Sitting at Truth Coffee for my Weekly Therapy

Sitting at Truth Coffee for my Weekly Therapy

Baristas are sort of like the modern day bartenders – that is – therapists to the common man. In films you always see that one guy sitting in the corner, sipping his whisky and confiding in the disgruntled barman. He wails about his marital problems or work issues while the bartender nods absent-mindedly while wiping…

Our Final Hours in London

Our Final Hours in London

It is with heavy hearts that we turn our tails to London. As the plane passes over the patchwork landscape of green parks and suburbs, I ponder about what I will miss most.

Taking it to the streets of London

Taking it to the streets of London

The Old Street is a hub of creativity and hipsters. Strolling along Shoreditch is like visiting Woodstock on any ordinary day in Cape Town. Street art and graffiti wash the walls, gourmet restaurants line the roads, and it is also a new area – recently converted from old factories to an up and coming hipster joint….

Out and About in London Town

Out and About in London Town

The day started like a typical Sunday – lui en rustig. We shared a lazy morning and afternoon with family, and an adventurous afternoon with friends exploring London Town. I rolled out of bed early with the sun to find Chris already entertaining Chewie – the Cavapoo puppy – downstairs. Once the rest of the house…
