Knysna, South Africa. We visited the Siphuncedo pre-school in Knysna, which is located in White Location, or Wit Lokasie. Our guide Peggy Dlephu has a soup kitchen that feeads about 95 children twice a week, and assists Siphuncedo preschool. Importantly, last year’s Cape Storm (2017) caused fires that swept through the town of Knysna and surrounding areas in the days after the storm. The fires killed seven people and displaced around 10.000 with around 600 structures in Knysna and Plettenberg Bay being destroyed. At this moment, Knysna is rising from the ashes and being rebuild. This photo was taken in White Location. It was approved to take photos of the children. #knysna #knysnarising #gardenroute #southafrica #africa #wanderer #travelgram #exploring #traveladdict #amazing #southafricans #beautifuldestinations #travel #wanderlust #canon #instagood #cute #travelphotography #travelling #happy #canonphotography #globetrotter #travelpics #instatravel #travelpics #visitsouthafrica #instamood #instapic #explore #travelblogger

Notre-Dame, Paris, France. Notre-Dame de Paris is a medieval Catholic cathedral on the Île de la Cité. The cathedral (completed by 1260AD) is widely considered to be one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture. The innovative use of the rib vault and flying buttress, the enormous and colorful rose windows, and the naturalism and abundance of its sculptural decoration all set it apart from earlier Romanesque architecture. On this photo you can see a tympanum (semi-circular or triangular decorative wall surface over an entrance) of the Last Judgment. #notredam #paris #europe #church #france #amazing #wanderer #instapic #travelgram #parisjetaime #traveladdict #french #beautifuldestinations #travel #wanderlust #architecturelovers #travelgram #instagood #travelphotography #canonphotography #canon #travelpics #instatravel #globetrotter #architecture #instadaily #instagram #explore #travelblogger #medieval #architecturephotography

Maastricht, Limburg, The Netherlands. On the left: statue of Jean-Pierre Minckelers who was an inventor of illuminating gas. On the right: the Town Hall of Maastricht (Markt). This impressive building was built in the 17th century by Pieter Post and is considered as one of the highlights of Dutch Baroque architecture. This type of architecture is a variety of Baroque architecture that flourished in the Dutch Republic and in its colonies during the Dutch Golden Age (17th century). #maastricht #instatraveling #maastrichtcity #cityhall #travelblogger #traveladdict #europe #architecturelovers #explore #netherlands #holland #nederland #limburg #travelgram #longexposure #instatravel #maastrichtmarkt #instagood #wanderlust #canon #amazing #canonphotography #architecture #travelpics #nightphotography #architecturephotography #beautifuldestinations #travel #travelphotography #instapic

Boulders Beach, Simon's Town, South Africa. The African penguin is only living in the south-western coast of Africa. It is also known as the ‘jackass’ penguin for its loud, donkey-like bray (which is very funny to hear). Sadly, the population of African penguins is declining rapidly due to several threats and is classified as endangered. In 1982, these penguins established a colony near Cape Town, namely Boulders Beach.

Louvre, Paris, France. One of the most fascinating entrance I have ever seen. The Louvre Pyramid (completed 1989) is a large glass and metal pyramid designed by Chinese-American architect I.M. Pei, surrounded by three smaller pyramids, in the main courtyard of the Louvre Palace. The large pyramid serves as the main entrance to the Louvre Museum. It has become a landmark of the city of Paris. The golden statue is a throne floating underneath the Pyramid of the Louvre - A monumental work by the sculptor Kohei Nawa. #louvre #paris #europe #pyramid #france #amazing #wanderer #instapic #travelgram #art #traveladdict #french #beautifuldestinations #travel #wanderlust #architecturelovers #travelgram #instagood #travelphotography #longexposure #travelpics #canonphotography #canon #instatravel #globetrotter #architecture #instadaily #love #explore #travelblogger #modern

Today (September 22) it's World Rhino Day! Over 7.100 known rhinos have been poached in South Africa in the last 10 years. There are only some 18.000 white and 1.900 black rhinos left in South Africa, which is home to 74% of Africa’s remaining rhino population. Stop Rhino Poaching is doing everything to help by channeling public support to selected key reserves and rhino protection projects. It was very impressive to see these white rhinos in real life, just enjoying the grass, and you can not imagine that someone is killing these animals for their keratin (just like your nails) horn.

