About a month ago I decided to update my Couchsurfing profile as I downloaded the App a few years ago without ever using it. As I am busy planning another adventure for 2019 I was hoping to use the application to share meaningful experiences with local people when I travel.
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.
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.
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. […]
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.
After more than 24 hours of non-stop traveling, I finally started my Camino today. Walking out of Saint Jean Pied de Port I felt an incredible sense of freedom as I started my trek towards Roncevalles. To make things even better, the Napoleon route finally opened after a very cold and snowy winter. Starting […]
In 2012 I visited Spain for the first time and completely fell in love with this amazing country. The people, food, music, architecture and everything that goes together with Spanish life completely captivated me. Every visit to Spain has been with a group of friends and I am hoping to experience a different side of this way of life when I embark on a solo adventure in a few weeks’ time.
