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…

South Africa ♥ On the road

This part of our journey was my favorite one…on the road with a 4×4 Toyota, tents on top, free, independent, sleeping in the wild, cooking on open fire…a feeling of freedom!

We started in Somerset West and went south…

There are many parcs and enclosures around Capetown, like the Cheetah Outreach in Strand where you can watch and learn about the beautiful wildlife of South Africa.

As you might already know, I love hiking and climbing on top of big mountains. And Helderberg mountain is always a challenge I love to do 😀

Another hike on my bucket list was the Tablemountain via Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden. And this time we did it! It was exhausting and hot, but the feeling on top was just marvelous!
