Antelope Canyon, AZ

One week ago my friend Emma and I did a short (as in two days, definitely not in length) road trip all around the Grand Canyon, USA. Unfortunately, while driving into the South Rim a snow storm struck resulting in that we did not see a single thing. Luckily, prior to that day we stopped…

The Smoke that Thunders

The Victoria Falls, a natural border between Zimbabwe and Zambia, is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World (together with Aurora Borealis, Grand Canyon, Parícutin Volcano, Harbor of Rio de Janeiro, Mount Everest and the Great Barrier Reef) and I was lucky to visit this majestic waterfall when traveling through Eastern Africa in…

Memorials in Washington D.C

My favorite part when visiting Washington D.C last week was not only the many free museums and the lovely warm fall weather, but in fact the many memorials that can be found in downtown D.C, also refered to as the National Mall. I’ve, like most people, seen the majority of these sites in the news…

Climbing the Table

The first thing you’ll spot with your eyes when arriving in Cape Town is Tabel Mountain. With its elevation of 1084 meters, The Table give you a magical look of the city. Most tourist choose to go up the top using the cable way (tickets are R135 one way,  round-trip is R255) but I dare…

Perfect fall daytrips starting out in the Twin Cities

My favourite season of the year is probably early autumn. I love the fact that the trees are starting to shift in color, that the air is getting cooler making the perfect conditions for wearing knitted sweaters, socks and scarfs. Moreover it gets darker earlier in the day, which invites to tea drinking inside with…

Nashville, TN

One of our detours while driving down the Great River Road in 2015 was a two day stay in Tennessee. One day was spent in Nashville and the other one driving around this beautiful state with a quick stop in Lynchburg – home of Jack Daniels whiskey (separate article will be posted shortly). My dad…

St. Louis, MO – the Gateway to the West

St. Louis was to me a nice surprise when driving down the Great River Road in 2015. To be honest, I didn’t know much about the city and when researching it I couldn’t find any particular landmarks worth a visit, except perhaps the Gateway Arch. Nevertheless, when arriving in July last year I knew from the…

The lake of the flamingo

Always been amazed about pink birds with long necks who likes to balance on just one leg? Well, if you don’t want to go to South or Central America to spot one, you can always visit Lake Nakuru National Park in Kenya. This parked opened in the 1960’s and originally included just the lake which…

The beauiful scenery of Lake Bunyonyi

While gorilla trekking in Uganda, we camped at Bunyonyi Overland Resort which is just by Lake Bunyonyi and offers beautiful scenery. The Resort has several cabins and rooms to rent but if you’re traveling on a budget it’s possible to put up your own tent on the lawn like we did. They’ve also got a…
