Weather is finally heating up and spring will soon be in the air. In the interim, my postcards from Cape Town in shades of azure and dreamy turquoise should make the dreary winter blues feel a little less chilly.
We pulled up to a tent and I think I almost started to cry. If there were a list of ideal places to stay, I probably wouldn’t put dust and walls made of nylon too high up on that list. But you know what? I actually really loved it. It was a definite lesson in […]
My city light and sky-scraper height tendencies aside, every now and then I suppose some clean air and (mostly) empty street vibes can be particularly good for you. A good pair of heels in hand of course, I took to the little town of Parys for corn fields and antique shops galore. There are floors […]
Happy 2017! I’m so glad to finally say that. The last year was a tough one in so many ways for so many people. As I have found myself saying a number of times in the past while, seasons of life come and go and I wish you all strength and compassion for the year […]
Beyond the crystal water and the mind-blowing mountainous scenery the Western Cape has to offer, there’s an array of lush and calming vineyards, gardens and nature to take in of every variety. Kirstenbosch’s reputation as one of the most beautiful gardens in Africa precedes itself. It’s sloped against the eastern part of Table Mountain and it’s […]
From the tip top of Table mountain, down to the scenic winding roads of Chapman’s Peak, into picturesque Simon’s Town and finally, at the edge of the continent – this is an endless feast of majestic blues that photographs can’t begin to speak on behalf of. What to do? DRIVE. One of my great loves is […]
Shein | YDE Whenever I get the chance to run away to this vibrant city, I jump at the opportunity. Cape Town is South Africa’s pop of colour, with its little Bo Kaap houses one atop the other like lemon drops and bougainvillea. It’s always teeming with tourists but it’s a must-see. As is the regenerated suburb […]
With summer just around the corner, we decided to take a little getaway this weekend to Hartebeespoort. We stayed at Wallinga Lodge, just outside of the city, and had the best Balinese inspired break. The lodge is run by the loveliest couple who’ll guarantee you’ll have the best breakfast and most pleasant conversation. It’s like […]
I really value my sleep, so those early morning get-up-and-go-shoot things don’t always excite me. And worse at 5 AM when the weather is frosty, but this was so very worth it. Dunkeld Country Estate is a picturesque getaway in Dullstroom that lights up with life at this time of year, in an absolute profusion […]
Nestled high in the lush green hills bordering Lesotho, the Golden Gate National Park, closest to the small town of Clarens, houses exquisite log cabins so peacefully remote and generously boundless, you can hardly believe the grandeur of everything furled out before you. It’s a little like a painting, and it’s absolutely unbelievable.
