Kruger National Park: Our 3-day Safari experience

It’s been some time since I wrote my first post on South-Africa: The Ultimate Roadtrip through Incredible South-Africa from Johannesburg to Cape Town (in 3 weeks), so it’s definitely time to write the next! In this first post I only briefly touched upon the Kruger Park, and our experience was so wonderful, that I’d like to tell you more about it. And more importantly, show our best pictures of all the beautiful animals living there!

We stayed in Kruger Park from September 11th-14th 2018, which is in the wintertime – early spring. It actually appeared to be the perfect timing for animal watching, as winter is the dry season in South-Africa, and animals tend to get together at the limited water resources there are. It was actually still quite hot in this period of the year, so we were quite happy to not be there in the summertime. You spend a lot of time in your car, standing still, and with the sun burning that could get quite tough. However, good to note is that the nights are still cold, so also bring something warm to wear! I’ll now dive into other tips that will help you get the best Kruger experience you can get!

The Ultimate Roadtrip through South-Africa from Johannesburg to Cape Town (in 3 weeks)

Hi there!
Thanks for reading, I’m so excited to share this new post with you all! I’ve just returned from a trip to South-Africa, which was amazing! It’s a country I can recommend to anyone: Incredible diverse landscapes, wonderful wildlife, bubbly cities, friendly people, tasty food & wines, affordable prices (at least for Europeans) and the best sunrises/sunsets I’ve seen in my whole life! Okay, I’ll calm down now a bit and will tell you all about my travel itinerary with the wonderful places I’ve visited together with my boyfriend. As mentioned in the title, we booked 3 weeks and landed on Johannesburg and flew back from Cape Town, it was just enough to see most of the highlights we wanted but in the end, we wished we could have stayed longer, as we were so mesmerised by this beautiful country.

How to travel more often and find good deals – 5 tips!

Looking back the last 2 years, it was really wonderful. I encountered a lot of growth in my job, I had a solid base of friends around me, travelled to beautiful places and last but not least: I met the love of my life! I feel so lucky about all these things and I think that because of the fact that I am so happy, I found myself being less behind my computer writing blog articles and more out undertaking things. I ‘needed’ my blog less, to write down my thoughts, I had less concerns to overthink and was able to discuss them with my boyfriend. However, I still really love having my own blog and I want to keep my hobby alive! So hereby starting off with the first blog of 2018 (in July, damnit ;)).

Tips for preparing a vacation to Cuba

Hey there. It’s been a while! I personally take it as a good thing, have been distracted with fun things and not being behind my computer all the time.

So far, I’ve been to New York, last year to The Dutch Caribbean island Bonaire and now… Cuba! Continue reading “Tips for preparing a vacation to Cuba”

My top 5 highlights to see in beautiful Edinburgh

Right after Hogmanay (The Scottish New Year’s celebration), I visited Edinburgh and Glasgow with a friend. It was a trip I’ve been wanting to make for quite some years now. Since studying abroad in Ireland, I’ve fallen in love with Great Britain! From Ireland, I saw almost the whole country as you can read in my blog post: 12 tips for a great road trip through the wonderful country of Ireland. I also made a trip to Northern Ireland to visit Belfast and the amazing Giant’s Causeway. Furthermore, I’ve been to London a few times now for work and pleasure, but I never visited Scotland before. I assumed it would be similar to Ireland: Cozy pubs, beautiful landscapes and historic buildings. But I can definitely say: I liked Edinburgh better than any other city in Ireland!  Continue reading “My top 5 highlights to see in beautiful Edinburgh”
