Where am I?

Created this blog to document my travels, experiences & thoughts thru Central & South America but hell plan to blog my travels to where ever. Goofy harmless Free Spirit hoping to spend most of my time with locals & enjoy the world! So hang on as I travel, drink cervezas, raise a little hell, maybe piss off a few people & hopefully not give Canadians a bad reputation! Of course don't do these things on purpose but while having a good time well "Shit Happens"!

Did the least adventurist thing that usually do as took the slack ass Baz Bus down the coast to Western Cape towards Cape Town! But only got part of the way!! Nov 2013

So left from Durban and got as far as this cross roads where the Baz Bus let us off there on the Wild Coast. Then a shuttle bus gave us a ride to Coffee Bay which took a hour however we still got there later the same day!! So got to Coffee Bay around 530 pm and to have the steak for dinner which was cool even if don't usually eat steak! Cuz with the cost of the place, meals were included cuz fuk there weren't any other places to eat around there!I was thinking more about having some thing to eat and get a bed as was quite crowded! 

They were also having a Full Moon Party around sunset when they climbed a hill as the sun was setting in the west and Coffee Bay faced east towards the ocean! So by the time I got up the him the free shots and food tho was mostly eaten but no problem as not big on drinking and had already pigged out on the free steak dinner which was why was late or wud have been up there earlier cuz don't like to miss out on free food! 


The Coffee Bay Backpackers Guest House kinda reminded me of a kid's summer camp as there were set times to eat! Mainly cuz there weren't any resturants close by to eat as cudn't cook own meals unless U had a vehicle to go to closest town to get groceries! There was a typical African store close to the Guest House but dislike shopping at places where U had to order what U want thru a cubby hole! The Guesthouse also had daily activities set to do like a summer camp (what a fuking joke) as preferred to watch S.African rugby on TV!!! aso hung out around the Guesthouse on a hammock most days! However one day did go on a trip to the Hole in the Wall at a place on the ocean! But the wind was howling so we didn't get that far but did check out and did some jumping into the water in another place! Then I walked back to the Guesthouse by myself as wanted to check out Coffee Bay! So walked to a couple of the other Guest Houses to check them out! Kinda thought the Bomvu Guest House was cool and not so crowded as it had tents for dorms! Was thinking of moving there but thought shit thought 5 days was enuf time in Coffee Bay as wasn't that impressed!

Also one day went to another guesthouse to the bar with the 2 American guys met in Durban went to bar next door with 2 American guys met in Durban (Andy & Josh)! A lot of people talk up Coffee Bay but shit wasn't impressed as thought hell it was like staying at a summer cam or being on a tour bus as was too touristy for me as like to do my own thing!

So after doing as much damage that cud in Coffee Bay! Well got on the brain less Baz Buz aka tourist bus as the bus picks U up and drops U off at the guesthouse of Ur choice (a fukin no brainer but most efficient way as Baz Bus is setup for independent idiot travellers like me even if more expen$ive than other buses but dont have to keep buying tkts, finding where the bus leaves from as most places dont have bus stations or fixed schedules so just wait for them to pick me up from my guesthouse & also dont have to get taxis to remote guesthouses, etc)! Didnt want to make plan but sort of happened unfortunately!!!
So got on the bus as my next stop was Cintsa! 

Stayed at the Buccaneers Guesthouse as seemed the only place to stay around there! http://www.cintsa.com However my first impression as thought the place wasn't that much better than the Coffee Bay Backpackers Guesthouse! But at least wasn't a kid's summer camp but an adult one! lol  Cuz they didn't have activities organized to do during the day as people cud their own thing or just chill! What was cool was the Baz Bus driver was also staying there as he had driven down from Durban and it was the end of his run!! He liked to drink in the bar attached to the Guesthouse so I hung out there too! What was also cool was he had some weed which got from him! Then got to know the bartender as he was also a cool dude!


Walked down to the beach a few times even tho it was very windy! There was this sort of town a bit down the beach so went there a few times and met a Rasta dude! So ended up hanging out there with him and even bought an African chair from him plus a bit of weed! Also there were a couple stores near so was able to make some meals for myself as was cheaper! Also bought a bottle of Captain Morgan Spice rum as didn't like drinking beer as got too bloated! Shit didn't want to drink my own rum in the bar so left the bottle outside as just poured my own drinks with mix! But fuk came out to refill my drink and some asshole had stolen my bottle! LOL

Anyway tho liked Cintsa way better than Coffee Bay however decided to leave there after a couple days!!
The Baz Bus going south (coming from Durban) stopped in Port Elizabeth where pax had to stay the night! Then the next day we could catch a bus as I got off in Knysna for a short stay to check out the Rasta Village there to of course score some weed! lol https://www.google.ca/search?q=knysna+south+africa&espv=2&biw=1218&bih=659&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=zL5eVLLFJ9HSoASNmoHoCw&ved=0CCgQsAQ

But just stayed a couple nights there as met a couple of cool Africaan chicks from Bloemfontein in land in S. Africa! Went to the local bar with them however found even tho it was busy it seemed to be a high school get together! Also met another S. African colored dude from Capetown who claimed he was about to start his law career but as always hitched around the country before starting work! We got along so hung with him and went to the restuarant where he worked for a meal to support him! We also went to the Rasta Village together! Then the next day was told that he had taken a customers credit card and charged something on it! I was kind of surprised as thought he was cool and honest! As I had left my ipod with him to listen to music and told him to leave it at the desk at the Guest house which he did! 
Walked around Knysna as a nice town but didn't have much character! 

So the next day decided to hitch hike to Wilderness (a cool little village down the coast in Western Cape) my next stop bcuz cudn't be bother to wait for the Baz Bus as it didn't run come every day! Was cool hitching as had no trouble getting a ride to Wilderness!
