Overnight Fun at Club Mykonos in Langebaan (2020-09-07)

We have done it a couple of times now, and pandemic or no pandemic, we decided that a drive up to Langebaan to view the Spring flowers in the West Coast National Park should be a perfectly safe outing to… Continue Reading →

Staying and Splashing at Aan De Heuvel in Swellendam (2021-01-11)

Klein Karoo Fynbos at Badensfontein in Montagu (2020-10-25)

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… Continue Reading →
