Dining Out

Helloo Guys

A Singles Survival guide to Valentine’s day

Ah February – The Month of Love.. Some get butterfly’s thinking about this, others get nauseous and panicky.. Me, I just get on with life.. 

Love

February 14th best know as Valentine’s day gets so many people all stressed out, thinking they don’t have a significant other to spend the day with or someone to send them flowers and chocolates or take them out for a romantic evening.. My question is why? Why do people get stressed out by this, it’s just another day of the year after all.

Mumford and Sons Live in Cape Town

Last week Friday 29 January I was very lucky to have gotten tickets to see Mumford and Sons perform live in Cape Town for the very first time. This was in fact their first time ever playing a gig in South Africa. The tickets for their South African part of their Tour, Gentleman of the Road, (in Cape Town, Durban & Pretoria) sold out so fast the moment it released, that the band decided to add more shows to their South African tour.

Rocking The Daisies

Hi Guys so I wanted to post this blog like last week already but I was still recovering from an awesome time at the festival I was just too tired to finish the post. But Better late than never hey..

So the 1st weekend of October thousands and I mean THOUSANDS of people flocked to Cloof wine farm in  the small town of Darling to go to one of the biggest Music festivals in Cape Town, Rocking The Daisies. The festival turned 10 this year so it was a biggy and I was excited!

Exploring Joburg

Last weekend I went to Johannesburg for the first time in my life. Being born and raised in Cape Town, I had no Idea what to expect, but I’ve heard some stories. I heard it was very dry and flat and just buildings everywhere..

Bye Cape Town Hello Joburg

Bye Cape Town Hello Joburg

Two of my friends and I went to visit a University friend who lives there.. Truth be told I wasn’t sure where exactly she lived because I was clueless.. Untill recently I thought Pretoria and Johannesburg was the same place – sorry guys… But I quickly learned it’s not and my friend lives near Krugers Dorp, close to Lanseria Airport. So that’s where we flew to.. Firstly I’ve only ever travelled international, so being able to have almost anything with me on the plane and also no passport was totally weird to me.. Lanseria is also a super small airport so this was a totally new experience to me..

Wanderlusting

I’m a big dreamer, I am constantly imagining far away places and planning adventures abroad.. Constantly Wanderlusting… The only problem – As most people my age, I don’t always have money to just book a flight and leave, it takes Months, even years of saving, but I am willing to make the sacrifice to see the World!

I went on an European Contiki by myself last year and loved it, that was my second time traveling to Europe and I have to say the travel bug bit me hard!! My next adventure will be shared with a very special friend, but it’s still a while before our trip – keep an eye out for more deets on that!! But in the meantime (while I am very excited for my trip in the far future) I thought I’d share some travel tips I’ve picked up – I’m no expert but maybe some of these might be helpful!!

Cheese and Wine Festival

This past weekend I went to the Annual SA Cheese and Wine festival on Sandringham Farm, Stellenbosch. This was my fourth year going to this event, every year it’s like a big reunion for most of us going, you see people there that you saw a year ago (at the festival), people who studied with you or who were in the same res as you. There’s a lot of wine, cheese and quick catch ups at this festival.
