Revisiting my youth

Recently while touring through Kwa-Zulu-Natal on a short visit to family and friends, we passed the turnoff to my old hometown, Dalton. Photographing from the back of the bike, I only managed to get the turnoff. (have you ever looked back while sitting on a fast-forward-moving motorbike? Tried it sometime! LOL) So, unfortunately the signpost is not visible in the shot. Although the road has changed since the sixties and seventies, I distinctly remember the feeling I always got when we turned off "home" from boarding school on our out weekends. "Yay! Almost there!"

Travelling between Pietermaritzburg and Greytown in Kwa-Zulu Natal, we passed the turnoff to my old hometown, Dalton

A trip to the past indeed! Well, past the past!

I hope you're all having a lovely weekend.


  1. I only would sit on a bike when it's standing ! To make a photo of me the hero ! I could never turn my had around I would rather strangle the driver !

  2. This is a great shot from a moving bike. How daring of you!

  3. One of my favorite things to do is to reflect on my childhood! I could feel your emotions as you wrote about the "turn-off" point which it seems you passed rather quickly.
