Now that I'm back home in Norway after a fabulous two weeks in Africa I'll be posting updates from South Africa, Botswana and Swaziland since I am online again.

As you know I was travelling with +Sunway Safaris Small Group Adventure Travel and you're going to be hearing a lot about this excellent company in coming articles on the blog.

To recap: after a busy two days in Johannesburg I met the rest of the group at the airport to fly into Maun in Botswana. This is the Air Botswana plane that brought us to the heart of the Okavango Delta, Maun ‪#‎botswanasafari2015‬

So, this is happening next week. 

No, I still can't quite believe that I'm finally returning to Africa and in such style with +Imvelo Safari Lodges. 

Zimbabwe is going to be incredible.

And that photo? It's the bar at one of the places I'm staying.

Follow the adventure with the #zimbabwesafari2014  hashtag and read the article for my itinerary :-)

So, Christmas Eve tomorrow. No last minute shopping or stress in the kitchen for us though, and I think we made the right decision leaving Europe for South East Asia. Roll on Xmas in the sun at Sheraton Krabi Beach Resort! +Sheraton Hotels & Resorts  #thailandatchristmas

Welcome to the Grown-up Travel Guide 2015 Beer Diary! Perhaps a little background info is needed before we kick off this new section of the site. In December a group of us decided to set up the 2014 Beer Advent Calendar, whereby we would try a new beer each day up until Christmas. We shared [...]

Say hello to my big friend - one of many elephant encounters in Hwange National Park on game drives from Bomani Tented Lodge. I can truly say this was a life-changing trip and will be telling you all about it over the coming weeks.

When visiting a city I always try to check out the view from on high. Clearly I would prefer to do this while sipping on a cold beer but most of the tallest buildings or structures with viewing platforms serve only one purpose – to offer you the chance to see the place from a totally different perspective. Let's start with London - and The View from the Shard 
Is London's highest observation deck worth visiting? Of course it is...

Is it a UFO? Is it a monster? Or is it just another sunset in paradise? (Clue: it's the latter. Kind of neat, huh? #thailandatchristmas
