C-Ludik - Country visited: Cape Verde

Cape Verde

The archipelago of Cape Verde, located in the west of Africa, is full of contrasts, offering landscapes that oscillate between lush vegetation and desolation. The country consists of ten islands, nine of which are inhabited, 450 kilometres from the coast of Senegal. The island of Santo Antão, a paradise for hikers, allows you to discover grandiose and surprisingly green volcanic mountainous landscapes. On the neighbouring island of São Vicente, discover the cultural capital of Cape Verde, Mindelo. It is here that Cesaria Evora exported the morna, the sublime music of São Vicente. These two islands form the duo to visit to discover the nature and culture of Cape Verde! Another duo not to be missed: the black pearl of the archipelago, the island of Fogo and its volcano of the same name and the beautiful stretches of white sand beaches of the island of Maio… Peaceful and quiet, you will be enchanted by these havens of peace!

About

Portrait of C-Ludik Hi ! My name is C-Ludik and I’m the person who runs this creative space. Welcome to ‘Tween here and there, a travel blog that shares awesome destinations, stunning photographs and captivating travel stories from around the world. No two landscapes are ever the same because of a different light, different conditions... whether it's a new or an old place. That’s what I love about nature and landscape photography. As the famous Ibn Battuta traveler said: « traveling – it leaves you speechless then turns you into a storyteller ». He’s right ! Behind the photographer, I see myself more as a storyteller. When I arrive on a place, I try to respond to what I see and tell the story of the land. If you love travel, exploring new places, and seeing more of this beautiful world then you'll be right at home here. ‘Tween here and there is the travel inspiration for those with full-time jobs and for those in search of any off-the-beaten track destinations around the world, near and far.
