To finish every week travel-inspired, I tell you every Friday about one of the photos of my blog’s header.
This week, I’ve selected a photo taken in December 2007 in Mauritania. It shows a camel having some rest after a long day hiking in the desert.
We walked for four days in the desert around Atar, an incredible region where pretty much all types of desert landscapes can be seen in just a few days walk.
We had four camels with us, to all of which we gave nicknames
- Oreilles de Coton had very cute white cotton fur ears
- Joey Starr was named after the French rapper, for being a little bit aggressive
- Mijn Favoriet was my Dutch travel companion’s favourite, as you will have understood from the name if you’re not too hermetic to Dutch language
- Chewbacca was obviously named after the noises he made, and he is the one we can see on the header photo
