Welcome from Austria – A Medieval History of the Close-up of Rieenburg Castle and the Search for Styria

After a day filled with my activities yesterday, which included a photo shoot of my city, an extreme hike and subsequent culinary festivities (to address weight loss), my last day in Austria has come and it must have been exciting too. My brother Ewald and my sister-in-law Anneliese planned to visit one of the medieval treasures of Steria: Riegerburg, a magnificent fortress first built in the 11th century in the strategically important border region of the Austrian Empire.

Styria is one of the lesser-known provinces of Austria, with most people familiar with the area around the capital Vienna; Salzburg (the country of the “sound of music”) and the surrounding region of Tyrol with its high mountains and the capital of Innsbruck. Styria, although Austria’s second largest province, which represents the country’s second largest city (its capital, Graz), remains largely the commander-in-chief of most North American tourists.

As for me, this is one of the most beautiful spots and I just do not say that because I am originally from there. In fact, one of the obvious goals of my trip to Austria this year was to explore the area where I grew up through the eyes of a travel writer and put it in the context of other areas. Opportunity to visit in the last few years.

Styria consists of eight main travel regions:

– Dachstein – Tower, characterized by high mountains, large skis and other outdoor movements

– The most beautiful lake area of ​​Salzburg – Auserland

– Murtal recreation area, densely forested area with lots of outdoor activities

– Upper Styria, another mountainous region that includes the “Styrian Water Road”, the “Styrian Iron Road”, as well as the Hochschwab Mountain region.

– Graz, the provincial capital, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the 2003 European Capital of Culture

– Eastern Styria, my native region, a fascinating region characterized by medium-sized mountains, Austria’s largest mountain pastures, gardens, fertile farmland, monasteries and castles

– Thermenland Styria, a region full of gentle hills, vineyards and ancient volcanic activity that has created six world-class resorts, and

– The South Styrian Wine Region and the Western Styria, where the gently sloping mountains are full of vineyards and the famous white horses destined for the Vienna Motor School, are invited to a place often referred to as the “Austrian Tuscany”.

Rüderburg of present-day destination is located on the southern border of the East Styria travel region, directly across from the volcanic region of the Turnland district. In fact, the castle itself is built on the ancient volcanic cone of a long-extinct volcano. We started from the valley through the Raab Valley and through the village of Gleesdorf. We turned the main road to small country roads, which led to beautiful hills, many of which have gardens and vineyards.

From these small side roads are the official bike paths that have been signed and many local winemakers own a small village restaurant called “Buschenschenken” whose garden terraces invite hikers, bikers and other travelers to sit down and enjoy Sturyan cuisine. We encountered almost no movement and on this beautiful warm day in the summer many cyclists were present with good workouts and enjoyed the scenery.

About 45 minutes later we reached our destination: in front of us a magnificent rock is crowned with the magnificent Rieberburg Castle. We stopped the car at the foot of the village rock and started climbing the castle. The narrow road has no sidewalk and is essentially composed of dark volcanic rock with many narrow gullies and horses that have been used in horse-drawn carriages for hundreds of years. We entered through the first gate, which was numerous. Riegerburg has seven main gates and eleven bastions. The defensive wall around the castle is an impressive three kilometers long. The combination of these features made the castle the most important fortification on the Styrian border of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

The strategic importance of this border region becomes apparent in the context of the Ottoman wars of the 16th and 17th centuries between the Habsburg monarchy and the Ottoman Empire. The area of ​​Eastern Styria in particular was often threatened with invasion by Eastern forces. In 1664 a decisive final battle was fought in nearby M მოგgersdorf, ending a two-year war against the Turks. Riegerburg itself was never conquered and as a result it is referred to as “the strongest fortification of Christianity”. It was part of a whole series of frontier forts along the border of the Habsburg Empire.

We walked slowly along the road to the castle, which was surrounded by a curved wall that would allow the peaks to be attacked by potential invaders on their way to the castle. On the open plateau below the prison building, the wall features numerous plaques depicting hundreds of soldiers from secondary villages who died during World War II. Each village had its own board. Another beautiful gate led us to the last part of the trail, which led up to the castle. At the foot of the castle is the “Burgtaverne”, a restaurant with a beautiful large courtyard, which offers a beautiful view of the surrounding countryside and the attractiveness of Austrian cuisine.

