Paternoster and the Seashack

Paternoster and the Seashack

One of the oldest fishing villages on the West Coast of South Africa, is Paternoster.  It is about 145km North of Cape Town and a must visit for any traveler.  A few weeks ago I hopped onto a plane one ‪Friday morning‬ for a surprise visit to Cape Town as it was a good friend’s birthday.   He had no idea that his brother and I would be coming down and he had no idea that his wife hijacked his birthday weekend plans with friends by organising a massive get together in Paternoster.

This weekend I was once again reminded that the best traveling experiences can sometimes be found right on your doorstep. Don’t get me wrong, I am all for packing a bag and getting on a plane, however sometimes it is good to take some time and explore what your country has to offer.

Career and Travel 

Nearly five months after my solo journey I am craving adventure again. If I can take only one thing I have learnt from this year, it will be to stop postponing the things you really want to do. Looking back now, I am so grateful for the experiences and memories made during those two months and I am so excited for the next one.

Solo in Ibiza 

Solo in Ibiza 

Arriving at Rome’s Fiumicino airport at 5 am in the morning for a flight is probably not something that people will be excited by; however when you know that the flight you’re taking is leaving for the beautiful island of Ibiza, it changes things a bit.

Five Florence musts! 

Five Florence musts! 

Florence, or Firenze as the Italians call it, is the capital of Tuscany and probably one of the most magical cities in Italy. I spent three days here while traveling on my own through Italy and these are my five best experiences in Florence.

After finishing my Camino I was left with a week where I did not have anything planned as I did not expect to finish my pilgrimage in 27 days.  My initial idea was to just explore Santiago de Compostela, however I quickly realised that Santiago is not a place where you spend an entire week.  […]

Exploring Cinque Terre 

Exploring Cinque Terre 

If you find yourself in Italy wondering where to go next, the Cinque Terre area is definitely a must.  I am lucky enough to have a close friend in Lerici and when I initially planned to visit her I had no idea that this area is one of the most famous places in Italy.  It […]

Final Steps 

Final Steps 

It’s has been 27 days of non-stop walking and I am finally in Santiag de Compostela. What an intense month this has been. It has been one of the hardest things I have done in my life and probably one of the most rewarding. It feels like I started so long ago and yet the time has gone so fast.

Letting go at Cruz de Ferro

The Cruz de Ferro (Iron Cross) is a five feet high wooden pole with an iron cross mounted at the top.

Life of a Pilgrim 

Life of a Pilgrim 

Cannot believe that I have walked 300 kilometers in the last eleven days. What an intense journey this has been so far. I set out on my Camino with the idea to find time to mediate, read and blog everyday and yet there has been no time to do so as I have been so busy walking. I have come to realise that walking 25 to 30 kilometers a day actually takes time.
