People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day. And doing nothing often leads to the very best kind of something.

The following are just a couple of pics taken during my recent trip (May 2012) through the country.  Hope you enjoy it as much as I did taking them  :ricky:

Just a random pic of my riding buddy Rudy ‘posing’ behind my bike somewhere close to Tankwa Padstal.  Really like the colorfulness.  (Toemaar Rudy, ek weet jy's eintlik n KTM Killer :imaposer:)




Nice photos, thanks for sharing! Also, I think I know Rudy... he lives on a farm outside Paarl/Wellington if I'm not mistaken?  :thumleft:

One of those exceptional people in life worth meeting!!

There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep Sea, and music in its roar:
I love not Man the less, but Nature more"
