June 2016: 11 stories in 9 publications

In this month’s business news, Nick Cairpis of BNC Technology talks about the future of home automation and career coach Ben Fanning offers alternatives to quitting your job. And in entertainment news, the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra presents its Winter Symphony Season, while WP Rugby is offering fans a chance to experience rugby games in style.

So why not raise a glass to Kleine Zalze as the Stellenbosch estate celebrates two decades of award-winning wine? And another one to the riel dancing troupes of Bushmans Kloof as they continue to win top awards on the international stage? Speaking of celebrations, Masood Sadulla of the 12 Apostles Hotel and Spa wins Concierge of the Year from Red Carnations Hotel, while Ryan Sandes is making his mark in trail runs and ultra-marathons across the globe.

And in other travel news, Daniel Adidwa of Tour2.0 is a firm believer that the growth in community tourism will benefit tourists and trade, while Aaron Yeboah Jr. is using photography to tell authentic African stories through African Lens. So no matter what you’re doing or where you are, take a minute to disconnect from technology and appreciate the outside world. One of my lessons learned from missing a train is that it’s far worse to be missing out on everything else.
