Guns & Butter: Cape Town Travel Guide

Cape Town is my second favorite city in the world next to Shanghai, China. There is too much to do and see there making TPOL's Travel Philosophy of staying for 3-4 days inapplicable.

One Night in Knysna: A Quickie Travel Guide

Given the weather and the duration of my time in Knysna, this will not be a comprehensive travel guide. Still, I can tell you what to do when it's raining and pouring. To begin, Knsyna is a golfer's paradise. I wasn't a golfer at the time and am glad I wasn't because it would've been quite the tragedy to travel all the way there and miss out on a few rounds in golf heaven.

A crafty man, TPOL needed to get from the Western Cape to Mauritius in business. At the same time, he wanted to visit Durban. The problem is that he only had one day to visit Durban and couldn't justify paying or using points for a flight there when he ultimately had fly out of Joburg.

Bunny Chow in Durban, South Africa

On the way to the Hilton Durban, a comfortable choice in the heart of Durban, I had a chat with the taxi driver.

After learning why so many Indians came to South Africa, I asked the driver about the Indian food in Durban.

South African Airways VFA-JNB: Beautiful Business Again

Last time I flew SAA for the one hour flight, it was after my SAA flight from Sao Paulo to South Africa. That time, I did the blogging community a disservice and just fell asleep. This time, I was wide awake and able to share more pictures and my experience.

Priority Pass Smoker’s Lounge JNB: Smokers Welcome All Day

After my delightful flight from Victoria Falls, I arrived at 3PM in Johannesburg and tried to access the SAA lounge in JNB using my Ethiopian Airlines business class ticket and my SAA ticket stub from my flight to JNB from VFA.

Bidvest Premier Lounge Johannesburg: 3 Hour Time Limit!

Oh wow, not I see why they restrict access to three hours here. Step aside Emirates First Class Lounge Dubai , there's a new lounge in town.

Ethiopian Business JNB-ADD: The Worst Flight Experience

Move over Frontier. Out of the way Allegiant. There may be a new winner for worst flight I have ever taken that makes Air France from DTW-CDG look half decent.
