Namibia promises endless expanses, impressive dune landscapes, mighty canyons and a fascinating animal world.
Yes, I know it's a cliché, but the Highlands are really the Scotland of your imagination. They are a wonderful blend of culture, history, architecture and an unparalleled landscape. Think of a wide sky, stunning scenery, great food and hospitable people - there's really nothing better if you want to get away from it all and just relax. Unpredictable. Irrepressible. Unbelievable. Surpass it!
The archipelago of the Seychelles with its 115 islands is one of the last paradises on earth. Throughout the year there is a pleasant tropical climate with daytime temperatures around 30°C and water temperatures around 27°C. The archipelago is one of the last paradises in the world. The Seychelles are characterized by unique large granite rocks, turquoise blue water, white lonely sandy beaches and fantastic fauna and flora.
My second residence is Pany, one of the sunniest villages in the Prättigau. Hilly, gentle on one side of the valley, alpine and wild on the other. These are attributes that do justice not only to the landscape, but also the Prättigauer. They may well be a little "different". But real. That is really true.
