From a drought to 2 years of rain in one season and the most snow we’ve had in 10 years… It’s been a pretty good winter cause you know how much I love puddle jumping. But back to the snow… Tuesday morning I woke up […]

WE. ARE. MOVING!

WE. ARE. MOVING!

At long last I can officially say it and I can’t be more excited or scared shitless. Fysh and I have had this dream of buying a van and living out of it for years now, and then we met The Person and hey guess […]

Roadtrips, waterfalls, near death and turning 30 in a forest

At the beginning of March we headed out to the Wolfkop Camping Villages just outside Citrusdal for the weekend to join the very first Wolfkop Family Festival that is now going to be an annual event. Before that weekend I’d never heard of Wolfkop before despite […]

Last week Fysh and I packed up our little car and headed off towards Citrusdal for a week of relaxation, hot pools, waterfalls and big green trees at The Baths. Despite it being cut a day short due to the tent we borrowed not being […]

silwerstroom strand

I am not really a beach person. I am more a river in a forest sort of person mainly because the forest is pretty and green and has shade which means I can hide from the sun that my body is allergic to. I do […]

#wherethefuckiscupcake – part five – shit meet fan

I’m going to condense the last 5/6 days for you mainly cause I still don’t have wifi at home and am blogging from my temperamental phone. I’ll highlight the fun bits in separate posts. Sunday we left Southern Comfort with the intentions of heading back […]

#wherethefuckiscupcake – Part four – Southern Comfort Horse Ranch

Southern Comfort Horse Ranch is in the middle of the forest in Haakenberg (just outside Knysna) and it’s as horsey as you’re going to get. A family run and maintained farm with the chattiest tannie and her daughter taking bookings. If you don’t like flies […]

We packed up our goods and headed out at check out instead of staying an extra day like we’d originally had planned because of course the forest was calling. Being on route 62 we decided we HAD to go to Ronnies Sex Shop seeing as […]

#wherethefuckiscupcake – Part two – Warmwaterberg Spa

It was dark when we arrived so I didn’t get to see too much but we checked into a wooden cabin with a bed that sounded like it had seen better days and needed a can of oil, had a proper Karoo dinner and a […]

One more stop. I think

We missioned through to Rosebank which was a good 40 minute drive (and that for capetonions requires padkos hahaha) for a birthday party and The Person headed there from Stellenbosch. For a party that was an hour and a half long.  So here we are, […]
