I’m a South African hiker who wants to climb as many mountains as possible. As St Augustine famously said “the world is a book, and those who don’t travel only read one page.”
My home mountain range is the Drakensberg in South Africa, but I try to travel abroad whenever possible.
The reason why I write and maintain this blog is that I intend to keep record of my many trips. Sometimes it is fun to read up on what you were doing five or twenty years ago. If someone finds some useful information on it, or finds my writeups interesting, even better!
I try to write as accurately as possible, but not every part of my trip will be documented in my writeup, and it is written after the fact, so certain aspects might be remembered differently by other team members. Naturally my writeups are told from my perspective, so events will be noted from my viewpoint. My grandfather always used to say “only a corpse is truly free of bias”
