Going Nowhere Slowly
Do you remember the travel-orientated television series that achieved popular regard for following several off-beat travellers as they embarked on an endless road trip across South Africa and beyond in an old-school convertible American muscle car?
The show was successful in capturing the euphoria of letting your hair down, wearing a tank top, shorts and flip-flops and driving top-down through a total of 150 000 km. Along the way, the crew members encounter numerous challenges, such as running out of fuel, falling out of moving cars, incurring random injuries and experimenting with new weather elements, food, and varying cultures.
Comparing South Africa in 2005 to now, times have changed and the level of crime has increased. It is not possible for one to go on such a journey with friends and family now – we face muggings, break-ins, petty theft, hijackings, murders and other acts of grievous violence. Exercising caution and practising constant safety checks has become ingrained in the South African lifestyle, which must also be kept as private as possible for safety measures.
