Cape to Namibia… and beyond the border…

Near to where my parents stay there is a bridge across the N7 and on that bridge is a tourist sign that says in bold white letters: Cape to Namibia route (North)… For years I would drive past that sign dreaming of just turning off the road and heading all the way up to and […]

Elephants are part and parcel of the tourist experience in Thailand but try to be mindful of the practices used in their training.

Trekking in Mae Taeng – A new year to remember

For that reason, when I saw an online deal to stay at Vensterklip, about 4kms out of Eland’s Bay, I jumped at the […]
