Whale Watching from the Cliff Tops Piazza in Hermanus (2017-08-09) | October 2005 saw the official opening of the Cliff Tops Piazza in Hermanus, a bustling central node for the town and one of the most perfect spots to sit, ice cream or coffee in hand, and watch whales come whale watching season in Walker Bay. In ... (Photo Gallery | Travel Attractions)
Kids Indoor Play Area at Happy Valley Kids Play Centre in George (2018-01-03) | So now having had to tack on a trip to George thanks to our car trouble, we left Gouritz nice and early, made the stressful drive down to George (every uphill had me nervously chewing my nails), and arrived with some time to kill before ...

Mosaic Sculpture Hunting and Paragliding in Sedgefield (2017-07-11) | In 2010 Sedgefield became the first African "Cittaslow" or "Slow Town", joining the global movement that promotes quality of life and resisting fast-lane lifestyle. The town takes this denomination seriously, and because of this, remains a leisurely, tranquil little Garden Route stop, worth paying a visit ... (Photo Gallery | Travel Attractions)
USA 2016 - 19 Walking the Dog on the Beach in Del Mar (2016-07-17) | Following our little walkabout the Torrey Pines Gliderport, Johann and I continued the theme of taking his dog out for a walk by heading down to Del Mar, a small, prosperous, and nearby beach city that forms part of San Diego county. The first surfing location ... (Photo Gallery | Travel Attractions)
USA 2016 - 18 The Torrey Pines Gliderport at La Jolla, San Diego (2016-07-17) | One of the very first bits of sightseeing that I did after reaching San Diego was a drive about the beautiful La Jolla area with Johann, the ride ending with a walkabout on the cliffs flanking the historic Torrey Pines Gliderport site. Given its 100 years of flying ... (Photo Gallery | Travel Attractions)
Egg Dipped Croissants at Pajamas and Jam in Strand (2017-12-06) | Chantelle's favourite little Helderberg restaurant is without a doubt one of the more unusual ones to be found in the area. In the shadow of an old decommissioned naval helicopter perched on top the roof, flanked by both the family-run scrap dealer business and costume hire ... (Food and Drink | Photo Gallery)
Art in the Mosaic Kraal at Spier Wine Farm in Stellenbosch (2017-09-16) | When it comes to picking out the granddaddy of visitor friendly wine estates in Stellenbosch, then surely the venerable Spier comes out right at the top of the list. It has been on the tourist welcoming bandwagon for many years now, and as a family we've ...

A Lagoon, a Bridge, and a Beach at Kleinmond (2017-05-06) | The whole Rooi-Els, Pringle Bay, Betty's Bay and Kleinmond strip that we have access to here from Gordon's Bay always makes for a delightful day outing. One such outing saw the girls and myself spend some time in Kleinmond, first grabbing a rather cheesy pizza ... (Photo Gallery | Travel Attractions)
Pizza and a Horse at JanKan in Paarl (2017-05-27) | It hard not to like the beauty of Paarl, thanks to all its surrounding mountain views. Last year May saw the four of us spend a bit of time out that way, in the process paying a visit to the rather haphazard/dilapidated JanKan farm stall ... (Farm Stalls | Photo Gallery)
Roosterkoek and Smoor at Veepos Padstal in George (2018-01-04) | I mentioned earlier that we were forced to tack on a short stay in George over the December holiday period, during which we hired a Volkswagen Tiguan to do a bit of driving about in (our car was in the shop for repairs). Now December holidays ... (Farm Stalls | Photo Gallery)
Staying at the French Lodge International in George (2018-01-03) | Last year's December holiday was pretty nice, kicking off first with some beach time at Pinnacle Point in Mossel Bay, followed by some more R&R in Gouritz for New Year's. Sadly for us though, our ten year old Hyundai Accent developed a problem (lost power ... (Accommodation | Photo Gallery)
