Just me ! – Janine Thomas


Hi, my name is Janine and I am a wine swilling 50 something South African foodie who loves travelling.

Now that the introductions are out of the way you may ask what’s this about?

I have been travelling since long haul flying meant a stop somewhere in the middle of the night to refuel! Who remembers that? Flying from way down south the stopping point was usually  Ilha do Sal. That’s where the bug bit, in the middle of the night, a hot desert wind blowing and all the excitement of next stop London.

This is essentially a travel blog, with loads of photographs of my adventures around the world. I must stress I am NOT a photographer so these are really just the kind of pics anyone would take on their holidays. I hope you enjoy reading my posts as much as I have enjoyed visiting the places I write about.


  Travel is more than the seeing of sights, it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of the living

Life’s too short to dream about travelling. Get inspired and start travelling!
