The Coromandel

A few days after the re-humanising women, reigniting conversation show, my sister Rachel invited me on a jaunt to the Coromandel.  The timing was perfect, it was just what I needed.

I thought you might enjoy a visual jaunt –
I didn’t always have my camera,
so there are many amazing sights missing,

but I think you can still get the picture.

To all my friends who were part of/helped with, the show this is dedicated to you too.

The comments & feedback from our show have been truly inspiring.  

Thank you

    I can smell the kiwi summer sand, that pungent mix of dust and salt, with a whiff of old seaweed thrown in for good measure.
    Hope the rest you enjoyed stays deep within you, bringing a lasting peace and good health.

    Thanks for sharing Alex.

    Thank you or sharing these pictures, Alex.
    Last summer, I did a walk on the Teufelsberg. I actually intended to visit the abandoned CIA station, just to find out that you have to pay to enter that area. So I walked through the forest while lots of mosquitos sucked the blood from uncovered parts of my skin. When I wandered down the downhill-trail I heard some kind of hard style techno, somebody were playing from somewhere. I took care that I moved through the parts of the trail which are unaccessible by bikes, so that no mountain biker would accidentaly run over me.
    I am still happy that I did this walk despite the aggravations.

    I drop this video I’ve found, just to let you experience a little piece of Teufelsberg:
