Good morning, hi, hello there.

You know how we all have something we generally don’t like about ourselves? For some it may be their bodies or their hair, for others it may be their inability to do math on the fly. My self pet hate is my ability to ignore myself.

I know I’m not alone here.

I ignore myself and my love for writing words on the pages of this blog far more than I let myself indulge. It’s madness really, isn’t it? If this is important to me, I should make it a priority.

Taxify vs Uber in South Africa

A review of the Taxify vs Uber services in South Africa, and how they differ.

Taxify vs UberNote: This post is not sponsored. I just wanted to share my thoughts.

A little-known fact about me is that I don’t drive. I’m a fully-grown adult and while I can drive, I don’t have my license. I know some people find it insane, but I’ve never had the urge to be a driver and I’ve never had the need to do so. Before I worked from home with Inkfish Digital, I used public transport to and from town. Easy, peasy.

Of course, there are times when I need to get around without the help of public transport and when my darling husband is at work. It’s moments like that when the Taxify and Uber services are my best friends. In fact, it’s become a family joke that I’ll request an Uber at the drop of a hat.

While Uber is the most popular taxi choice at the moment, there’s another service that is starting to make a name for itself in South Africa, and in my case, Cape Town. Taxify is still fairly new here in South Africa, but it’s quickly growing in popularity. I’ve used both of these services and I’ve decided to chat about them both in the post below.
