Where are South Africans flying to?

Internationally I’ve flown Joburg – Maputo and Cape Town – Walvis Bay. TravelStart recently released their study on the most popular flight […]

Exploring Joburg with new lenses
February 20, 2018
The voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes – Marcel Proust Johannesburg, my heart, I love this city so much! Its energy, youthfulness and creative spirit speak to my soul. It’s a city of contrasts and colour, a city of heritage, art and a little chaos.  #SeeSA through […]

When the folks at  Mango Airlines  asked me if I’d like to celebrate their 11th birthday by inviting a first-time flyer on a surprise trip, I couldn’t say no! The first time I flew I was as a toddler, and I’ve taken so many flights that it’s lost its novelty. What a cool idea, to […]

September 21, 2017
22 September is World Rhino Day, while September is also Heritage Month. Rhinos are part of our natural heritage and it’s imperative that we conserve them for future generations.  The statistics are scary.

My top things to do in Kenya besides a safari
September 14, 2017
Kenya is perhaps most famously known as a safari destination.  I’ve watched too many National Geographic with David Attenborough narrating the tales of the Great Migration through the Masai Mara. The images of the massive herds moving through the plains are etched in my mind. That being said, Kenya offers so much more than safaris. The […]

I’d rather be in Mauritius
July 13, 2017
, ,
I love  the cultural cosmopolitan hub that is Joburg, but sjoe, it’s cold this time of year. Winter is so over-rated.  So fireplaces are the only consolation, but I don’t have one at my place, so honestly I could just skip winter and head straight to beach weather. Really, I’d much rather be in Mauritius, […]
