i wasn’t planning on doing a post about this, but i received many requests after sharing our trip on instagram. if you want a short version just check out my IG…
i’m sure you’ve been there, having just visited your hundredth museum on holiday somewhere in Europe, the hundreds of years old frescoes all blurring into one as you walk glassy…

i really love the idea behind 12 hrs, a new travel site launched by The Locals photographer Søren Jepsen and writer Anna Peuckert. much like my own city guide to Cape Town,…
i went to barcelona once, it was rad. i didn’t take enough photos though – was probably drinking too much sangria.
it’s almost weekend, which means plenty of opportunity to spend hours at a cafe somewhere, drinking coffee (or gin or sangria) and talking crap. yes, let’s!
i already have a bicycle (which i love – it’s a black & white cruiser with white tyres) but i just can’t help looking at bicycle sites. the latest one, which my brother sent me, is globe bicycles. there’s something about white/cream tyres that makes everything classier, non?

more? ok. gazelle: (dutch)
and there are probably loads more i don’t even know about…. i wish everybody cycled (to commute, i’m not talking lycra-clad road hogging cyclists). if south african cities & towns were more bike friendly it would be a dream. like copenhagen.
continuing with the backward uploading of photos from my european travels, these are from a trip to prague.
once upon a time we took a train trip from prague to füssen then hopped on a bus to hohenschwangau and made our way up the hill to the neuschwanstein castle.

in each city ami asks 50 of its inhabitants to hand-draw a map to a place of their choosing, a place that is significant or important to them personally, for any reason.
from a trip to italy, 2003. i remember it being reported as the hottest italian summer in decades – that water was heaven.
