BLACK BOOTS

July 2, 2019

With winter being here and work slowing down a touch I thought I might go back to a bit of blogging. So many articles have been flung around the inter web these past fews months about the death of the old school blog. With a couple counter pieces saying can Instagram ever replace this space? Either way one would not exist without the other these days, and that’s why when creating content (not my full time job obviously) it’s important for it to be accessible to all kinds of readers. I guess I am old school and still love reading a good blogpost / seeing images bigger than a square on my phone. It’s also something fun to do, I guess we can look at like a hobby. Which is how it began for most!  Learning something from someone else view is what this is about, so I in the name of sharing….

And I am ready.

SNOW

September 10, 2018


Finding snow at the Southern most tip of Africa really is a bit of a mind-f$#*k just because you don’t naturally associate the two. But thats not to say that you won’t ever see ice capped peaks in and around the plains of Africa. There are actually a few places in Morocco, Algeria, Lesotho and of course South Africa where snow visits each year. I’ve seen snow in Europe before, mostly when I was young on family holidays but to think we spotted snow less than 3 hours away from Cape Town?
