Cape Saint Francis.

Cape Saint Francis.

Helloooo beautiful people!

I thought I’d do a little travel post today. 

When it comes to picking where to live, or where to vacation, I would much rather be in a place that is by the sea. I feel like I subconsciously start to slip into a state of mental disarray when I’m away from the ocean for too long. There’s no denying the restorative power of ocean air, and the calm the sight of the sea alone, brings. 

We spent some time down in Cape St Francis during the December/January holidays. It’s not too far out from Port Elizabeth (about an hour and a half’s worth of driving, away). 

Cape St Francis is a lovely little place I’d describe as the more rugged version of St Francis Bay. A quick Google search will tell you that it’s a seaside village famous for its waves. I’m no surfer but judging by the number of people that were out in the water on their boards whenever we’re there, I’m thinking the place definitely lives up to its reputation.

The National Arts Festival 2019.

The National Arts Festival 2019.

Today marks exactly one week since the end of the National Arts Festival 2019, hosted in the lovely Grahamstown (Makhanda). The National Arts Festival is an event I eagerly await all year round till the June/July period arrives. It’s a (really, really) good excuse to head out for a road-trip, and more importantly, to come together with other festival-goers young and old, local and foreign, to celebrate the arts.

The Road-trip Diaries: Tsitsikamma

The Road-trip Diaries: Tsitsikamma

About a week or two ago, my Mom, sister and I took a little road-trip to Tsitsikamma! I thought I’d share some pictures to hopefully convince you to visit if you’ve never been! It really is the most beautiful place I have ever seen, and what I’d give for everyone to get a chance to see and experience it! I really do hope to come back someday, though I fear I may never leave! Continue reading “The Road-trip Diaries: Tsitsikamma”

Cobblestone.

Cobblestone.

This is actually one of the most long overdue restaurant reviews I have ever written, so here we go!

Cobblestone Bakery & Coffee Shop!

Another one of Walmer’s gems. If I had to use two words to describe Cobblestone, they would be comfort food.

This neighborhood restaurant has such a cosy, welcoming feel, and if those words had a taste, it’d be their food. It feels home made, as if you went over to your mom or your friend or your grandma’s place and they sat down and cooked and served you a meal. There’s just such a personal feel to this place, compared to other restaurants. There’s no over the top decor, or a menu I can’t understand, it’s all so simple and straight to the point.
