World Elephant Day 2018

World Elephant Day 2018

12-08-2018   Today it is the world elephant day. A day where we think about the Elephant, the positive and the negative. But mostly about the danger that they are facing nowadays. There are two types of elephants, the African and the Asian elephant. As the name suggests, the African elephants live in Africa and the Asian elephants live in Asia. The continent that they are living on is not their only difference. Difference between African – and Asian Elephant…

The short road trip to Norway

The short road trip to Norway

Hello there! It has been a bit quiet on this website but not without a reason. The last few weeks I have been busy with all the last preparations.  For the coming months, I will be studying in Norway! At this moment I’m sitting behind my desk in my room on campus in far remote Norway, watching the rain pouring down. Cannot imagine a better time to start writing down everything I had experienced during our short road trip to…

The services of the nature

The services of the nature

Nobody will doubt when you tell them the earth is a special planet. It is the only known planet where you can find everything that is necessary for life and therefore for the humans. The earth gives us everything we need: food, water, oxygen and all other things you can imagine we receive from nature. The knowledge about nature became thousands of years ago, but with the rise of technology and industry, we are getting further and further away from…

Horse riding in Uganda

Horse riding in Uganda

Before I went home on my last day in Jinja, Uganda I decided that I was going to do a horse riding tour. Back at home, I have been riding horses a lot. So I gave myself up as experience and for 3 hours. Without realizing that is has been quite a while ago. And therefore, my legs, but and belly muscles were not used to sitting in a saddle anymore. Not even thinking about 3 hours long! But I…

Climbing the Ben Nevis

Climbing the Ben Nevis

When I was on holiday in Scotland back in summer 2017 we have climbed the Ben Nevis. It was more like a joke than a well-prepared plan. At the end of the morning, we were really close to Ben Nevis and we thought, well why not have a quick look? We reached the starting point and after having a look at the map we said to each other let’s walk up to the lake to have a look and then…

The difference between water turning on the hemispheres

The difference between water turning on the hemispheres

  One of the small little facts that I always loved is the way the water turns when going down. The difference between the turning on either side of the equator. When I was on my travel throughout Uganda we crossed the equator a couple of times. Of course, I made a couple of funny pictures standing exactly on the 0-degrees line. 1 foot on the northern and 1 foot on the southern hemisphere… But on one of the more…

Rafting on the Nile

Rafting on the Nile

After I finished my trip throughout Uganda I had a few days left in Jinja. Both my mom and my boyfriend couldn’t pick me up from the airport back home, so I had to book a few days later. On the other side, life in the tropics is never a problem. And I had on goal left in Uganda: Rafting. I had one free afternoon, one full day and the one almost full day left before I had to go…

The mighty mountain gorilla

The mighty mountain gorilla

I still have to pinch myself when thinking about it… I have seen the endangered mountain gorillas! After my internship I did two weeks travel throughout Uganda, to see some more of the country before flying back home. Visiting one of the gorilla families is something you have to plan months in ahead. There are limited people allowed every day to visit the gorillas. Every gorilla family will be visited once a day by a group of maximum 7 people, excluded…

99% human. As close as you can get.

99% human. As close as you can get.

When I was doing my trip throughout Uganda I went on a chimpanzee tracking. In other words, we went out for a walk towards the place the chimpanzees should be. After looking around, communicating with other rangers and listening to their screaming, we found them! Before I tell you about my experience and thoughts during this track, first some more information about the similarity between these chimpanzees and humans. The exact percentages of identical DNA are something scientists are still…
