Once across the Namib

The weather only allowed that on a few days this season: the flight to the west over the Namib. Yesterday the forecast had promised a visit to the desert, even a convergence on the border mountains between the Namib and Kalahari should develop.

Stay fit in the land of milk and honey

A cyclist in the desert? Yes! Yes, Namibia is not just a paradise for glider pilots And the Bitterwasser Lodge with its excellent cuisine is a real land of milk and honey. Unfortunately, both of them bite each other a little. Just enjoying doesn't work in the long run.

The season turns up again

Anyone who thought the season in Bitterwasser would slowly end in January can rub their eyes. After the quarantine obligation for Namibia returnees was lifted, many pilots decided spontaneously for a visit.
