(Drone) Pictures ANGUILLA

Anguilla was colonized by English settlers from Saint Kitts in 1650, and administered by Great Britain until the early 19th century, when the island - against the wishes of the inhabitants - was incorporated into a single UK dependency along with Saint Kitts and Nevis. Several attempts at separation failed. In 1971, two years after a revolt, Anguilla was finally allowed to secede; this arrangement was formally recognized in 1980 with Anguilla becoming a separate UK dependency.

Anguilla has few natural resources, and the economy depends heavily on luxury tourism, offshore banking, lobster fishing, and remittances from emigrants. Increased activity in the tourism industry, which has spurred the growth of the construction sector, has contributed to economic growth. The island is made of limestone, providing many caves.

(Drone) Pictures SINT MAARTEN

The northern, French side of the island is known as Saint-Martin, and is 54km² (21 square miles) in area. The southern, »Dutch side« of the island is known as Sint Maarten, and is 41km² (16 square miles). The Dutch side, Sint Maarten, has become a leading destination in the property market with more and more developments being constructed. There are high-rise flats and waterfront communities, all of which are popular to buyers, especially Americans.

Many large resorts have been built and on many days cruise ships flood Philipsburg with their passengers. Philipsburg is one of the Caribbean's best shopping towns. If shopping's not your thing, you can sit out back on Philipsburg's harbour beach and have a drink. Or play at one of the casinos just down the street. There are nine on this side. When it all gets too mellow, go rip it up with a 4x4 excursion.

(Drone) Pictures SAINT KITTS AND NEVIS

Saint Kitts and Nevis are a pair of tropical islands in the Caribbean, about one-third of the way from Puerto Rico to Trinidad and Tobago. As if it were the custom in the Caribbean, St-Kitts and Nevis changed hands many times between English and French, which has left it a heritage of cities with names from both countries. Contrariwise, the architecture there is very Anglo-Saxon in the Victorian style and especially in downtown Basseterre.

The islands became an associated state of the United Kingdom with full internal autonomy in 1967. The island of Anguilla rebelled and was allowed to secede in 1971. Saint Kitts and Nevis achieved independence in 1983. In 1998, a vote in Nevis on a referendum to separate from Saint Kitts fell short of the two-thirds majority needed.

4K Drone Footage: 1 Minute in... DOMINICA [DJI Phantom 4]

Dominica is a Caribbean island country between the Caribbean Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean, about one-half of the way from Puerto Rico to Trinidad and Tobago. It is often known as »The Nature Island of the Caribbean« due to its spectacular, lush, and varied flora and fauna, which are protected by an extensive natural park system.

The most mountainous island of the Lesser Antilles, its volcanic peaks are cones of lava craters and include Boiling Lake, the second-largest thermally active lake in the world. Should not be confused with the Caribbean nation of the Dominican Republic. Dominica was the last of the Caribbean islands to be colonised by Europeans, due chiefly to the fierce resistance of the native Caribs. France ceded possession to Great Britain in 1763, which made the island a colony in 1805.

(Drone) Pictures MARTINIQUE

Martinique is a Caribbean island that is an overseas department of France in the Caribbean Sea, north of St. Lucia and south of Dominica. The island is dominated by Mount Pelee, which on 8 May 1902 erupted and completely destroyed the city of Saint Pierre, killing 30,000 inhabitants. In the South of the island, there are many beautiful beaches with a lot of tourists. In the North, the rain forests and the black sand beaches are worth seeing. The interior of the island is mountainous.

Martinique is an overseas department of France and retains both French and Caribbean culture. The island cuisine is a superb blend of French and Creole cooking that is worth trying. The north part of island lures hikers who seek to climb the mountains and explore the rain forests while the southern portions offer shopping and beaches for those who chose to just relax.

(Drone) Pictures SAINT LUCIA

Saint Lucia is a British Commonwealth country that is an island in the Caribbean, off the coast of Central America. It lies between the Caribbean Sea and North Atlantic Ocean, north of Trinidad and Tobago. The twin Pitons (Gros Piton and Petit Piton) are striking cone-shaped peaks south of Soufriere that are one of the scenic natural highlights of the Caribbean.

