First of all, I have to admit - I don't surf. Due to an early "Jaws" trauma and a ridiculous fear of deep sea water, I don't enjoy water sports that much. But my boyfriend is a passionate windsurfer and he spends several weeks of surfing in the Western Cape region every year. After we first met in 2012 I followed his invitation to visit him in Langebaan and Cape Town. Although everyone who heard about the trip in Austria asked me "Isn't South Africa really dangerous?", I wanted to find out about this country myself. So, I packed my analog cameras and entered a plane to Cape Town where I experienced the most surprising trip of my life.

Today, after three trips to South Africa, I can say that I did not only fall in love with my boyfriend who is my husband now but also with this country and its deserted beaches, breathtaking landscapes and lovely locals.

Follow me on an analog (mind) surf trip to Langebaan, Swatriet and Cape Town...
