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.
Koh Samui is a small island off the Eastern coast of Thailand and is situated in the Gulf of Thailand. This island is a true gem, and it’s also very popular with tourists. I was lucky to visit the island twice. In this post I will just show the highlights of what you can do for the ultimate relaxing holiday on Koh Samui.
I had to go on a week-long study trip in Romania in 2015. It was part of the international exchange programs between my French university and a Romanian one. Romania is starting to invest more in developing its industrial and manufacturing industries as it opens itself up internationally. Romania has long been overlooked as a tourist destination. However, over the last 3 years, the country is becoming a popular travel destination as the country develops itself as an industry leader and brand.
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. Luckily her visit coincided with a two day-long vacation period in March so I decided to include a visit to Busan to do something special. It was my first time playing host and I wanted it to be perfect, so why not include a bit more if South Korea where we could both explore.
This will be my last and final post on my year living abroad in Peru in 2008. It’s my last
because I simply have nothing left to tell of my adventures.
Next year will be 10 years since lived there, and since compiling these posts, many of the good friends I had made there that I am still in contact with are suggesting a reunion. I would love that, as since then I have become a more seasoned traveller and I am better equipped to document my travels to. I suppose I’ll just have to wait and see!
While living in Peru in 2008, me and my friend decided to do a spur of the moment trip outside of Lima. We had a few national public holidays in the week that was celebrating Peru’s independence. We were sitting at a café, and dear old Evan Anderson suggested we try somewhere nearby. I agreed, plus travelling in Peru was super cheap. After much research, we chose a more off the beaten track place called Paracas.
Namsan Tower or also known as Seoul Tower, is the iconic broadcasting station that lies atop Namsan mountain that is situated in the middle of Seoul Tower. It has now become a part of Seoul’s landscape and a major tourist attraction. The main feature of the tower are its 360 degree views of the city, so it’s best to go up on clear days.
In 2013, me and a group of friends decided to spend a week in Bali for the New Years celebrations. This was the peak season, so keep that in mind when reading this. Bali is a popular destination because of it’s amazing beaches and coral reefs. In that particular week it was raining A LOT! There was non-stop rain for 3 whole days!
A few years ago, I went on a quick drive up to Stellenbosch and we spotted a cheetah sanctuary. We are lucky in South Africa. We get so much amazing opportunities to see wildlife, that most people only get to see on the National Geographic channels. Whether the animals are in their natural habitat or in sanctuaries, we are still lucky to be able to see them in plenty.
- I have been informed that the Cheetah Outreach has moved to Somerset West, about 20 minutes from Stellenbosch. Please refer to the website (below) for more details)
The Jardin du Luxembourg was one of my favourite places to take a break from my studies and get some fresh air. The garden was nearby my home in the 15th arrondissement in Paris, and it was the ideal place to catch some warm sun while enjoying the pretty views. The garden is much quieter than the popular Tuileries Garden by the Louvre, and much smaller, but it was pretty little haven to escape and unwind.
