Odds and ends

It will probably be about the things that interest me and hopefully others. Like music, art, travel, holidays etcetera.

In the beggining

Well here we are at the start of my first post to a blog ever. A very good friend of mine has an apartment in Spain and he put me on to this Eye on Spain site. As I said, I have never blogged before and hope I don't bore you with irrelevant rubbish. I live in Scottburgh, Kwa  Zulu/Natal, which is just 60km's south of Durban, on the east coast of South Africa. Our seasons are the exact opposite of the northern hemisphere, so while you are basking in the lovely warm sunshine of Summer, we are shivering in the cold of Winter. Luckily the KZN coast has a sub tropical climate, so the Winters are mild and that's why we live herecool

In 1984 I bought a small business down here and basically semi retired, but as you know, expenses don't decrease with the passing years, so I found myself looking for more earning opportunities to earn, and coming from a publishing background, I produced a few different publications that helped keep the wolf from the door. Painting in water and oils is my hobby and music is my passion, listening, not playing, although I do try.

Although I have travelled to a few overseas countries during my life, Africa is my playground and Kruger National Park is my favourite destination for a holiday. Been going there for almost every year for the last 50 odd years. Well that's my story for now and lets hope it becomes more interesting as time goes by. If you have any questions or would like to discuss anything, I would love to hear from you. ..

Living near Durban in South Africa sounds very interesting and having your family close by is a blessing in itself. Please tell us more about your favourite food, shopping and where you go on day trips when not too busy.
