When visiting a new country there are always 'must have' foods worth trying. In South Africa one of these items is Biltong. Most similar to 'beef jerky' it has a special curing and processing that sets it apart from other forms of dried meat. Come find out if we enjoyed it (or not) as we munch away piece by piece from a brown paper bag outside:

While basing ourselves in Northern Drakensberg for several days we stayed on a lovely property (Amphitheatre backpackers) that branched off to an airstrip, river and isolated tree. After spending a bit of time in Johannesburg it was the perfect scenic retreat. These days I'm starting to feel more in touch with my roots and quiet remote areas are more appealing to me than sprawling cities.

We're over the moon thrilled when our YouTube fans suggest local cuisine to try when we're traveling. In this video, we received your suggestions for Peruvian dessert puddings and we went out and bought all of them at Wong's supermarket to try. The three items were Purple corn pudding, rice pudding and sweet potato puree known locally as Mazamorra Morada, Arroz Con Leche & Puré De Kamote. Let's explore these Peruvian puddings together!

With mere hours ticking down on our time in Lima, Peru we scrambled to try a few more Peruvian desserts. For this particular taste test, we tried King Kong! Say, what? King Kong, consisting of three layers of hard cookies filled with manjar blanco, pineapple jam and peanut spread, is one behemoth of a dessert. Originating from Lambayeque and mass produced by companies such as San Roque it typically comes in a 1.5 kilogram brick. Come find out our review of this unique treat by clicking play:

While traveling in South Africa the pace of our trip has been unusually hectic. With such as short amount of time (3 weeks) to cover a large amount of territory we've often only been spending a night or two in each place we visit. To help slow down the pace a little bit we visited the Wild Coast - specifically Lubanzi. With nothing but rolling hills, coastal views and a laid back pace of life we had ample time to relax and recover. This video shows our hike around the rural areas including visiting 'The Hole In The Wall' and a home of a local.

Day two of our wildlife safari started off before sunrise, like the previous day, with us driving out to Kruger National Park on an entirely different route.

Our mission for this outing was to focus on animals that tend to converge near watering holes; however, on the drive over the first animal we spotted was the ever elusive leopard. It literally walked right out in front of our Land Rover, and our guide Lloyd was even more excited than us.

As the day progressed we witnessed plenty of fascinating events at random watering holes. Impalas, wildebeests and buffalo drinking with crocodiles lurking dangerously submerged under the water. In another section Hippos lazily bathing in mud and a monitor lizard slinking across a barren stretch of land.

It was another very eventful safari and we ended up spotting all of 'The Big 5' with mere minutes left on tour with an intimate encounter with a Rhino to close things off:

When the opportunity came to hike up one of the most impressive cliff faces on earth we seized the opportunity. The Amphitheatre, an impressive geographical feature of Northern Drakensberg, dwarfs Yosemite's famous El Capitan by being more than ten times its size!

The 5-6 hour hike (including return trip) would be classified as lower-intermediate from my point of view. Many parts of the hike are beginner level; however, certain aspects including parts of the path not being well-defined, having to ascend and/or descent 21 meter chain ladders and a few rougher patches add a layer of challenge. We made it as far as the chain ladders before our 'fear of heights' rendered us having a quiet lunch while the rest of the group continued on.

Had we made it to the top we would have been able to witness the magnificent Tugela Falls.

Sometimes it is good to push through your comfort zone; however, it is equally important to realize when something just isn't a good fit. In the end we were content we stopped where we did:

In our latest travel/food video from Lima, Peru we take you into the kitchen of a Peruvian home in Lima, Peru to show you how to make a Pisco Sour. The recipe comes from Audrey's Uncle Coco, who offers a few unique twists that make it his very own. We show you step by step how to make it from scratch using Pisco, sour, bitter and egg white. Come join us for this refreshing beverage!

We spent the better part of our time in Peru gorging on food during our teaching practicum. When we did have a chance to venture off for the weekend, one of our favorite things was visiting the Ballestas Islands where we had a chance to spot penguins, seals and birds thrusting through the water in a tourist speed-boat. Nicknamed by some "The Galapagos Islands of Peru" that's likely more than a little bit of a stretch; however, considering this is just a short half-day trip it could be an alternative for those who don't want to fork-out the big bucks to see the real deal:
