Cultural outlooks – Himba’s in Namibia

Today western culture is starting to take over, but what is western culture, we don’t even know our own rules, customs and practices anymore. With technology taking over every aspect in our lives, customs have been turned upside down and now we don’t know who pays for dates or whether to be worried if our partners are checking out the opposite or same sex these days. Yet nothing goes at the same time making today’s era one where we need to find new and diverse ways of doing things with no one to show the way but ourselves.  I am…

Fond memories – Aquila private game reserve…

Aquila private game reserve is not just another travel place to me, rather a place where I started to stand on my own two feet, many characteristics of my life changed during this chapter of my life. I worked here for a few years and learnt a great deal; this was over 10 years ago and can hardly believe it myself. Many things can change and evolve over the years, I know it probably won’t be the same place as I left behind.  I have thought about visiting often, I choose not to however. I know there will be a…

Let’s talk money, the costs of Iceland and how I went about it…. 

Everyone travels differently and put emphasis on what they find important to their trip, especially working within a budget of any kind, you will have a criterion that often takes priority to you whether it accommodation, food, activities or the destination.  Myself, I would rather put experiences or activity at the top, then accommodation and last food.

Accommodation wise, I do…

This day was a day of relaxing in town and seeing local sights. I spotted a zoo that had arctic foxes, visiting the Husdyragardurinn park and zoo was a little different to what I have seen before, the park side was amazing and a great insight into farming and the ways of farming, the zoo was a little less optimistic and felt more like a side venture and not quite suitable for some of the wild animals, however it is a great medium to teach young children and adults alike about conservation and where your food comes from which was…

Iceland – Once in a lifetime trip (16.05 – 26.05.2019, day 9…

Thingvellir National Park, I stumbled upon the more commercial side of the park, which did put me off a little to start, walking around the main walks at the entrance. I enjoyed driving through it more and saw there was plenty of opportunity to pull over in free parking areas and take other walks which suited Iceland a lot more. Next time I visit ill do this instead. Gullfoss, more of Iceland’s many spectacular waterfalls, this one was lucky enough to be called friend. The landowner said when Englishmen where buying land and were interested in buying Gullfoss, he said…
