    Cape Point: A Place of Great Hopes

    A place which makes you dream. Cape Point is the meeting point between the Indian Ocean and the Atlantic Ocean. I have been there three times already and each time it's been completely different.

    Wapping Woods

    Wapping was originally a Saxon settlement. This area was known as a marshland until the 16th century when it was drained. It then became a rich meadow and garden ground until it was acquired for the London Docks. By 1969, the docks at Wapping were empty. Trees were planted and it was optimistically called Wapping Woods. However, the trees could not survive and the result is the small park we have today.

    Tuileries Garden

Created by Catherine de Medicis as the garden of the Tuileries Palace in 1564, it was first opened to the public in 1667, and became a public park after the French Revolution.

    Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, Cape Town

    Kirstenbosch - the biggest open-air botanical garden of all. I fell in love with this garden when I first came here back in 2004. So, when I arrived to Cape Town this year, I immediately wanted to go back. Although a few obstacles (in the shape of a vineyard visit and so on) almost prevented me from doing that, there I was, still back at Kirstenbosch!

    Shooting Sport Center Bockenberg

    We all like to shoot like crazy, with our cameras around our neck and in our bags: shoot, shoot, shoot and don't think! But did you ever try to shoot with a gun, and not with a camera?? I always asked myself why we're using the same verb "to shoot" for photography and when using guns or weapons.... Well, once I changed the weapon and practiced some "shooting sport" with a rifle, but didn't forget my camera to show you how it was! :)
