Hurricane Surfing In Cornwall

November 18, 2017

‘To be able to share what you do and what you know with people is just quite incredible’  – James Otter

I recently found myself in the quaint surfing town of Porthtowan in Cornwall, home of the ridiculously delicious & carb-o-licious Cornish Pasty (Cornwall that is, not Porthtowan specifically). We had arrived a couple of hours before sunset and were greeted by beautiful leafy narrow country lanes flowing up and over the green hills. As we drove down the narrow lane into Porthtowan, we got our first glimpse of the glassy ocean which was dotted with surfers getting the last of some decent conditions before Hurricane Ophelia was to rear her head the following day.

‘There’s surf! How cool is this guys?!’ I bellowed from the driver’s seat, my face up against the windscreen in an attempt to get a better look of the surf. We drove down the sandy road towards the beach and beautiful sea cliffs and watched as humans strolled barefoot past our car, surfers in suits running to and from the beach, either with a smile on their face from their recent session or in a hurry to get one last surf in before the sun sets.

Thinking of going on a scenic camping trip but aren’t sure where you should go? I only have one answer: Namibia!

This my ‘Ultimate Namibia Camping Guide’ that should hopefully answer all of your camping-related questions below.

Cape Town to Kenya: Our 4×4 Self-Drive Route

October 12, 2017

Welcome to part 2 of my Cape Town to Kenya blog post. In case you missed Part 1, let me fill you in real quick: my boyfriend and I have recently just returned home to Cape Town from a 3 month 4×4 self-drive expedition in our Land Rover Defender TDi named Pumba. Our journey took us 24000km from Cape Town to Kenya and back however whilst on the road, we both noticed how hard it was to get up to date and relevant information about potential routes, border crossings, fee’s, national parks and general 4×4 self-drive information.

I have therefore broken this topic down into two blog posts each containing information pertaining to:

Part 1: Everything Border Related: Vehicle Fees, Vehicle Requirements, Visas & Last Minute Thoughts.

Part 2: Our Route

September 22, 2017

If you’re here, you may be in the same predicament as we were in a few months ago; trying to plan a trip around Southern & East Africa however significantly lacking up to date information about potential routes, border crossings, fee’s, national parks and general self-drive information. After making it to Kenya and back in our Land Rover Defender TDi named Pumba, I thought that I would break this topic down into two blog posts each containing information pertaining to:

Part 1: Everything Border Related: Vehicle Fees, Vehicle Requirements, Visas & Last Minute Thoughts.

Part 2: Our route & stop-overs

Please Note: I will only be able to give information pertaining to a vehicle which is South African registered, and visa requirements/costs etc., for myself who is on a SA passport, and my boyfriend, who is on a UK passport. Read More
