awe-inspiring moments call for symbolic measures. A blogpost  about sound and vision, about music matching images.

Inner Hebrides | Corryvrechan Wildlife Tour

A Sea Safari   Usually, I dread group touring. My experience is that organised day trips especially tend to bring out the worst in people. Be first, be loud, crush your fellow travellers for that ultimate picture. Then there are the tedious, or downright lazy, guides who recite their tons of mere facts quite unpassionately. Not so with Seafari Adventures. Hop on in and take a ride in an open RIB (Rigid Inflatable Boat) trip to the narrrow Strait of Corryvrechan between the islands of Jura and Scarba. The Corryvrechan is the third largest whirlpool in the world.

Cape Verde Islands – Boa Vista | Turtle SOS

I don’t consider myself a hero, but I can’t stand watching an animal suffer. As a child, I brought home many wounded birds and tried to nurse them back to health. With varying degrees of success… I intercepted mice or moles my cats had caught and set them free, far enough from home. On Boa Vista, one of the sandy Cape Verde Islands, I ‘rescued’ a turtle. I sincerely hope it was still strong enough to survive the ocean. And that he or she is swimming out there, living well into an old age.
