Stellenbosch an Art Lovers Haven

Stellenbosch just 45 minutes outside of Cape Town, South Africa, has become a retreat for art lovers. Its not only home to South Africa’s oldest music school “Stellenbosch Conservatoire.” It also features an impressive collection of galleries and studios. When I wondering the 300-year-old streets of Stellenbosch this week, I came upon these stunning and fun outdoor sculptures – there is such a wealth of diversity and imagination that bring these historic oak-lined streets to life!

So next time you are in Stellenbosch discover Stellenbosch outdoors art – a wealth of diversity and imagination that colour the historic oak-lined streets.

Scala dei Turchi, Sicily

Today I traveled to see one of the most stunning natural sights in Sicily “Scala dei Turchi” and it was definitely worth the visit!

The Name
The Turkish Steps, or sometimes called the “Stair of the Turks” is translated from the Italian name la Scala dei Turchi and is one of the most stunning natural sights in Sicily and apparently one of the most photographed.

The Origin or Legend
The Turkish Steps are located along the eastern coastline of Sicily in the Agrigento province. These cliffs were named in the 1500s when pirate raids were common along the coastline, and according to legend, it was once a shelter for Turkish ships plundering along the Sicilian coastline.

How Did These Cliffs Form?
This unique sedimentary rock or marl consisting of clay and lime gives the formation it’s amazing dazzling white color and features. Over millions of years, the waves and wind have eroded the cliffs giving them the distinctive soft, sloping curves, which are among the most beautiful in the Mediterranean.

Scala dei Turchi officially became an official UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2007.
