Bein Wine Cellar – #SecretStellies

If you take the M12 between Kuilsriver and Stellenbosch, turn off onto the Old Polkadraai road. The one that runs past the Polkadraai Strawberry farm. Drive around the damn and pass the entrance to Beau Joubert and La Provence. Follow the road and you will find yourself in front of a tiny cream-coloured building the […]

Kensington, London.

I did a quick trip to my beloved London for work recently. On previous trips to the UK I have never stayed in the city itself. Always on the outskirts. Although the outskirts are gorgeous and green and lush, there is something about staying in the city. The noise, the people, the vibe. I love […]

Little bits of London

Hello honies. I haven’t published anything a while because typing and train hopping doesn’t work well together.  I have so many stories to share. From tales about the Zulu king to a surreal moment with boy named Luca from Italy, an attorney from Pretoria and lady named Charmain from Los Angeles.  Click the Instagram link […]

Cheese Heaven.

Not too far from Bath in Summer Set England, is a strange little place called Wookey Hole. The hole is cave. Quite an intricate cave system actually. Dating back to Celts. They used it as a burial chamber. The rumour has it that a witch from the little town of Wookey used to lore young […]

Jane Austen and why I liked her sister.

We visited the Jane Austen House in Bath. I figured, since we were there it would the sensible thing to do to visit her “house”. She was after all, Bath’s most famous resident. Before I get asked, yes. I have read most of Jane’s novels and I am not a fan. (Sorry) I understand she […]

Bath and its Romans.

It’s about a 2 hour train ride from London.  (On the high speed) Oscar’s brother Paul and his Wife Sam have been living in Bath for many years and every time we visit, we understand why they haven’t moved.  Bath is old.

Tower of London and a rather long walk.

We have wanted to go to the Tower of London for quite a while now. On our previous visit to London we attempted to visit it a few times. Finding ourselves in front of a closed door every time.  This time the date was set and we were dragging along a few friends. We were […]

Walks in London. (And some free things)

With the exchange rate raping the Rand, this was by far our most expensive visit to the UK. Not because we are extravagant shoppers, or eat out at lavish restaurants, no. Simply the transport and living costs were what cost us the most. But it’s London.  Therefore you pay the 3 pounds for coffee but […]

Rochester Castle, consider it licked.

Leg one of our little English trip was in Rochester, Kent. The garden of England. My brother and his wife live in a little town (I think it’s a town) called Wainscott and its pretty awesome. Its super central and easy catch public transport from right in front of their place. This of course meant […]
