Travelstart got Moe and I looking through our childhood pictures reminiscing on the days when we use to be free of phones, iPads and laptop’s and life was simple. When we used sticks as swords, played in the mud and sometimes played T.V games which we weren’t allowed to play for too long as our parents use to shout at us telling us that it will damage the T.V lol.

Our Best Memories As A Kid

My best memories as a kid is playing outside pretending to cook with leaves and mud, climbing trees and playing cricket on the road with my cousins and all the kids in the neighborhood. I remember hearing all the kids in the neighbourhood playing outside early in the morning and if I wasn’t there I would get such FOMO. We didn’t have cricket bats, wickets and balls instead we used a plank for a bat, a tomato crate as wickets and a tennis ball and everytime a car would come we all had to run off the street taking everything with us then set up again till the next car comes. It was a lot of fun and we all had to be home when the street lights came on or else we would get into a lot of trouble and won’t be allowed to play outside the next day. Bee




The best childhood memories for me would definitely be the trips to visit my aunt in Durban. Taking the Greyhound to Durban as a kid use to be scary but fun. My aunt use to stay in Marine Parade, back then Marine Parade was the hub and safest place to be in Durban. My cousins and I use to wake up early and get ready to go to the beach. Always getting shouted at to have breakfast before we go out. I remember looking through the 6th floor windows sitting on the ledge and watching the waves and hearing them crash, anxiously waiting to get to the beach. Getting to the beach was an adventure with our boogie boards and buckets to make sand castles, walking through the back alleys of Addington Hospital and the hotel developments and finally getting to the beach spending hours upon hours of building sandcastles, digging shallow holes, playing with our Biker Mice From Mars figurines and just enjoying the sea and sun.
