Spending Some Time in Durban

It has been ages since I posted an update so while I am on Holiday over the Easter period I thought it would make sense. I have spent time in Durban before and it is always a good place to have some fun. One of the reasons it appeals to me is the almost perfect weather right throughout the year, visiting in Jan or Feb can be a bit hot if you are not used to the humidity!

I have been staying with an old friend of mine Gordon De Beer, he is an attorney and if you need any legal help then you can visit his website here to find out more. Gordon has been around for many years and comes highly recommended!

One of the best things to do in Durban is to spend time at the beach. During the world cup in 2010 the entire area was revamped and you can walk from Ushaka marine world right through to the Umgeni bird park. A return trip is almost 20km so it is a great workout! If you are not into walking or running then take your bicycle down, it is a fabulous ride.

BeachfrontThere are a couple of decent shopping centers in the area and I plan to head on down to Gateway in Umhlanaga later in the week. This is by far the biggest and you will find all the major shops there. The place is filled with restaurants making it very simple to choose any type of food you fancy. If you ever make it down to this part of the world then you simply must make the time to visit. If you have kids then you can always watch a movie or take them on the go karts (behind the movies).

I also plan to spend a day at the Dam. I have an old work colleague who spends most of his weekends boating. With a bunch of skis and tubes and a good old fashioned braai it should be a good day out. Last time I went out with them I needed a day to recover, its amazing how many unused muscles you find after a day out skiing!

I will heading back to JHB on Tuesday, this weekend also features a public holiday so it makes sense to stay down here while I have the chance.
