Photostory: Seoul Searching

Well, we are back! Back from almost losing my mind. It has been an insane couple of months. From cancelled flights to landing at the wrong airport to rebooking a missed flight to the wrong continent (my goodness, it was the wrong hemisphere!) to almost burning a few buildings to the ground. I don’t know […]

Photostory: Incredible Connections

As I am about to close a chapter of my journey, I can’t help but think of all the wonderful memories and experiences I have had in the last two years. I had neglected my website for a while as I plot and plan the next move. Things have been rather slow and unpredictable but […]

Life Below Zero: Snowboarding

I now have a reason to love the harsh northern winter! There are a few things you can enjoy when you are approximately 2300 km from the Arctic Circle…in the middle of winter. I seem to love early morning adventures; waking up at 05:15 am to catch the bus to the mountains is a breeze. […]

Sunday Beach Stroll..

It sounds more romantic than it should. And, it is winter yet we had a cloudless, sunny day. Yea, ridiculous, I know.. It was a little too busy just because it was the Half Iron Man competition. I still enjoyed a 4 km walk. A little bit of reading. A little bit of people-watching. A […]

No Man is an Island: Ben Howard Live in JHB, Zoo Lake..

Ben Howard live in Johannesburg on the 25th of July 2015. I have been meaning to write about this amazing weekend without sounding like a complete creep. I left for JHB on Friday evening. I don’t mind long bus rides, really. It is cheaper, which is the most important part! Hah! It was pouring and […]

Chilly Ferry Boat Ride to Buyukada, Prince’s Islands..

The morning I decided to go to the Prince’s Islands, it was a little gloomy and really, a normal person could have postponed it. I was adamant though. I was set on going so I did. I should have dressed more appropriately, you know. Warmer clothes and the likes. I met an American (originally from […]

Istanbul: Belgrad Ormani, Long Bus Rides & Tea

Before I left for Istanbul, I had asked my host for any hiking spots nearby. His response, “Istanbul is hilly so every day will feel like a hike…or, you can go to the Belgrade Forest.” I was sold as soon as he said forest! Who doesn’t want to speak to the ents in the forest! […]

Istanbul: View from the Galata Tower and Sultanahmet

As you may have gathered, this was my favourite spot. I stopped by around the vibrant galata tower or walked passed it every day! This time, I decided to give up that 25 TL and take a trip to the top of the tower to see the breathtaking panoramic view of the city. It was […]

Autumn Hike in Injisuthi, Drakensberg..

I can use my limbs again! Also, what I did not know was that you find little boys shouting out “SWEETS” when you drive past. Apparently, it is quite common in the more rural townships. We had about four boys herding some livestock shouting out for these sweets. We had to stop and wait for […]

Drum Circle: Fire in the Park..

This is one of the best ways to spend a gorgeous evening. A little bit of drummin’ and strummin’, a little bit of fire and a bit more conversation. Let’s not forget the wine. The wine is rather important for such a glorious occasion. Every Wednesday at 19h30, there is a drum circle at the […]
