So you want to visit Cape Town, South Africa, heh?

Look, yes I know those tickets are real cheap when browsing google flights, but let me just stop you right there.

You know nothing, absolutely nothing… Until you travel

I once met a man when I was 14. He was drunk on homemade spirits at a clandestine rooftop get together in a country where alcohol is and was illegal. Everyone else was chatting away and he was sitting close to the edge by himself enjoying the night enshrouded city view before us. He was quiet for the longest time and I stood nearby half in fear … Continue reading You know nothing, absolutely nothing… Until you travel

I know it may sound crazy, … Continue reading Dream Camera for Travel and Wildlife

Photography is having no regrets

My obsession with photography started when I got my first camera back when I was 10.  It was film and in those days crazy expensive so I savored each shot I took and very fast became addicted to that unique click that only a film camera can give off.

Self Defence and the Cool Habit Gang

There are some things we take for granted, personal safety and protection is definitely one of them.  Doesn’t matter if you are male or female we both do it.  Admit it. But really, as travelers, we need to think beyond our own comfort zone and our own area and be mindful of dangers that we may not face at home. I first published this a … Continue reading Self Defence and the Cool Habit Gang

USA: Lost in Translation… or rather mispronunciation

Have you ever spoken to a South African? Or perhaps someone from a different country and the way they pronounce the words is slightly different to the way you do? It can lead to some interesting misunderstandings… Disclaimer: Unfortunately some of the “misunderstandings” are not totally PG.
