Top 25 reasons to #ShotLeft in South Africa

Shot Left ?

In tourism terms, taking a #shotleft is to take a break, a day out, a weekend away or a mini break in South Africa.  

Shot left is derived from South  African township & taxi terminology. When you want to get off you tell the driver to sho’t left.

Loosely translated it means stop just here.

Then all your chommies will get jealous and they will want to come with you, or have their own, better #shotleft, and soon the whole country is taking #shotlefts all over the place.

Then the economy will boom, and your wife’s brother and Tannie Lettie will finally get jobs, and  then even they can afford a #shotleft.

Your kids will love you for it, and you will save money on all the gadgets you don’t need to buy them.