As we approached the castle itself, we went through two trenches, each of which was fortified, and the other inner trench was actually still water. Now we really were in the prison construction complex and walked through the large inner courtyard to the central building where the retail store is located where we bought a 9.5 euro access to the central part of the prison.

The name of Riegerburg Castle was originally referred to as “Ruotkerspurch” in 1138, which actually means “Rüdiger’s Castle”, so the castle originally belonged to an aristocrat by that name. At the end of the 16th century it underwent a major reconstruction to include architectural features from the late Renaissance period. Large ceremonial rooms and an arcade in the inner courtyard date this era.

Riegersburg hosts two permanent exhibitions: The Basement Museum of Witches focuses on the obsession and persecution of witches who ruled in Central European countries from about 1450 to 1750. About 300 alleged magicians and sorcerers were persecuted in witch trials in Styria, and many of them were executed. The peak of witch-hunting occurred during the 30-year war, from 1618 to 1648, when the war and the so-called The “Little Ice Age” devastated agriculture and wiped out populations, many of whom were blamed for the wicked behavior of alleged witches.

We were planning to see another exhibition: “Legendary Riegerburg – Legendary Women”. Two very colorful female characters are associated with the history of this prison. The first was Baroness Elizabeth Catherine von Galler (from 1607 to 1672), who was a prison lady from 1648 to 1672. In a period of very traditional female and female role anticipation, the “gallery” was of a very unconventional nature and the usual norms. Women at that time, even aristocratic women, had no right to property, and Elizabeth, as the only heir to the prison, would have to give up her husband’s property, but she refused it. Even in the marriage contract, he secured the right to decide the property issue.

Baroness Elizabeth von Galler began a complete reconstruction of the castle, which included a stunning Baroque white hall, as well as numerous bastions, gates, and a castle surrounded by wide walls. Several inscriptions above the various gates indicate that he spent a lot of money on this construction work. His wife took on a large debt and in 1649 he paid a considerable sum and got rid of it. Generally Baroness von Galler was married three times and participated in several legal battles with her husband and local clergy.

Another interesting female character presented at the ‘Legendary Women’ exhibition is Katarina Paldauf, who was an employee of Baroness von Gallery, for whom she started working at the age of 20. From 1673 to 1675 he participated in the trial of Feldbach witches and was accused of manipulating the weather and participating in witches on Saturdays. Legends also say that he was able to bring roses in the winter, a talent that earned him the “Flower Magician”. His supernatural powers for bringing flowers to the season accused him of witchcraft and presumably executed him in 1675.

The various exhibits of the exhibition also shed light on the historical background of the XVI-XVII centuries. Servitism and feudalism characterized power structures in the Middle Ages, while peasants had very difficult lives, while aristocrats formed a hereditary elite that had the right to occupy lands and exercise distant powers over ordinary people. At that time, mainly the agrarian economy obliged the peasants to feed a significant share of their production to the local rulers and nobles, who in turn promised to protect them during the war. It was an era of extensive exploitation and the lords had the right to use the peasants’ lands as they wished. Often the peasant sought the Lord’s permission when he was about to marry and the peasantry had to pay heavy taxes. These harsh conditions led to the revolt of many peasants throughout Central Europe in the eleventh century.

The nobles lived a luxurious lifestyle. An inscription at the entrance to the castle indicates that an excessive feast in the 1600s led to 21 days of excessive eating and drinking. The lavishly decorated Knights Hall was the site of many such attacks, and the wooden bridge that connected it to the other halls was used for relief after all this, and is commonly referred to as the “Bridge of Vomiting.” Even today the figure of an inclined man decorates the bridge and reminds people of its original purpose.

