I previously wrote about San Diego a bunch of times here. Being from Nelson Mandela Bay in South Africa (the east coast), I’m used to the beach. By the way, if you’re new to my blog, I write + take pictures of special moments along my travels. For more on African moments, I highly suggest: Chasing Elephants in Addo Elephant Park.  (more…)

Tutankhamun Artifacts

I was recently at an iconic exhibition held at The Texas Museum of Science & Technology... “Tutankhamun: Wonderful Things From The Pharoah’s Tomb”.

Skybok produced this 1-minute video profile of it! (see below)

I’ve always been fascinated with ancient Egypt. (There’s a great documentary on Netflix now, search for “Egypt” by BBC Films). Here are some more photos from the museum’s exhibition showcasing exact replicas of the artifacts discovered in his tomb. (A nice website on the exhibition with historical questions answered here). Also, check out 8 surprising facts about Tutankhamun.

An Afternoon at Francois Pienaar’s MAD Charity Pre-Argus Fundraiser

No Comments

I recently attended the Klein Constantia / Omega Pharma Quick-Step charity cocktail do in aid of Francois Pienaar’s MAD Charity (Make a Difference). Held at the gorgeous Klein Constantia wine farm, there was a fantastic turn-out despite the weather and everyone seemed ready to have a good time. There was an auction which saw some exciting items being swept up by enthusiastic bidders. From a 5 star break-away for two donated by the Royal Portfolio to a brand new top-of-the-range bike donated by Specialized Bikes, guests were keenly getting involved for a good cause. It also helped that pro-cycling legend Eddy Merckx was there!
