This edition is about celebrating summer! 

Domestic tourism is important for any destination, as is the support of local travel businesses – from accommodation and eating out, to fun activities and shopping. Durban and KwaZulu-Natal have traditionally been a summer holidays destination for many South Africans – check out the list of ‘40 fabulously fun things to do in KZN’. Not made any holiday plans yet? Or planning a South African vacation a little later in the summer?   Then check out our ‘Top Tips’ for some ideas, and some great advice to keep you safe when travelling. 

I had the pleasure of spending some time in the Overberg region, at the Great White House in Kleinbaai – home to Great White Shark cage diving. It’s easy to make good choices here with a number of Fair Trade Tourism certified businesses to choose fro, wonderful outdoor activities and an abundance of locally grown produce and wines. But ultimately the responsibility of being a responsible traveller lies with the person travelling and the choices they make. It’s about choosing to not waste water, to switch off when you leave the room, to stay, shop, eat local (in preference to international chains)… thereby providing employment and contributing to the local economy. By choosing to have conversations with locals and interacting with communities – adding great ‘value’ to both. 

As we celebrate the Christmas season with family and friends, let us be mindful of those that are less fortunate than we are… especially when we are in that ‘holiday mode’ – let the words “consider one another” become words to live by both in this festive season and into 2015. 

Wishing you all a fabulously blessed Christmas and a 2015 that exceeds all expectations! 

Enjoy the read… and be the difference.
