Funemployment and the ride of your life

I’ve officially been on the road, so to speak, for a good 5 weeks now – strike that, a great 5 weeks now – so perhaps it’s time I knuckled down and delved into what it is I have done, not where I have travelled and all that (I have endeavoured to start getting those […]

A Mid-May Meander in Mozzieambique

What started out as a real pie-in-the-sky conversation of following a friend’s band to Mozambique (or Mozzieambique as I have come to call it) for a gig turned into one of the best holidays you could imagine despite the fact that our plans to go to a music festival withered away when we found out […]

Strandveld Vineyards: Sipping nectar at Africa’s southernmost wine farm

When most people visit the southern tip of Africa, in the Struisbaai and L’Agulhas region, they have the vision of getting their pic snapped on the little monument that marks the point where the two oceans meet. Not us. Having done that as a kid and subsequently over many visits, we opted to go have […]

How to make Your 9-5 Life an Adventure!

  You know how sometimes you get so stuck into something and before you realise it, it’s the end of the day? That’s how my life has been for the last 5 months! Between working, paddling and spending time with my girlfriend/family I’ve had almost zero time to just sit back and take stock of […]

As Capetonians we are spoilt for choice when it comes to hiking and sprawling views. However, people seem to get hung up on taking the same old selfies on Lion’s Head when, in reality, there is just so much more out there – and Echo Valley is calling your name… Ambling along Boyes Drive in […]

Seeing stripes at Mountain Zebra National Park

If you’re anything like me I’m sure there are plenty of things you have every good intention of doing but for some reason just never get around to actually doing. This post is one of those things. In June last year (yes, 11 months ago!) I visited the Mountain Zebra National Park and the only […]

GwangJu Youth Centre: Where kids get a chance to soar – without ever leaving the ground

A good friend of mine moved over to South Korea a few years ago, Seoul specifically, to teach. This is a familiar story – the graduate teaching English in Asia. Many of us have those friends but do you ever get a chance to hear and see some of what they do, exactly? Teaching out […]

Oudekraal braaiing, like when we were kids

Don’t ask me why, because I wouldn’t be able to tell you, but for some reason I have lived in Cape Town my whole life and never been to Oudekraal. I wish I had, because I’m sure it would have brought back even more of a flood of nostalgia if I had actually been there […]

Cheeki Rafiki, Let’s Help Save These Guys Lives!

This won’t be a long drawn out article but rather a few facts and some thoughts to ponder as well as info on how you can help! I’m very passionate about sea rescue after 9 years of being a lifeguard and themes such as selflessness or never giving up are common. I’m really struggling to […]

Imagina na Copa – A Story of Riot in the Face of World Cup Celebration

It’s been four years since South Africa hosted the FIFA World Cup. I’m sure this hit as a stark reality for many of us at the rolling over of the new year. We were, undeniably, left with some great memories. I, for one, can think back fondly to jumping on tables in fan tents, hugging […]
