South African LD Triathlete of the Year 2011/2012

Being in France and at the Tour de France is an enormous privelege. I have been to the Tour a few times before, but never have I had such a special day as this one! The day did not start out according to plan – nothing unusual for me – and after being misguided by […]

There is one thing more frustrating than the airline themselves…. THAT passenger! Anyone who has been on at least one flight will be able to relate – after all, there is always at least one on every flight. I have to confess to probably being a bit annoying myself – I am always the passenger […]
