How to make a Flat White with Fleet Coffee

How to make a Flat White with Fleet Coffee

From humble beginnings, Cheslin Grobler started a successful string of coffee shops called Fleet Coffee in the Cape Winelands. This young entrepreneur has gone from barista to coffee shop owner, bringing great local coffee to a corner near you. Why “Fleet” Coffee?

Our Final Hours in London

Our Final Hours in London

It is with heavy hearts that we turn our tails to London. As the plane passes over the patchwork landscape of green parks and suburbs, I ponder about what I will miss most. Reading the Metro on the tube definitely became one of my highlights. We had become so accustomed to that routine we felt like we…

Having a Sweet Tooth in London

Having a Sweet Tooth in London

Sometimes getting lost is the best way of finding something, whether in the real world or within yourself. I think getting lost in London is one of the most wonderful things to do.

An Afternoon along the River Thames

An Afternoon along the River Thames

I can get fat on gourmet food in London.  The city seems to be bursting with markets, street vendors and restaurants wherever we turn. Delicious smells are always wafting through the air, seducing us. Freshly baked bread, crispy bacon, newly roasted coffee… this cacophony of scents attack your senses and you become drunk on the…

Seeing the Sights on the Isle of Skye

Seeing the Sights on the Isle of Skye

The Isle of Skye is like a film set. It is quite fitting that Dave insists on playing movie soundtracks for much of our journey throughout the island. We climbed onto the island from the mainland using the Skye Bridge. We arrive early afternoon, so we spent the rest of the day exploring the Isle….

Taking it to the streets of London

Taking it to the streets of London

The Old Street is a hub of creativity and hipsters. Strolling along Shoreditch is like visiting Woodstock on any ordinary day in Cape Town. Street art and graffiti wash the walls, gourmet restaurants line the roads, and it is also a new area – recently converted from old factories to an up and coming hipster joint….

Out and About in London Town

Out and About in London Town

The day started like a typical Sunday – lui en rustig. We shared a lazy morning and afternoon with family, and an adventurous afternoon with friends exploring London Town. I rolled out of bed early with the sun to find Chris already entertaining Chewie – the Cavapoo puppy – downstairs. Once the rest of the house…

Afternoon Delight at Honest Chocolate

Afternoon Delight at Honest Chocolate

Honest Chocolate is not that hang you go to every day. It is a treat. A visit to Honest Chocolate is full of cocoa decadence that fills every corner of the room. This local Cape Town cafe on Wale Street is the best indulgence in the city. You notice it when you first step into…

Pancakes and Castles at Graskop

Pancakes and Castles at Graskop

Today was road trip day. After two successful trips into Kruger National Park, my uncle decided to show us the other treasures hidden in this part of Mpumalanga. We were to drive east towards Graskop, a little tourist town. Then northeast towards the edge of the world, to peer through God’s Window. Once there, we would…

A Winter Country Getaway in McGregor

A Winter Country Getaway in McGregor

It felt good to be nestled in my corner of the world again. It had been a while since I was back in the little village of McGregor where I grew up. I take a moment to breathe in the silence. I arrived on Friday night a while after sunset. The road trip up from McGregor…
