This enchanting story written by 'Micha Hamel', performed by some of the most beautiful voices that I have ever heard &...

For someone who spent most of her childhood running around barefoot, my experience at the 'Barfüßpark Egestorf' was quite painful but lots of fun too. It's an outdoor park measuring 14 hectares which is situated inside the 'Lünebuger Heide' nature reserve. A 2.7kg path made up different natural substances such as glasses, acorns, salt, twings, mud makes for a very interesting barefoot walk through the park. The park also has a small cafeteria & lots of nice spots where one can picnick...

A simple walk to the beach in my village turned out to be an eye-opener to me about the small scale Fishing industry by the shores of Lake Victoria which is the 2nd largest freshwater lake in the world. As kids, during the school holidays, we would go back to the village to spend time with our grandparents & i remember that my grandfather used to own a boat.
