    Blockhouses of the Anglo-Boer War with Simon Green

    We have a chat with Simon Green - "The Blockhouse Guy". Simon has authored two books on the blockhouses of the Anglo-Boer War - a very handy field guide, as well as a more in-depth analysis of the engineering behind these 9000+ structures the British Military left behind in South Africa.

    We have digitised the field guide - so if you are looking to visit a Blockhouse - the Road Trip app will get you there.

    The N2 Highway - Part 1 - We cover Cape Town to the Great Brak River

    The N2 Highway - Part 1 - We cover Cape Town to the Great Brak River

    This episode covers the first part of the N2, which is South Africa's longest numbered road. The N2 is 2255km long, and stretches from Cape Town to Ermelo.

    It starts in Mowbray near the historic Mostert's Mill, skirts the southern end of Cape Town International and then heads over Sir Lowry's Pass into the Overberg Region.

    The Overberg - wheat fields, bright yellow canola flowers and hectares of fruit - apples, pears, and peaches. Small towns en-route include the historical Swellendam which is South Africa's third oldest town.

    Some interesting spots to see includes an Apple Museum in Elgin, and a unique spot in Hartenbos - a Washing Machine, Iron and Laundry museum!

    The N2 Highway - Part 2 - The Garden Route - George to Tsitsikamma

    The N2 Highway - Part 2 - The Garden Route - George to Tsitsikamma

    The "Garden Route" encompasses the area between George and Port Elizabeth. It is a natural wonderland of high mountain peaks, deep forested ravines, and incredible coastal scenery.

    The area has a rich history of gold miners, woodcutters, British adventurers, and colourful characters. It is worth getting off the N2 and taking some time to really explore this area. The person who takes some time to really meander through this area will be very richly rewarded.

    The N2 Highway - Part 3 - Tsitsikamma to East London

    The N2 Highway - Part 3 - Tsitsikamma to East London

    You leave the deeply forested and mountainous areas, and head into "Frontier" or "Settler" country. Port Elizabeth saw the arrival of the 1820 settlers, and the area between there and East London has a rich history of settlers - 5000 British immigrants arrived to settle and stabilise the area - torn by 100 years of unrest and warfare.
