Feathers, Eggs and a Tractor at Safari Ostrich Farm in Oudtshoorn (2017-07-04) | When in Oudtshoorn with kids, visit an ostrich farm.

Driving over the Outeniqua Pass outside George (2018-06-28) | Whilst in Mossel Bay with the girls and my folks for a bit of the June school holidays this year, we were rather hoping to catch a ride on the Outeniqua Power Van - a 2.5 hour return trip aboard an old Transnet railcar up into ...

Our December 2017 drive? Definitely the latter. While enjoying a lovely ... (Photo Gallery | Travel Attractions)
Dinosaurs and Whales at the Iziko South African Museum in Cape Town (2017-08-20) | I pretend that any visit to a museum is for the benefit of my girls of course, but obviously that is very much a straight up lie - It is for me. Pretty much always. Case in point, I really really  wanted to see what ... (Historic Attractions | Photo Gallery)
Authentic Indian Curry from Foodmandu in Gordon's Bay (2018-06-08) | Following a day spent up in Johannesburg for a meeting with one of the big banks for a potential project with them, Chantelle and I stole a moment of alone time by heading out for a midweek lunch at the slightly hard to find, but ...

A Week of Golf and Ice Cream at Pinnacle Point in Mossel Bay (2018-06-23) | It's kind of nice, this year the girls and I are getting to see quite a bit of Mossel Bay thanks to mom and dad's place in Pinnacle Point (in particular because they managed to secure an additional week to their share, making the window ...

Vintage Steam Trains at the Outeniqua Transport Museum in George (2017-03-20) | If you are looking for the largest transport museum in South Africa, look no further than the Outeniqua Transport Museum in George, Transnet's homage to the history of transport in South Africa, and indeed, the history of Transnet itself. It is also just so happens ... (Historic Attractions | Photo Gallery)
