Suspended Coffee coming to South Africa

Winter has arrived in South Africa. We have just started to accept the fact that the days are getting shorter and getting up in the dark, cold mornings is something we just have to suck up and do. But luckily for many of us we have a warm house to wake-up in and a fresh…

A trip to Pretoria

Today I ventured into Pretoria. I have been there a few times, but never really done the touristy things. So today we spontaneously decided to go do the ‘history run’ while we were there. So off we went to The Union Buildings and The Voortreker Monument. I actually can’t believe that I’ve never been before.…

Little Asia in Joburg

Asian persuasion seems to be taking over Joburg, actually the whole of South Africa. Every little shopping centre or sidewalk shopping strip has a Chinese clothing shop in it. There are more China Towns spread across Joburg than I can count, with new ones seeming to pop up almost monthly. We love them, they are…

Jeremy Loops in Jozi

Today I would like to share my favourite South African musician with you guys. His name is Jeremy Loops (his website is under construction, but hopefully ups soon) and he is so incredibly awesome.

Wasted time

A birds eye view

This year I have decided to take all the opportunities I can. To stop making excuses and to just….do it. So when offered to go for a ride in a four seater plane I thought why not? Let’s do it. I’ve never been in a small plane before and didn’t really think much of it…

The power of a blog post

The peeps at Live Magazine SA came across one of my photographs of Neighbourgoods market and asked permission to publish it in their magazine. Voila! Published photographer 😉 Check out…

Discovering Troyeville

A few months ago a put up a blog post with a series of photographs from Troyeville. It has taken me a while but here is finally the blog post explaining a bit more about Troyeville. Troyeville is one of Johannesburg’s historically rich suburbs that has a sense of grandeur as well as despair about…

The Joburg club scene

I haven’t been to a club in Joburg for a few months. I got tired of the whole clubbing scene, it may be because I’m getting older or just because I have changed. In my fresh ‘of age’ years I loved the clubbing scene – my friends and I were frequent visitors to all the…
