South Africans Travel Too – Zambia

This is the third instalment of ‘South Africans Travel Too’, since its inception at the Jaguar F-Pace media launch in the Eastern Cape. Honestly, I am starting to see this entity shaping up into something bigger than all three of us could have ever imagined. Even the people who are part of this travel group […]

City of Dreams: New York

I waited for an hour for customs to clear my luggage and I think it was because I had Sharpeville beers and some snacks for Gugu from South Africa in my luggage. I see an ATM at the airport and I withdraw $100 because I need to take the train to Harlem. Now I have […]

Broaden Your Horizons in Paris

I’m proudly South African. Despite the trials and tribulations we regularly encounter our potential outweighs the darkness of our past. We can’t deny the effects our history has had on us wether we acknowledge it or not. We still carry the burdens of yesterday upon our shoulders. The weight can sometimes feel suffocating and cloud […]

This is Exactly why Travel is the Best Life Investment

I dare you. Type in the words “lazy, entitled and bad with money” in Google, and the most common term that will pop up from the search results is Millennials.  However considering Mark Zuckerberg’s most recent commencement speech at Harvard, better adjectives for our generation exist, that should probably make the news more often.

Most Friday mornings, the house is filled with alarms, water running, crying and grumbling, and a stern voice shouting for children to bath, brush their teeth, have their breakfasts and get ready to leave for school. This Friday morning, however, there was a very different energy, one that you could almost reach out a pat […]

Baecations and thangs

So, most relationships go through a period where plans to travel are put on the table. This could be one heck of a testing period for the couple. I mean, you love each other, but have never really spent every waking moment with each other, outside of your comfort zone, which could possibly be a […]

My India …

had visions of returning from India feeling enlightened and looking emaciated – the enlightenment would be from the morning, noon and night yoga sessions that I would partake in, and the drop in dress size would inevitably be caused by the worst bout of Delhi belly ever recorded. The pressure was on. Not only did […]

How Stella Got Her Groove Back …

An island retreat. So… The initial plan, travel plan, was to do Madagascar. Actually, there was no plan. Woke up one day and decided that this would be the year that I would start all the travelling I’d been drooling about my entire life. It was on some Thursday afternoon that I sent my sister […]
