Almost any outdoor activity can become an adventure, whether a small charming town, scenic park, deserted ghost town or a remote location off the beaten track. I’ve been travelling all my life, alone or with my family, and the joy is incomparable.
U.S.A. – Massachusetts House: In the distinctive gold-domed building atop Beacon Hill, the past meets the present. On weekdays, you can discover Massachusetts’ history on a free tour of the center of the state government. I like architecture with history mixed in its structure.
Umdloti, Umhlanga Coast, South Africa: Umdloti is the ideal place to unwind and enjoy the sunshine, beaches, rock pools, and sea. There are a handful of shops to keep one entertained but the absolute drawcard must be the beautiful beaches.
Cape Town: Live stream trained performers as they display detailed images, logos, and patterns through the art of movement. The next performance is happening on 17 May at 5:30 pm if you want to see a virtual fire jam. From a live cooking class with SA’s top chefs to a virtual fire jam and beer yoga, there is a lot to keep you entertained during lockdown. 12 museums by remote control. I do miss this place.
Seychelles, East Africa: A pristine country yet flight bookings and arrivals into Seychelles have declined significantly and this is already showing signs of adverse impact on the local economy. In addition to cruise ships, all leisure boats are not allowed entry into Seychelles’ waters until further notice. I’ll remember Seychelles just by looking at the photos and dreaming of being back.
Mozambique, Southern Africa: Mozambique is famous for the quality of its fresh seafood. The Portuguese influence is felt in dishes such as Peri-Peri (hot and spicy) Prawns and Peri-Peri Chicken. I feel like a native when I eat in its open stalls. Mozambique also has some of the most pristine dive sites in the world.
Melkos: Melkkos (milk food) is one of those South African heritage dishes that conjures up memories of family dinners ‘round the kitchen table and the sweetness of childhood. The recipe for the traditionally Afrikaans creamy, milky, cinnamonny concoction is often passed down from a long line of grandparents and parents