Tourism is vital to Saint Lucia's economy. Its economic importance is expected to continue to increase as the market for bananas becomes more competitive. Tourism tends to be more substantial during the dry season (January to April). Saint Lucia tends to be popular due to its tropical weather and scenery and its numerous beaches and resorts. Other tourist attractions include a drive-in volcano, Sulphur Springs (at Soufriere), the Botanical Gardens, the Majestic twin Peaks »The Pitons«.

(Drone) Pictures SAINT VINCENT AND THE GRENADINES

Saint Vincent and the Grenadines is an island nation in the Caribbean, north of Trinidad and Tobago. The main island of Saint Vincent has most of the land area and population of just over 100,000. The many small islands and islets of the Grenadines trail in a curve spanning more than 60km to the south, where the southernmost Grenadines are part of the independent island nation of Grenada. Bananas and other agricultural products remain the staple of this lower-middle income economy.

While the English were the first to lay claim to Saint Vincent in 1627, the French would be the first European settlers on the island when they established their first colony at Barrouallie on the Leeward side of Saint Vincent shortly before 1700. Carib Indians aggressively prevented European settlement on St. Vincent until the 18th century.

Barbados - back in the Caribbean

Barbados has experienced several waves of human habitation. The first wave were of the Saladoid-Barrancoid group, farmers, fishermen, and ceramists who arrived by canoe from Venezuela's Orinoco Valley around 350 AD. The Arawak people were the second wave, arriving from South America around 800 AD. Arawak settlements on the island include Stroud Point, Chandler Bay, Saint Luke's Gully, and Mapp's Cave. According to accounts by descendants of the aboriginal Arawak tribes on other local islands, the original name for Barbados was Ichirouganaim.

The name »Barbados« comes from a Portuguese explorer named Pedro Campos in 1536, who originally called the island Os Barbados (»The Bearded Ones«), after the appearance of the island's fig trees, whose long hanging aerial roots resembled beards.

Drone Pictures JERICOACOARA / Brazil

Jericoacoara is a place removed from the hurried modern world of screeching sirens, maniac deadlines, traffic jams and endless lineups. A place where streets are paved with sand, where beaches stretch as far as the eye can see and where warm water marries with palm swaying breezes. Until about 20 years ago, Jericoacoara was still a secluded and simple fishing village. There were no roads, no electricity, no phones, no TV's, no newspapers, and money was rarely used.

Since 1984, the area around Jericoacoara was declared Environmental Protection Area (APA) and became a National Park in 2002. This brought many building restrictions and tourism controls what help to preserve the area. Electricity arrived in the village and today, hot showers and air conditioning are no longer luxury articles. However, illumination of the streets is forbidden by local law.

Bom dia, Brazil! Carnival Pictures 2017

One year after the another, it was again time for the craziest party on this planet: the Brazilian carnival! This year, I have spent the pre-carnival in Sao Paulo and moved on to Rio de Janeiro for the real and pure carnival madness. I was accompanied by my friend David and on my birthday, I could also meet my German friends Rebekka, Melanie and Sebastian, so I had a great time turning 31. We've celebrated on the streets of Lapa and went to the bar at the Caipihostel.

The other days, we have spent at random blocos around this stunning city and enjoyed the Brazilian way of life. On top, we have visited Cristo Redentor for the second time (to do at least some sightseeing) and went for a walk along Copacabana and Ipanema. During our time in Rio, we stayed in Santa Teresa, which is centrally located in Rio, though we were in need of using Uber quite often. The blocos were crazy - here, you will find some of my favorite pictures of the so called »Beatles Bloco« (Bloco Do Sargento Pimenta) Enjoy!

A weekend in unqiue Istanbul

Istanbul, incredible and unqiue Istanbul, was the last stop along my tour through the Caucasus. Hoping for some nicer temperatures, I was highly disappointed, as the thermometer was close to the freezing mark. But: it was Istanbul and I wanted to soak up the atmosphere of this bombastic city as much as possible. As I was is Istanbul in 2013 already, I knew the spots that I wanted to see again already: everyone should have visited this city at some point!

Hagia Sophia, Galata Tower, Grand Bazaar, Taksim Square and just getting lost in little streets - these were the main targets. And, of course, getting some Turkish Delights. After a weekend there, I have left Istanbul today for the city I love the most: Barcelona. Spain is the last station before hitting South America on Thursday. The carnival 2017 is calling, and so I'll land in Sao Paulo for the pre-carnival and will head to Rio de Janeiro for my birthday party and carnival.
