Hello friends! South Africa turned out to be another one of those countries you just have to fall in love with, and I certainly did! Cape Town in particular stole my heart big time, it’s another place I have to return to at some point. That sweet city is residing well up there on the upper part of my current list of favorite places.
I was staying at the Long Street Backpackers in the center of town (obviously in Long St.), they have cheap dorms at just 65 SAR a day, and easy going staff and fellow travelers. They’ve also got a quaint little bar were you can get perfectly shit-faced for almost no money at all, a pool-room and a TV den. It was nice and clean even! So basically, that’s the place to be.
I am now back home in Oslo again, freezing but generally happy. We have a beautiful winter up here these days, and it’s actually nice to see some snow again. I got a very nice new job too, started last week as a software technician at a successful media company, so the traveling is over for a while… at least until next summer. 🙂
Drop me a line if you’re planning on visiting Norway (we have a free guest room in our house) or would like tips on places to see along the route I travelled the last two years. I’ll publish the travelogue and some pictures sometime soon.
