For us, being active is part of our lifestyle. When we are in Cape Town, we are constantly in the water surfing, hiking the beautiful Lion’s Head, running on the Seapoint Promenade or sparring at the Armory. Although traveling can give you an incredible high, it can also take away the routine release of endorphins. The good news is that there are several ways of staying fit when traveling!

    Dating and Religion – Hiking Christ the Redeemer

    Controversial content alert! We’ve been in Brazil for over a month now and have slowly worked our way through our list of activities, ticking off main attractions in Rio de Janeiro. When the day came to visit Christ the Redeemer, we joked about how it will be the first time I was going to take Ollie to see Jesus. Funny at the time (and still is) but there is a far more serious underlying truth to the joke. We’ve been wanting to share about one of our biggest struggles as a couple for some time now – that being our different belief systems. People tell you to avoid putting the…

    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.
