Finished the Camino!!

Day 29: Hit the 100km (60 miles) to go mark today!!! I don’t want it to end. First thing this morning I saw John. I was starting to think he was a fake and didn’t exist. He is in my Camino Facebook group and started the day before me and we were in the same area. I finally found him. I taught him my recently slowed down way of stopping in every village for a drink or food, talking to anyone that would listen, and being in...

6 Years, Grief After Suicide

I also felt ashamed that Sean had given me a...

With all the “bad” the media exposes us too, I think it is important to see the beauty. Travel broadens my mind. I get to share new experiences with others. I get to see how the people of the world live. To see the similarity and the differences of...

Matty and I went from Joburg to Cape Town on an EPIC adventure. Daddo mat with us for a week in the bush aka Kruger National Park where we did a self drive safari. From there we drove the Garden Route to Cape ¬†Town. We went bungee jumping, diving with sharks, took a wine tram, and explored what the country had to offer. Here are a few photos. I have added at the bottom a few websites I recommend for anyone planning a trip.   Here...

Video Year in Review

So over the last year I took a few video clips with no real purpose. I decided to throw them together to make a video montage of some things I have seen/done. I have been saying I want to get more into video lately. We have a few trips coming up that I hope to do more video and get more into it. Stay...
