You think you know Gandhi? My arse you do. So the tenuous lead-in before the funny facts… Great South Africans was a 2004 TV show that looked to count down the country’s most important figures but was cancelled due to … Continue reading
Birthday Bumps!!! So a year ago I was just arriving in South Africa for the 2010 FIFA world cup and figured it would be useful to have an online depository for travel writing, videos, photos and your typical self-effacing and … Continue reading
A fortnight ago already, yoiks… [click here for high-res pics] So I haven’t abandoned the blog. The last 2 weeks have been rather barmy. I posted the Joburg pictures the night before a horrible 20 hours of crowded connecting flights, … Continue reading
“You aint gonna lose your life brother, maybe just your wallet, eh!” – Johannesburg thoughts & photos
Seriously forget the statistics. Tis grand. So back in spring when I was looking at the world cup timetable trying to work out just how I could maximise my time around South Africa, I was really reluctant to apply for … Continue reading
I didn’t get lost or manage to find myself. Success? Yes! – Pictures from the limbo week – “Free State [Clarens, Kimberley & Bloemfontein]“ So I left Durban a fortnight ago now knowing it was 6 days until my next … Continue reading

Greetings from the middle of nowhere! One of the things that almost every travelling fan I’ve spoken too is agreed on is the lack of nationwide transport options here in South Africa. I’ve concluded, despite what anyone says, the only … Continue reading
I ended up with quite a bit of rain in Port Elizabeth. And lets face it, nowhere looks its best in the rain. P.E.’s position at the end of the Garden Route and the edge of the Eastern Cape means … Continue reading
As promised, here’s a pictorial summary of the latter days of my Cape Town adventure. [see high-res]
The taxi system in Port Elizabeth is the absolute business. I got here after a 9 hour drive from Cape Town on Saturday passing through the famous Garden route. Saw some bitching ostriches and quite a lot of pretty landscapes … Continue reading
OK, I’m lying so it’s not at all calm. I’ve nipped in off of Cape Town’s Long Street to an internet cafe for a while as it’s pretty deafening between the continuous drone of vuvuzelas and a wrath of accompanying … Continue reading
