Adding to my bucket list

Wed, 4 Jun 2014 | By katja | Views [127]

The trees stretch up around me to paw at the sky. We're driving along the road, music blasting - not my style - while I try to sleep, my eye twitching very unwillingly to the beat. I had to wake up at 6 o'clock in the pre-dawn dark to be here, and ... Read more >

My 2014 Travel Writing Scholarship - Euro Roadtrip entry

Thu, 15 May 2014 | By graceoneill | Views [758] | Comments [1] | Scholarship Entry

Sitting in the back of an open-aired Jeep, heaving across the African Savannah during sunrise sounds like a fairly clichéd image splattered across the glass of a cheap Travel agent. Actually experiencing it is like being violently slapped awake by some ... Read more >

Very nice shoes...

Thu, 15 May 2014 | By willemvanderidder | Views [173] | Comments [1] | Scholarship Entry

Very nice shoes… I met her on a rainy Sunday night in the city center of Cape Town. She begged for some money. Was it because her brown eyes looked a little sad at me, or because of her thick belly by which I noticed she was pregnant? Or was it maybe ... Read more >

How did I end up here? That’s what I’m pondering while taking a short promenade around the Sandton area of the city of Johannesburg. It’s a placid late winter night in the middle of May with a smell of unknown leaves pervading the air. It’s cold enough ... Read more >

Adventure in the Everyday

Thu, 15 May 2014 | By nomadnadine | Views [36] | Scholarship Entry

How did I end up here? Well, at some point in the last two years, I made the decision to find the adventure in the everyday. It’s not one easy, simple quick-fix choice that turns water into wine. It’s a tedious journey that makes the hardiest of travelers ... Read more >

A Smiley in South Africa

Thu, 15 May 2014 | By alex_newby | Views [54] | Comments [2] | Scholarship Entry

Dripping murky juices onto the newspaper that held it, our smiley crackled like the fire it had just been pulled from. A sheep’s head that has been split down the center and barbequed, a “smiley” is a local favorite in the Guguletu Township outside of ... Read more >

Lions in the Afternoon
