Kalk Bay Harbour

Kalk Bay harbour lies on the East Coast of the Cape Peninsula and lies in the False Bay Gulf. Growing up in Cape Town, Kalk Bay has always been a great post for watching seals, eating out and watching the fishermen come in with the catch of the day. The harbour walks also offer relaxing views of the ocean and a nice break away from the city. Let’s discover more about this small spot in the Cape.

Busan, South Korea

I was super excited when my bestie from Cape Town, South Africa emailed me in 2011 to say she was going to come and visit South Korea! I was only living in Seoul for about 3 months, and I was excited to show her around the city.

Me and a friend walking through Lima centre.

This will be my last and final post on my year living abroad in Peru in 2008. It’s my last
