    Sisterhood holiday… a long weekend in Mauritius

    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.

    Cape Town Highlights

    Cape Town Highlights

    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… Read more…

    How to have the ultimate road trip & highlights of my Durban to Cape Town road trip

    Durban to Cape Town road trip

    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. Read more…

    Travel // Lungi and the chocolate factory

    Maison Callier

    It’s Travel Thursday time #TBT . Travel TBT is a throw back to my previous travel posts that I wrote on my previous blog which I have since closed down. So this is another instalment from when I was living in Switzerland, I used to take trips on Saturdays to interesting places close by. The awesome thing about Switzerland was that you didn’t need to have a car, trains pretty much covered every corner of the country. So this is one of my Saturday trips when I went to a chocolate factory, I mean – this was meant to be a dream trip, chocolate and Switzerland go together like x and y. It was a fun trip which I thoroughly enjoyed even though I got sick.  Read more…

    [Travel] South East Asia – work and a bit of play

    South East Asia

    Travel Thursday time! This time I am writing about a trip which I haven’t written about before and one that is fairly recent. In January 2015 I travelled to Hanoi, Vietnam for a conference and Bangkok, Thailand for a visit to some work partners. Even though the travel was mostly for work, I managed to get some time off to explore both cities. I only had half a day to explore Hanoi and a bit more time in Bangkok. Read more…
