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.

Dream Camera for Travel and Wildlife

I’ll admit.  I’m a total tech junkie, I love new gadgets and anything that makes life simpler yet more fun, especially camera equipment.
