Hiking up Devil’s Peak

Hiking up Devil’s Peak

I’m standing on top of Devil’s Peak, marvelling at the world. You can see every corner of Cape Town from this height, from the City Bowl to the Southern Suburbs, the forested Tokai region and even all the way to Gordon’s Bay. I breathe it all in. Silence. It was a golden morning. I could…

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.

It is famous for its many bridges spanning across the rivers, most notably, the Kapellbrücke, which dates back to 1333. I woke early the next day. It must…

Summer in Switzerland

Summer in Switzerland

I’m to Switzerland for a week this summer, what better holiday could I have asked for? The first thing I noticed when I climbed out of the aeroplane was the heat. I had just left Cape Town behind at 16°C and I landed in 33°C in Zurich. That’s more than double the temperature difference. We…
