Cape Town has it all

Western Cape, South Africa, and Citytrip
Cape Town is a popular tourist destination in large part thanks to its natural setting (with Table Mountain & the nearby Cape of Good Hope) and because of its western feel it's a very accessible multicultural city. We came in to Cape Town with wild expectations, and it didn't disappoint.

Kruger Park safari

Mpumalanga, South Africa, Safari, and Nature
Along with the Serengeti, Kruger National Park must be one of Africa's most iconic safari destinations. It is home to an astounding diversity of wildlife, including the Big Five (buffalo, elephant, leopard, lion & rhino.)

Explore South Africa

South Africa
We wanted to do something different this year. A culture and experience that we're not used to. What about a safari in Africa? I was told that South Africa is a great place to start exploring Africa if you've never been there before.

Seattle, Rain City indeed

Washington, USA, and Citytrip
Seattle is located in the north-west corner of the United States so you should expect some rain. You could even expect it to rain every day if your timing's as lousy as mine! Who would've thought late October could be so wet?

A weekend in London

It had been my 30th birthday and 2 of my friends were about to reach that same milestone. When we were younger, we used to go on vacation together, but that was 10 years ago. Our girlfriends got together and booked all 6 of us a weekend to London.

Award of the most waterfalls goes to Plitvice

Croatia, Nature, and UNESCO
Friends who learned about our plans to visit Croatia were quick to recommend the Plitvice Lakes, easily Croatia's most famous national park. On an area of only a few km² are 16 of the most beautiful lakes and I don't know how many waterfalls. Too much to count! The national park is a lot bigger, but let's be honest, you're only coming for the lakes.

Emperor Diocletian's retirement home: Split

Croatia, Citytrip, Beach, and UNESCO
Our tour in Croatia was amazing and so was Split. It's not as unique as, say, Dubrovnik, which almost seems stuck in medieval times. While Split has a lot of history (with Diocletian's Palace), it is a modern city and - unlike Dubrovnik - it's not overrun by tourists, although you'll still find a ton of them.
