“We travel, some of us forever, to seek other places, other lives, other souls.” Anaïs Nin
It’s been a while (hell yeah, two months) and a lot has been going on. There was the busy part full of exams, which turned out to my favor and also the ability to be lazy for a while. In addition I traveled a destination I’ve always wanted to visit: Zanzibar. It was a very spontaneous trip and I couldn’t be happier because I love blue warm water, happy people and the smell of fresh spices. And you find it there, all of it. It is still a very untouristy spot and I was told the oldest hotels are only 19 years old. Compared to egypt and other countries I’ve visited it’s incredible how beautiful but uncrowded the beaches are. Above you find a small selection of impressions from Zanzibar.
Suitable for the endeavor to understand the smell of most spices my special someone had a big book present for me and since then I’m occasionally lost to the world of aroma for a few hours. It is incredible how much depth you can add to sensory combinatorics. My favorite Zanzibar spices are the pink curry, the fresh vibrant turmeric powder (which I use as a mask or in yoghurt drinks abundantly) and traditional pilau spice (mostly cinnamon, cardamom, black pepper, cloves and garlic) which I bought right off the spice farm we visited. So if you are looking for a destination for your next adventure I can recommend Zanzibar with all my heart. Lonely beaches, very warm and humid climate and glass clear water without the harrassment of minute-by-minute vendors or -any- mosquitos if you travel the right season. Amazed, Ea
