New Blog Of The Week - #5 - Escape Gauteng

Following on from my post about the Pilanesberg Game Reserve, I have decided to award this week's "New Blog Of The Week" to Scapeout. The intention of this blog is to give those of us who live in Gauteng information about breaks away from the city which will refresh and recharge.

The writing style is informal and makes for easy reading. The personal anecdotes from each place remind the reader that these are personal recommendations not just a list from a tour guide.

There are plenty of pictures to give the reader a sense of the place reviewed. A very helpful feature is the box giving travel directions to the attraction.

I would love to see this idea being expanded into other cities around South Africa. Any takers?...

Thank you very much for this nomination. It is quite an honor.

As of this week I've started a new feature on Scapeout called Impressions. This is basically my photographic impressions of the place where I live / work / play ie places in the Gauteng region that I found beautiful. Hopefully I can give a unique view of Johannesburg that people don't necessarily recognize as the 'Big City'.

These photos are available as Desktop backgrounds which you can use.

I hope everybody enjoy them.
