South African Tourism

“It is so easy to waste our lives: our days, our hours, our minutes. It is so easy to exist instead of live. Unless you know there is a clock ticking” – Anna Quindlen

It was very clear from our recent trip to Cape Town that all our other municipalities / tourism boards could learn a lot locally instead of looking abroad for inspiration.

Florida Road with SPIGA Durban Sidebar Cubana Havana Lounge Cubana Florida Road,DurbanCappello Florida Road Keys on Florida give one a minuscule taste of what Beerhouse Stones Long Street Beuna Vista, Social Cafe and others offer inLong Street Cape Town, South Africa and surrounding areas.

I guess that’s why a lot of my friends say: I love Cape Town.

The Victoria Wharf, V & A Waterfront, Cape Town in photo is another story for another day.

“The arrogant, judgmental and egotistical appear to think they are better than us. Truth is, they are attempting to convince themselves that they are. Judging a person does not define who they are (for we really don’t know), but it does question why we are so ready to make such assumptions – and what it is within us that we are projecting upon them” ~ Unknown

The First Thursdays Durban 14 chosen by Marco Santoniccolo of SPIGA Durban on show at Sidebar 200 Florida Road Durban until end December 2016.

Go have a look as there is a huge difference between seeing one of these photos on your 18 inch monitor and being surrounded by 14 of them live at 46.8 inches each! Plus you can grab a glass of wine and light pasta while you sit there in this awesome Durban weather.

“In a car you’re always in a compartment, and because you’re used to it you don’t realize that through that car window everything you see is just more TV. You’re a passive observer and it is all moving by you boringly in a frame. On a cycle the frame is gone. You’re completely in contact with it all. You’re in the scene, not just watching it anymore, and the sense of presence is overwhelming.” ~ Robert M. Pirsig, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry Into Values
