Love your gut!

A few years ago, my husband, professional ultra-distance trail runner, Ryan Sandes and I, both contracted Giardia whilst hiking in the Fish River Canyon - a water-born parasite that infects the small intestine. Hundreds of people hike the canyon every year and the water in the Fish River is thought to be safe but authorities do recommend using water purification tablets. I have to admit that there were a few occasions that we were simply too thirsty to wait 15 to 30 minutes for water to purify.

How do you start your great day?

How do you start your great day?

I have to admit that with being about 98 weeks pregnant, my days start off rather S-L-O-W-L-Y now, with me resembling something close to the Oros man wobbling around and I don’t have much motivation right now other than getting this little human out of me! :-)

His release carved my future along with every other South African. His release was also ironically linked to my potential future coming to an abrupt halt…

Worst drivers in the world – Men vs Woman!

I’m a woman, so naturally when asked about the worst drivers in the world see the King Price blog , I pondered about whether I should address the whole “Are men really better drivers than woman?” issue. If you’re a good journalist or blogger, research has to support your findings, so “aresearching I went”. What I found was rather interesting…

Singin’ in the Rain by Pieter Toerien

Some of my earliest, and fondest memories are of my mum and I singing classics like
‘SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN’, ‘I feel pretty’ and ‘It’s the Hard-Kock Life’! She sang for the
local village choir and our home was always filled with music.
