Durban: Crime VS Culture

Often when I go somewhere new the first few things someone will say about the place are the most recent stories of crime and violence. To me, when I choose to go somewhere or I’m sent somewhere for work the first things that enter my mind are ‘what wildlife have they got there’ and ‘what’s…

Golden Linings

Hey friends! So I’m settling in nicely in ma new abode in Brixton. The wall hangings are up, all the classics are un-neatly stacked and my personal tea shop is open for business as usual in the kitchen. I feel completely amongst it all, which was exactly what I wanted when I decided to move…

Colds Are Snot Sexy

Hey friends ! ‘Not all girls are made of sugar, spice and everything nice. Some girls are made of adventure, fine beer, brains and no fear.’ So I was on bumble last night having a little browse in bed before I went to sleep and I matched with this one guy, for identity purposes let’s…

Truth be told it’s bittersweet re-entering civilisation, I’m certainly going to miss being woken up every morning by a jolly Peruvian man handing me a steaming cup of…

Pre-Salkantay

Good evening pals !! It’s the day before the big trek and we’re all super excited to see what the next five days have in store for us. Everyone we’ve spoken to about the trek has wished us luck in a ‘you’ll need it’ kinda way- so we’re expecting it to be quite strenuous, but…

Cosy Cusco

Hola Amigos! A warmmm welcome from Cusco, Peru, a place that’s nestling itself nicely amongst my top five favourite places. A quirky hubbub amongst the rocky terrain that hums with life both day and night. The cool temperatures make it perfect for a cuppa hot coca tea (a brother leaf of the cocaine plant that…

6 Reasons To Be Grateful

Good Evening Friends! So it’s my last day in Rio, it has completely flown by but I’ve had the most wonderful time staying with my gal in her apartment quoting ‘The Parent Trap’, singing a capella and whipping up tasty dinners together. The tan lines are comical, the hair is sun bleached and I’m successfully…
