Yesterday while waiting for Jandre to pick me up on the side of the Koeel bay mountain pass, I watched cars pass, heard the birds singing and overheard an old man sitting in his old Mazda bakkie speaking to someone over the phone. It made me think about all of the people out there stuck in the corporate world, living the same routine day in and day out wishing 5 days out of the 7 day week away for the 2 day weekends. I for one do not want to ever be caught up in this corporate world but it seems there are few ways out. I don't want to work. I want to travel, explore, and learn about different cultures. Not work for 90% of the year for 3 weeks leave. That's not how I want to spend my life.
Here is a photo I took while up the west coast earlier this holiday, the tent we lived in for a week. Not luxury, not the most comfortable either, but definately better than a 9-5 office job.
