On the way back home... :(

22 January 2017

After our hiking session we drove two hours to Port Elizabeth to have lunch at the beach and enjoy our last day at the pool of our Airbnb host.
Another hike today: Tsitsikamma river mouth We went to the three suspension bridges and hiked up to the lookoutpoint. Morning sports ahoi :) nice view and almost no people (they all came when we left πŸ‘Œ)

21 January 2017

YES, we are tourists: Did the 2h Segway tour in Tsitsikama (Storms River Village) to visit the big fat yellow tree and to get some pain in feet and knee. Worth it though. Happy to relax in the backpacker's hostel now...
Short stop in natural valley on our way to tsitsikamma :)

20 January 2017

SECOND really cool thing today: hiking Robberg natural resort. We took the middle hike which was around 5km and reeaally nice. The view was amazing and we even got to see some seals. Unfortunately there were no dolphins today :(
2 really cool activities today: FIRST - a "kind of safari" Well it's basically a mix between zoo and safari but was nicely organised by the Plettenberg Game Reserve Team. We saw zebras, ostrichs, lions, buffalos, elephants and many more :) πŸ…πŸƒπŸ˜πŸ¦πŸŠ

Usually not our travel style but today it's perfect :) relaxing at the pool all alone near Plettenberg bay - niiice 🍸🍹
Plettenberg Bay... All but spectacular...

18 January 2017

Nooo We are no food bloggers at all. ;-) But this was a highlight for vicky. Her first time trying oysters in the restaurant called south 34. These tiny little things costed around 1,5€ pP and tasted like the ocean 🐟
Sunset at the beach on leisure island :)
Knysna - a city for your retirement or a quick stop by for stunning views and big cakes!
38 degrees and we reach buffels bay :) yeeah! The water here is extremely cold though. We only managed to put our big toes into the water ;-) now heading to the next bigger city knysna
Today we drove back from Prince Albert (a really tiny town in the middle of nowhere). We drove again over 2 passes until we reached the city of knysna. Our motto today "der weg ist das ziel" ;-)

Scenic drive at the swartberg pass. Really epic views. Also without a four-wheel drive possible.
We spend a night in the dessert behind the swartberg pass in Prince Albert. After the 7 hours drive it's time for a little rest :)

Wine tram in Franshhoek. Nothing more to say #bumdirlzur

15 January 2017

picnic in Spier wine farm with some olives / wine grapes, wine and chiabatta. Stellenbosch
Finally the sun came and so did the penguins!! Juhuu🐧🐧🐧🐧 boulders beach penguins watching is an absolute touri-thing but these little creatures are really cute! Afterwards we had lunch in Simon's town which is a nice city to stop by
The most south-western point of Africa !! A windy hike which was absolutely worth it!
Look which wild animals we saw on the way to capepoint :)
Early morning we went to cape of good hope. A very unspectacular place... Bene went up that hill - can u find him on the picture? For vicky it was way too early an we haven't had any coffee before ^^

Groot Constancia is a nice wineyard near Capetown. We went to simons restaurant which has a nice garden to have lunch. We had steak and mussels (each around 8€ and it was delicious)! Wine tasting costs 85rand (around 5€) and u get 5 glasses of high quality wine. Then it was Vicky's first ride on the wrong side of the street because Bene did all the drinking.... But we survived - no worries ;-)
Walking on top of tablemountain is one of the best things u can ever do! If you do not want to hike up u better take the early access ticket to avoid long queues.

Botanical garden kirstenbosch - nice visit for 4€ only

12 January 2017

Lions head at night - what a view. Best is to go there around 7 to watch the sunset. Unfortunately there is a lot of traffic in high season.
By chance we found the Waal street - nice spot to take some pictures
Just do it - paragliding from lions head
What a view! From signal hill to lions head and table mountain. Easy to get there by car

11 January 2017

Short and non problematic stopover in Ethiopia (Addis). There was no pass control at all (lucky me). Quick and smooth transit with Ethiopian airlines. The flight was around 500€ from Vienna
