Sundowners & a slice of splendor @ Cape Town

Imagine azure blue skies shifting into shades of pale crimson and calming ginger staring into a canvas of endless ocean – picnic blankets  laden on spiky lawns, families nuzzled together on pillows and a good book to read, couples toasting, the guitar playing and carefree laughs between friends. That’s the sort of scene one will […]

Diving Encouter With The Great White

By Terence on Travel Postcards It was hunt number 3 for the monstrous beast. Hunt number 1 failed due to bad weather. We checked in to the backpackers and they told us the weather wouldn’t permit for the next 3 days. Undaunted, we rescheduled as we had more than a week left. Then the day […]

Coffee Bay

Nothing comes cheap – especially if you’re on a hunt for mind blowing views off the Wild Coast in South Africa. The road into this hidden gem named Coffee Bay costs us a lot of dodging on the dirt road into this coastal haven. Pot holes crattered 80km of the tar road leading into the […]

Durban

The odd sense of familiarity strikes again. Driving into downtown Durban was a traffic chaos where traffic lights are disregarded and pedestrians rule the streets. Heaps of people fill the sidewalks and run-down shops line the roads. We whiz our way through the busy streets dodging the odd pedestrian who seem to be ignoring his […]

Swaziland

A country within a country – that’s what Swaziland is. A tiny country that has its own monarchy governed by King Mswati, its own governing rules and a deep sense of culture and tradition.  We had to go through immigration check points and custom stopovers to enter into Swaziland.
