Hi, thanks for visiting.  This blog is a work in progress and develops or becomes stationary depending on the amount of time I spend on my other careers.  These  vary between a non-paid property manager, sometimes paid freelance journalist, happy budget (but not always) traveller, daily dog walker, Zimbabwe destination enthusiast and budding author.

Under the ‘articles’ heading there are a selection of published pieces both current and from many moons ago.  Sadly some of the publications that I used to write for are no longer on the shelves.   There are however new ones around that have filled a space in the market.  A busy life has meant that writing got put on hold for over a decade but now I’m happily scribing again.

Under ‘Road Trips’ you’ll find a selection of recent road trips.  More will be added in time.

I’m in the process of migrating information on Zimbabwe from my other blog.

Happy reading

And remember, if your past comes knocking, don’t answer, it has nothing new to say.

Live, love, laugh

Enjoy the blog

    Good day….we spent Christmas in Nyanga 2 years ago and spent the day at the Gairezi River….there were cottages beside the river….are they available to rent over the Christmas period or can you recommend somewhere else. My husband and two sons are fly fishing mad (catch and release) and are so desperate to go back. We are a family of 4 (ex Zimbos) but our group would be larger as we have family, who reside in Harare, joining us.
    Many thanks.

    • Karen, Hi there. We were also at the Gairezi two Christmas’s ago and were staying in the cottages that you mention. They are managed by the Nyanga Downs Fly Fishing Club (NDFFC). Each cottage sleeps 4 but when I inquired about staying there a month or so ago they were closed. They have had to close before due to troubles with certain members of the local community. I can ask again for you tomorrow morning. If you are going to stay theory has it that you have to either be a member, or be accompanied by one.
