... Anne-Marie came for drinks and a meal here. They loved the house and in fact, they had looked at the complex a while ago. We were surprised to hear just how much these houses cost.

It's a strange feeling to be in a country where you'll likely never be exposed to how the vast majority of ...

It's corn based and everyone drinks from the same bucket. According to Travis, he was happy to try it once, but that was enough. We drove about 4 hours north to our first campsite in the only region of the world where rooibos tea grows (more healthy than ...
