Never too old to try something new

November 2012 – Derek Berker has been a personal client of mine for the past 18 years. For his 70th birthday present, I took him on his first ever tour of Robben Island. Besides being an important historical location, the Island has personal significance for Derek. His late father was a vicar who would pay weekly visits to the inmates on Robben Island when it was still used as a jail for political prisoners during the National Party rule.
