Had a bundabash to celebrate my free time. As the pictures show, it’s incredibly easy to move yourself into the mystique of South Africa. This is a country that wants to give, that wants to resonate with you once you move into it. Yes, it’s unyielding, with folds upon folds of ragged mountains squeezed against each other trying to make it as difficult as possible.

Fortunately every imposing fire spewing dragon has a weak spot, all you have to do is keep the sword sharp, train every day, eat a near perfect diet, harvest goji berries at the dawn of the first morning of summer solstice, practice yoga and frequently wrestle bears.


‘This Cape is the most stately thing and the fairest Cape we saw in the whole circumference of the earth’ Sir Francis Drake


‘I am an African. I owe my being to the hills and the valleys, the mountains and the glades, the rivers, the deserts, the trees, the flowers, the seas and the ever-changing seasons that define the face of our native land’ Thabo Mbeki
