Go/Weg have have a certain way of putting or describing things that you don't find in Getaway. The writing is similar to that of the late Pieter Pieterse of 'Maak 'n Las' fame. He was also a very good cook. When he described a recipy he would put it like this "Dan vat jy die ingrediente en sit hulle saam in die pot solat hulle mekaar beter kan leer ken en 'n bietjie gesels" (Something like; You put the ingredients in a pot so that they can start to know each other and so that they can talk a bit) He said it in a typical West Coast dialect.

Like Super-Mongoose I subscribe to both on the iPad. I enjoy Go! for all the same reasons. I'm excited for the Getaway one to expire on Zinio as Getaway has now been added to the newsstand and should have a more interactive lay out. I will be subscribing to Getaway through their own app when my Zinio subscription expires. I do also like that Getaway is cheaper digitally than the print edition.

As with everyone else though, I do find that I would miss either of them if I wasn't getting them both monthly. We also buy Go! DriveOut when it interests us, and we would love to get Weg!Sleep in English. (SO's Afrikaans isn't sufficient for even reading magazines LOL.)

I also like Toast Coetzer's photography contributions. His critique of people's photography is always so encouraging. I get a sense of a man with no ego, just a genuine love for photography, people and nature.
