From Phu Quoc island we flew to Hoi An… Well actually we first had to fly back to Ho Chi Minh and then from there flew to Hoi An because there’s no direct flight. So a bit of a mission, but not too unbearable as the first flight was only 1 hr and the […]
Last week I popped in at the Kalk Bay Theatre for a new show called Big Boys The Third.
Featuring real-life brothers, Ash & Brad Searle, the show is the 3rd installment of a story of two brothers who find themselves in pretty crazy situations.
After two sell out hit shows, number 3 promises even more […]
A few weeks ago Nederburg challenged Come Wine With Us guests to uncork their creativity with their range of Ingenuity wines.
Now I may not be the biggest artist/creative, but I do love wine, so I figured hey… maybe wine-fueled creativity has been more my vibe all along. 😉
I had not heard of Nederburg’s Ingenuity […]

So from Ho Chi Minh City we jumped on a 1 hour local flight to Phu Quoc island. But before we move on – we flew with VietJet Air which is cheap (cost us around R650 pp for each internal flight), […]
A few weeks ago I was invited to stay at The Stellenbosch Hotel which had recently undergone a bit of a revamp. Located right in the heart of Stellenbosch town, the hotel was built on land that was granted by Governor Simon van der Stel somewhere between 1692 and 1701. It was then restored […]

Towards the end of July, bestie Leigh and I embarked on a flirty 10 day trip through Vietnam. We booked our flights through www.travelstart.co.za which offered the best options by far. We flew with Emirates Airlines via Dubai arriving in Ho Chi Minh in the South of Vietnam and then on the way back […]
Café Royale is a cute little French-style café located at the Cape Royale Luxury Hotel in Green Point. Their normal trading hours used to focus on breakfast & lunch, but they recently extended their hours for dinner & drinks with the launch of a sexy new tapas & cocktail menu.
I joined a group of […]
Last weekend I watched the Cape Town City Ballet’s latest production of The Sleeping Beauty which is currently showing at the Artscape Opera House.
Now if you’ve been craving a classic ballet with beautiful set changes and glamorous costumes, this is going to be right up your alley.
I actually had a bit of a blind […]
OK, so AfrikaBurn doesn’t technically count as “travel” in the sense that it’s still local, but I think travelling deep into the Karoo qualifies it just this once. 😉
For those who are not familiar with AfrikaBurn it’s an annual event which takes place in the Tankwa Karoo where people from all walks of life […]
