I’m Chris, video creator, writer, photographer, outdoor lover and overlanding & road trip fan. After many years in the digital marketing space, I decided that corporate life wasn’t for me, sold my business and adopted a remote working lifestyle. I haven’t regretted it for a single minute. My day job is a digital creator & marketing specialist, helping forward thinking brands, particularly in the real estate, hospitality & tourism space to get the best from their online presence, especially through video.

Chobe Houseboat Sunset

Chobe River Luxury Houseboat

Drifting along the Chobe River in luxury houseboat is cruising like you won’t experience anywhere else. Forget the massive ocean-going liners of the Caribbean, the Med and Alaska, this is a far more intimate, and absolutely exclusive experience in one of the last unspoilt wilderness areas of the world. It’s a bit of a mission to reach, but so worth the effort, this...

Grand Canal Venice

Eurotrip: Venice, Rome, Amalfi & Pompeii

This post is being published 6 months after the past one, work pressure and travel has got in the way, but better late than never as they say. From Lulea Sweden to Venice requires 2 flights, with a stopover in Stockholm and then a direct flight to Venice. We flew on Norwegian Air, I can highly recommend it, new planes, great staff and Scandinavian efficiency. Venice...

Midnight Sun Sweden

Eurotrip: UK & Sweden

The flight from Cape Town via Dubai takes a bit longer than going direct, but the difference in cost between Emirates and SAA, British Airways & other national airlines is substantial. Thus began our Euro Trip 2014, which will take us from London to Lulea in Northern Sweden, via Stockholm, then on to Venice, Rome, Amalfi and Pompeii before flying back to London...

Fish River Canyon Namibia

Namibia: Swakopmund to Fish River Canyon

Apart from the roads within Etosha and then the long stretch from Khorixas to Henties Bay, much of the Northwards trip was on fair to good asphalt, from here it’s gravel all the way to the South African border at Vioolsdrift, apart that is, from the short stretch from Swakopmund to Walvis Bay. That’s what this trip is all about, experiencing the enormous...

Zell Am Zee Austria

Skiing in Zell Am See Austria

Travelling from Cape Town at the end of January, when it’s at it’s hottest and driest, to Austria in mid winter, with temperatures in the early minuses and snow on the ground is quite a shock to the system.

Victoria Falls

Victoria Falls Zimbabwe

Victoria Falls is probably not reflective of the rest of Zimbabwe, but as one of the country’s bigger foreign currency earners it’s been pretty much left alone. So it’s a nice little town, things work, the shops are stocked up, & hotels and restaurants are all open for business as usual.[vc_single_image image=”3790″...

Barbados Beach Sunset

Going to Barbados

When I was a teenager, there was a popular song which went something like “woah I’m going to Barbados, in the sunny Caribbean Sea“. That song really talked to me, ever since I have had an obsession with visiting that island. Eventually, circumstances made that dream become a possibility, and then a reality and the trip was on...
