Two weekends ago we went to a cottage to chill out with Marlowe’s parents recharging our batteries for a lovely 3,5 days out of the city.
Trying to put together a top three about Toronto, I realized there was actually a top four of why I like the city so much.
It’s been two years since 2011, when Renaldo Jo and I completed two 100-km walks in one summer. We need to find a route to train.
Picking up the gang, we headed down to Hamilton and the waterfall-rich Spencer Gorge / Webster’s Falls Conservation Area. Waterfalls were seen and many clothes soaked.
How good it was to be in my old hometown, recuperating from jetlag and stress. We exchanged new vows in a cute place named Thorn, “the little white town”.
Some highlights about our trip to Swaziland where we enjoyed the music and arts festival Bushfire.
This is a very long article about Great Zimbabwe, an archaeological site in Africa. Lis and Marlowe visited it after their placements. If you like archaeology, you’ll like this article. If not, avoid.
Going to Kruger National Park, close to Nelspruit in South Africa, we enjoyed seeing amazing wildlife with the highlight being a cheetah!
Marlowe and I had some real bad luck in the last few weeks we were in Maputo. Two days before our fourth anniversary, we got robbed – yes, again! – in Mozambique’s capital.
I wrote this blog post last week, before some events changed our stay in Mozambique drastically. Because I continue to believe international volunteering can and does make a difference, I wanted to share this blog post with you nonetheless.
