Hiking At The Drakensberg

Trekking along dry grass on one of Drakensberg’s many mountains brought me a sense of peace. The stillness and silence was nature’s way of telling me to tune out and simply concentrate on connecting with my inner self. The crunching of twigs, momentary...

High Tea at Mount Nelson

Sunday morning saw us at the Oasis at Mount Nelson for Morning Tea (high tea). The pathway to the lounge area where high tea is served was along some of the most beautiful scenery you could enjoy in the middle of the CBD. The lush gardens with neat hedges and the...

City Break to Langebaan

Having known that I wanted to just tuck up in bed and pretend it isn’t my birthday, my husband surprised me with a weekend away to Langebaan… One of those coastal towns I’ve been secretly eyeing out to visit. We checked in at the Crystal Lagoon Lodge which...

The Entertainer App – Cape Town 2015

One of the first things my husband and I did for 2015 was buy The Entertainer App for Cape Town 2015. It’s jam-packed with exciting vouchers I can’t wait to use! (Psst, it’s still going for R345). This app is available for your phone and once you...

Hartbeespoort Dam

Christmas weekend 2014 was spent with my awesome sisters in Johannesburg. Before parting for the airport on our last day, we headed off to Hartbeespoort Dam for lunch. We almost didn’t go because the weather was being moody that weekend, but we went and we...

Intaka Island

Tree Canopy Walkway

The last time I visited Kirstenbosch Gardens was two weeks after I moved to Cape Town (check it out here: these pics were taken with my old Nokia N8!). And so when warm, sunny weather knocked on our door this weekend, we packed up and went back… but this time,...

Moses Mabhida Stadium: A Tour to Remember

Having grown up in Durban, I haven’t participated in many touristy activities (I confidently speak for people at their home cities across the world). I suppose we simply take it for granted as we already know the ins and outs of everything local. The good news...

Tea by the Sea

*This article has been updated in 2018 with clearer images. Original post was published in 2014. It was October last year when I had made up my mind: I simply had to do high tea at 12 Apostles Hotel before the new year. I laugh now as I think about it… I only...

Treats South Africa’s Yet To Offer

I’ve been off the radar for a while as I had the opportunity to visit Dubai and perform a mini pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia. My journey and experience cannot be compressed into a single blog post but I’ve put together a short list of some noteworthy foods...
