Sea and Safari Peace and Solitude Just off the Garden Route Off the Beaten Track The Wild Coast

Once in a while I come across a destination that refuses to be pigeon-holed into a boutique of experiences but it would be wrong of me not to include them, just because I can't group them geographically.

All of them struck a chord with me. Maybe because each was different. Maybe because each told a story or fulfilled a dream or simply allowed me to live somebody else's - if only for a short time.

Whatever, each reminded me of that phrase: "Tread carefully because you tread upon my heart"
