My Cloak Of Invisibility

As is customary in my house, the TV is on whilst I’m preparing the school lunch boxes and feeding the girls their breakfast before school.

We have an open plan kitchen, lounge and dining area so I keep the TV remote control handy and use it like a weapon whistle.  Continue reading “My Cloak Of Invisibility”

6 Things To Do In Bloemfontein for Under R50

Bloemfontein, also known as ‘The City of Roses’, is one of South Africa’s three capital cities – the Judicial Capital. It is located right in the middle of the country and is rich in South African cultural history, from the Anglo Boer War to the birthplace of the ANC.

It’s fair to say that a trip to ‘Bloem’ is a must if you want to experience a real taste of South Africa and delve into its cultural heritage and diversity.  It is also the capital of the Free State, the home to the Toyota Cheetahs Rugby team, and the University of the Free State (UFS).

Located as it is in central South Africa, it has excellent transport links to all corners of the country. It is directly on the N1 route which is the national highway that links the very top of South Africa to the very bottom – Cape Town and is the perfect place to stop-over on your journey. The Bram Fischer airport offers a large selection of domestic and regional flights to most of the major airports in the country. To take advantage of the many flight deals available to get you to Bloem, whether for business or pleasure, you must check out the Cheapflights website.

I was asked to write a sponsored post for the Cheapflights website to be featured in their Cheap & Free blog category. This was perfect for me as I live close to Bloem and have visited it many times both for business, pleasure and of course … shopping! In this post I have listed the top 6 things to do in Bloem for under R50! Yes, R50! A fantastic list of activities, especially for families!

Please do check out the link for ideas on what to do, where to go, and a taste of what Bloemfontein has to offer. I wasn’t joking about the historical importance of the city – the museums, monuments and art galleries are endless.

We Took The Kids Zip-Lining!

This past weekend we took the girls Zip-Lining in Parys. Parys is a small town on the banks of the Vaal River in the Northern Free State, South Africa. Parys has a huge variety of activities to offer, and the fact that it is only an hour’s drive from Johannesburg makes it an idea getaway option for families, friends, adventure seekers, corporate team building, and just about everyone.

We actually live about an hour and a half from Parys in Central Free State, and have been there a few times, but this time we specifically booked to take the girls zip-lining.   Continue reading “We Took The Kids Zip-Lining!”
