Puzzles and Play at the Cape Town Science Centre in Observatory (2017-11-04) | If you are looking to entertain your kids (and maybe yourself) on a day out when perhaps the weather is not all that wonderful in the Mother City, then a trip to the Cape Town Science Centre in Observatory comes highly, highly, recommended. Back in 1998, ... (Kid Activities | Photo Gallery)
Gourmet Burgers at Pure Craft and Foods in George (2018-01-03) | George isn't really known for being a foodie hotspot, which means then that both Chantelle and I were way more than pleasantly surprised when we stumbled upon the fantastic Pure Craft & Foods during our short stay in the "Capital of the Southern Cape" at ...

The Harbour and the Lookout Point in Gordon's Bay (2017-07-29) | It's not often that I get my brother to come out and visit me here in Gordon's Bay, but on the odd occasion that I do, it is imperative that the girls and I do something out and about with their 'favourite uncle'. Luckily, small ... (Photo Gallery | Travel Attractions)
A Gourmet Burger and Oscar the Seal at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town (2017-05-11) | Table Mountain Aerial Cableway gives you a free cable car ride for you birthday, and my work gives us the day off on our birthday, meaning that I'm forever trying to go up Table Mountain on my birthday. Sometimes I get this right, but most ... (Photo Gallery | Travel Attractions)
Snoek Pizza at the Franschhoek Station Pub & Grill (2017-08-13) | Franschhoek is a fantastic town to visit, beautiful surroundings, incredible wine estates, brilliant restaurants, a grand monument - but in truth isn't really all that geared for visiting families, given the general upmarket offerings of the area. That said, there is one restaurant that does actual ...

Staying at De Oude Meul Country Lodge in Oudtshoorn (2017-07-03) | One of our stops on last year's June Holidays Road Trip was the ever delightful Oudtshoorn, a visit filled with caves, ostriches, camels and milk tart jaffles. In terms of accommodation, we went with De Oude Meul Country Lodge, a fantastic family friendly self-catering accommodation ... (Accommodation | Photo Gallery)
Seals, Cannons and Fishing Boats at Hout Bay Harbour (2017-06-24) | Visiting Hout Bay with the girls invariably means one of two things - either we'll be checking out the bird life of World of Birds, or we'll be strolling along the old harbour watching all the fishing boats dart in and out, and as you ...

Admiring the Tranquility of the Huguenot Monument in Franschhoek (2017-08-13) | We don't really create large scale monuments any more (makes sense, they're expensive and usually only relevant to a small slice of the population), but I do find that a pity because I rather enjoy the spectacle of a well designed monument space. For me, the ... (Photo Gallery | Travel Attractions)
Mini Golf at FantaSea at the Point in Mossel Bay (2017-12-29) | Now that she is more or less old enough to play, I suspect that this might now become a thing whenever I find myself down in Mossel Bay with the eldest munchkin in tow - putt putt at Fanta Sea at The Point. This particular round of ... (Kid Activities | Photo Gallery)
Seals and Penguins at the Bayworld Oceanarium in Port Elizabeth (2017-07-09) | While the days of the crowd being splashed wet while being entertained and enthralled by Bayworld's team of well trained bottlenose dolphins are now long since passed, the now visibly less vibrant (despite its R10 million 2013 revamp) Port Elizabeth tourist attracting complex is still worth ...

A Train and the Colourful Changing Rooms of St James Beach (2017-10-30) | Ah, the brightly coloured Victorian bathing boxes of St. James Beach. What Cape Town travel blog could truly call themselves local without including at least one post detailing this internationally recognised view, right? St. James itself is a suburb of Cape Town, situated alongside the Atlantic Ocean on ... (Photo Gallery | Travel Attractions)
Elephant Dung Paper at the Scarab Art and Craft Village in Sedgefield (2017-07-11) | Just across the road from Sedgefield's super popular Wild Oats Community Farmers' Market grounds stands another, even more colourful entry into the weekend market scene - The Scarab's Craft Market at Scarab Village. Leaving the fresh produce and eco-friendly themes for the Wild Oats Market to pick up, ... (Photo Gallery | Travel Attractions)
Sightseeing from Shark Rock Pier in Port Elizabeth (2017-07-08) | When in Port Elizabeth, head out for a stroll along Shark Rock Pier. Or rather, that is what it feels like every tourist to Port Elizabeth does at least once while visiting the Friendly City. (Well certainly that is what my Instagram feed seems to ...

From Whale Watching to Fick's Pool in Hermanus (2017-08-09) | There is a reason why Hermanus is so popular come whale season time in Walker Bay - its elevated seaside cliffs give the absolute best vantage point to watch the whales cavort in the waters down below. Now while I'm not a massive whale watching fan, ... (Photo Gallery | Travel Attractions)
Coffee and Cake at Old Mill Guest House and Restaurant in Swellendam (2017-12-26) | When I am in the mood to holiday then I holiday, and invariably that then means that I double the length of all long drives because I pretty much want to stop anywhere and everywhere. Case in point: I felt like a Swellendam cake and coffee ... (Food and Drink | Photo Gallery)
A December Holiday in Gouritsmond (2017-12-29) | Last year December saw us enjoy a holiday break in three parts - first Christmas at home, then a splash at Pinnacle Point Estate in Mossel Bay with my folks and my sister's family, followed by a (because we were already in the area) final ...

The Springbok Experience Rugby Museum in Cape Town (2017-05-11) | As a treat to myself for my birthday, I paid a solo visit to the Springbok Experience Rugby Museum down in the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town last year May. It was my first time visiting the rugby museum, and honestly, if you are a long ... (Photo Gallery | Travel Attractions)
