    Default Itchy Boots

    Don't know if any of you are aware of Itchy Boots. She is a Dutch woman traveling by motorbike around various countries (a bit tricky because of covid and she had to interrupt her Americas trip). She is currently just into (about 6-7 episodes so far) a trip around South Africa. She typically rides for a day then stops an extra day to edit and post so posts about every 2-3 days. Typically posts are about 3-7 days behind in real time so she is there now. I am seeing more of the 'real' South Africa than any other video I watch. She also takes the dirt road rather than sealed roads if the dirt road will take her the same place. Since this is your country I thought some of you might be interested. Her name is Noraly and you could find her by youtubing the title.

    Had the pleasure of a long chat with her on Gannaga Pass last week.
    Tough lady, but really friendly.

    I love her videos. Great outsider's view of SA and she just has such cool energy.

    We are following her channel when I by accident was looking for similar content on Youtube and followed her since she left the Netherland for the RSA. I do not know the areas of the first episodes so cannot comment but her Baviaans, Oudtshoorn part was very rushed. Seems like she has a train to catch or get info from the normal tourist sources and thus follow only the most obvious e.g. Cango Caves, The Hell etc. as she has missed a heck of a lot of very interesting gravel roads as well as things to see here in the Southern Cape/Klein Karoo area. I left her a couple of pointers on her videos and email but no response, she sped through this amazing area. I suppose that will be so for the rest of the country too.

    Cobus, by now you should know that you can't tell a Dutch man/women what to do
