It is not a normal ski video. Me and my friends @jonah_john and @j.o.n.n.y.9.9 have explored the places off the slopes and not only made crazy stuff but also found some cool locations. Let's go freeriding! 🎿 LINK IN MY BIO 😋
Back in South Africa 🇿🇦 Editing my pics from Namibia and will post them after I wrap up my recap of last year’s adventures...
Next up after Bosnia was Budapest, Hungary (Sept 22-28, 2017)
HUNGARY 🇭🇺 Country Number 9: After leaving the Balkans, I was back in the Schengen zone and Budapest was my first stop. I remember the flight from Sarajevo was super cheap (around $41)!
Europe was just starting to get cold at the time, but during the day when the sun was out, the weather was perfect. I took advantage of this and went on three free walking tours in Budapest. One was a general overview, one was a street art tour, and one was the communist tour. Tip: Budapest has so many free tours daily and they’re definitely worth checking out when you’re there!
The thing I liked the most about Budapest was the bridges. There were so many of them going across the Danube linking the Buda and Pest sides. The city from above looked beautiful at night when all the lights were turned on 🌃 In addition to the bridges, the famous baths, and the ruin bars, it’s a very affordable city to travel in.
I stayed here for a week and met up with a friend who I had met earlier in my trip and who snapped this photo on Liberty Bridge (thank youuu @judith_stuij 😉). I also met @anritoit who I unintentionally became travel companions with for the majority of my remaining weeks in Europe 💫👭 #lostgirlonearth
I can't believe that in a little more than a week I will have another mini vacation! 🍭 You can for sure say that I am in love with Spain as I was in Barcelona just last month & I am visiting Majorca in a bit more than a week 😍 If you couldn't tell already, I am super, super excited 🎉 Traveling is my favorite hobby as it just puts me in the happiest mood ever. I love exploring new places, connecting with locals and just learning something more about a new culture 🙏
Mission complete...65 hours and 383miles later...we've made it to the Turks & Caicos. All achieved using the power of mother nature ⛵
This passage saw us 75 miles offshore and beneath us some of the deepest ocean in the world at 26,000 feet (that's nearly 5 miles deep!) During the first 30 hours the wind was hovering around 22knots, seas were rolling at 7-8ft, we were averaging 7 knots and my sea sickness was in full swing. I lost count of how many times I questioned my decision to live on a boat 🙈
As forecasted things started to calm down on day two, the seas fell to 4ft, the wind to 15knots and Ben caught a Mahi Mahi which he prepped and served up as fresh sashimi
By day we were looking out at miles upon miles of deep blue sea, bright blue sky and no other sailboats in sight. During the night watch as I was engrossed in the Chronicles of Narnia audio book I was instantly brought back to reality by the brightest of shooting stars darting across the sky. Ben's night watch however had a different vibe when a disorientated flying fish ended up frantically flapping around on the cockpit floor.
By the third day we were both extremely tired, my sea sickness was still lingering on and we were eager to arrive. Finally at 10pm we made our way in complete darkness into the anchorage of Big Sand Cay in Turks and Caicos. This is the anchorage we suffered severe rolling in last year for 4 whole days. This time around...well, it was just as rolly, but we were immensely pleased just to be anchored and able to get a full 9 hours of sleep. The next morning we were up and out of there - a pleasant 5 hour sail took us to the calm shallow bank on which most of the Turks & Caicos islands sit. Here we found a quiet, beautiful and most importantly CALM anchorage.
Bliss...at last 😊

CAMBODIA - ANGKOR WAT
Number 13 on the list
The astounding temples of Angkor are a must-see experience. The Angkor Archaeological Park encompasses over a thousand temples, all the remains of different capitals of the Khmer Empire between the 9th and 15th centuries.
Rising early, journey to the old city of Angkor Thom and pass through the magnificent South Gate. At Angkor Thom’s centre is the enigmatic Bayon, a breathtaking temple of sculptural decorations. Also, admire the Elephant Terrace and the Terrace of the Leper King or why not continue to Ta Prohm, left in the grips of the jungle. Check out the full itinerary here
