A Moment in Gothenburg, Sweden

A Moment in Gothenburg, Sweden

Flying into Sweden was an incredible experience. As we approached Stockholm I was surprised by the sheer number of lush, green islands nestled in the Baltic Sea. And I was equally as surprised by the never ending landscapes filled with indigenous forests and lakes on approach to Gothenburg. I was left wondering which fish species …

The 3 Falls Trail Run 2017

Having thoroughly enjoyed last year’s event, I did a great job in forgetting to register for the 2017 3 Falls Trail Run. Despite putting my name on the waiting list an entry never came my way. Thankfully I got a lucky break when a colleague was unable to run and passed his entry on to …

A Disaster of a Journey

Durban Beachfront Showing Off

Durban Beachfront Showing Off

Despite being winter the water was warm and conditions looked promising for a few wavies. Consistent offshore winds in the preceding days had flattened the swell, other than a rather large shore-break which did hinder fishing slightly. Durban itself put on a …

Eating in India

Eating in India

I just completed my third business trip to India in 3 months. It’s been a remarkable experience travelling to India so frequently. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to travel the country as I’ve been stuck in the office, but it’s been great none the less. I’ve gotten to experience some of Pune, a lot of …

Having had an immensely successful snow adventure 2 years ago (click here for the full report), we decided to give it another go when we heard that large falls were predicted over for the weekend.
