Getting a little Wayward and Lost in Städtlerwald

Getting a little Wayward and Lost in Städtlerwald

As the season slows and I settle into a new life here in Switzerland, I am trying to explore as much of my surroundings as possible. Every day I pull on my boots, my coat and my gloves and I venture into the Swiss landscape to explore the place I now call home. One of the most…

Peering through God’s Window in Mpumalanga

I stood on my tippy toes at the edge of the world. My eyes tried to pierce the haze to catch sight of the Indian Ocean beyond Mozambique. I am perched at God’s Window, approximately 1 730m above sea level. The precipice is part of the very eastern Drakensberg Mountain range that forms part of the…

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…
