The Elephant Guide to Kloof Street, Cape Town

I am a lucky fish when it comes to staying in Cape Town. I have family and friends with attics, couches, and guest rooms that always have my name on it. Great stuff because quite frankly I don't care for many hotels in Cape Town. After years in the production industry...

To do or not to do? About not counting countries.

How many countries have you traveled to?, is one of my interview questions. I stop and think. Not only do I not know the answer, the whole question strikes me as odd. Why would that have anything with my book or with my ability to travel if you can call it...

Hello, I’m Annika!
