A Walk with the Fae Along the Elfin Trail

When I first moved to Cape Town in 2010, the Cecilia Forest became my place of sanctuary where I'd escape to after a busy week of work to regain a sense of well-being amongst the trees. As a single parent walking alone, I didn't veer off the main roads, always sure of a passing walker every few minutes or so. When I spotted the invitation to join the Travel Massive and VoiceMap experience of the E...

The Spirit of a Bench

Some travellers collect magnets, others teaspoons or bumper stickers. I collect benches. I don't actually physically take a bench away with me, but I do snap photos wherever I stumble upon a bench along my way. Why benches? For me benches represent so much.

Early on a Friday morning, the HGTS Tours shuttle arrived at our gate to whisk us away on a roadtrip to join the rest of the Travelling Media team for a wild weekend in Wilderness.

#67Minutes

After going through the various suggestions online about how to spend our 67 minutes serving on Mandela Day, we decided at the last minute to come up with our own idea. It didn't quite go as planned, and we didn't interact with as many people as we had set out to, but we did engage with some interesting personalities behind the guises we pass in our daily lives, whether consciously or not. ...
