Harry Potter Tour of London and Beyond 2019

Like any committed Potterhead, I remember exactly where I was and what I was doing when I read The Philosopher’s Stone. I was sick. Really sick. Stay-home-from-work-and-try-not-to-die sick. I was 21-ish, living in London and sleeping on a friend’s couch. He tucked me in that morning, admonished me to stay put and get better, made...

MSC Orchestra Launches SA Season!

Well, as date nights go, that one was pretty extraordinary. I can’t take credit.  It all has to go to MSC Cruises and the incredible MSC Orchestra, newly arriving in Durban Harbour and ready to begin her inaugural South African Season.  We have the privilege of her presence in our waters, up and down the...

P.S. I Love You, Ireland.

Raw, honest travel blog. I spent two weeks in Ireland over Christmas in 2017. My goodness, the people are wonderful — funny, warm and welcoming. They spoke a lot. A lot a lot. They were very skilled at making short stories long, and I loved every moment spent with the people I met. The young...

Oh, Florida.

Raw, honest travel blog. I spent two weeks in Florida in February 2018. I had been wanting to visit Florida since I was 6 years old, when I watched my first mermaid movie. Where the entire addiction to all things mermaid began. Where the dream to ‘grow up to be a mermaid when I’m big’...

Okay, New York. What’s Happening?

Raw, honest travel blog. I spent one week in New York, in September 2017. September is a very humid time to go to New York. The air was sticky and heavy. My hair went wild from the humidity, ruining any possible good photo opportunities. In Times Square I could feel the weight of smog in...

Growing Up in the Drakensberg

Raw, honest travel blog. I grew up in the berg. I found my feet, stumbling on hiking trails. I found my voice, competing with the screaming thunder that would role in with the night.