We admired the lavish details created in the former residential district of Riegerburg, namely the Knights’ Hall with its ceilings and the richly decorated Baroque white hall. As we passed the building, the White Hall again featured table decorations and wedding scraps that had been held at the castle a few days earlier. Today the castle belongs to the Liechtenstein family, an aristocratic family that has lived in this castle since 1972. One of the family members was recently married. Beautiful floral decorations and bridal menus give us an idea of ​​what some of this historic holiday should look like.

We took advantage of our personal history lesson and were ready to explore, so we took a long basalt road through the town of Riegerburg, which was at the foot of the castle. Baroque church and several restaurants push the village’s beautiful main square. Located on the outskirts of the village with a large pool where there is a resort for beach volleyball, water spin, tennis and food outlets.

We then proceeded to our great country on our way to our next destination: Kaffenstein Castle, about a 20-minute drive from Riegerburg, also located on an extinct volcano on the border between Hungary and Slovenia. Its recorded history dates back to 1065 and it was one of the fortresses that protected Austria from the attacks of the Magyars and the Turks. ციხესიმაგრე სხვადასხვა კეთილშობილურ ოჯახებს ეკუთვნოდათ მანამ, სანამ იგი 1898 წელს ვინკლერ-ჰერმადენის ოჯახის მფლობელობაში აღმოჩნდა.

დღეს ციხესიმაგრეში განთავსებულია 15-ოთახიანი მაღალი კლასის სასტუმრო და ასევე რესტორანი, რომელსაც აქვს ფართო გარე ტერასები, რომლებიც განსაცვიფრებელ ხედს შემოგვთავაზებენ მიმდებარე სოფელში. ტერასაზე ლამაზი ადგილი ავირჩიეთ და მენიუს დათვალიერება დავიწყეთ. ქორწილი აშკარად ახლახანს მოხდა ციხის სასტუმროში, რადგან პატარძალი და საქმრო კვლავ ატარებდნენ საჩუქრებს მანქანებისთვის. ჩვენ გადავწყვიტეთ გემრიელები გემრიელები გემრიელები და მე მომეწონა სოკოს წვნიანი შემწვარი წიწიბურა და ყველის ლანგარი, ავსტრიის სპეციალიზირებული ყველის ფართო ასორტიმენტით.

ჩვენი გვიან ლანჩი შუადღის შუა რიცხვებამდე იყო გადაჭიმული და ახლა უკვე ჩვენი მოგზაურობის დრო იყო. სანამ გადავიდოდით, 15 წუთის განმავლობაში ვიარეთ ტყით და რამდენიმე ვენახით კაპფენშტეინის ციხის გვერდით მდებარე პლატოს პატარა სამლოცველოში. აქედან ჩვენ შესანიშნავი ხედი გვქონდა ჩრდილოეთის მიმართულებით და გამადიდებელი სანახაობის საშუალებით ჩვენ შეგვეძლო დავენახე ჩვენი წინა დანიშნულების ადგილი, რიეგერსბურგის ვულკანური კონუსი.

დაბრუნების დრო მოვიდა, ასე რომ, ჩვენ დავიწყეთ უკან დაბრუნება Weiz- ში. ჩვენ ჩვენს მეგობრებთან, ლუისთან და იზაბელასთან შევთანხმდით, რომ შევუერთდებოდით ჩვენს ეზოში, გასულ საღამოს, ავსტრიაში. ჩემი მეგობრებიც მოსიარულე სკუტერების მოსიარულეები არიან და ლუისმა ნება მიბოძა მეთამაშა მათ ერთ ბორბლიან მანქანებზე და თან ახლდა პატარა საცდელი დრაივი. ჩემს ცხოვრებაში კუნძულ იბიცაზე პირველად და ჯერჯერობით მხოლოდ ერთხელ ვიყავი მართული საავტომობილო სკუტერზე და აღფრთოვანებული ვიყავი, რომ კიდევ ერთხელ ვუსურვებდი მას. დაბალანსების საწყისი პრობლემების შემდეგ და სახელურის საწვავის გაზზე მორგებასთან დაკავშირებით, ჩვენ საბოლოოდ დავიწყეთ ჩვენი პატარა თავგადასავალი და საინტერესო ტრიალი გავუყევით ადგილობრივ გზებს.

