Behind The Wheel with...

My favourite part of the country is…

The Karoo

I was attracted to the town of Darling (where I live) because…

"I believe more South African's should be passionate about staying here!"

I took a wrong turn and found out I was NOT in MacGregor!

My favourite childhood memory growing up in South Africa is…

Travelling up the West Coast in our little Austin A40 to look at the wild flowers and scratch the shells of tortoises.

A local holiday experience I will never forget is…

Staying at home over Christmas and not leaving the house or answering a phone for 10 days! I just fed the cat, fed the dog and fed myself.

My fantasy guest and ultimate travel companion for the greatest road trip of all time would be…

David Attenborough.

Me and Evita’s biggest conflict or disagreement would have to be on the topic of…

Open windows or air conditioning in the car.

My biggest road trip disaster was…

Driving from London to Naples back in 1969, in a Morris Minor convertible that fell to pieces in Versailles.

I never travel without…

My AA card.

If there was one rule of the road that I would implement/enforce it would be…

Allow the other person to go first.

All local roads lead to…

Table Mountain.

 I believe South African’s should be more passionate about…

Staying here.

Any first time visitor to South Africa should know that…

There are no lions in the streets, just terrible drivers.

To have a true South African experience one MUST…

Always get into conversation with the chaps who look after you at a petrol station.
