Top 10 unforgettable places (by Elsa)

Now that the dust starts to settle, I start to see more clearly the places that have marked me the most. When it comes to the order of them I ranked the list the first time on the plane back to Stavanger but since then whenever I rank them again they switch places sometimes. But I still include the same ones in my top 10 and they have one thing in common: given the chance I would definitely go back in an instant.

Cape Town – definitely a wonderful surprise. From the mountains, to the white sand and blue water beaches, to the wine farms and delicious tastings, this was an amazing place to be. Add the chance to be at the most southern point in Africa (part of the old glory days from Portugal), the view from the Table Mountain, the V&A waterfont and the beautiful African penguins and this is a difficult combination to beat!

San Francisco – I always thought I would like SF and it did not disappoint. The European feel of the city, the outgoing people, the great weather and the views around the bay are the things I miss the most, together with the cute sea lions 🙂 Continue reading


Johannesburg and Pretoria – Family and Fun!

A long long time ago Nuno was born in South Africa (ok, not that long, just teasing you!). And lucky for us family still lives here: aunts, uncles and cousins. It was great to be able to spend some time with all of them while we were there. We always wish we had more time but that also gives us an extra reason to come back in the future or to host them in Norway.


Our time here was really about enjoying family dinners, lunches, stargazing and many delicious cocktails! All this in between our trips to Kruger National Park, Cape Town and Mauritius.
