This past weekend I spent in the KZN Midlands, Midlands Meander to be more exact. We went on a family holiday for my mom’s birthday. The holiday was a mixture of exploring and also relaxing, chatting and laughing with the family. Whenever we are together, laughter is the theme! Here are some snaps of our holiday.
In my previous travel post, I wrote about how my sister and I used to go to island holidays back in the day. We also decided to venture out to the spice island: Zanzibar for a 5 day stay in November 2012. We chose Zanzibar because it’s close to SA and we got a very good deal. We were on an all inclusive deal which meant that our accommodation, meals, drinks were paid upfront. I found this to be so awesome because we didn’t need to worry about paying for food etc., we could just use our money for extra excursions and shopping.
It’s Thursday, let’s throw it back to another holiday I took. My sister and I used to go on vacations that we called the Sisterhood Weekend Island Getaway (SWIG), on our first trip we went to Mauritius for 4 days. This was back in 2010. It was the first time either of us had been to Mauritius. We explored the small island, took a catamaran cruise, check out the capital, Port Louis and *tried* our hand at some water sports.
Going to Cape Town never gets old. I make a point to go there as often as I can. The last time I was there was 2 years ago, so another trip was definitely overdue. Even though I spent 4 years living in Cape Town while I was at UCT, being in Cape Town as a working person (read I have more money) is very different from when I was a student where I spent most of my days in the lab or computer room. On this current trip we went up to the top of Table Mountain on a cable car – I hadn’t done that before, I had been up once before and we walked all the way up and all the way down – my whole body was crying in pain after that experience. We also went to some wine farms for lunch and wine tasting. Check out the highlights…
I love a good road trip. They were very prevalent in my life a few years ago and suddenly died off when I moved to Durban. There is so much that goes into a good road trip, one wrong element can ruin the whole trip. In the spirit of the new year and haven’t had a road trip in forever, my friends and I decided to road trip from Durban to Cape Town via the Eastern Cape and the Garden Route. It is a loooong journey – 1683 km to be exact. In this post, I list some of my road trip tips and tricks and a sneak peek into my Durban to Cape Town road trip.
