South African In: Tuscany

Travelling to Tuscany was one of the most exhilarating experiences I’ve had. I toured to Pisa, Montecatini and Florence. I’d heard so much about the “Leaning Tower of Pisa” that getting off the bus that day in Pisa was a tick off my bucket list! I loved the old streets, the ancient buildings and the…

South African In: Toledo

4 Months ago while I was in Europe, I took a trip to Toledo. It’s a small village south of Madrid in Spain. It’s an official UNESCO World Heritage Site because of its sheer history and beauty. It has a famous history in the production of bladed weapons, which are now popular souvenirs of the city.

Doubell Machines Blog

So something I’ve been working on is the blog for Doubell Machines. Tadaa! Here it is: Proudly Mandela Bay: The Lives Behind Your Doubell Machine. Again, I’m discovering my “inner designer” and enjoying it so much.

Filming for The Great British Story

Last week I worked on a documentary-series called “The Great British Story” for BBC. It’s a documentary about the history of Britain, with different episodes making up the series. This was for episode 4. What an incredible experience. It was at The Castle monument here in Cape Town.

Countess for a Day!

Today I’m off to a place called Muizenberg for a French Composers concert. Muizenberg is a beach-side suburb and is situated on the shores of the Cape Peninsula (on the coast). Again, the venue I am going to is an old building that has been restored. It was built in 1929 and aims to reflect the spirit of…
