London weekend trip


If you are visiting a world city like London for the first time and you know that you only have 2 days to enjoy it, this is my advice: Pick 1 area that you really want to explore and spend your whole day walking around, finding nice places and enjoy being there. On the 2nd day, you can visit the more touristic attractions and explore the city center. Especially when day 2 is on a Sunday when most boutiques are closed anyways.

Today is going to be a good day - London


From river to river – Northern Sweden


Call it the end of Europe’s winter or the beginning of an early spring, we made a trip to Kiruna in the Northern Sweden by the end of March to catch the seasons last snow. Although it was just a few degrees above 0 °C, there was more than enough snow to build an entire new city of snice (combination snow and ice) in stead of just the famous ICEHOTEL. Actually, it might be an idea for Kiruna to consider as they are planning to move the city elsewhere in Sweden. The reason for that is because the ground under Kiruna holds the worlds largest iron ore deposit so if the mining continues, they need to move the city entirely or it will collapse.

Relaxing at the winelands – South Africa


I couldn’t stop taking pictures from the Cape Winelands. The vibe is extremely relaxed, the valleys are so beautiful, the people are super friendly and the wine is delicious. I won’t spent too many words on this post, just view the pictures and imagine yourself being there…

Cape Town & Roadtrip – South Africa


Free as a bird, we made a road trip from South Africa’s winelands to Cape Town. This blue headed Poelepetaat didn’t only reflect my feelings, it’s also Africa’s national bird. Could there be a better guide?
