  • My Cape Town Vespa Adventure!

    Someone once said - “One way to get the most out of life is to look upon it as one great adventure.” And I agree wholeheartedly! I’ve been on many ‘adventures’, which include cycling to Everest Base Camp and sleeping in a jungle in Malaysia, but to me real adventure starts wherever you are – it’s a mind-set. And so one Saturday morning I woke up and decided that it was time for an unplanned exploration of Cape Town. We can all be creatures of habit and so I had got into a rut…

And how I, revel, embraced and advocate the fact that we are all “dis-abled” or how I would hope people would see it; is that we are all in fact “differently-abled”.

    Did you know there is an original Salvador Dali artwork residing in Stellenbosch? I did not. It can be found in the glass museum at Glenelly. And there is wine as well.
