The first place I ever fell in love with was Mozambique.  I never really moved on. We kept having a string of affairs on beaches, islands, boats … Today, nearly a decade later, we’ve decided to give the idea of ‘us’ a decent chance and move in together. (I’m very aware of my commitment issues, but […]

Here are some pictures of our adventures with @raffi.arnold and @morgan.okennedy from @bbvilankulo to set the scene. It is quite the scene to set, don't […]

I’m not quite sure what I would single out as my main reason for considering Rocherpan Nature Reserve, about 15 km north of Veldrift on South Africa’s West Coast, as one of my favourite weekend spots in the Cape. A beach that stretches out for miles certainly plays a huge role (and we all know how […]

I’ve mentioned countless times that I’m smitten with South Africa’s Overberg – a region east of Cape Town on the far side of the Hottentots-Holland mountain range. Katarina Mancama and I travelled through Gansbaai last year – a prominent area in the Overberg – celebrating this desitination’s recent GOLD for Best Responsible Tourism Destination at the International Responsible Tourism Awards in London.  I finally got round to […]

I remember exactly how I felt when I got up on the last morning to […]

Down on the beach I listened with half an ear as Clive from Mokkoran Dive Charters gave his safety briefing. Behind him, his large blue duck lay beached on the sand, waiting patiently to take us through the rough waves and into the ocean beyond. Happy we all understood the plan, Clive instructed us to […]

Why do I travel? To try and understand the world, to speak to strangers, listen and learn, find stories to tell, to find myself, to feel alive, to breath and be whole, to appreciate. To escape the busy, relax and replenish, stop – and contemplate the beauty of the world. Which is exactly why De […]

Drinking a cool beer in the Red Herring Bar I ponder my stay at Chole Mjini, while traditional dhows with their lopsided sails gracefully pass by.
