the dudes in my family went on a big bad bike trip this past weekend. they had several burst tyres when going through the tankwa karoo. so if you ever decide to do that… take lots of spares. i wish you could take a train right through the karoo – i would LOVE that! and i don’t mean the typical blue train route… more off the beaten track. kind of impossible to take a train to Die Hel though.
i caught an old jonathon ross interview of ewan mcgregor this weekend (swoon), but was astounded to see that he had attached his name to a manly man fragrance – and actually went as far as making this ridiculously cheesy advert for it:
now, i love ewan mcgregor and i love bikers & people who go on adventures AND i love men who smell nice and wear leather jackets, but…. come on! super cheese. though i must admit i watched the ad a couple of times (i’m only a woman)
he does look pretty cool though, eh? yes the scarf is a bit gay… plus, what kind of biker wears cologne?
anyway, invariably i found this, which made me feel better:
the scent of adventure in the air…. haha.
i’m been watching too much orange country choppers on discovery, but bikers usually have pretty good beards – which i appreciate.
