In June/July, I was fortunate enough to travel to Zanzibar with my parents and siblings. Zanzibar is one of those places with such a tranquil aura that even a person with an overactive mind and inability to rest (me) is forced to slow down. We spent some time on the beach and also spent a few days in Stone Town. Zanzibar is a beautiful destination and is culturally rich too. Here are my photos…
This place has my heart and I would go back in the blink of an eye.
Munich is incredible. Its such a beautiful city with the loveliest buildings. We explored by bike, as one does in Germany. Its incredible how many cyclists there are! As a lover of riding my bike, I had such a blast! Anyhow, here are my snaps! (I don’t have too many snaps as my phone wasn’t on me for most of the tour. Again, I tried to absorb things through my eyes and not only my lens).
When in Rome, gelato is abundant and traffic rules are non-existent. You feel as if you’ve stepped into a parallel dimension where laid-back life, and hustle and bustle harmoniously co-exist . Romans are charismatic and love their city. I have never been to a city that values aesthetic appeal so much. The old buildings all painted in a cohesive colour palette make for a visual paradise. It feels like walking on a rather massive, exceptionally beautiful movie set. To say that Rome is beautiful would be an understatement.
The weather was really hot when we were in Rome, and it was such a pleasure to escape what has been a rather harsh winter in Cape Town.
Italian gelato is amazing. On just about every corner, you will find a gelateria – some are high-end, and others are little family shops – each with their own unique charm. I thoroughly enjoyed every spoonful!
I think its safe to say that Rome is a cultural and historical masterpiece.