ოცი წუთის შემდეგ დავბრუნდით და ჩავჯექით მათ ულამაზეს ბაღში, აღფრთოვანებული ვიყავით დიდი აუზით, რომელიც მათ ორმა შექმნა. ყველამ ცოტათი გავიხსენეთ 2005 წლის დრო, როდესაც ჩემი ძმა, ჩემი სიდედრი და ეს ორი მეგობარი ტორონტოში იყვნენ მოსული სტუმრად. ეს იყო პირველი შემთხვევა, როდესაც ჩემი მეგობრები კვლავ ვნახე, ამჯერად მათ სახლში. ჩვენ კი ვფიქრობდით, რომ ერთ-ერთ წელს უნდა გაგვეკეთებინა ერთობლივი სათხილამურო შვებულება შლადინგში ზემო სტირია, ფენომენალური სათხილამურო რეგიონი, რომელიც ხშირად მდებარეობს მსოფლიო თასის სათხილამურო რბოლაში და იმ ადგილას, სადაც ჩემი მეგობრები რეგულარულად მიდიან სათხილამურო თხილამურებზე.

მზე ჩასვლას იწყებდა და დროა, ძმის ადგილზე დავბრუნებულიყავი და ჩემოდნის ჩალაგება დავიწყო. ჩემს მეგობრებს დავემშვიდობე და მოვიწვიე, რომ კიდევ ერთხელ მოვიდნენ ტორონტოში. მე და ევალდმა, ანელისემ და მე კიდევ რამდენიმე საათი გავატარეთ მათ სახლში, როდესაც ჩემი გამგზავრებისთვის მოვემზადე და საკმაოდ მოწყენილი ვიყავი ჩემი მოგზაურობის მოსალოდნელი დასრულების გამო.

ეჭვგარეშეა, ეს ჩემი საუკეთესო ვიზიტი იყო მას შემდეგ, რაც 21 წლის წინ მშობლიური ქალაქი დავტოვე. ცხრა დღე საკმარისი არ იყო იმისთვის, რომ ჩემი ახლომდებარე ადგილის ღირსშესანიშნაობებიც კი გამომეკვლია. ჩემს ოჯახთან და კარგ მეგობრებთან მშვენიერი კავშირების გარდა, ბოლო რამდენიმე დღის განმავლობაში გავიგე, რომ შატია, ჩემი დაბადებული რეგიონი, უდავოდ იყო ტურიზმის სხვა მრავალი რეგიონი, რომლებიც ნამყოფი ვარ მთელ ჩრდილოეთ ამერიკაში და ევროპაში. .

შტირიას ულამაზესი პეიზაჟები, გარე დასვენების ფართო შესაძლებლობები, არქიტექტურა, ისტორია, მუსიკა, კულტურა და ბოლოს, რაც არანაკლებ მნიშვნელოვანია, გემრიელი სამზარეულო ნამდვილად მაიძულებს ისევ დავბრუნდე.


4 easy ways to extend the life of your camp tent

Your tent is not only a place to sleep when you are outside, but it also protects you and protects you from outside elements. Having said that, your tent deserves care and attention to help it prolong its life.

Here are some tips on how to take care of your tent:

Protect your tent floor

The main thing here is the place where you set up camp. The ideal area would be a spot and a level spot. Clean small debris such as rocks, twigs, pine cones and the like as this can cause a wound in your tent. To further protect the floor, use a footprint, ground cloth, which will give your tent floor an even smoother surface to exit. Lastly, do not insert foot wear inside!

Avoid the sun

The sun’s UV rays are not only harmful to your skin, but also to the surface of the tent. UV rays damage fabric and nylon fibers. Your best bet is to set up camp in a shady spot, but if you can’t find one, use a tarp in the shade of your tent. If you plan to go out for a while (hiking, fishing or backpacking), remove the tent from direct sunlight.

Keep food out

Do not bring food and eat inside your tent. Lots of insects come out of the woods and food attracts many of them. You don’t want insects to crawl all over your tent and try to chew through the fabric just to get to the food. In addition, camp food should always be placed in tightly closed containers to avoid bears and other wildlife in the camp.

