Tucked away neatly in a garden setting - the perfect Sunday chillout spot

An Olive Bistro tucked into a street

Arguably one of the finest things in life is happening upon something amazing and unexpected all at once… So much so that it encourages a blog post. When I was invited out to Olive Bistro, in Durbanville, for a Sunday pizza and a beer, I was expecting, well, I don’t know what I was expecting […]

A platter for the munchies and some wine with a friendly pour, champion...

A Sunday chill at Durbanville Hills

(A quick full disclosure – I wrote this post at the end of July going into some sunny patches in August, when sunshine was somewhat rare, but considering we are at the end of September and still experiencing the tail end of winter with rain spatters, cold winds and clouds, it still seems somewhat apt… […]

Hitting the early morning streets is such a treat - a must-do if you ask me... Pic Cred: www.getoutside.co.za

Urban Trail Sundays in the mother city…

It’s always a treat to get out nice and early in your hometown, surrounded by lumo-clad, like-minded individuals looking for a great way to get some fitness in without getting too extreme on the ‘day of rest’ and that is what Get Outside‘s Urban Trail Sundays are all about – a run through the inner-city and suburban surrounds […]

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 […]

Viva Portugal – This Ocean Basket gets it right!

We don’t usually cover things we deem commercial (in the retail sense, that is) but after Chris and I had some fun at an Ocean Basket that does things a little differently, we thought we’d give it a bash… Tucked neatly into a corner at the Edgemead Village Centre lies Ocean Basket Edgemead and once every two […]

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 […]

Road Tripping the N2 – Impromptu Travel

Impromptu travel is the action of travelling without a plan. There is irony in this is because you almost need to have a general idea of what there is to do, otherwise you’ll be travelling blindly and will end up missing hidden gems that could be just around the corner. Let me tell you what […]

Arderne Gardens and Italian on the fly

Arderne Gardens. You may not know the name. I certainly didn’t, even though I have probably driven past them a few hundred times and was an Ikey for what seems like a hundred years. Do yourself a favour though, get to know them, you won’t regret it. A wedding picture favourite, the garden, just off Claremont Main […]

Killarney Track Day: GM/Reeds, Take a Bow!

I thought, for some inexplicable reason, that I was over the giddy, childlike excitement that came with driving cars with a certain performance calibre. I don’t know what could possibly have brought this misconception about. Fortunately, an amazing bout at a Killarney Track Day with the guys from GM and Reeds reignited that goose-bumpy passion I thought […]

New Isuzu KB Handles on the Track

Following the write-up we did early last month covering the launch of the 2013 Isuzu KB range I received an invite from the guys at Reeds directly to my inbox to come and try out the KB at the Isuzu Open Day held on the 10th of May. The invite dared me to “…come and […]
