getaway

karoo

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.

the smell of ad-venture

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.

choppers

i’m been watching too much orange country choppers on discovery,  but bikers usually have pretty good beards – which i appreciate.
