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. Reading the Metro on the tube definitely became one of my highlights. We had become so accustomed to that routine we felt like we…

Having a Sweet Tooth in London

Having a Sweet Tooth in London

Sometimes getting lost is the best way of finding something, whether in the real world or within yourself. I think getting lost in London is one of the most wonderful things to do. You never know what is around the next corner and it is always a pleasant surprise. You always find the neatest little stores….

A Summer’s Guide to London

A Summer’s Guide to London

The mercury is pushing the high twenties this week in London. Coming from South Africa we are used to the heat, but the sticky heat in the city is something entirely different. So we endeavoured to escape the summer to a nearby park. We spent the past two mornings splayed on the grass at Morden…

A Survival Guide to Wimbledon

A Survival Guide to Wimbledon

I can now officially say I got sun-burnt in London.  It sounds like a bad joke, but my arms and chest are lobster red after a day spent in a warm England sun. It was supposed to be 23°C today – a great way to start Wimbledon. Ruan and I donned shorts, sunglasses and sandals. I rose early…

An Afternoon along the River Thames

An Afternoon along the River Thames

I can get fat on gourmet food in London.  The city seems to be bursting with markets, street vendors and restaurants wherever we turn. Delicious smells are always wafting through the air, seducing us. Freshly baked bread, crispy bacon, newly roasted coffee… this cacophony of scents attack your senses and you become drunk on the…

Seeing the Sights on the Isle of Skye

Seeing the Sights on the Isle of Skye

The Isle of Skye is like a film set. It is quite fitting that Dave insists on playing movie soundtracks for much of our journey throughout the island. We climbed onto the island from the mainland using the Skye Bridge. We arrive early afternoon, so we spent the rest of the day exploring the Isle….

Exploring the Scottish Highlands

Exploring the Scottish Highlands

The curtains of our hostel were left open, so we fell asleep and woke up to the most amazing view. The following morning was a quick breakfast before we headed off to our bright yellow tour bus: Haggis Tours. It was aptly labelled “Wild and Sexy” and “Awesome”. This bus was to be our ride for…

En Route to Edinburgh

En Route to Edinburgh

For the summer solstice, we will be in Scotland. The drive up is 10 hours but feels like the longest drive of my life. But the Megabus from London to Edinburgh offered a smooth ride. The route is beautiful. The bright green landscape is dappled with sunlight. The cropped grass has trees sprawled along its back. The…
