Ocean Lover

The best moments are the ones at the ocean…the colors, the wind in my hair, the smell of salt and sand between my toes… ♥ No wonder that I took mostly pictures of the Atlantic during the two weeks in the Cape region…

Namibia -Kookerboom Woud

On the way back to Johannesburg we passed Keetmanshoop and spent a night in the Quivertree forest rest camp. Right next to the camp there is a fascinating kokerboom forest and the light before the rain storm made a magical scenery.
Neither of us wanted to fly home after these three exciting weeks in Africa, but unfortunately we had to leave the next day and so a wonderful journey came to an end. But the end of a journey is the start of planning the next trip … so stay tuned 😀

Namibia – Sossusvlei

We spent two nights in Sesriem to see the dunes around Sossusvlei in the best light of the day…early in the morning and late in the afternoon. Unfortunately we had cloudy weather and very strong winds, so we missed the typical view of the region. But what we got instead was simply amazing…a mystical light and the sun between the clouds … an unforgettable experience!

Namibia – Skeleton Coast to Solitaire

The Atlantic Ocean appeared like a Fata Morgana when drove through the dry and dead region of the Skeleton Coast. We decided to take a deep breath of the salty sea air, but  Cape Cross is the home of a big colony of seals and the breath-taking smell of these animals made us carry on soon 😉 We spent a night in beautiful Swakopmund and then went on through the dunes near Walvisbay. The regions we passed were simply amazing, behind every corner you could find another world…
