Scones with a View at Hillcrest Berry Orchards in Stellenbosch (2018-03-25) | We really wanted to have lunch at Tokara Delicatessen. We completely underestimated just how popular it is. Luckily, a perennial favourite of ours was close at hand to help Chantelle get over her disappointment. There is a reason that I feature Hillcrest Berry Orchards so much on ...

Poached Eggs and Exploring the Beach in Pringle Bay (2018-04-21) | Upgraded road surface along Clarence Drive, Kogelberg views for days, delicious poached eggs benedict for breakfast from Simply Coffee and then some exploring of the rock pools, dunes and lovely beach of Pringle Bay - now that's the way to spend a Saturday morning. Interestingly enough ... (Photo Gallery | Travel Attractions)
To City Lodge Hotel Bryanston and Back Again (2018-04-11) | Last year saw me make an uncharacteristically large amount of Touchwork business trips to both Durban and Johannesburg (unusual because my work behind the keyboard generally means that I get to remain behind the scenes). Not that I'm complaining though. New things to see, new people ... (Accommodation | Photo Gallery)
Coastal Walks and White Houses in Jacobsbaai (2018-03-30) | We have been visiting Jacobsbaai for a good couple of years now, and 2018 was no different, with us spending a short but sweet weekend with Chantelle's folks at the always comfortable Artist's Retreat guest house. The weekend itself was punctuated with plenty of strolls around ... (Photo Gallery | Travel Attractions)
Owls, Eagles and Squirrel Monkeys at The World of Birds in Hout Bay (2017-06-24) | Hout Bay's impressive World of Birds avian-focused animal sanctuary and its exotic garden theme has been a staple of the Cape Town tourist scene for years now. The birds, the greenery, the animals, the sheer size, everything combines to make for a fantastic family outing option ... (Nature and Animal Attractions | Photo Gallery)
The Champion Trees of the Arderne Gardens in Claremont (2017-11-04) | A proper hidden gem of Cape Town, Claremont's Arderne Gardens is home to more than 300, mostly exotic, species of trees - and if you are on the hunt for South African champion trees, then this is surprisingly quite a good place to start. (It has six ... (Photo Gallery | Travel Attractions)
Art and Veld in the Jan Marais Nature Reserve in Stellenbosch (2018-03-25) | I always love paying a visit to the awesome, beautifully compact, Jan Marais Nature Reserve in Stellenbosch (about which I have written before). It is literally the perfect spot to stretch your legs and take in some fresh air without actually having to leave the ... (Photo Gallery | Travel Attractions)
Weekend Wanderings at Pinnacle Point Estate in Mossel Bay (2018-03-16) | My folks have had fractional ownership to this property in the stunning Pinnacle Point Golf Estate near Mossel Bay for nearly a decade now. All of a sudden, the Gordon's Bay Lötters are making a lot more use of this great holiday opportunity, with 2018 ... (Photo Gallery | Travel Attractions)
Birthday Explorations at the Spice Route in Paarl (2018-05-11) | I'm really fond of the Spice Route as an idea. Take a whole heap of talented artisan producers, house them all in one gorgeous old Cape Dutch farmstead, and then open the doors to the public. With so much refined deliciousness (and one Craft Brew ... (Photo Gallery | Travel Attractions)
The Vegetable and Fruit Garden of Babylonstoren in Simondium (2018-06-10) | A visit to Babylonstoren is always a treat for the senses. Tucked away in Simondium (on your way to Paarl), this historic homestead is home to one of the best food gardens that you'll ever come across. Babylonstoren is a hive of commercial activity, hosting a ... (Photo Gallery | Travel Attractions)
Ciders and Coffee at the Lourensford Market in Somerset West (2018-03-04) | The Lourensford Market in Somerset West has easily the nicest selection of market foods and crafts on offer, with constant live music and of course the immaculate grounds of the estate to bolster the offering even further. I have written about this great market before and ... (Markets | Photo Gallery)
Strawberries and Ice Cream from Redberry Farm in George (2018-01-11) | There is a reason why George's Redberry Farm is as popular as it is. Perfectly setup for family outings, Redberry Farm is guaranteed to be packed out each and every weekend if the weather plays along - and don't even get me started about how ... (Family Attractions | Photo Gallery)
Donkeys and Ice Cream at Dassiesfontein outside Caledon (2018-07-22) | Sunday afternoon drives for the sake of Sunday afternoon drives are often quite enjoyable. This particular Sunday drive saw us head out over Sir Lowry's Pass, through Grabouw, along the picturesque Viljoen's Pass, past Theewaterskloof Dam and into Villiersdorp. One u-turn later and we were ... (Farm Stalls | Photo Gallery)
