Easter Roadtrip into the bush on My Lime Boots

EASTER ROADTRIP INTO THE BUSH   The Onthophagus taurus and I have much in common. Able to roll up to 10 times its weight, a male is able to pull 1 141 times his own body weight. That is the equivalent of an average person pulling six double-decker buses full of people; when last did you do […]

Come Explore With Me Wildekrans Wine Estate on My Lime Boots

It’s a Monday morning and I’m in a vineyard on a wine farm in Bot River. A cool sea breeze dances teasingly around my person, bringing a momentary respite from the relentless South Africa sun beating down upon my back. In fact, I am in the Pinot Noir block on the farm and the winemaker, […]
