Watch all of these and you WILL Shed a Tear.

I don't claim to be a man who never sheds a tear and I never will. There are moments when you just feel the need to shed a few. Well after watching these three videos I had a good few rolling down the old cheeks. Does it still make me a real man? Hell yes it does. Come and give them a watch. If you don't shed a few then I don't know what is wrong with you. Anyway I am off to chop some wood and eat some gravy. You know manly things.

Living in a World of Strangers.

I have touched on this in the past, but I have never really gotten deep. You know wet suit deep. So let's dive in....By definition a stranger means: a person whom one does not know or with whom one is not familiar. Or a person who does not know, or is not known in, a particular place or community. And yes I am sure no one would dispute that. What I now know is how traveling is able to turn a stranger from a random person you pass on a street to a friend you will have for life.

Thought for the Week: Strangers, Grass and Big City Life.

So as most people would agree. Traveling is great, of course it comes with its challenges but that is all part of the awesome adventure. You learn so many different things about yourself that you wonder who that stranger was you left behind all those months ago. There are also those adjustments that you need to make. For me coming from Africa and growing up in a small town or village if you will, meant that the big city brought something new to the table. Again this weekend I found myself in the capital of South Korea, Seoul and it seems that it is possible to make every experience unique.

It's Friday! Let's Dance Around!

This has been one long week. I mean a week that I have not had in a while. As I write this it is 2:36 pm on a Friday afternoon and I am watching that clock on the wall. By clock on the wall I mean cell phone of course. Which I pull out my pocket every five minutes to see if something interesting has happened on one of the 6 social media apps I have. But let's get back to the point. Whether you are sitting in South Africa or you are somewhere else around the world, I am sure you are glad it is Friday. Even my unemployed friends will be breathing a sigh of relief as they finally have someone to hang out with now....

Becoming an Identity Thief

I had never imagined that when I left for the States I would come back a completely different person. We used to mock those certain individuals that did one of what I called the “Big Three life-changing experiences”: teaching English in Asia, a ski season in Colorado or those annoying Facebook official Yachties. Get real. Why spend your time scrubbing boats when you should be studying or working? Something told us that a loss was made by those who did that. This loss was time.

Thought for the Week: Seoul, Summer Camp and a Super Hero Killer

It's summer in Korea and what that means is heat....and lots of it. It also means rain and lots of it. It seems that is the recipe in South East Asia. You can't have the heat without the rain. Nothing like sweating in the rain. If it sounds like complaining then I don't apologise, because even the locals complain. But I suppose it is all part of the experience. This weekend I traveled to the capital Seoul, once more for an interesting time. I was lured here under false pretenses that my friend would be there for a few beers at his house. I was wrong, I arrived to a message stuck on his door....."Gone on a Tinder date, will be back soon"..... That was at 7.30pm, he arrived back at 1.30am. No worries though, I made myself at home and preceded to eat and drink everything in his house.

We Climbed a Volcano and it was Cold!!!

This article has been coming for a while. Mike "Saffa" as he calls himself - yes sometimes I question our friendship - has asked constantly where on earth this article was, well it is here now. We set off on another adventure and this time we were Japan bound. And yes we did climb a mountain/volcano known as Mount Fuji....yip we are a big deal. I may have told a few of my friends about this a few times, so they are pretty sick of hearing about it. It all comes down to one thing though...jealously...unless you are like my smelly Welsh friend Sam who has climbed Kilimanjaro then maybe he isn't jealous. Anyway I am rambling, first off the pic above is not mine, it's straight off Google because well I climbed in Summer because I thought it would be warmer. How very wrong I was. The pictures and videos below are mine so have a look. 

Interstellar Trailer Shows Us Something Awesome

Interstellar Trailer Shows Us Something Awesome

Christopher Nolan, the man who brought us the Dark Knight trilogy and Inception, now brings us this beauty. Interstellar! It has an all star cast, including Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway. I watched the first trailer a while back and it was awesome, but this one is even better. There are some really good movies coming out and I tell you, I can't wait for this one.
