Stellenbosch University Botanical Gardens – A Little Hidden Gem In The Heart Of So Much History!

Stellenbosch is one of our favourite towns to visit. Filled with rich history, old Cape Dutch style buildings (which we absolutely love) and a laid-back vibe that I crave for every now and then. Everything seems a little bit slower there.

Out and About – Blaauwklippen Family Market

We really wanted to hit the beach yesterday. The weather over the past few days hasn’t been great with the South Easter howling, so we were so much hoping that it was going to be beach perfect weather.  But instead, we woke up to some dark clouds, and we knew that it wasn’t meant to… Continue reading Out and About – Blaauwklippen Family Market
