To travel, or not...?

One of South Africa’s most loved Afrikaans singers, Theuns Jordaan, sang in his song “Vingers en Voete(English: Fingers and Feet)

My fingers should feel they should not just touch. My feet have to wander otherwise I do not matter.

Theuns Jordaan

And then:

What are fingers and toes for? If we sit behind walls and never experience anything?

Theuns Jordaan

Theuns Jordaan continues further by questioning love if one is not prepared to get up and find it? If you get up and book the ticket to South Africa, you will find love. Its people, nature, wildlife, beaches – to name a few – are the culmination of love. 

Experience the excitement of South Africa. Your feet will take you to amazing places. At the end of the day, it’s all about dirty feet, messy hair, and sparkling eyes!