Keep the tent clean

When packing, shake the tent well to avoid dust and dirt that may have accumulated both inside and out. It is ideal to wash it after each use to ensure that there is no dirt on the surface and also to remove Siberian dirt, which prevents its malfunction in the future. Do not forget to dry the tent completely before storing it freely in a cool, dry place in the bag.

Follow these simple tips to extend the life of your tent and you will be sure to enjoy its service for many years to come!

Kruger Park is a world-famous wildlife icon in South Africa

Kruger National Park, including its many wildlife reserves, offers visitors a unique African experience. The fencing between the game reserves has collapsed to form a huge area where animals can move and migrate freely. This large area is often referred to as the “Great Kruger Park Area”

Kruger National Park was established in 1889 to preserve wildlife found in the Louvain district of South Africa. This national park is almost 2 million hectares in size and when combined with the private reserves around it, makes it the size of a small country. The park is a world leader in advanced environmental management techniques and policies and boasts special species: 336 trees, 49 fish, 34 amphibians, 114 reptiles, 507 birds and 147 mammals.

There are also numerous archeological sites in Kruger Park that highlight the prehistoric occupation of man in this area. Bushman rock painting and restored Iron Age villages add to the enjoyment of visiting this area.

Greater Kruger Park hosts a lot of residential facilities that have a lot to do and see, making this a very popular place. Personal Game Reserves offers excellent accommodation and game viewing, where you will likely find the glories 5. Kruger National Park, with its self-catering facilities and self-service route, is very popular with travelers who like the freedom to set their own travel routes. The park also contains a lot of private concessions within its boundaries. They offer luxury and have walk-in guides to guide guests through game drives and bushes.

Visitors to South Africa who have a few days to go out in the safe may be interested in the “Kruger Park Flying Safe” where time is not planned.

Every year more than one million visitors visit the various lodges and holiday camps in this region. Due to the park’s popularity, pre-orders are required. Some camping in Kruger National Park takes place in advance of the year, during peak holiday periods.

The African bush is a place of contrasts. A place where there is a sense of exciting adventure, a sense of deep peace where the soul can unwind. I highly recommend a trip to the bushes of Africa if you have never been here. Sometimes it is difficult to describe a real wildlife event in Busus – every human feeling comes alive.

The world-renowned Kruger Park offers a wildlife experience that is among the best in Africa.

Our visit to Aquila and Kagga Kamma’s personal game reserves

The opportunity to provide you with details of the nearest tariff experience in Cape Town and spend the night talking to Mother Nature has captured our imagination this month. Packing a true learning style (light and effective) with just a small night bag, we headed east to the glorious and majestic Hottentots mountain peak in the Netherlands, in the hot, semi-desert of our little Carus.

Western Cape offers plenty of private game reservations and exclusive desert experiences, Colin & I have picked out two auspicious features to share this month, Aquila Private Game Reserve and Kagga Kamma Private Game Reserve, a three-cape town hour drive.

The four-star Aquila Private Game Reserve offers malaria-free gaming discs, a great 5-game area just a 2-hour drive from Cape Town. Surrounded by a semi-desert landscape of Little Carus, this landscape is beautiful.

Aquila’s Personal Games Reserve actively supports the early unfortunate community from the nearby town of River Tuvs. Under the auspices of the Aquila team, they employ more than 120 people, sponsored by a full-time teacher and local cricket team, among other major sustainable development programs that are crucial to our responsible tourism board.

They made a powerful way to eradicate invasive species of exotic wood and plant species. This ongoing program helps conserve water in a region that receives only 400 milliliters of rainfall per year! Throughout their baths, they use natural biodegradable bath products that support their environmental responsibilities. Very positive and creative actions!

Our experience at Aquila Private Game Reserve has left us. In different parts of South Africa, to spend time on many other features of the African Safari, we felt that Aquila was sold as they called it “Real Africa”. The cheeks and lions are in the enclosures and you can see that they are lined up and down the fence of their respective enclosures, the crocodiles are in a small water camp in the lounge to see and all the games are fed every evening, not quite the real Africa we think is authentic and what We can unite as “real Africa”. However, Aquila Private Game Reserve has the advantage that you can get very good wildlife, close up photos that can be positively appreciated at home with your friends when you share your African experience. You have the opportunity to see four of the Big 5! Even well-informed rangers rarely see mountain leopards, the 5th of the Big 5.

