Travel & Things retains the silver!
To see all the winners, visit:
and big “THANK YOU”…
Many trips, local and international.
A radio show and more than 1000 postings and over 150000 readers worldwide.
And I do it all by myself!
NOW FOR THAT ELUSIVE GOLD…
My most memorable…
After 47 years of bush visits, I finally get to see a kill.
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.
I do believe that I have the only Blog that has a dedicated radio show on a “proper” terrestrial station.
The broadcasts are podcast on my Blog.
The show is sponsored by Heia Safari Ranch in Muldersdrift.
1485am broadcasts live from its Johannesburg studio
and nationally on DStv audio channel 169.
Radio Today (@Radio2Day) also streams via its website: www.1485.org.za
AND on cell phones: 1485.mobi
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 unwavering 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.
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…
In almost 15 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.
This Blog would not exist without you!
