In 2016 I retired and we moved from Japan to South Africa. One of our passions is hiking and over the last year I have found a couple of other Blogs really helpful in researching new trails in the Western Cape (see link)

However we (Mike and Jax) have also found other hikes which we really enjoy and I decided to learn how to set up website/blog in order to share our hiking trips and trails with others in the hope that this will inspire you to go on some of the lovely hikes in the Western Cape

Thinking about this I also wanted to create an area to save my personal memories, photos and maps for our hikes, mountain bike rides and ski tours in one place for future reference and enjoyment. I have decided to set my sites up by continent focusing on Africa to start with. Here are links to my Europe site (to be created) and my America site (to be created)

I have also created a site for my scuba diving adventures link to my dive site
