Those who know us, know that we love to break away every so often and go camping. When Hubs heard that I had managed to secure some January leave, he extended his leave and got to work finding somewhere for us to escape to. He soon found Rivierplaas campsite, with one site still available for… Read More Rivierplaas – The perfect weekend getaway
This week’s challenge or theme for #romancingthehome was a trip to the market. In case you didn’t realise it from my Kamers post, I love markets. The vibe, the produce, the local makers, the live music… there aren’t many better ways to spend a day off! Luckily for us, Cape Town and surrounds has so… Read More Romancing the home: A trip to market
I love a good picnic! When this week’s #romancingthehome theme happened to coincide with a road trip up the west coast, it only seemed right that we set our picnic up in the West Coast National Park. It is, after all, Flower Season.

This despite the fact that it’s only about a 20 minute drive from home and it has the most beautiful (and safe) braai (barbecue)… Read More Day trip: Paarl Mountain Nature Reserve
If you know me at all, you know that I love winter. And a good Sunday drive. Winter is also my favourite season, maybe because I was born in winter? The cold, rainy days; warming up next to the fire; snuggling in a fluffy blanket with a good book, series or (more often than not)… Read More Sunday drive – The road less traveled: Ceres and Surrounds, Western Cape
If you caught my Instagram stories this recently, you would know that I had the opportunity to spend my birthday weekend away with family and friends at Marcuskraal Chalets . This is the second time that we have been there and again, it did not disappoint!
My mom’s 60th is coming up, so as part of the celebrations, my sister-in-law arranged a wine tasting day, on the Franschhoek Wine Tram. It was fantastic, we had so much fun spending time together as a family, tasting wines, eating, and catching up.
