November 2018: 14 stories in 5 publications

From profiles to pizzas, the latest newsletter will get you in the festive mood!

This month’s inspiring interviews include profiles on Standard Bank Young Artist Beth Diane Armstrong about her latest exhibition, branding expert Buyi Mafoko about marketing in the digital age, and sports icon Travis Pastrana about his plans to open training centres around the world.

Closer to home, the Cape Town Travel Guide took inspiration from this year’s Eat Out Mercedes-Benz Restaurant Awards by featuring the best everyday eateries, the best fine dining restaurants, and the best pizzas in Cape Town. And to get you ready for summer, I’ve also recommended the best drinks for November, which are much easier to get than the special Robben Island wine made in honour of Nelson Mandela.

What else can you do to get ready for the holidays? Check out the best festive markets and events in the Cape or choose a meaningful gift with Book Dash. You can also start planning your trip with the likes of One Horizon or Radisson RED.

Need some inspiration to carry you through to the end of the year? Here’s what Günter Grass writes in The Tin Drum, our book recommendation for the month:

“As long as man hopes, he will go on turning out hopeful finales.” Keep your hope alive.
