Swakopmund, Namibia

in Adventure

After just over one week of holiday in Cape Town, Danielle and I were off to our neighboring country of Namibia. Known for the famous Namib Desert - interesting to note that because of this desert it is one of the least densely populated countries in the world.

This was my second visit to the beautiful coastal town of Swakopmund. Once a German colony, most of the population here is still German speaking and I must add incredibly warm and hospitable. 

What makes this town so unique is its combination of desert and ocean. While taking a walk on the beach you can look over to the sand dunes – quite a breathtaking sight.

So except for the scenery, the friendly people and the quaint German architecture, the thing that I love the most about this town is the food!

German food is one of my favourites – I could live on Rohak, Brötchen, Schnitzel, Bratwurst, Marzipan, Sauerkraut, Eisbein, Kassler Chops, Bockwurst & Rohfleisch to name but a few. In the posts to come I will elaborate a bit more on some of these dishes.

I would highly recommend this as a holiday destination, somewhere where you can be at home, while away from home. It’s so relaxing and I promise you will leave there with a part of your heart forever left behind.