Colin and I met with General Manager, Leon, and Conservation Manager, Patrick. Two wonderful young gentlemen with passion, knowledge and dedication to both the environment and the guest experience. Aquila is a normally created day trip product and we both felt it was very “work in progress”. Aquila may offer an excellent safari option in the future. Right now, we feel it is expensive to have a common overnight stay for guests staying overnight or two.

The proposed dwelling is standard while the meals are pedestrian but well presented. Overall the service is good and the game rangers are knowledgeable within their responsibilities. It was a disappointment to be offered a lower level of quality semi-sweet South African sparkling wine, marshmallows and biltong in the afternoon game drive. Missed the opportunity to attract the hearts and minds of twelve guests in our car …….

Aquila offers two adventures and fun activities in the lodge in the equestrian safe and in the bicycle safe. Both offer unique experiences. The great advantage of visiting this property is you will find their comprehensive travel. For people in an environment left in Cape Town and surrounded by limited time to move through the wilds of Africa, precious photos and close encounters with animals are quite numerous. Common Thoughts, Come One Day! In the future, their conference facilities will be developed over the next six months, making a sensible choice of venue.

Hopping, skipping and jumping from the aqueduct to the north led us to even more spectacular scenery, climbing a mountain pass and some rough gravel roads to the southern Kederberg region. The four-star, 15,000-hectare Kagga Kama Personal Playground was our chosen destination. The last 16 kilometers of the dwelling house bore a unique resemblance to the rock formations of the river Bark found near the Kederberg. Hot (36 degrees), dry and almost lunar in character and feel.

Kagga Kamma Personal Game Reserve offers a desert experience with a cultural twist. Cederberg’s general area is known for its Bushmen drawings, while Kagga Kamma offers an informative cultural suit led by a fairly knowledgeable and experienced industry guide, Jaco, who is also the general manager. Jaco is a great host, passionate mother towards nature and has extensive knowledge about Bushmen. Time spent at Sabi Sands in the incomparable Mala Mala Game Reserve with Namibian heritage earned time in his company. The game, which is reimbursed in its reserve space, is just the usual game, Bondbock, Elland, Burbuschella Zebra, Red Racing, Claps Springer, and some such small species as ants and mines.

One of the important aspects of sales here is that there is no polluted place outside the city and in the city light, the stellar gaze is beautiful, has depth and is definitely exceptional (almost as good as Sutherland, see our Travel Advisor for September 2007). Kagga Kamma Private Game Reserve offers a unique, well-positioned mini observatory with a 10-inch telescope. Close-up view of the nearby moon, certain planets, constellations and other fascinating objects. Valuable experience!

Kagga Kamma offers unique accommodation. Ten imitations in a sandstone cave, such as buildings built against sandstone rock formations in their surroundings. Comfortable beds, fresh crunch, white linen and air conditioning are really welcome. Their “Outcrop” sleep ability is special! It just has to do it for you! Imagine, if you will, a natural rock drain, two shade trees and a wide expanse of endless vistas. Imagine a human intellect that will add to everything that is sought after for the luxurious well-being needed to entertain a person before sunset and on a beautiful day after sunset. Before sunset, we rode our bikes and ran all three miles between the main camp and the Outcrop. Our arrival is stunning. A truly baronial bedroom with a king-size bed, side tables, a hall area and a coffee table that includes all kinds of cuisine. With the African sunset directly in front of us, our host prepares his glasses, shines our paraffin bulbs, and then wisely disappears. We are alone to say goodbye to Mother Nature!

