Growing up, Toyota was always the first go-to brand that a lot of my friends’s family went for – including mine, because my uncle owned taxis. I grew up in a rural area where big cars were a must, and I remember being young and watching all the neighbourhood kids chase after the only Toyota Prado that existed on our street – in my naive mind, it was a sign of making it in life.  Well, call it a fu

This is by far the most satisfying stay EVER! I am not a self-catering staycation type of person and I have been on a few to know this – I am simply lazy!

Kia has finally launched its new Sonet and lucky for you, my dearest reader, I was there to capture every moment of it. In this week’s post, we look at how Kia manages to move with the times while merging its product offering with the encouragement for you to be inspired to be and go wherever you want.

The Suzuki Jimmy has been on my “to drive” list for as long as I can remember, but it always eluded me and as they say “patience is a virtue”. I waited for over a year to have the Suzuki Jimmy on test and when it arrived a day before my birthday, I could not stop looking at it. I was anxious about the trip I would be taking for the week to Magoebaskloof in the Limpopo province in the 4th Generation Jimny and I wanted to find out why everyone (including myself actually) has been gushing over… Suzuki Jimny, Anxious, Patience, Offroad, How To Find Out, Birthday, Travel, Birthdays, Viajes
