An experience to add to your bucket list

If you ever plan on visiting the island of Cebu in the Philippines, be sure to set aside one day and travel down South for an amazing canyoneering experience.  This was definitely one of the highlights of my recent trip to this amazing country.

Swimming with whale sharks

I always imagined this experience to be one where I submerge into clear blue waters, felt the calmness of the ocean, overwhelmed with emotion while swimming next to one of these magnificent animals.  I imagined taking in the moment as I floated next to one of the biggest creatures in the world.  Unfortunately, this was not the case at all.

They say the older you get, the faster time goes and as the years pass me by, I can relate to this more and more.  This year started with a bang and looking back over the past three months, I cannot believe how much has already happened.  I started this year with many goals and I can honestly say that I am happy with what I have achieved so far.

Sometimes the best experiences are right at your doorstep.  I’ve been meaning to visit Lake Oanob for some time now and finally got an opportunity this last month.  Described as a place where body and soul is in harmony with nature, this is one of the very few places in Namibia with an abundance of water.

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.

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.
