I love my family and close friends, they help me along. I like living a simple life and very comtemplative about this spiralling society we live in. Change comes easy and frequently, ne...

Amongst our group we have been fortunate to have two died-in-the-wool South Africans who have acted as highly knowledgeable tour guides.The Cape ... Read More »

Sake, fire and empty ski trails!

Experienced By: d_weisk

Nearing the end It is always a funny feeling writing the final blog once back home. In a sense it is hard to find the time to sit down and start writing, however, it is also a sense of realization that the trip is over.

We booked in for two days but should have only stayed one as the town  of Pamukkale itself was an oddly se... Read More »
