This place has a beautiful name...Quinta da Regaleira. A Brazilian coffee trader bought this domain in 1892 to show his wealth. The domain consists of a house with an underground crypt, a park with fountains and various pavilions and two initiation w

The town of Sintra is only 40 minutes by train from Lisbon. Hidden in the hills of Sintra are majestic palaces. One of these palaces is Quinta da Regaleira - my personal favorite. This site also contains two initiation wells that descend nine floors

Lisbon is also known as 'the city of seven hills'. The best way to wind your way through these hills and the narrow streets is by tram. The tram is also a cheap way to explore the city . Think it was about 3 euros. When I took this photo I was standi

Lisbon's trams are an important part of the public transport, and in my opinion way better than the metro. Ascensor da Bica is one of the oldest lifts in Lisbon and very photogenic. There two trams here, one covered with graffiti and a yellow one. My

Lisbon is great for a citytrip! Started early in the morning and took Tram 28 From Praça do Martim Moniz. It was already very crowded at this stop. This is the most popular tram line in Lisbon which goes down through the medieval streets of Alfama, t

For now a last photo of Yellowstone, the oldest National Park in the world and my top favorite park. I don't know the name of this pool but it looks like the earth has opened up. However there is a potential global disaster under Yellowstone: a super

Portland is one the greenest cities in the US. I liked visiting this city, that is also known as the 'City of Bridges'. The city has 12 beautiful bridges that cross the Willamette River. One of Portland's iconic old bridges is the Steel Bridge. . . .

Mount Rainier last erupted about 150 years ago. But regular plumes of smoke show that this volcano has not been extinguished. Mount Rainier is considered the most dangerous volcano in the US. This was as close as I could get to this mountain. There w

Took this photo of Mount Rainier from reflection lake. There was quite some wind, which made it hard to get a good reflection. Mount Rainier is a 4.392 meter high volcano. The upper part of this volcano remains totally snow covered year round. This

Due to the amount of snow it was difficult to find a suitable trail. Finally decided to hike the Van Trump Park Trail to Comet Falls. This hike was about 7,2 kilometers, with an total elevation gain of 780 meters. Comet Falls is one of the most beaut

This female moose was blocking the road big time. It was eating a lot of leaves, so had to wait quite some time. When it finally started to move, I sneaked past it. They are pretty big but not really aggressive. Still I didn't want to spoil her dinne

The Swiftcurrent Pass Trail in the Many Glacier area of Glacier National Park goes along the Redrock falls. This a great place to spot wildlife. I spotted a moose at the lake behind these waterfalls. And on the way back a Grizzly mother with two cubs

Glacier NP in the Northern Rocky Mountains contains forests, mountain meadows, lakes, high mountains and of course glaciers. When I arrived the weather changed in the blink of an eye. It became a lot colder and the wind was picking up. Not the best c

I was taking pictures of some Bighorn sheep, when suddenly this rodent popped up. Probably it wanted to know where the (camera) clicks came from. I have seen a lot of these guys. It almost felt like I was haunted by squirrels or marmots the entire tr

Hiked the Swiftcurrent Pass Trail to Swiftcurrent Mountain. This hike is 25 kilometers in total with an elevation gain of 1.148 meters. Due to the weather (Snow, hail and rain) I walked about 18km. The native people describe this area as 'Shining Mou

Driving through the wide open 'Big Sky' landscape of Montana. This state is called the treasury state because it's got lots of minerals. Traveled through the ever-changing landscape of forest, mountains and plains to Glacier National Park, which is l

This bison was walking at a slow, relaxed pace. I guess it just woke up, because it was very early in the morning. The park rangers were warning all the time to not come to close to the bisons. Bisons are actually twice as dangerous as Grizzly bears

This one (Silex spring) is actually a geyser, but eruptions are very rare. This amazingly blue pool is located in the Lower Geyser Basin, close to the river Firehole. In this area there are also some mudpots that spread a smell of rotten eggs 🤭. . .
