ABOUT ME

What's not to love about waking up before the sunrise, running, hiking, walking, wandering, exploring, camping, and coming home tired, dirty, sunburnt, and smiling with lessons learned, stories to share and a new adventure to plan. I hope my images and stories inspire you to do just that.

MY TRAVEL COMPANION

As a kid, I never quite understood my dad's love for his bright yellow Kombi, with a bed in place of backseats. Today, I totally do. And from rivers in Namibia, to the canals of France, through all manner of dirt roads across South Africa, some of my best memories have been with my dad in the lead.

These are just a few of Muisbosskerm locals; a tight-knit family whose sincerity and sense of humour are matched only by their hospitality.

From rural landscapes to city-scenes; your journey from your perspectives

Waiting for waves

Waiting for waves

We woke up to a messy swell, made worse by steady onshore winds. So we packed the boards in the back, and set off up the coast in search of a break that might have some favorable conditions. And although we didn't find much, by the time we arrived back in Elands Bay fortune was on our side. The winds had died, the waves had cleaned up, and in the last light of the day, it was time to paddle out.

Leading the way

There's no one I trust more than my dad; he always has my best interests at heart. The west coast surf trip was his idea, he knew the spots, made the plans, and lead the way. What more could you want from a travel companion?

Your culinary road trip that will make the judges hungry!

Muisbosskerm

Muisbosskerm

North of Elands Bay, quite literally on the beach, you'll find Muisbosskerm: a seafood buffet bar none. Fish of all kinds, fresh from the ocean, are prepped & cooked over the coals & served alongside mussels, sweet potato, home-baked bread, vegetables, & paella. Spending a winter’s night here, with a blazing fire and waves crashing mere meters away is as close to a perfect meal as I’ve ever had.

The Wrangler InfiCool apparel that keeps you cool and confident while wandering

Wear it anywhere

When tough counts

Wear it anywhere

The simpler, the better. Denim goes anywhere, and does anything, making it a staple on any trip.


When tough counts

The Wrangler denim felt right at home hanging from the bullbar of my Defender. Far better suited here than safely tucked away in a cupboard.
