SinderFella is the hilarious and entertaining adult pantomime with all of our favourite Durban drag artists in top gear this year.
Durban View Guesthouse made up a table of 10 and we all laughed so much, it really was a fun evening and one of the best of the adult pantos which see their 16th year in Durban over the festive season.
Tickets are R150 and can be booked through the link here. Be sure not to miss out on Anthony Stonier and Thomie Holthausen's best show ever.

1 December, 10 years anniversary, 100 years combined age, we were married today in the Bay of Islands, New Zealand - Dave and Llewellyn, owners of Durban View Guesthouse.
What an awesome day and special memories as we traveled so far to tie the knot in terms of the New Zealand legislation as well as a marriage in terms of our own South African Civil Union Act, 2006 in this beautiful spot at Paihia in the Bay of Islands, North island, New Zealand.
|The seagulls are chasing the rose petals we threw into the water, them hoping they were something tasty to eat... Dave and Llewellyn|
|Michael, the New Zealand Marriage Celebrant officiated at the ceremony|
|The deed is done and we are married on the rocks as the tide came in - hopefully the marriage will not be "on the rocks". The colour of the jeans are "coral" for those inquisitive.|
|Llewellyn with the Marriage Celebrant Michael and our two witnesses Jess, one of the first same-sex couples to marry when New Zealand legislation allowed it two years ago and Steven.|
|Mr and Mr|
|Our kids and family were with us in spirit and remembered on the beach|

|We opened some local New Zealand bubbly to celebrate|
|After changing we took the ferry across to the other side of the mainland to the town of Russell for some time on the beach and lunch|
|On the Russell pier|
|The beach at Russell.. the sky was partly cloudy and the water was freezing, but we braved it on our wedding day|
|Catching bits of sunshine|
|This electric chair was outside someone's home|
|After catching the ferry back we took a drive to the nearby Haruru Falls|
|This was 8.30pm walking to the fabulous restaurant we found the day before and to have dinner on our wedding night|
|The beef steak was fantastic.. just the NZ prices had us reeling in anguish - 3 times the prices of home|
|Wedding night dinner at Alfresco's, Paihia, Bay of Islands.. the end to a perfect day!|

My gym guru buddy Chris had some fun in the Durban Skyye with me this week as I showed him the difference between asphalt landings and grass landings in Llew and my Sling aircraft ZDL. Afterwards we fooled around looking at some "permanent" body wings...

|Ulf also wanted to see Durban from a bird's point of view, so he took to the Durban Skyye in a microlight, flying along the scenic Durban beachfront the the Harbour and back to the lighthouse..|

Guest Travs takes to the air with pilot Dave, co-owner of the Guesthouse in his Sling aircraft along the Durban beachfront. Definitely the best way to see Durban. Dave is also the co-owner of Durban Skyye Flight School which offers microlight and fixed wing flights from Virginia Airport, down the road from the guesthouse.
