Well, I decided to start a blog - created it, and now here we are....
Due to absolutely no advance planning on how to structure the content whatsoever (being new to the blogging/website scene an' all), I have decided to approach the whole project with the same spirit and method of the traditional African Safari - get your gear together and boldly set forth, deal with all challenges on a 'first come, first served' basis...
I apologise for the haphazard way I will be approaching this project, but the aim is to offer helpful tips in a relaxed forum atmosphere. Hopefully the blog content will shape out nicely as we go. (I have a designer working on a website type blog framework for me as we speak and we will shortly present you with a shiny new blog, complete with the new logo!)
If there is a specific topic, venue, restaurant or any travel related issue (in Africa) that any of you would like to know more about, just send me a quick mail and I will either respond personally, or post an article, depending on the nature of the enquiry. Please feel free to comment on any of my postings.
I believe in total frankness and honesty - there will be absolutely no taboo subjects, and no sugarcoating in order to make something or somewhere sound more appealing. My aim is to offer practical advice in order for you to get the most out of your experience in Africa.
After my recent tour of the South African Cape South Coast, and Cape Town, I have quite a few things I would like to get off my chest. (Cape Town is most definitely not on my list of favourite places) Don't worry - I won't go 'Cape Town bashing,' (not more than necessary anyway) there are a lot of positives in Cape Town's favour as well, and I believe everybody should go there at least twice in their life....
