It is the end of Travel Week on The Blog Tag. I love to travel and would love for everyone to experience it at least one time in their life. One does not need to cross country borders to travel. Exploring your own province and country is fun and exciting. Getting to know your own backyard means you can gush about it to everyone else. Even though I have been blessed with the opportunity to cross borders numerous times coming home to Cape Town is still one of the best feelings in the world.

Smartphone, tablet and a good book

When I was a teenager I imagined myself marrying either an Irish or Italian man…with a deep voice (teenage dreams)
- If you could live anywhere where would you live?
I couldn’t imagine myself living anywhere else other than Cape Town. This city is in my veins.
- Why do you enjoy traveling?
It allows me to see how differently similar (or similarly different) we all are and to appreciate what we have right here in the R of SA
- Do you have a travel buddy?
That would be the hubster
- What are some of the interesting places you’ve visited and the different cultures?
Buenos Aires struck a nerve with me. It is so much like home. They even have people selling sweets and chips on the train like they do here in Cape Town. The indigenous people are beautiful and their music haunting. I need to go back there.
18. Have you ever had any bad travel experiences?
Oh yes I have. You can read about it here.
19. Advice for those who want to travel but think they can’t?
Not much is needed to travel. Pack a bag of snacks. Google some spots in your hometown or city you haven’t seen before. Get in your car, a taxi, bus or train and make your way there. You’d be surprised what jewels you find in your own backyard (I say these words a lot). Below is a picture I took just down the road from my house.
