If you say Facebook is not a great social network media-then i beg to differ!

To take this story very far back: Since forever I really  wanted to fly with …. well, basically anything with wings! (For my bday last year I went skydiving!) About 3 years ago I even made a little ad to put up at the Stellenbosch Flying Club saying that I would do a portfolio for anybody who is willing to take me flying. Nothing came of it. But I knew that one day (and hopefully even more in the future) I will have my chance.

A few weeks ago, a photography friend, Wil Punt, said something on Facebook about the fact that he went flying over Stellenbosch. I mentioned that I rrrreally want to fly too and that Im glad he had the chance. THEN! A message from another facebook-friend who invited me to go fly with her and her dad near Johannesburg if I ever happened to be in the area. It so “happend” that I was on my way to Joburg that specific weekend for Rousseau and Lana’s wedding! I was so over the moon that it worked out!

Schantel is an awesome photographer and you should definitely head over to her blog. Her dad (Johannes) and herself went out of their way accommodate me and spoil me with lots of awesomness. They are the kind of people who give with their whole heart and I can only pray that they get back in ten-fold what they so freely give away.

If you ever need “door-to-door service for consignments of various sizes by road”, please do go to their Brookfield Courier website and contact them!

Here are some from our trip:
