If you have been following my blog for a while now, you will know that we were offered the amazing opportunity to visit Denmark this year. We spend an amazing two weeks in Denmark (27 July – 10 August) with great friends of ours, who spoiled us more than we ever have asked for. This was my first overseas trip and what an experience it was! It had outdone every single expectation I’ve had and if the travel bug had not bitten me before this trip, it sure has bitten me now! :) (more…)
I am the operations manager for a very fast growing travel company in Cape Town, South Africa, called TravelGround. We are an online booking service where people can book accommodation anywhere in South Africa.

This specific topic is something that is very close to my heart, especially because good customer service is not a very familiar sight in South Africa.

If you are into hiking and love South Africa as much as I do, than you will enjoy this post!! Not only is South Africa one of the most beautiful countries in the world, but the scenery it presents and the coastlines are some of the best the world has to offer!!
I don’t hike that often, but do love it when I get the chance and if I could, I would love to do all of these trails someday!!

If you are a professional hiker and have done some of these trails, if not all, please do leave your comment, I would love to hear your experience! (more…)
A very good friend of mine from Australia is getting married in Natures Valley, South Africa next year and after reading my post called “Cape Town – No 1 Tourist Destination” where I listed my top 10 “must do’s” when visiting Cape Town, he asked if I can do a post on the “Top 10 must do’s when visiting the Garden Route”, as a guide for his guests and so, here is my “Top 10 must do’s when visiting the Garden Route”.
