Durban - KwaZulu Natal, South Africa

1

Situated on east coast of the Southern most tip of Africa. Durban's is a melting pot of cultures with beautiful swimming beaches.

Durban is one of the 3 major cities in South Africa and is one of the top holiday destinations in the country. A bustling city without feeling like one. With year-round beautiful weather, people flock to Durban’s beaches no matter the season. With the Drakensberg mountain range only a couple of hours outside of Durban, you can be frolicking in the waves at the beach in the morning and be snuggled up in front of a fireplace looking out at the mountains in the evening. These pictures were taken in Autumn/Winter- what a perfect time!

Nestled on the East Coast, Durban is South Africa’s best kept tourism secret. With her balmy sub-tropical climate, it’s pretty much shorts and tee shirt weather all year round. Spend a day on one of Durban’s gorgeous beaches, as the warm Indian Ocean laps your toes, or travel 45 minutes outside of the city to watch haughty giraffe strut across the horizon at a private game reserve. A little further, and you enter the majestic realm of the Drakensberg mountains, a World Heritage site renowned for its beauty and grandeur.

Back in the heart of the city you can get caught up in the bustling throngs of a street market, or take time out in the Botanic Gardens, a lush oasis amidst the hurly burly of city life. With an array of cultures and people as warm as the climate, you’re sure to be made welcome in Surf City.

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Spirit of Jogja

    It is the marvel of Java, the cultural center of Indonesia: Yogyakarta, or, as we assimilated locals call it, Jogja! Jogja is full of historic sites and exudes a very adventurous yet welcoming spirit. It is a true multireligious melting pot that has seen kings and sultans come and go, and religions introduced and either went or stayed. Time has been gentle on Jogja. It's one of my most favorite cities in Asia.
