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.
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.
The Greek island of Skopelos is one of several islands that make up the Northern Sporades island group. As one of the greener islands with very dramatic cliffs, the island is a popular wedding destination. After spending an entire week on the island in 2015, here are my top five things to do in Skopelos.
