My Malawian #HeartofAfrica business adventure 

African theory, Travel

Malawi is rewriting its story with an easily accessible cabinet and  its arms are wide open to business. Its cities are charming and people ready to work. Opportunities abound disguised as challenges. I had the privilege to experience Lilongwe's business side. Malawi represents the possibility that is Africa. I soaked up the possibilities and look forward to working some magic in Malawi as it makes strides to create an economic…

DINNER AT DEHOEK COUNTRY HOTEL CONSERVATORY RESTAURANT

Food & Drink, Lifestyle

http://dehoek.com/ My only regret is that I did not come to DeHoek Country Hotel during the day in order to take in all its beauty. A real country hotel with overstuffed chairs, stone floors, fresh delicate flower arrangements, wooden beams, imposing fireplaces and all-around coziness.

TABLE FOR ONE PLEASE – SOLO DINING PLEASURES

Food & Drink, Lifestyle

I travel on my own quite a lot both for work and for pleasure. In the beginning I must admit it was daunting and it was easy to order room service so I would not have to venture out on my own and to avoid the inevitable "Table for one, why? ... Oh sorry." My first real brave attempt was after a friend dared me to YOLO! I was in…

Lifestyle, Travel

The drive into the countryside was very relaxing and the cold crisp fresh air was just what I needed. I almost missed the sharp turn into the narrow road that leads into African Pride Mount Grace Country House and Spa.

TRAVEL: BEAUTIFUL LUGGAGE

Lifestyle, Travel

I woke up excited at the prospect of spending my public holiday at Mount Grace Country House and Spa and I imagined what I would pack in my overnight bag and which bag would be the right size. As I was caught up in my reverie, I realised that our choice of luggage is a very personal thing and part of our self-expression. If that is true, we ought to…

Sunshine Coast – Bathurst, Eastern Cape

Lifestyle

I am obsessed with the charm of small towns. The allure for me is that each town ha its quirks, no one small town is ever like the other. I love driving in the eastern cape with its meandering roads and precipices that make me feel like I'm in an adventure movie driving at the edge on the road that meanders precariously around mountains and hills. The dips into the…
