A new blog about to be born

Hi all

I'm about to start this new blog. For now I'm just getting to know the ropes of what offers.

I'm a 36-year old city-boy currently living in the platteland (rural regions), on the coastline of the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. I have a limited journalism background, spent a few years working as spokesperson for the University of Pretoria and have been the co-owner and managing director of Africa Deluxe Tours since 1998.

I have a keen interest in various aspects of my home country, the Southern Africa region and global issues. This blog will focus on my impressions, as a South African (based) individual on all things South(ern) African as well as insights on global issues as seen from this southern corner of the globe.

I'll be blogging away soon...
