The world is my oyster

38 Articles in this blog

For a larger than life attitude to life, here I blog about all things daring, adventurous and unique. I am naturally drawn to experiencing life to the fullest everywhere I go, absorbing as much as I can from other cultures and blending into local traditions and customs.

From donning a carnival costume and joining tropical carnival marches to motorbiking off the beaten path in Vietnam or searching for pirate treasures in the Caribbean, I take every opportunity to soak up as much as I can from any destination I visit.

So, if you're interested in learning about my adventures and rare finds, follow my blog and draw some inspiration from my exciting experiences during my many travels around the globe. You'll find that wherever I go, there's no time for boredom in my itinerary.

South African street art - a political tour

Join me in my unique journey along one of South Africa's artiest suburbs as I took in beautiful street art and learnt the political messages behind many of them. The flourishing neighbourhood of Woodstock is fast becoming a gentrified hub where edgy cafes and hip foodie markets spring up at an alarming pace, but this once was a grimy area ripe with gang activity. Art forever changed its landscape and the lives of its inhabitants, read on to learn how.

Vine, wine, sun and views - touring the Cape Town Winelands

We've all done it – knocked back a glass of Sauvignon blanc without a clue about we've just drunk. We might know it's cool crisp and deliciously moreish and, yup, we'd love another glass, please but could we really talk about it like a wine expert? I certainly couldn't.

Penguin party and the Cape of Good Hope

The last time I eyeballed a penguin it was underwater – swimming with the knee-high Humboldt bird while they torpedoed around me – in the Galapagos many years ago. This time I was on land, thousands of miles in another direction, staring up at its cousin, the petite African penguin on its favourite beach in South Africa.

A high-flying view of Table Mountain

Freewheeling down a mountain at speed was my kind of fun. We humans have always wanted to fly and scootering down Table Mountain with the wind in my hair felt like flying to me. It was sky-high exhilaration under the warming rays of the African sun.
