My wife and I probably reflect the cosmopolitan world of travel today. I am a South African who has worked in a number of African and Middle Eastern countries. My background is one of Managing Logistics and Materials Management. My wife is a Malaysian born Chinese with long experience in the advertising business.
We are owners of Horizon Cottages a self catering holiday establishment in beautiful Noordhoek, a coastal valley suburb of Cape Town, nestling between the slopes of the Table Mountain National Park and a spectacular 5 miles of white sand beach. We offer affordable fully equipped self catering family cottages and studio Cabanas for romantic couples.
I grew up in the south peninsula of Cape Town, where we now live, but have worked in Johannesburg, Botswana, and 2 Middle Eastern countries; accumulating a great love of the peoples, cuisines, cultures of this wonderful world which has been given to us in which to live. I have been fortunate to travel extensively both for business and pleasure. Having married a Malaysian Chinese wife, we have strong ties to another fascinating and wonderful country, Malaysia, which we visit often.
I am passionate about sharing our beautiful country, and am involved in promoting local tourism; writing articles for several websites as well as blogs.
Classic Cars : My long time hobby is the restoration and enjoyment of classic British Sports cars; Triumph sports cars and classic Minis. You can see my Triumphs or find out more at our club website : http://www.capetriumph.za.org/
Classical Music : I love classic Italian opera and classical symphonic music , but have an amazing collection of old vinyl from the 50’s to 70’s which I play on a classic transcription turntable. You can’t beat good old Rock ‘n Roll.
Cooking/Food : I guess we could be called foodies. The best part of working overseas and of travelling is to taste the rest of the world’s food. We enjoy eating out; and will publish reports on this blog of interesting places that we have eaten. Having a Malaysian Chinese wife, who is a great cook, means that we enjoy interesting food every day, even at home.
