Road Tripping with Travel Massive!

Last month, I was out on the road exploring more of South Africa. This time on the Travel Massive Road Trip powered by Ford South Africa with 9 influencers who also love travel in South Africa as much as I do. It was actually a bit daunting for me because as some of you know,…

Soweto Storytelling Night

Stories hold within them the ability to transform situations, recall lessons and share knowledge. It is through the power of storytelling that we are able to find light in life’s experiences. The last Thursday of the month is storytelling night at Lebo’s backpackers in Soweto. The entertainment area opens up for an evening of storytelling…

My First Big Five Safari

Last year, I took a trip to the Pilanesberg National Park. The Pilanesberg is in the North West Province not too far from Sun City. While there, we stayed at the Manyane Resort took in some great sights on our Safari trips.

Free State loving

A weekend trip to the Free State is the gift that keeps on giving. Whether it’s a day trip to enjoy the antique stores in Parys or camping along the Vaal, it’s always a fun, easy trip outside Jozi. This time we really put foot and headed down to Clarens for a weekend. A picturesque small…

Sunday Lunch in Cullinan

Tumbling tumble weeds. That is what I suspected we would find when we decided to take advantage of the good weather one Sunday and drive through to Cullinan for lunch. With only a limited amount of time (the drive there) to do research, I quickly discovered that we were essentially looking for one road: Oak Avenue.

Farm Markets in the City

Markets are growing in popularity in Jozi as a place to relax during the day, meet new people or just recuperate from the night before. The good news is that…

The time I went Kloofing for the first time…by MISTAKE

On a recent weekend getaway, we headed to Mountain Sanctuary, a small nature reserve in the Magaliesberg with stunning crystal clear rock pools. It’s a great place for camping, swimming, and family fun. I know this because while sitting quietly at one of the pools a whole troop of families, with I don’t know how many…

Traditional Weddings, Rural beauty and That One Aunt

It’s the early hours of the morning. We are deep in the Eastern Cape Province discovering how cold it can actually get there at night. Although we’re wrapped up tight, the cold surreptitiously coaxed its way through our tightly woven blankets and mercilessly punches us. Curled up in a ball, the rustling sound of a…

Hiking in the city

I don’t often think about hiking when I’m home. Although I enjoy hiking, it’s something that usually comes to mind when I’m away on holiday. And to be honest, it’s been a while since I’ve hiked and due to my fitness levels it feel more like a chore than a leisure activity these days. Nonetheless,…
