    A GUIDE TO SURFING IN SAGRES

    The rumours you’ve heard about surfing in Sagres are true – it’s epic! Our lust for the ocean was strong after a week of not surfing and anticipation for what the famed Sagres had to offer was high. It did not let us down! We left Lisbon and ventured down to Sagres in the Algarve for a week, exploring and surfing the local spots. When we arrived we went straight to the first surf shop that we found (of which there were many). The owner of Sagres Bicycle and Company was very helpful and selected the perfect board for each of us. The two boards cost us an affordable €120…

    MAURITIUS OUTSIDE THE RESORT

    We’ve all seen pictures of holiday-goers and honeymooners wallowing in cascading pools of water, sipping cocktails and gently observing the view of clear blue ocean. These snapshots of the resorts in Mauritius set the bar of beauty incredibly high. We recently visited Mauritius for a week and stayed with Ollie’s folks up on the side of Tourelle du Tamarin. Living outside of the resort, we got to experience the true flavours of Mauritius and all her glory.

    10 YEARS OF ROCKING THE DAISIES | HEADLINE ACTS AND TICKET PRICES

    Rocking the Daisies survived 2018! While we have had many great memories at Rocking the Daisies over the years, this year we were in Lisbon and didn’t attend (that’s not the only reason). But this didn’t stop us from reflecting on the mayhem that was happening in Cape Town as people were refused the opportunity to bring alcohol into the festival, and were charged for camping. It got us thinking on the past 10 years of Rocking the Daisies – regarding what headline acts were, and what the ticket prices were during phase 1.