For those of you who have not yet experienced this, do it quickly, for those of you who are present, come here and let him review your sunrise story, all the animal actors on stage before you start arriving. . In the evening the sky was pale pink, deviated by crimson, then steel gray, the stars appeared brightness and depth. The black hole presented itself next to the South Cross, the shooting of the stars was numerous. An unhappy silence ensued, a black velvet night greeting our gentle fire. Peace, contentment, and loneliness were prevalent. Our picnic dinner was adequate but lacking in imagination, cold meats, some excellent cheese, chicken legs and a well-prepared and presented green salad with potato salad, all in handy plastic containers. Our African night sky speaks to you. Let the language hold your mind and hear the shaking of words, dreams, hopes and aspirations. Colin got up in the early hours of the morning to witness the rising moon shining all over in greasy white.

The sun rose in the background of our rock casting, warmth and light on distant hills, an ethereal awakening for the experienced traveler, the first stopwatch simply with soul food. It is a wonderful honeymoon if you are going to keep the peace and for those who want fifteen hours of continuous privacy. Because of the naturalness of this variant, it depends on the weather.

Overall our experience at Kagga Kamma Private Game Reserve was a pleasant learning curve specifically made with the Outcrop experience. We recommend Outcrop without hesitation, however, when evaluated against similarly focused properties in the region, their rates are high relative to the total value of the rest of the property.

Sumatra: An unhappy paradise full of adventures

Unlike its neighboring islands of Bali or Java, Sumatra does not attract many travelers and although this is what mimics the island, it is hard to understand why. It is the largest island in Indonesia and it has lots to offer; Jungles, orangutans, elephants, volcanoes, waterfalls, … in short: an untouched paradise full of adventure!

Gunung Luzer National Park

The home of the orangutan and Sumatran tiger, Gunung Leuser National Park is a wonderful place for jungle walks. Do not be disappointed that you will probably not see any tigers as my guide told me no one will see anyone and this will probably be the last thing you even ever look at.

Leaving before Bukit Logan, he did not last long until we were surrounded by orangutans and Thomas leaf monkeys. It was amazing to find out how well the guide knew how to behave around each orangutan as they all have their own personal qualities and some like to steal bags!


This peaceful village on the border of Gunung Luser National Park really stole my heart. There is so much to do here; Bathing elephants, river pipes, swimming in waterfalls and … all this surrounded by beautiful tropical forest. A perfect place to connect with nature.

While Indonesians are generally particularly friendly people, this is undoubtedly the place where you will meet the most cordial people in front of you. Always ready to help you and want to tell you about their culture, the guide will do its best to make your presence truly wonderful.

Also, elephants are wonderful animals and I want to see them happy. I’m not an expert, but I think I saw the faces of happy elephants in Tangkhan.

Sibayak volcano, Berastag

Mount Sibayak is one of the most active volcanoes in Indonesia and is spectacular in view. The smell of sulfur intensifies during the ascent and yellow rocks stand around it.

Surprisingly, when I used a sunscreen, my guide asked me why I always covered the earth with this white cream. He looked at me in shock at first and then started laughing uncontrollably when I said if the red would come out or not.

Samos Island, Toby Lake

Island to island! You will not only find beautiful landscapes here, there are also Batak people in Samosir, an ancient tribe who will be happy to teach you their culture. With their traditional dances, colorful ensembles and beautiful houses decorated with geometric designs, their culture will amaze you.

Banda Ache

At first, I was a little nervous, I was on Banda Aceh’s list of favorite destinations in Sumatra, but the culture shock I experienced there and the tsunami that remained in the city made my visit an unforgettable experience. Enough for one day in this city as a transit point to Pulau Wet was enough!

Governed by strict Sharia law, this destination is not for everyone, but if you decide to go there, it will terribly disappoint you.

The Banda Aceh was hit very badly by a tsunami in 2004 and affected the city. You will find an unusual view of the boats in the middle of the city or above the house, left intact as a memorial. The Tsunami Museum offers to find out what will make people endure a horrible experience and is worth seeing.

Pulu Veh

This is a small island located near Sumatra, easily accessible by ferry from Banda Asi. With its crystal clear water and white sandy beaches, Pulua Veh is a paradise for snorkel, dive or relaxation. There are so many exotic fish here that I felt like I was swimming in a natural aquarium!
