I created the “Travellers’ Tales” section to give other travellers an opportunity to talk about their travels. Today I would like to introduce you to Carmen, a travel blogger based in Hilton, Kwazulu-Natal. She blogs at Meanderings.
I would love to hear about your travels too. Go to “Travellers’ Tales” , fill in the quick questionnaire and email it to me with your blog links.
I live in KwaZulu-Natal, in Hilton, just outside Pietermaritzburg. My main focus on blogging is in KZN. I enjoy finding out the story behind destinations and the people that are there. I have started expanding my visits further afield in South Africa.
Being packed into a station wagon as dawn was lighting the sky to head off on a road trip with my family. The happiness of being lulled to sleep in a vehicle, having my family around me and the anticipation of seeing someplace new.
Shayamanzi, I stayed on one of the houseboats, enjoyed wildlife viewing, tiger fishing and a jacuzzi overlooking the Lake Jozini.
I love fly fishing, but I fished with regular tackle. The fish weren't much in an eating mood, but sitting in the jacuzzi watching the sun dip into the water at sunset was breathtaking.
The kind that I lose track of what day I am on. Kruger Park is a great example of this. When you are in sync with the bush and go according to its time.
Gosh, that's really tough. Shayamanzi ranks right up there.
Get up early and go fishing on a tender boat. The stories you hear from the staff while waiting for a tiger fish to take your bait are just as good as the catch.
That would have to be my BFF, Kirsten Rae Hughes. Great company, good laughs and an absolute whizz on a DSLR and phone camera.
Pack light – leave space for your tech (hahahaha)
The Seychelles, to fly fish for bone fish on the flats.
There are a couple, like the Midlands Meander in KZN, and Clarens in the FreeState.
Sitting in a 5 star restaurant at a travel destination and whispering to the waitress that I didn't order something only to be told it is the amuse bouche 🙂
Thank you, Carmen , for sharing your fascinating travels with us!
