The envelope please.SA Blog Awards 2019 winners have been announced.



Finally, after 6 years as a runner up, Travel & Things get to stand on the top of the podium!


JHNet: With thanks to Beni Angel and his awesome team, who ported my Blog to WordPress in a short period of time, without losing a single published posting. No easy feat when Travel &Things had been going for a decade before I made the switch to this new platform. If you are looking to upgrade your website or digital platform, then THIS is the company that you need to be talking to.

Veldskoen Shoes: This brand has been with me on the beaches of India, up mountains and on many safari destinations. The orange is my favourite colour, but they have several options, to suit both men, women and children.


Samsonite South Africa: This particular suitcase has been with me for the longest time, but aside from some minor scuffs, it looks like it has just come out of a luggage store. This is luggage for life!


GammaTEK: This power bank has literally saved my life on occasions. It travels with me constantly.


FotoFirst: When I need images printed for exhibition purposes, my go-to shop is their branch at Cresta Shopping Centre in Johannesburg.


Pentax: I have been brand loyal for more than 40 years. My first SLR camera was a Pentax and I see no reason to change.



Olight: For making the night so bright that I cannot lose my way. It also is useful at home when there is load-shedding or extended power outages.

Rugged WearMy clothing brand of choice, not only when I am in the bush, but in an urban setting as well. Look cool, calm and confident in their range of clothing and accessories.



Coolideas: For high-speed Fibre connectivity while at home. I often wish I could take the router with me on some of my bush trips…
