Wegbreek and Mooiloop is one and the same magazine. I wrote a bunch of travel articles for them and had the opportunity to take great travel photos. After a lengthy court case with an Afrikaans travel magazine with a similar title, and some politics about changing their name that I do not understand, they regretably folded. The time I spent writing for them was great. I learnt to surf, tracked Shaka Zulu's stomping ground, did back breaking hikes in the Drakensberg, fell in love with the Bushveld and spent time at a rodeo in California and saw Las Vegas.
I did these profiles of people and places for Mango Juice (in-flight magazine for Mango Airlines). Was great getting to know Barry Ronge, Nicky Greenwall, Zapiro, Xola Ntshinga, Gautrain CEO Jack van der Merwe, green architect Ken Stucke, Duncan Yard in Pretoria and 44Stanley in the heart of Joburg.
