We’ve had some amazing First Friday Wild Posts, but when David Lee, Editor of GoBackpacking.com, showed us these shots of South Africa, we were literally blown away!
David blogged his way around the world on Go Backpacking from 2007, all the way through to 2009. When not writing, he can be found salsa dancing in Medellin, Colombia. Yes David, we like your style, and with photography like that we'd also like to borrow your camera! Any chance...? Follow David on Twitter @rtwdave
