Laptop Cricket Lifestyle

Laptop Cricket Lifestyle While Following The English Cricket Team Around South Africa The laptop cricket lifestyle continues, off to the airport into a jet WHOOSH. Off I go to watch the English Cricket team play against South Africa in their ODI and 2020 cricket series. Who am I? Mark Ford is an ex solicitor in the Magistrates Courts in the United Kingdom. Gone for a month, this English cricket fan! How can I disappear into the blue yonder and spend a month indulging my passion for cricket? Easy I live a Laptop Cricket Lifestyle owning a global internet business working with a team of friends and business colleagues. My laptop cricket lifestyle allows me the freedom to indulge my passion for the game of cricket and allows me to afford the luxury of travelling to many destinations around the world. Wherever I open my Laptop that is where my business is. THIS GIVES ME FREEDOM, not just hoping a boss will grant me leave to go and indulge my passion for a month. No 9 to 5 slog for me, no rush hour, no commute and definitely no same four walls. I can choose where my office is every day, my working hours and even better when I am not at work I am still working! A Laptop Cricket Lifestyle for me I say. You will have noticed in my following the South African Cricket tour in person that there was a break between matches well what did I do? Well here we go! A Laptop Cricket Lifestyle – Arriving In South Africa To Continue Mark Ford’s Cricket Tours With a screech of tyres on the runway we are here. South Africa a new destination for me but the English cricket team have been playing here since the 1800’s. So off to enjoy the fruits of my laptop cricket lifestyle. I’m here to watch the cricket matches and do business in between how brilliant is that? Well, what did I get to see? Lots! Having spare time between the matches enabled me to explore the country a bit. I must admit what a lovely place with sunny skies and the people are very friendly. Being a member of the ‘jet set society’ I got to see a large part of the country, a big thank you to the English Cricket team. My travels led me the length and breadth of the country, although I didn’t get to see the west coast and the middle of the country too much. From Port Elizabeth to Centurion, Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban. I must admit I did not get to spend a huge amount of time in the first three cities as the matches were ‘in and out’ and off to the next venue. But with me being a mentor in the Six Figure Mentors, a community of like minded individuals all with their own internet businesses and mentoring people to start their own businesses, I had friends already formed in South Africa through my laptop lifestyle who gave me some incredible advice and shared their incredible hospitality with me. This hospitality I was to find as a trademark of my whole South African tour. So, from being taken to dinner in Johannesburg to going on safari in South Africa I was really spoilt on my tour of the English vs South Africa cricket series. It would all never have been possible if I had not chosen a laptop cricket lifestyle! What I got to see! Cape Town was really the first city I got to see as such with a 5 day break. I think the name that is synonymous with South Africa is Nelson Mandela, this immediately comes to mind. Now when Mr Mandela was incarcerated all those years ago as a political prisoner on an island called Robben Island(Robben from dutch meaning seal) just off Cape Town(its about a forty minute trip by boat). I was privileged to tour the Island and see the cell he was held in. An incredible experience. But Cape Town is also a cosmopolitan society and has an incredible history and some amazing tourist attractions. It is the home to the South African parliament. Two oceans(the Indian and Atlantic)  meet at Cape point on the penisular. The huge and imposing Table Mountain in who’s shadow the city lives and thrives with a cable car that takes you to the top of the mountain and opens up some incredible vistas before you. Don’t forget the famous castle as well. Cape Town is a harbour city colonised by first the dutch in 1652 and in a tussle between Holland and England changing hands a few times...
