Favourite Travel Quotes

With this blogpost I share 20 of my favourite Travel Quotes. I am a bit obsessed with collecting travel quotes and have decided that I will share some of my favourites with you. I thank all the travellers, wanderers and adventurers who came before us and who gave us these inspiring quotes, most likely derived…

A Glimpse of the Cederberg Mountains.

The Cederberg mountains, just a couple of hours’ drive from Cape Town, have captured my heart and imagination. It is a geological wonder, sculpted by wind and water over millions of years creating dramatic rock formations and views. I can not quite remember when was the first time I laid my eyes upon them but…

Die Richtersveld

Die Richtersveld in Suid-Afrika se Noord-Kaap provinsie, met sy ruwe terrein en temperature wat bedags ver bo 40 grade Celsius kan styg, is ‘n besonderse plek. Bring dus gerus genoeg sonskerm, beskermende klere en hoede. Ek het reeds twee keer die geleentheid gehad om dit te kon besoek. Dit is ‘n droë, bar woestyngebied en…

One World 365

It has been a crazy year so far and I did not get much time to upgrade the blog. I got back from Sweden in January. Travelled to interesting places in South Africa and finally graduated from university! What a proud moment! A big thank you to the people who shared that moment with me…

Festival of Light – Sofiero 

A couple of weeks ago I attended the Festival of Light at Sofiero. Sofiero is situated just outside Helsingborg and is reachable by bus or car. It belongs to the Swedish royal family and is open to the general public.  The palace grounds at sofiero were transformed into a fairytale world by thousands of candles…

Helsingborg- city by the sea

I have been in Sweden for almost a year but have yet to write about the wonderful city of Helsingborg  (Well I am writing now!). It is a place where I spend most of my free time as it is only a 30 minute bus ride from where I reside. It has been my salvation…

Croatia: Mediterranean Dream

Visiting Croatia was like reconnecting with an old familiar dream. A Dream I have been dreaming and nurturing for as long as I can remember. I do remember when my fascination with this breathtaking country started: I once saw a picture of Dubrovnik in a travel magazine and my heart was sold right on the…

Walk The Line Glass Exhibition 

Recently I had the privilege of attending a glass exhibition at the Dunkers Kulturhus in Helsingborg, featuring artists like Ditte Johansson, Fredrik Nielsen, Åsa Jungnelius, Teresa William Waenerlund, Karl Magnus Nilsson, Nine Westman, Ingalena Klenell, Birgitta Ahlin and Sirkka Lehtonen. All Swedish artists. The exhibition is called “Walk The Line” and is currently on show…

Sweedse Frikkadelle 

Ek is nie ‘n danige liefhebber van rooivleis nie, maar hierdie Sweedse frikkadelle was heerlik plus dit is so eenvoudig om te maak met bestandele wat reeds in jou koskas is. Niks eksoties nie maar tog smaaklik. Ek het besluit ek moet eenvoudig leer hoe om ‘n tradisionele Sweedse gereg te maak voordat my jaar…

Ystad – A Swedish Gem

“To move, to breathe, to fly, to float, to gain all while you give, to roam the roads of lands remote, to travel is to live.” I am starting this blog entry with a quote by Hans Christian Andersen, who was a Danish writer. It embodies how I feel about travelling. Travelling not only broadens…

Churches & Cathedrals

The past two weekends I have ventured into nearby cities and done a little exploring. The cities I visited were Helsingborg and Lund in Southern Sweden. In both these cities I came across two amazing church buildings which captured my imagination. In Helsingborg it was St. Maria church and in Lund I awed about the…
