Park Guell: it’s a jungle out there

Park Guell: it’s a jungle out there

I wiped the sweat off my forehead. My eyebrows knitted as my eyes attempted to squeeze out the sunlight. I cursed myself for not bringing my sunglasses on my little exploration. Overcast days in Barcelona are deceptive as the sun glances off the clouds into your eyes. Okay, let’s just take this one step at…

Living the Country Life at White Water Farm

Living the Country Life at White Water Farm

I took a sneaky weekend getaway to one of the Western Cape’s most colourful regions: the Overberg. This winter escape at White Water Farm took me straight back to my childhood days I spent in the countryside. We drove along the Whale Coast, passing through Hermanus and stopping just outside Stanford for our weekend getaway destination….

Sun’s Out, Guns Out: Longboarding in London

Sun’s Out, Guns Out: Longboarding in London

It’s light dreadfully early. The sun illuminates my room well before 5 am. For a morning person, it is like a siren going off. I usually drag my tired body out of bed to keep my cousin company downstairs while he entertains the little ball of fur. The plan for today was to be rustig. We had…

Peering through God’s Window in Mpumalanga

Peering through God’s Window in Mpumalanga

I stood on my tippy toes at the edge of the world. My eyes tried to pierce the haze to catch sight of the Indian Ocean beyond Mozambique. I am perched at God’s Window, approximately 1 730m above sea level. The precipice is part of the very eastern Drakensberg Mountain range that forms part of the…

Into the Wild: A Roadtrip to Onder Sabie

We geared up for a full day road trip into Kruger National Park. We started early in the morning with our hopes high to see the Big Five but settled for a different kind of magic near Onder Sabie in the south of the Kruger. The plan was to go deep into the Kruger today….

Sunny on Safari: Exploring Kruger National Park

Sunny on Safari: Exploring Kruger National Park

I was wriggling on my bed all night, anxious for the sun to rise. The rush of the Sabie river alongside our bungalow at Kruger Park Lodge kept me awake on the couch. This was my first safari experience this far east in the country. I was excited to explore a different kind of wilderness, and the…

Leaping around Lion’s Head

Leaping around Lion’s Head

Life has finally slowed down. The weather took a turn for the colder and the summer sun had migrated further north. The clouds came out to play and draped itself around Lion’s Head in the most inviting way. Oda and I geared up for our weekly hiking excursion. It felt good to get out again….

Lunch on top of Table Mountain

Lunch on top of Table Mountain

The morning was warm, but the early morning coolness still lingered in the indigenous forest. We zigzagged up the steep staircase that makes up the first half of the trail up Skeleton Gorge. We were only a third of the way up but our breathing was heavy and our hearts were racing. I paused to look…

Hiking up Devil’s Peak

Hiking up Devil’s Peak

I’m standing on top of Devil’s Peak, marvelling at the world. You can see every corner of Cape Town from this height, from the City Bowl to the Southern Suburbs, the forested Tokai region and even all the way to Gordon’s Bay. I breathe it all in. Silence. It was a golden morning. I could…
