If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you would have seen my recent post about Winelands Light Railway, situated just outside of Stellenbosch. A few weeks ago, my mom sent Hubs and I a link for a relatively new thing-to-do-with-kids nearby – riding mini trains! I can remember riding them as a kid, but… Read More Sunday Meanderings – Winelands Light Railway
I’m back with another Sunday Meandering, this time we visit the Majik Forest in Van Riebeeckshof.
I’ve been thinking, I know that I promise to share our day trips and road trips with you, but for some reason I don’t include the smaller ones – the ones to the beach or to the park. So, I’m going to introduce “Sunday Meanderings” to the travel section of this blog.
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
With KAMERS/Makers 2018 Stellenbosch just around the corner (it’s running from 30 October to 04 November at Blaauwklippen), I thought that I would share my top 10 finds from previous markets with you. I look forward to this market every year and every year it doesn’t fail to disappoint. If you don’t know what Kamers… Read More KAMERS/Makers – 10 of my best buys so far
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.
When last have you visited the Paarl Mountain Nature Reserve? I can tell you that it’s a place that Hubs and I hadn’t visited for a good 15 years until recently. 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
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.
