Apr 13, 2008 - Mazeppa Bay, South Africa

The next day was amazing scenic drive to the wild coast. South Africa has gorgeous countryside: majestic mountains, rolling hills and big sky. It really is beautiful. We spent the next couple of days in a small town called Mazeppa Bay. Not much to do here but take it easy and relax on the beach. We were really fortunate to get invited for lunch with a local family. We were greeted with singing and dancing by the women and were then treated to a traditional home cooked meal. Everyone loved having their photos taken and we got some great...

Apr 22, 2005 - I'm the big 3-0

I know, can you believe it, this young buck is 30! So where were you on your 30th, you ask? Well in Coffee Bay, the Transkei, south africa, of course! So I chilled out there, taking surf lessons from a former world champ, saw some topless girls traditionally dance, and met some locals and travellers. It was a nice relaxing birthday week. A few days before my birthday, a few of us were taken to a local "shebeen" or mud shack bar where about 10 old ladies were chilling in there traditional garb and ocre on their face. After having a beer and...
