My travel posts are usually quite popular amongst my followers so here’s another one! Just because you know, I can! I suffer from a syndrome called FOMO – fear of missing out. So I could definitely not sit back and watch everyones tanned bodies on pretty beaches while I chill at my pool in quiet Jozi over December… so iDecemeber’d & you?

I’m pretty sure you are all wondering why on earth I haven’t just moved to Cape Town yet…well, let’s see what 2017 holds! I just love this place it makes my soul come alive. And no I don’t have family in Cape Town (because you know, coloured) I just have amazing friends l get to call my own.

I took my car down this time (okay my new car and I didn’t drive) but I didn’t correct anyone when they were impressed that I did a 14 hour drive like a boss. Sorry not sorry. But it allowed me the freedom to do and go where I wanted when I wanted, hey there miss independent. Cape Town, for me, is like a snow flake… it’s different every single time. Each trip brings love, laughter, adventure but most importantly wine, lots of wine!

This trip was probably the best one so far…it had a bit of everything; spice, drama, uncontrollable laughter, nights I don’t remember & new experiences! There’s so much I could tell you ( but I’ve have to kill you) but I can safely say I have eaten a chip roll at Pollsmoor prison being served by a inmate, had KFC for Christmas lunch on the beach and raced a sports car drag style!

Here were some of my highlights and some must-do’s for your next trip to the Cape:
  • Hermanus wine route – what breathtaking views, really living up to its name – Hemel en Aarde
  • Beau constantia wine farm – do you see a pattern here? Another great farm with killer views, even from the toilet, oh and the different wine pairings here are pretty dope.
  • Silvermine nature reserve – easy hiking trails with a really really black dam to cool down in. Disclaimer: hike as early as possible it gets crazy hot and super windy at the summit.
  • St. James beach- neatly hidden away from the masses and where I tripped over some rocks and simultaneously met ‘The Rock’
  • Cafe Blanc de noir – nestled in the outskirts of the Stellenbosch wine route, this quaint joint has some seriously good pizzas and the perfect spot to chill with your dogs/lover/family.
  • Old biscuit mill – oldie but goodie (bring cash and an appetite)
