In the beautiful valley of the Ernz Noire in Luxembourg Mullerthal you will find this wonderful unique travertine source.

The famous Mullerthal Hiking Trail passes this wonderful place but it is also easily accessible by a walk over a 600 m wooden bridge crossing the small river. It is a unique place to relax from everyday stress, to enjoy the beautiful nature. Everybody of us can contribute to save our environment and nature.

a video about the tropical Rainforest of Costa Rica
In this video, I share my impressions and experiences of a self-organized 14-day roundtrip in Namibia with a 4 X 4 car with a roof tent on the top.

Animals in the movies are White Rhinos, Cheetahs, Leopards, Brown Hyena, Oryx , Ostrich and ......
The tropical rainforest might be compared to a pulsating metropolis: It is a place that never sleeps. An incredible environment of high diversity which overwhelms
all our senses.
As soon as the nocturnal animals come to rest, the first birds start to sing and the cicadas begin to chirp and keep the noise level high until dusk.
During day, the rainforest is quite dark inside and most of its colourful inhabitants are not easily visible. Only the shrill whistle from the canopy, a rustling in the scrub, or peels of fruits or nuts falling down let you guess which animal is hiding where. The variety of the scents of blossoming flowers and ripe fruits and the territorial markings of the animals mix all together to one single smell.
The variety of shapes of all the plants or the attractive looking caterpillars invite you really to touch them. However, since many plants and animals can be toxic, this is not advisable. There is no distinct season in which the life runs quieter. Exploring the tropical rainforest is always an exciting experience. Life in the tropical rainforest comes never to rest.

To get eye to eye to Mountain Gorillas, one of the closest relatives of human beings, is an amazing and unforgettable moment which you have only once in your life. Gorilla Tracking in The Volvanoes National Park in Rwanda or in the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in Uganda gives you the privilege to stay for a while with this primates who live in distinct groups in the wild. All the gorilla groups are habituated to the presence of people and and you are allowed to stay one hour with them in their natural habitat. To be close to Mountain Gorillas and facing the Silverback and observe a part of their daily life and capture some pictures with your camera is really breathtaking. I had an opportunity to stay with “Group Thirteen” in Rwanda) and with the "Habinyanja Group" in Uganda
Wild Boar has all over the world a bad reputation due to their expanding population, their damage to crops and farmland, crashes with cars, distributing parasites to our domestic animals and bringing the swine flu to humans.... Only the meat of the wild boar and its flavouring taste has a good reputation. But the environmental benefits of the wild boar for the biodiversity of plants and a healthy soil is forgotten.
