Travel Review: Simon’s Town – S.A.’s Naval ‘Port of Call’

In early October 2014, I first had the pleasure of travelling to Simon’s Town, which is about an hour or so from Cape Town, depending on traffic and which route you take to get there.

I’ve only visited Kommetjie twice now in my three or so years of residing in Cape Town – but it’s definitely one of my favourite travel spots; at least of those found along the Cape Peninsula coastline.

Travel Review: Experiencing the delightful Franschhoek Wine Tram

This past Saturday, I had the enormous pleasure of experiencing the Blue Line of the Franschhoek Wine Tram. Like their other lines (of which there are several), it allows passengers the chance to select a maximum of five to six (out of eight) Franschhoek wine farms to hop-on, hop-off at.

It is quite easily noticeable from […]

Festival Review: Valentine’s Day at the Burger Festival, Cape Town

Perhaps one of the things I love most about the Western Cape – and the Mother City – is its enthusiasm for outdoors festivals and markets, and 2016 has seen yet another such festival added to the city’s growing event ranks in none other than: The Burger Festival. Tickets to Cape Town’s first-ever exclusive Burger Festival sold out quickly, especially […]
