Selling Anne Murray

In so many ways, Cape Town was the end.  It was meant to be my last country in Africa for a while.  It was the last real travel goal I had set myself.  But most of all, it was the end of 17,000kms driving a scooter from Mali to South Africa.  It was the end of flat tires, bumpy roads, and feeling completely lost in the world.  But it felt too like it was the end of an adventure, and perhaps the end of the most epic travels of my life....

Hotel Review: Southern Sun Cape Sun

If you believe that first impressions are important, than you’ll be a massive fan of the Cape Sun Hotel by Tsango, in downtown Cape Town.  The hotel’s mammoth lobby is featured by a classy modern look dripping with character.  A dark bar carries a provocative glow while being backed by the trickle of a waterfalls behind the bottles of champagne and scotch.  Around tables in the lobby sit men in suits and women in evening dresses...
