    It really is more fun in the Philippines!

    When one of my travel partners said to me that the current slogan for the Philippines is “Its more fun in the Philipines”, after spending 3 weeks in this beautiful country the statement really is true! With over 7000 islands it is physically impossible to visit every one in a three-week trip but we did manage to fit in quite a bit.

    Kriya takes Sri Lanka

    When thinking of a beach holiday for some reason Sri Lanka was never on the list of places I wanted to go. However, when we received an invitation to a wedding that would take place there it became something to re-think. We arrived at Bandaranaike International Airport on a ridiculously hot morning. When you look at weather reports and it says 35-38 degrees you really don’t expect the extreme humidity that comes with it. We were warmly greeted by our local tour company (JetWing) that would be accompanying us through the duration of our 10 day trip and made our way to the first stop, Negombo. Negombo is a beautiful part of…

    Old school is cool, Drive-in!

    To be honest, the drive-in for me was the absolute best! The whole family will be squeezed into my dad’s car in our pj’s and got to watch a super cool movie. Since a large amount of the drive-in’s closed down in Johannesburg and Pretoria, we haven’t had the chance to do this is a very long time till now!   This June, you can take a trip down memory lane with Montecasino’s Classic Drive-In, taking place on selected nights in the Outdoor Events Area.   The movie line up consists of a number of really good classic movies that will ensure that your winter evenings are warmed up to…

    Night Golf

    On an almost freezing evening I missioned to the Dimension Data Campus par 3 course in Fourways, getting ready to play something that I thought was quite peculiar… Night Golf. To my surprise once entering the Di Data Campus I did not see large flood light being set up or any lights at all, instead little green lights glowing in the distance. Once registered and handed a ball, that looks exactly the same as a normal golf ball and a glow necklace, we set off for the course.   It turns out that all the little green lights were glow sticks set up along the golf course to highlight the…
