Monday Musings 16 May: Are you phubbing kidding me?

2022_05_16MondayMusingsHeaderImage

Any other moms notice that pre-primary schools have had an astounding increase in playground injuries over the last year? As social distancing rules have lifted, kids are sharing play spaces with more children than they’re used to, and play areas have become smaller. Kids have gone long periods without practising spatial awareness; monkey bars are […]

Monday Musings 25 April: It’s time to think out of the box 

2022_04_25MondayMusingsHeaderImage

The funny thing about change is that it can go either way – it can be the best thing that happened, and it can feel like the worst. It is, however, inevitable and if we resist change for the fear of the negative, we resist the possibility that it could lead to better.   Hopefully Earth […]

Monday Musings 07 March: Africa, let’s live again

2022_07_03MondayMusingsHeaderImage

This week’s release of SA Tourism’s Live Again campaign brought a lump to the throat of many industry players. The ad captures so wonderfully the inner-calling Africa instils in travellers, the beauty we continue to share with the world and the colourful cultures that make up who we are.  TRAVEL will Live Again.  “Come as […]

Monday Musings 31 January: Long-term memories loading… 

Monday Musings

It is officially day nine-thousand-and-seven of January, and what a relief that it is finally over, and we can now look forward to the shortest month of the year. I’m sure many have set their New Year’s resolutions and are hopefully doing better than others who already regret the gym contract they took out in week one.   As we look ahead at 2022, set our personal and work goals, and try to make […]

Monday Musings 13 December: Set the rudder and grab the oars. 2022 here we come!

Monday musings

Listen up 2022! 2020 caught us by surprise. We bargained with 2021 to play nice. This time, the gloves are off and we’re ready for whatever you want to throw at us. Let me remind you that with that comes an industry that has built stronger relationships and people who have cultivated the strength and determination to handle just about anything.   Much like the Cape […]

Monday Musings 08 November: Don’t be busy, be lekker 25

Does anyone else feel like they’ve suddenly had to throw on their takkies and start running 100 miles an hour? The tread wearing a little thin, but there’s no stopping you. After all, you’re catching up on two years of work and being busy feels like a reason to celebrate.  The question is, are you busy, or are you productive? This […]

Monday Musings 04 October: Are you writing a story worth telling?

Monday Musings 04 October: Are you writing a story worth telling? 30

“Is this thing working? Can you hear me?”    Do you remember the days of paper cups and string telephones, where messages were created and forgotten? They seem to be long gone… Has creative communication been lost to the world of iPads and smartphones? Are photo albums fading into non-existence? It seems that keeping track of […]

Monday Musings 30 August: What if we told you there’s no app for that?

Monday Musings 30 August: What if we told you there’s no app for that? 36

The sound of quiet steps through a museum, the texture of sand under your feet, the magic of building a snowman in a winter wonderland (like we experienced in some parts of KZN this weekend), or the aromas of street food just cannot be captivated through an app, no matter how smart your phone.  It’s almost hard to […]

If you woke up feeling any level of despair or anxiety this morning, know that you are not alone. Let’s continue putting one step in front of the other each day and continue to fight the good fight. Do what you need to do today – call a friend, vent, take the time you need to process life under adjusted Alert Level 4. […]

Monday Musings 21 June 2021: Travel Etiquette – Take me back to the ‘50s!

Monday Musings 21 June 2021: Travel Etiquette – Take me back to the ‘50s! 48

In a modern, laid-back world, it’s easy to forget how awesome flying actually is. Flying in the ‘50s was considered magical! A trip on an aeroplane was a holiday on its own. Passengers used to dress up, light a cigarette, line up for a group photo, and you were truly made to feel like royalty as […]
