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 what, he has the same dream! Unfortunately I can’t sayRead more

Wolfkop family festival

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 us camping out that side as often as possible asRead more

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 love the beach but the sand gets everywhere and theRead more

Looking for snow 

Today The Person got a bee in his bonnet and decided we should take a drive out to Darling to see the flowers. My mom and Fysh went last week and the photos were amazing so we thought why not. I really wanted to show him the weskus sneeu that blankets the fields up thatRead more

A Table Mountain instameet

So as a local earning local monies we don’t go up the mountain really often because let’s face it, most of the fun things like that are aimed at the tourists and the dollars and euros that they bring with them and hiking up there in my severely unfit state would probably require me beingRead more

#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 or the smell of farm or a communal kitchen withRead more

#wherethefuckiscupcake – Part three – Out of place

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 it was only 2km away. Ronnies is one of thoseRead more

#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 southern comfort and lime (apparently another clue) before the restaurantRead more

#wherethefuckiscupcake – Part one – Let’s go damnit

A while back The Person decided that we need a holiday and that my birthday would be a great excuse to have one so he planned out a road trip with secret destinations while I arranged for mama to babysit the Fysh as my birthday gift. I hate driving, maybe it’s a roll over fromRead more

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, in Rosebank, in 2 cars. May as well do somethingRead more
