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…

Dinner and a Show at Zandvliet Wine Estate

Dinner and a Show at Zandvliet Wine Estate

To make the most of Wacky Wine, we decided to book ourselves for a four-course meal for an authentic and slow farm experience. But this year’s Wacky Wine had conjured the wrath of a gale force wind. We left McGregor well after sunset and had to battle the forces of nature to reach Zandvliet Wine Estate. The…

A Not-So-Wacky Wine Weekend

A Not-So-Wacky Wine Weekend

We set off for Wacky Wine Weekend fully geared for winter in the Klein Karoo. I packed winter coats, boots, gloves and a load of bedding. 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…

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…

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…

Stepping into Autumn in the Cape Winelands

Stepping into Autumn in the Cape Winelands

I like Cape Town in May. The heat has dimmed, and the wind has finally settled. Autumn breaks and the mornings greet you with a cooler edge. Life finally starts to slow down after our summer loving on the beach. As leaves start to turn, I feel a spring enter my step. We are on…

Wining and Dining with the Four Cousins

Wining and Dining with the Four Cousins

I am on my way back into my corner of the Klein Karoo. It was raining when we left Cape Town, but as we passed through the Huguenot Tunnel, the African sun greeted us. I watched as the landscape changed from fynbos to a patchwork of vineyards sprawled alongside the R60. It feels good getting…

A Taste of London Culture and History

A Taste of London Culture and History

It’s hard to believe a city crammed with 8.6 million people can be a lonely place. I guess that is the reason every advertising break on TV includes adds for Love Match and Lovoo to “share moments, events and photos with people nearby“. It can be quite a culture shock at first. Getting lonely in London?…
