Bringing the World home
For the past 14 months we have experienced the people of Dominican Republic, England, Burundi, Taiwan, Germany, Mauritius, Luxembourg, Saudi Arabia, Australia, United Arab Emirates, Ukraine and more from five continents. Bringing the world to our door step and beyond into our home has been a privilege one doesn’t often get to experience or be a par...
La Mont Trail
Simplicity: a waterfall and a mountain. These words describe such a treat a trail brings outside of Bonnievale, about 2 hours from Cape Town. Located on a cheese producing farm, the La Mont Trail brings about new simplicities that are enough to lift one’s head above. This post tells our Tale of our day walk on this intimate trail tha...
Trailblazer Trailer – Artisan
It’s more than artisan – its Creation, with care and mostly love. It’s not in the art! As much as each and every coffee bean is individually hand sorted from defects at its Source, so Trailblazer Trailer individually and timeously hand makes each cup of coffee. From the freshly grinding of the beans to the skill in brewing, each cup is given&n...
Ultra-Trail Cape Town 65 km – 10 December 2016
It’s not about the distance. Sure, 65 kilometres is a long way…a long way to run, not just on mountain trails, but up and over mountains too, but it is not about the distance. If anything it’s all about time, time on one’s legs, for hours and hours at a time. The Ultra-Trail Cape Town 65 kilometre was one of those great Ultra Trail Running rac...
Cities
This reflective Tale about cities was inspired by our Sojourning 2015. They rise and fall, they exist. Their streets are paved, paving the way for thousands of souls to pass through. Their buildings give way to elaborate architecture, towering above, always out of reach. Cars everywhere, never sleeping, always moving. A melting pot, cultures meet, ...
22 Waterfalls
We really like waterfalls. There’s something way more romantic and pleasing than just staring at water cascading down a mountain ravine. Intoxicating in its movement, waterfalls are refreshing – a continuous movement that makes us wonder about its source, and how some waterfalls never, ever, dry up. Such a waterfall exists about 2 hours north of Ca...
Trailblazer Trailer – Relationship
What is in a relationship? It is said that the coffee beans’ journey is likened to a race where a baton is passed from one process to another… Start with the end in mind? (Yzerfontein Cycle Experience, Yzerfontein, Western Cape, South Africa). The trail that the coffee we brew took from its Creation into the hands of the persons we meet has pa...
Fish Eagle Trail
Fish Eagles fly and swoop. With precision they have an uncanny ability to snatch a fish from water while in full flight, their body following a predetermined trajectory that their magnificent wings support and execute their hunting mission. Two such creatures exist in an area in the Robertson Wine Valley and so much so that a trail is named after t...
Living the Life
Sometimes dreams are realised, other times they always remain a dream. Then again, sometimes we don’t even know we living the dream. What am I talking about? Each of our journeys have unique reasons behind them…and usually they centre around something we want, think we need or desire that would hit a sweet spot. Once this sweet spot is realised we ...
Trailblazer Trailer – Redemption
To make new. That’s this Tale. Simply put, Trailblazer Trailer exists to this end. It’s a journey in itself, and is still ongoing, yet this Tale is one of many to come about the journey this Trailer is Trailblazing. It’s never always about the first sip. Sip of what? Coffee? Well, maybe. In this case, a trailer had to be made new, a 47 year old hom...
Tracks
Tracks. It’s where one goes and what one leaves behind. Also known as Trailblazing, tracks are those paths that lead to places where some may not be able or have yet to go. This Tale outlines our tracks that we have recorded in various locations around the world. Click on the country in blue to see the track in that particular part of the world. Tr...
Tsitsikamma Ultra Trail Run – 23 April 2016
Antibodies. Sometimes the hardest part of the race is the preparation and mind shifting that comes as a result of knowing what lies ahead. This was no less true for the Tsitsikamma Ultra Trail Run, the running of this linear, 6 day, 60 kilometre hiking trail. No less true, not only because it was a first time anyone was to run of this trail in a da...
