I love the Transkei. I know I’ve mentioned it before but the magical beauty and dramatic landscapes of the Eastern Cape never cease to amaze me. Words are failing me here, so I will share with you some of these stunning pics taken by my new blogger friend Stu, from the Going Homeless Project.
“For what seems like many eons, I have wanted to live a nomadic lifestyle, you know the one you read about – taking advantage of the modern trappings of life to live a real simple one… It’s about rectifying a giant hole in my list of places to see. I have travelled most, if not all of Southern Africa, but i have never spent any sizable time travelling my country. South Africa. Every time I pick up a travel mag or read about an amazing place, its right here. “
In 2012, Stu stopped making excuses and started the Going Homeless Project. I envy him. Big time. I wish I had the guts to pack up everything and discover more of my amazing country. I must admit, that my 2 years working at backpacker hostels on the coast did give me lots of opportunity to discover a fair bit of Mzansi, I still long for more. I guess weekend escapes and holidays will have to quell my nomadic spirit for now.
