I went on my first overseas trip when I was 18 and I've been addicted to travel ever since. I've done budget backpacking, organized bus tours, luxury all-inclusive holidays and everything in between. My preference is solo budget backpacking.
I've travelled through around 60 countries on 5 continents. Born in Canada, I've also lived and worked in England, Scotland and Australia and studied in Thailand.

Have you looked at Swellendam ? There are some nice hikes in the area, or you can take a day trip from there down to Cape Agulhas (southernmost point of Africa). Oudtshoorn is another option. There's... See More