Sainte-Chapelle, Paris, France. During our ‘city trip’ to Paris, we first visited this amazing chapel. If you love architecture, this is certainly a wow factor, especially the details of the stained glasses. This ‘Holy Chapel’ is a royal chapel in the Gothic style, within the medieval Palais de la Cité, the residence of the Kings of France until the 14th century. Construction begun around 1238 and consecrated in 1248, the Sainte-Chapelle is considered among the highest achievements of the Rayonnant period of Gothic architecture. Although damaged during the French Revolution, and restored in the 19th century, it has one of the most extensive 13th-century stained glass collections anywhere in the world. #saintechapelle #paris #europe #church #france #amazing #wanderer #instapic #travelgram #art #traveladdict #french #beautifuldestinations #travel #wanderlust #architecturelovers #travelgram #instagood #travelphotography #longexposure #canonphotography #canon #travelpics #instatravel #globetrotter #architecture #instadaily #love #explore #travelblogger #medieval

Howick (The Capture Site), South Africa. Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela was a South African anti-apartheid revolutionary, political leader, and philanthropist who served as President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999. In 1962, on 5 August, outside Howick, KwaZulu-Natal, armed apartheid police flagged down a car in which Nelson Mandela was pretending to be the chauffeur. Having succeeded in evading capture by apartheid operatives for 17 months, Mandela had just paid a clandestine visit to ANC President Chief Albert Luthuli’s Groutville home to report back on his African odyssey, and to request support in calling for an armed struggle. It was in this dramatic way, at this unassuming spot, that Nelson Mandela was finally captured and arrested. The sculpture on the photo comprises 50 steel column constructions (between 6.5 and 9.5 m tall) set into the Midlands landscape. At a distance of 35 m, a portrait of Nelson Mandela, looking west, comes into focus. #mandela #nelsonmandela #president #sculpture #southafrica #africa #wanderer #architecturelovers #travelgram #art #minimalism #architecturephotography #southafricans #beautifuldestinations #travel #wanderlust #history #travelgram #instagood #travelphotography #earthpix #canonphotography #canon #travelpics #instatravel #globetrotter #architecture #instadaily #explore #travelblogger

Hluhluwe, South Africa. We were just astonished by this male lion in the Hluhluwe-Imfolozi game reserve. During our trip through South Africa, we had multiple game drives to see the beautiful animals in their natural habitat. However, many people think that if you just enter the vehicle and start with a game drive, that you will see all animals very easily. I must say, no, everything is a bonus, because we are in the nature, not in the zoo. It is amazing to search for these animals, and during our last game drive we encountered this beautiful male lion. We came very close to this lion (as you can see), and just when we were observing him, he started roaring (probably to signal his sick brother the guide said). The sound was very impressive, and at a certain moment the complete car was vibrating from his sound! This was one of the best experiences of the SA trip! #lion #lionking #king #nature #southafrica #africa #wanderer #amazing #travelgram #safari #traveladdict #naturegram #southafricans #beautifuldestinations #travel #wanderlust #natureza #travelgram #naturephotography #travelphotography #wildlife #canonphotography #adventure #travelpics #instatravel #ilovenature #visitsouthafrica #naturelovers #explore #travelblogger

Cape St. Francis, South Africa. Talhado Children’s Haven or Speel Kliniek was started in 1998 by Child Welfare as a children’s clinic at the request of mothers living in Sea Vista. Toys were provided for the children to play with while they waited for the doctor and this lead to the aftercare centre. In 2017, Cathryn Hempel officially established Talhado Montesorri School with two classrooms and certified teachers. Now, Talhado is the feeder school for Sea Vista Primary School, in St Francis Bay and Mzingizi Primary School in Humansdorp. The school serves the community of Sea Vista and Zwelitsha which are mainly Afrikaans or Xhosa speaking. Pre-primary classes are taught in Afrikaans and Xhosa. This photo was taken during our short visit to the school, and he was very happy to show me his wonderful smile! It was approved to take photos of the children. #capestfrancis #school #children #southafrica #africa #wanderer #travelgram #exploring #traveladdict #learning #southafricans #beautifuldestinations #travel #wanderlust #canon #instagood #smile #travelphotography #southafricaza #portrait #canon5dmarkiv #globetrotter #travelpics #instatravel #adventure #visitsouthafrica #wander #laugh #explore #travelblogger

