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.

Living the Country Life at White Water Farm

Living the Country Life at White Water Farm

I took a sneaky weekend getaway to one of the Western Cape’s most colourful regions: the Overberg. This winter escape at White Water Farm took me straight back to my childhood days I spent in the countryside.

Winter Warmers at Ginger & Lime

Winter Warmers at Ginger & Lime

We Cape Townians are not very brave in the face of winter. We stay indoors, layer up and wait until the winter rain gives way to the summer sun. But in doing this, we miss out on cosy winter warmers we can only experience for three short months of the year. There are many gems…

If past experiences were anything to go by, we would be expecting a wet weekend with snowcapped Langeberg Mountains. Wacky Wine Weekend is a local wine festival dedicated to…

Keen for Free-Beer-Friday at Beerhouse?

“Hey! Keen for Free-Beer-Friday at Beerhouse this week?” We have often dropped this line in our ‘Three Musketeers‘ WhatsApp group. For the past three years, meeting at Beerhouse at 4 pm on a Friday has become sort of a weekly gathering. Beerhouse is sort of a central hub in Long Street. The canary-yellow building jumps…

Weekend Coffee at Mischu Cafe, Sea Point

Weekend Coffee at Mischu Cafe, Sea Point

I have been hunting for a coffee shop that is open on the weekends. More often than not, I do not have time during the weekdays to explore new coffee corners. To my surprise, most of the coffee shops in Cape Town are either closed or closing early on weekends. This weekend I was determined…

Leaping around Lion’s Head

Life has finally slowed down. The weather took a turn for the colder and the summer sun had migrated further north. The clouds came out to play and draped itself around Lion’s Head in the most inviting way. Oda and I geared up for our weekly hiking excursion. It felt good to get out again….
