Fish Eagle Trail
Fish Eagles fly and swoop. With precision they have an uncanny ability to snatch a fish from water while in full flight, their body following a predetermined trajectory that their magnificent wings support and execute their hunting mission. Two such creatures exist in an area in the Robertson Wine Valley and so much so that a trail is named after t...
Living the Life
Sometimes dreams are realised, other times they always remain a dream. Then again, sometimes we don’t even know we living the dream. What am I talking about? Each of our journeys have unique reasons behind them…and usually they centre around something we want, think we need or desire that would hit a sweet spot. Once this sweet spot is realised we ...
Trailblazer Trailer – Redemption
To make new. That’s this Tale. Simply put, Trailblazer Trailer exists to this end. It’s a journey in itself, and is still ongoing, yet this Tale is one of many to come about the journey this Trailer is Trailblazing. It’s never always about the first sip. Sip of what? Coffee? Well, maybe. In this case, a trailer had to be made new, a 47 year old hom...
Tracks
Tracks. It’s where one goes and what one leaves behind. Also known as Trailblazing, tracks are those paths that lead to places where some may not be able or have yet to go. This Tale outlines our tracks that we have recorded in various locations around the world. Click on the country in blue to see the track in that particular part of the world. Tr...
Tsitsikamma Ultra Trail Run – 23 April 2016
Antibodies. Sometimes the hardest part of the race is the preparation and mind shifting that comes as a result of knowing what lies ahead. This was no less true for the Tsitsikamma Ultra Trail Run, the running of this linear, 6 day, 60 kilometre hiking trail. No less true, not only because it was a first time anyone was to run of this trail in a da...
What determines a coffee culture?
This longer-than-usual Tale takes a deep look into why coffee is drunk the way it is in a particular culture. Grab a coffee and take 10 minutes to read this: Dubai Coffee Museum, Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Arguably one of the hardest things to pin point with regards to any given culture is the underlying and hidden reasons for why things are what...
Blaize Trail
When we left the West coast of Portugal after Sojourning 2015, little did we know that when we traveled to Mossel Bay at the bottom of Africa a little less than two months later, that the explorer Bartholomew Dias first landed at this bay, known then as the Bay of St Blaize, after leaving his Portuguese shores in search of India. Bartholomew Dias V...
Welcome the World

At the End of the World?
At the end of Sojourning in 2015 we had arrived at the small fishing and surfing village of Sagres in Portugal. Known in antiquity to the Trailblazers and discoverers of the worlds’ continents as the ‘end of the world’, we could not help but run along the most south-western cliff edges of Europe. This Tale brings an end to Sojourning in 2015, as we...
Sojourning – how it’s done
As we Sojourn, one may wonder how it’s done, or how we get through. This Tale provides a bit of a background into what goes on behind the scenes to Sojourning in 2015. Each of these are graces, graces that we could not do without and without them, Sojourning in 2015 would not have been possible… Planning our next move at Venice train station. “The ...
Common language – Marathon Trail Sierra Norte
By the time we arrived in Spain, we had got used to navigating through the language barriers of the various countries we had passed through using Google Translate. Taking part in the inaugural Marathon Trail Sierra Norte, as part of a shorter version of the Ultra Trail race just north of Seville, proved to be even more of a challenge language-wise,...
Journeying – Part 3
We are all on a journey. Each of our journeys have reasons behind them. The Apostle Paul had a reason behind his well-known Missionary Journeys. Christianity, the only religion in the world which places so much significance on places, largely has Paul to thank in its spread. The Apostle Paul has been one of the reasons for us embarking on our Sojou...
