New Year in Durban

The "gay bash" of the year is happening at The Lounge, Durban's only gay bar and club this Monday 31st December 2013.
Click on the link here to The Lounge website and events, or here for their Facebook group.
There's something happening most nights, so Durbs is the place to be... where the locals and visitors play.
And of course Durban View Guesthouse is busy, in fact fully booked past New Year, so whether you're on the rooftop catching a tan or in the jacuzzi or chatting around the social table or pub downstairs... this is where the action is.

Christmas holidays

Christmas is upon us and it's time for a break from work, some family fun and a guesthouse full of guests. Awesome. Today my son and his mate Dain took a drive to the nearby Kloof gorge and spent the morning sliding down slippery rocks into swirling pools and climbing mountains in the roasting heat. Amazing day with the boys!

We went cruising the Med..

Our 2nd port of call, VillaFranche, from where we caught a train to nearby Monte Carlo to see South Africa and Monaco's Princess Charlene. 
We were cruising on board the Liberty of the Seas, our third Royal Caribbean trip

Dave catches the tender to the shore

Changing of the guard at the royal palace Monaco

Dave and Llewellyn at the Ponte Vechio, Florence

Leaning in for a pic with the famous tower of Pisa

There were hoards of people at the Trevi Fountains.. such gorgeous Italian guys too!!

We wuz here too

This way for some action in Pompei were we went romping

No shame in putting their pride and joy on open display

Llewellyn was wondering why there were no yummy guys in the Pompei jacuzzi... reminding him of home at the guesthouse

Guesthouse co-owner Llewellyn owns 2 SpecSavers optometry practices in Durban and every 2 years the franchised group treats their optometrists to an all-expenses paid conference - this time cruising the Mediterranean for a week from Barcelona, Spain, to Toulon and VillaFranche, France, then Florence, Rome and Naples, Italy before returning to Barcelona.
We had an awesome time crusing and were intrigued by the sex and phallic symbols in Pompei.. mmm, they knew what men wanted for sure, thousands of years ago. Plenty of signs of m2n sex too!
Thanks Ian for looking after the guesthouse and our guests while we had a short break; now we're back to welcome you to Durban. We really do compare well here with our standard of accommodation and certainly the weather compared to europe... and the hot surfer dudes ha ha.
