About this site

Lani is the name given to our latest Landy and we hope to have many adventurous travels with her.

Charmain and I have been on quite a few ‘adventures’ but have never consolidated our travels in one place.

This will be an attempt to share it with all our friends and family as well as anybody that wants to follow our travels.

Not an easy task for someone starting out in website development. There may still be some small issues but overall it is a job well done. If anybody […]
