by on December 3, 2008 at 11:30 pm

Two days ago we traveled to the Darling Windfarm. Sounds nice and quaint I suppose. It is magnificent. It’s astounding and huge for four fans spinning at a rate of knots to create energy.
Another highlight (yes there were many) of yesterdays Cape Town trip was this Windfarm. It’s called a wind farm I can […]

by on December 3, 2008 at 2:00 am

Keeping with the blogging of the world posts for the next week I sincerely believe that Lanzerac Hotel needed it’s very own blog post.
Situated in the heart of the Cape Winelands this hotel boasts a five star rating and with very good reason. The service staff is always smiling, seem to really love their […]

The story behind Stormhoek

by on December 2, 2008 at 11:30 pm

I absolutely love Stormhoek wine. Why? Because they sponsor blogging events, they are online-conscious and to put it plainly, they just get it.
What is it that they get? Social media. The value of giving to receive.

We have a truly stunning country.
It helps to have an event remind you of that occasionally. That reminder came for me yesterday. I was immensely privileged to take a helicopter ride through, around, in between, over and about Cape Town yesterday.

This march in London I support – the right to vote

by on November 28, 2008 at 5:20 am

Last year I wrote a very heated and controversial post about an anti-crime march that was held in London. I was a bit confused about the action and that people abroad should come home and fight for their country.

This year on December 6th 2008 South Africans living in London will gather to march for […]

I have to admit that I am a massive fan of Brendan Jack’s incredibly dry humour and great approach to everything.
So I would like to introduce my readers to the Brendan JACKast. The guy is hilarious and has some great guests to boot. This episode features [briefly] Politics, expats, comedy, nuclear submarines and a […]
