Escape - travels through South Africa

Updated: Jan 26

"Collect moments. Not things."

"From Great Whites to Alpine Lights"

Our journey through South Africa unfolded like the pages of a storybook—each chapter a kaleidoscope of experiences, from the vibrant shores of Mossel Bay to eventually the snowy embrace of the Alps. Join me as I take you on a road trip filled with encounters with great whites, dances through magical forests, and moments of solace in the bush.

Before embarking on our road trip, we found ourselves in the enchanting coastal town of Mossel Bay. Here, the great whites of the bay unveiled their distinct personalities during thrilling encounters. We dove into the ocean to swim with playful seals, only to have one grab my fin, turning the adventure into an unexpected game. Capturing majestic albatrosses in flight and exploring magical forests became the rhythm of our days. Our time was sprinkled with elephant hugs in sanctuaries and horseback rides through the enchanting landscapes, all capped off by the warm embrace of our favorite local pub. After months on the road, the bustling city of Cape Town closed in on me, its concrete walls and relentless traffic contrasting sharply with the freedom of the open road. Faced with the decision to escape back to Europe, unexpected visitors knocked on my door, inviting me on a spontaneous photographic adventure. Breathing in the fresh air of possibility, I was reminded that life's twists often happen when we least expect them. The world through the lens became a canvas of endless possibilities, and the city's constraints faded away. December arrived and I headed back home, startled by twinkling Christmas lights, the comforting aroma of gluhwine, and the gentle fall of snow in the Alps—a stark contrast to the South African sun. Friends embraced me in the warmth of the holiday season, and I found myself rejuvenated by the magic of the mountains. The adventure is endless, and I am ready for the next captivating chapter.
