    The Final Countdown @Kirstenbosch Garden

    December 31, 2018 in South Africa ⋅ 🌙 20 °C

    Time passes by so quickly - especially when you enjoy it. When this vacation came to an end on NYE, it felt like we just started. The same applies to the year 2018, that ended to make way for new adventures.

    Always when things are about to end you realize how great they were. Once again, I had to realize how beautiful and diverse our planet is and how lucky I am to be given the opportunity to explore it from all its different sided. I am also lucky that I could share it with somebody who is as curious as I am and who made the jouney throughout 2018 a special one. Looking forward to 2019, I expect some more time flying by and some new challenges ahead.
    THANK YOU 2018, WELCOME 2019! 🍾🥂

    Stellenbosch for Christmas

    December 24, 2018 in South Africa ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    Usually full of people searching for the best South African wine for their taste, Stellenbosch was deserted for Christmas as people spend their days (mostly doing some braai) with their families. For us, the festive days offered the opportunity to wander around (ghost) town and have some chill out days on our (almost private) wine estate including pool and tennis court. Merry Christmas 🥂🍾🍇Read more

    Tsitsikamma National Park

    December 21, 2018 in South Africa ⋅ 🌙 18 °C

    Sunset at Nature‘s Valley, the waterfall trail hike (3h roundtrip) and the kayaking tour at Storms River (kayak&lino by untouched adventures) the next day - I loved everything in the park of many waters (Tsitsikamma)!

    Jeffrey's Bay: surfers town

    December 18, 2018 in South Africa ⋅ 🌬 24 °C

    3 beautiful days of evening beachruns, sunny beach days (3h = sunburn!, so actually one day was enough), shopping (in surf outlets and in one of the best cafés I‘ve been to) and of our first self made braai (= South African barbecue) in the perfectly located Island Vibe hostel at the beach.

    The outskirts and the Wild Coast

    December 15, 2018 in South Africa ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Going south from Durban till Port Elizabeth is the region that is mostly skipped by tourists. One reason might be that South Africa is that large and going by car from North to South takes plenty of time. The other reason probably is that there are no special touristic sights on the way.

    For us, it was 2 long days of driving, mostly through rural regions and some busy midsize towns, and a stay over in a B&B in Kokstad. People there warned us to be careful in some of the towns and to not drive by night. We followed the recommendations and arrived safely to the next park and also to the especially touristic sunshine coast. What we saw on the way, though, seemed much more like daily South Africa and gave us a more authentic view on how the majority of African people lead their lifes.Read more
