My Instaweek Round-up – July Wk 4

This past week was spent in East London doing all the things you do when moving to a new city. We had what felt like a billion house viewings, visits to potential schools, and a few hours of down-time at the beach. It was an exhausting week and to say that I am exhausted today… Continue reading My Instaweek Round-up – July Wk 4

How To Keep Warm & Save Money This Winter

Anyone who knows me, knows that I am not a fan of the colder months. At all. In fact the cold weather is one of the main reasons I chose to return to Africa from the UK. Our last winter there in 2010 was spent with six weeks of frozen snow on our front garden.… Continue reading How To Keep Warm & Save Money This Winter

3 Countries In 3 Days: Day 3

Day 3 dawned at Afriski Mountain Resort. We were all tired, but eager to get up and actually see the resort since we'd arrived at night and couldn't make out much. To say that it was cold is an understatement! Temperature = -1.5°C (That's MINUS 1.5 degrees celcius!) Elevation = 3054m above sea level. Location… Continue reading 3 Countries In 3 Days: Day 3

3 Countries in 3 Days: Day 1

My husband and I went away last week with our friends, on what can only be described as a fast paced epic adventure. My husband and his friend are avid 'bikers'. Think more 'respectful adventurers' rather than 'leathers and goatees'! They both ride BMW GS1200 Adventure bikes. They have all the safety kit and have… Continue reading 3 Countries in 3 Days: Day 1

My Wanderlust

I am so excited I could almost burst. If you read my post from a few weeks ago you will know my husband and I are getting 3 days away to ourselves while my mom and step-dad come visit to look after the girls.

Day Out: Bloemfontein Botanical Gardens 

When you live in a small town you quickly exhaust all the attractions your little town has to offer. Whilst we spend a lot of time in Joburg, it's really far to go for a few hours change of scenery. So off to 'Bloem' we went. We've been a few times but usually just to… Continue reading Day Out: Bloemfontein Botanical Gardens