Bayala, South Africa. We were very lucky to be at this site, because this photo was taken just before sunset. I just love the composition of this photo, with the zebras standing in the grass and the rainbow in the back. Zebras are African equids (horse family) united by their distinctive black and white striped coats. Their stripes come in different patterns, unique to each individual. They are social animals that live in small harems to large herds. Interestingly, it was believed that zebras were white animals with black stripes. However, embryological evidence, shows that the animal's background color is black and the white stripes and bellies are additions. #bayala #zebra #nature #southafrica #africa #wanderer #travelgram #exploring #traveladdict #love #southafricans #beautifuldestinations #travel #wanderlust #canon #zebras #naturephotography #travelphotography #travelsouthafrica #wildlife #canonphotography #globetrotter #travelpics #instatravel #ilovenature #natureza #naturelovers #rainbow #explore #travelblogger

Cape Town (Kaapstad), South Africa. Cape Town is located on the shore of Table Bay and is the oldest urban area in South Africa. The area was developed by the Dutch East India Company (VOC) as a supply station for Dutch ships sailing to East Africa, India, and the Far East. Jan van Riebeeck's arrival on 6 April 1652 established Dutch Cape Colony, the first permanent European settlement in South Africa. This photo was taken from Robben Island and is located in Table Bay, in about 6 km west of Bloubergstrand in Cape Town, and stands some 30m above sea level. It gives a wonderful view on Cape Town and the flat Table Mountain. #capetown #robbenisland #nature #southafrica #africa #wanderer #travelgram #exploring #traveladdict #love #southafricans #beautifuldestinations #travel #wanderlust #canon #instagood #landscapephotography #travelphotography #travelsouthafrica #amazing #canon5dmarkiv #globetrotter #travelpics #instatravel #landscape #visitsouthafrica #kaapstad #instadaily #explore #travelblogger

St. Lucia, South Africa. The small town St. Lucia is mainly a hub for the iSimangaliso Wetland Park (previously known as the Greater St. Lucia Wetland Park). The word isimangaliso means ‘a miracle’ or ‘something wondrous’ in Zulu. The park is also home to 1,200 Nile crocodiles and 800 hippopotami. Common hippos are recognisable by their barrel-shaped torsos, wide-opening mouths revealing large canine tusks, nearly hairless bodies, columnar legs and large size. Adults average 1,500 kg and 1,300 kg for males and females respectively. Despite its stocky shape and short legs, it is capable of running 30 km/h over short distances. This photo shows the characteristic ‘yawn’ of a hippo. #stlucia #naturelovers #nature #southafrica #africa #wanderer #travelgram #exploring #traveladdict #love #southafricans #beautifuldestinations #travel #wanderlust #canon #instagood #naturephotography #travelphotography #travelsouthafrica #hippo #canon5dmarkiv #globetrotter #travelpics #instatravel #wildlife #natureza #instamood #ilovenature #explore #travelblogger

Knysna, South Africa. We visited the Siphuncedo pre-school in Knysna, which is located in White Location, or Wit Lokasie. Our guide Peggy Dlephu has a soup kitchen that feeds about 95 children twice a week, and assists Siphuncedo preschool. Peggy is a woman on a mission and a force to be reckoned with. Importantly, last year’s Cape Storm (2017) caused fires that swept through the town of Knysna and surrounding areas in the days after the storm. The fires killed seven people and displaced around 10.000 with around 600 structures in Knysna and Plettenberg Bay being destroyed. At this moment, Knysna is rising from the ashes and being rebuild. This photo was taken at the pre-school. It was approved to take photos of the children. #knysna #knysnarising #gardenroute #southafrica #africa #wanderer #travelgram #exploring #traveladdict #amazing #southafricans #beautifuldestinations #travel #wanderlust #canon #instagood #cute #travelphotography #travelsouthafrica #authenticafrica #canon5dmarkiv #globetrotter #travelpics #instatravel #instagram_sa #visitsouthafrica #instamood #eyes #explore #travelblogger

The Koutoubia Mosque is the largest mosque in Marrakesh, Morocco. It is located in the southwest medina quarter of Marrakesh. The mosque is ornamented with curved windows, a band of ceramic inlay, pointed merlons, and decorative arches. The minaret, 77 m in height, includes a spire and orbs. It was completed under the reign of the Berber Almohad Caliph Yaqub al-Mansur (1184-1199), and has inspired other buildings such as the Giralda of Seville and the Hassan Tower of Rabat. #marrakech #koutoubia #mosque #africa #wanderer #morocco #unesco #travelgram #moroccotravel #worldplaces #minaret #traveladdict #mosaic #moroc #architecturelovers #love #beautifuldestinations #travel #wanderlust #canon #instagood #amazing #architecturephotography #travelphotography #canon5dmarkiv #architecture #globetrotter #travelpics #lovemorocco #instatravel
