Pizza and Wine at Jakkalsvlei near Herbertsdale (2019-01-04) | Herbertsdale is a small settlement that lies east of the Gourits river, 56 km north west of Mossel Bay.

Ferns and Forest in the Garden of Eden, Knysna (2019-01-05) | Halfway between Knysna and Plettenberg Bay sits an ideal spot to introduce your kids to the gorgeous forests of the Garden Route National Park, a literal stop and stretch your legs point right along the N2 itself.

Sculptures and Selfies at Tokara Delicatessen in Stellenbosch (2018-12-08) | I love the fact that Tokara with its wonderful wines, olive oils and exquisite restaurant, also has the more casual, equally as beautiful, Tokara Delicatessen on the estate, opening the beautiful art, landscape and food experience to an even broader range of people. This particular visit ... (Food and Drink | Photo Gallery)

Food and Crafts at Lourensford Market in Somerset West (2018-12-16) | I do think that it is impossible not to love the Lourensford Market experience.

Searching for Strawberries at Polkadraai Farm in Stellenbosch (2018-09-15) | When Spring rolls in at the start of September, the strawberry plants start bearing fruit, and as such, Stellenbosch's firm family favourite, Polkadraai Farm, opens its gates and allows the public to stream in and start hunting out the best of these sweet red ...

Steam Trains at the Elgin Railway Market in Grabouw (2018-08-11) | I have mentioned the wonderful Elgin Railway Market in these pages before, but a visit to this fantastic market with its breathtaking 1920s Art Deco inspired styling is even better if you manage to come through on a day that the brilliant Ceres Rail Company ...

Fluttering about at Butterfly World in Klapmuts (2018-07-28) | Klapmuts' very own Butterfly World has long since expanded since its early days of just breeding butterflies. Up until recently they had suffixed the word "Zoo" to their title, but that wasn't really all that accurate, seeing as their expansion is based almost entirely on ... (Kid Activities | Photo Gallery)
A Giant Jersey, Pancakes and Silly Fun at Tuinplaas in Albertinia (2018-09-22) | With the impossible to miss combination of colourful flapping flags and ridiculously dressed ostriches waving to you from the side of the road, sooner or later you are simply going to have to pull off the N2 at the edge of Albertinia and investigate just ...

Milkshakes at the Pepper Tree Art Stable in Philadelphia (2019-05-12) | After a lovely mini weekend away to Darling, we took a bit of a detour coming home and ended up in the blink and you will miss it tiny village of Philadelphia, situated just off the N7 about 38 km north of Cape Town.
