Having written 700 posts I decided to share some of my favourites with you, my readers
This was the very first posting from September, 2010
My most memorable…
After 47 years of bush visits, I finally get to see a kill.
Dedicated to my Dad
One of my island visits…
This posting was from my trip to Mauritius.
Heia Safari Ranch…
If they were a country, Zebra would be the “national” animal.
They also sponsor my radio show.
Listen to the podcast from the first broadcast.
The founder of Heia has been gone for five years.
This is my tribute to him.
Federal Air is the way to fly…
and they have the best snacks in their departure lounge!
One of the best…
no, THE best Spa my wife and I have visited.
Aside from travel, I have been covering monthly acoustic music evenings for the last year
And in the process I have “discovered” a plethora of fine unknown talent
Bird photography takes patience and good camera equipment.
I have the latter but not much of the former…
Since my first trip to a game reserve(Kruger National Park) in 1966,
I have had an unwaivering passion for all things wild.
My travel writing has allowed me the opportunity to visit some of the best lodges
and reserves that SA has to offer.
For a year I worked on cage fighting events.
It was a lot of fun…
especially the audience…
beer bellies, moustaches, tattoos and tight t-shirts…
and that was just the women!
From my bucket list…
Travels with my heart.
My attempt at cooking in Vietnam.
African sunrises and sunsets.
From my best game reserve, Madikwe.
Our first island holiday…
My daughter Jayne is a theatre warrior…this is one of her productions.
In almost 12 years as a travel writer, I have only had two “bad” experiences.
One was a property in Magaliesberg that did not know what it wanted to be…so no story.
And then this incident at the Catembe Gallery Hotel.
A shocking experience, but it did make for a good story.
And my wife can now laugh about it.
I have been very lucky to have the likes of Uber travel journalist
Carroline Hurry writing a guest Blog for me.
The last three years have been an interesting journey for both the blog and me.
From the beginnings when the blog was just a place for my newspaper articles
to where it finds itself now…
an award winning “publication” with lots of images…
Stick around…the only way from here is UP…
Also a big THANK YOU to my regular sponsors,
without whom none of this might have happened.
This Blog would not exist without you!
