A change is as good as a holiday.A new look for "Travel & Things".

A NEW LOOK FOR TRAVEL & THINGS...

In order to make access to the published postings quicker and simpler,
I have reviewed the headings...
Hopefully this will make the site more user friendly
and destination specific.

http://www.davidbatzofin.com/search/label/My%20point%20of%20view
This is a brand new category and one that give me the opportunity
to express myself on certain topics.
No "ranting", merely observational

SA Blog Awards Badge
http://www.davidbatzofin.com/search/label/Travel%20%26%20Things%20Awards
I am very proud of the awards that the Blog has won to date

http://www.davidbatzofin.com/search/label/Airlines%20and%20airports
Most travelers try to spend as little time in the air,
or in airports.
Unless you have access to a business class lounge or seat.
http://www.davidbatzofin.com/search/label/Radio%20Today
Find out who have been guests on my "Travel & Things"
radio show

http://www.davidbatzofin.com/search/label/Radio%20Today%20podcasts
I have seperated the podcasts from the guest lists.
Here you can catch up on shows that you might have missed,
or want to listen to again
http://19817.podomatic.com/entry/2015-10-24T21_58_16-07_00
This is one of the recent podcasts.

http://www.davidbatzofin.com/search/label/Restaurants
I do not take images of EVERY meal that I eat.
But the special ones are published here.

http://www.davidbatzofin.com/search/label/roadtrips
In 2009, I an my daughter did a roadtrip to Cape Town.
It took us 9 days to get there from Johannesburg
and we enjoyed every minute!
It is something I highly recommend that every parent experience

http://www.davidbatzofin.com/search/label/Spa%20destinations
I do enjoy being at a Spa, some are better than others.
You can read my opinions here

http://www.davidbatzofin.com/search/label/david%20batzofin%20photography
This covers a wide variety of subjects,
that I enjoy "shooting"

http://www.davidbatzofin.com/search/label/Game%20Lodges
I started going to the bush in 1966 and I am happiest there.
I have been extremely lucky when it comes to my lodge visits
and these are the highlights

http://www.davidbatzofin.com/search/label/Kruger%20National%20Park
My evry first bush experience was at this iconic reserve.
And, if you choose your accommodation correctly,
it is STILL an exciting destination


http://www.davidbatzofin.com/search/label/Madikwe
My all time FAVOURITE game Reserve.
Closer to Johannesburg than Kruger,
it offers the "Big 5" as well as Wild Dog and Cheetah

http://www.davidbatzofin.com/search/label/Botswana%2FChobe
This area is probably the most exciting game viewing area
in Southern Africa.

http://www.davidbatzofin.com/search/label/birdlife
I am in awe of bird photographers.
They need the patience of Job and
BIG lenses...neither of which I posess


http://www.davidbatzofin.com/search/label/wildlife
Not all wild life has to have teeth and claws.
I find baboons MOST entertaining


http://www.davidbatzofin.com/search/label/Western%20Cape
As my daughter currently lives in Cape Town,
I try to visit regularly...

http://www.davidbatzofin.com/search/label/Eastern%20Cape
This is my home province.
It is underrated as a tourist destination,
but offers great beach and bush opportunities.
Not to mention the historical angle

http://www.davidbatzofin.com/search/label/Kwa%20Zulu%20Natal
KZN is probably the richest province from a historical perspective.
It is also home to the Midlands Meander

http://www.davidbatzofin.com/search/label/North%20West%20Province
I have only visited this area once,
but I was taken aback by what it has to offer the adventure tourist

http://www.davidbatzofin.com/search/label/Magaliesberg%20destinations
If you live in either Pretoria or Johannesburg,
then this area is a "must visit" destination.

http://www.davidbatzofin.com/search/label/Gauteng
The province in which I currently reside.
Even though it does not have an ocean, there is plenty to see and do

http://www.davidbatzofin.com/search/label/Linden
My suburb...that I love living in.
It is like "small town" South Africa...
but surrounded by a big city!

http://www.davidbatzofin.com/search/label/Andy%27s%20Acoustic%20Forum
If you like acoustic music and live in Johannesburg,
then this is the place to be on the last Wednesday of every month

http://www.davidbatzofin.com/search/label/African%20destinations
Although I enjoy overseas travel,
I love visiting countries on our continent.

http://www.davidbatzofin.com/search/label/Insight%20Vacations%20Coach%20Tour
Never done a coach tour before?
Have a look at my experiences

http://www.davidbatzofin.com/search/label/International%20travel%20destinations
Our overseas travel has included many "bucket list" destinations.

http://www.davidbatzofin.com/search/label/Cruises%20International
I cannot begin to describe how much I enjoy cruising.
Read of my experiences here

http://www.davidbatzofin.com/search/label/Kilimanjaro%202006.
I stood on the top of this mountain in 2006...

http://www.davidbatzofin.com/search/label/Kilimanjaro%202014
I did it again in 2014.
Both times to raise awareness for certain causes
Would I return again?
Watch this space...

http://www.davidbatzofin.com/search/label/Mauritius
This is the first of the Islands I have visited.
Timing here is everything, so that you are not overrun by families
with small children

http://www.davidbatzofin.com/search/label/Mozambique
Not quite an "island" venue, but you stay on the mainland
or visit one of the many islands.
I have done both

http://www.davidbatzofin.com/search/label/Zanzibar
An all time favourite island destination.
So much to see and do here.

I do hope that you like the new "easy access",
and that you will visit often.
