Just as a reference point I just made my 1,700th post on this blog right here on this wine. I started this blog in July 2010 as an answer to a request from a few friends who wanted the details of my trip to South Africa for the 2010 World Cup. I felt a blog format was the easiest way to chronicle those travels over a 17 day period. My passions in life have always been travel, wine and food. Three things that go so beautifully together. Thus the story behind this blog.
So many blogs come and go. Most I followed when I started blogging have long since gone dark. I hope to carry the torch for many years to come.
