Cork, sky, streets and river Africa as most of europeans imagine it Landscapes and Elephants at Kruger’s park Shiduli Private Game Reserve, Limpopo Blackrock Castle – Cork city

Cork, sky, streets and river

I have found these view from Cork sad, dark, but also joyful and restful.

Africa as most of europeans imagine it

… Or at least people from the previous century…

Landscapes and Elephants at Kruger’s park

I could have stayed a month in this beautiful part of the planet. but it is time to go on these last photos from this national reserve in South Africa.

Shiduli Private Game Reserve, Limpopo

Apart from this racist American Lady guest* who thought my (black) father was a servant, I would probably have regretted to leave this elegant private reserve. I definitely recommend the experience as everything was perfect and down to the microscopic detail. Coming from a mixed background here in Europe, South Africa comes as a cultural […]

Blackrock Castle – Cork city

Let’s make a quick tour in the area of Cork, where a small but noticeable fortification has now been converted to an Observatory. Ideally reached with a bicycle, this castle has a restaurant as well and the coastal walk is actually beautiful.

Lowveld View – The green African Colorado

Here is a breath taking view of a green canyon. Located in the Mpumalanga, the Blyderiver has patiently shaped this natural wonder for centuries. I also have to recommend the hole road across the natural reserve and other points of views. I could not do all of them as I drove there a day after […]

Kruger Park day 2

Life is everywhere in the Kruger park. The park is extremely well maintained and all directions are well indicated. the circulation at night is restricted so every minutes of sun count. Most of the animals are used to the road traffic … apparently.

Kruger Park – entering the park

A couple of days of magic, to witness the beauty of this protected place on earth, there was so much to see in the Kruger Park! I felt lucky to witness what so many people fight to preserve. I will post more pictures in a next article. I believe I was one of these typical […]

Lisbon Falls

On the Road in Mpumalanga, you can stop at the Lisbon Falls.  With 92 meters, they are certainly the highest waterfalls in South Africa. It was even more impressive after the cyclone.

Pilgrim’s Rest, Mpumalanga, South Africa

Before famous for its gold mines, Pilgrim’s Rest is now a charming and famous  touristic stop in Mpumalanga. It is particularly interesting to visit and understand how this yellow stone shaped this area and the country.

UCC and surroundings

Cork without the University College could be like Harry Poter without Hogwarts or The Shining without the Overlook hotel…. lame wouldn’t it be? Anyway I leave these photos and will walk later on the other side of the city.

10 years of Capoeira for Mundo Ireland

Here is a short 12 minutes video of the last Mundo Capoeira team. The 10th anniversary celebrations took place in Dublin, Ireland in February 2018. People from Belgium, Luxembourg, Italy, Greece, Netherland, and believe me or not Ireland as well … (Cork, Mullingar, …) met for a very short workshop in order to make sure […]

Paris – Un doux hiver

Between clouds and sunny spell, let walk around and discover some of the typical views from Paris.

Toulouse – France

The pink city is famous for the aeronautic industry but if you spend more time in its centre, you may love the architecture, art, and night walk along the crowded quays after a warm day,

Saint Denis by night

La Reunion can give some perfect souvenir, I also remember how dodgy the main city looks by night…

Sheep Head – West Cork – Ireland

The walk doesn’t take too long on the way in. The view feels limitless but plan more time on the way back if you take the other way, the difficulty is not the same.

Flore réunionnaise

Colourful plants, unusual shapes, here are some of the little astonishing local plants found in La Réunion.
