Looking ahead

The weather hasn’t been very spring-like in the last couple of days, in fact it’s been much like a Cape winter, which is very ironic because as most of the country is covered in mud and seldom-fabulous rain coats the people of Cape Town have sunshine.

Don’t just sit around, sleep on it…

If you’ve ever lived the student life, practiced the art of couch surfing (globetrotting using friend’s couches as ‘accommodation’) or lived in a city where shoe boxes pass as studio apartments (I’ll give you a hint – starts with a ‘Lon’ ends in a ‘don’) then you’ve most likely come to realise that not all […]
