So, who is on another plane?
Well, that would be me; Richard Holmes, a travel and lifestyle journalist based in Cape Town, South Africa. I say based because my assignments take me far and wide on a regular basis, from cruising the Danube to downing dim sum in the backstreets of Hong Kong. On another plane? Well, it could also have been onanotherboat, bus or horse 'n cart, but given the amount of airline food I subject myself to this seemed like the ideal address for my online portfolio of writing and photography.
At the moment my time (when not on planes!) is split between editing the travel section of iafrica.com and writing for a range of consumer and trade publications in South Africa and abroad. iafrica.com is one of the largest internet portals in South Africa and, dating back to 1997, one of the most respected brands on the South African online landscape. Offline, I contribute regularly for publications such as the Sunday Times Travel & Food, Saturday Star Travel, Get Lost (Australia), Longevity, Horizons, Mango Juice, Food&Home Entertaining, EatIn, Explore SA, Sawubona, Indwe, Mango Juice, Signature, AA Traveller, Garden & Home, Time Out, Out There Travel, Diversions, travelideas and Travel Industry Review. I am also a reviewer for EatOut, South Africa's premier restaurant guide, and a regular correspondent for 'Time to Travel' which is broadcast weekly on national radio station SAfm.
On the site you'll find a selection of articles, galleries, travel news and general musings on destinations across South Africa and the globe. You can see a selection of my work in the Travel or Food & Wine sections, but if you just want to want to find out what planes I've been on recently (and what I discovered on the other end) simply click through to the 'blog' to catch up on all my latest destinations, discoveries and diatribes.
