Woodstock in Cape Town, South Africa is filled with many pieces of street art that portray everyday life. Up on the side of the wall there’s a big piece of a handshake, called a Minor Refusal. It’s a twisted handshake where the man seems to be friendly, but at the same time he’s removing you out of your home. 

This is said to portray what is going on at the moment in Woodstock. Where locals are being pushed out, their places bought up as they cant afford to live here any longer. They are forced to move out of the city and end up having to commute for hours to their daily jobs.

I am addicted to travelling and have been exploring the world for nearly two decades. Here I share my travel stories and pictures so that you can share in some of the amazing experiences I have along the way. When you travel you experience the culture and get to know the people of a country. Once you step out of your comfortzone you get to know the real country and experience it in a different way than ordinary tourists. My camera usually accompanies me everywhere I go so you can "see" and read about my journeys.
