I am an urban geography lecturer at Rhodes University in Grahamstown, South Africa. I enjoy travel off the beaten track and love to immerse myself in the local history and daily life in any space that I visit. I have a strange interest in perusing grocery stores in different cities. Not a big fan of hotel chains and guidebooks. Love my space in Grahamstown and really want to share it with others who want to explore the city and have an appreciation for historical architecture and beautiful spaces.
