Skeleton Coast. NAMIBIA

Shipwrecks scattered all over one of the most inhospitable coasts of the planet. With the cold Benguela stream, the fog, the desert and the ever blowing winds, no wonder the bushmen called it “The land that God made in anger”. Photos from 2011.

“Horses of Wind” Trail, Cadi Mountains. CATALONIA

With its 80 km and linking 8 mountain refuges, « Cavalls de Vent » is the most attractive trail on the Cadi-Moixero natural park. We did it within 6 days in summer 2009. All photos by Lluis Llaurado (I was too busy walking to take any picture sorry). My brother is posing proudly on the last photo on top of one of the summits.

An ancient Maya city from the classical period is located in the Puuc region, whose style is clearly recognizable for his ornated friezes and its omnipresent masks of stone representing the Rain God Chaac. Photos from 1996, some of them by Natxo Molinero.

Okavango Delta (2). BOTSWANA

More photos taken in Summer 2011.
The Okavango River doesn’t end on the sea but inland, creating an intricate and incredibly beautiful landscape of rivers, canals, pools and swamps, housing amazing wildlife. Visit the Okavango delta on a mokoro is a peaceful (though some mokoro polers are more experienced than others) and impressive experience, but it’s when you see the delta from above when it becomes an unforgettable place.
