One of the things I like a lot is that my dad drew my birth card. A birth card is an announcement we send in the mail when a baby is born, which is apparently not a global thing. My dad’s not a professional artist at all, but making the card himself adds so much […]
I’ve celebrated six Christmasses since moving to South Africa, but only half of those I was actually in the country. Of those three, one was filled with wedding prep (we got married on the 28th of December). So we decided to stay in the country and travel around a bit. Garden route We started our […]
It had been a while since Kim and I had been on a trip that didn’t involve family visits. We love our family, but we also love exploring and road tripping, so after the stress of renovating our place, we went for a 9-day road trip. Coastal part We chose to do the longest leg […]
Whenever we visit my in-laws who live in Mpumalanga, close to Kruger National Park, we sneak in at least a short visit. Last July, we surprised Kim’s dad for his birthday. Even though we were there only for a long weekend, we still went into the game park for a few drives. I hadn’t brought […]

There were several animals that I saw for the first time: tsessebe antelope, eland, grysbok, the very unique roan antelope (which we […]
My in-laws live about 20 mins. drive from the Crocodile Bridge entry to Kruger National Park. So every time we visit we normally sneak in a visit, and on the day before Christmas (hence the “kind of”) we spent the day in the park. I decided to make this my first black-and-white edit of Kruger Park. […]
Kim’s dad lives close to Kruger National Park and it is always an absolute joy to venture into the park.
My wife’s dad lives very close to Kruger National Park and he has an amazing 100-400mm zoom lens; the ideal combi for great photographic fun.
In 2012 I came to South Africa for the first time. Kim and I did a road trip along these places: Cape Town, Stellenbosch, Hermanus, Plettenberg Bay, Coffee Bay, Sani Pass (Lesotho), Swaziland, Marloth Park, Inhambane (Mozambique), Kruger National Park, Waterval Boven, Johannesburg. It was a great intro to what is now my home country.
