Nairobi, Kenya.

Nairobi, Kenya.

Nairobi, Nairobi. Green city in the sun. You could spend a lifetime here and still fail to run out of things to do. There’s always something to see, something to do, or people to meet. Being a Kenyan myself, I might be biased in heaping an endless amount of praise on this East African gem, but it truly is a special place. Every time I’m in town, I discover something new that I’ve never tried, or seen before. So I’ve resolved to make a new list or city guide whenever I’m there. You can check out the first post that I ever made about what to get up to while you’re in Nairobi.

Soul Searchers.

Soul Searchers.

Jeffrey’s Bay really is the gift that keeps on giving! Every single time that I become convinced that I’ve seen all that this little surf town has to offer, another gem makes itself known. Meet Soul Searchers, a beautiful beachfront guesthouse on Tecoma Street. It’s pretty easy to find, which makes getting around town quick and convenient. When you’re vacationing in a beach town and are able to, why not make the most of it and stay in a place with an ocean view?

African Perfection.

African Perfection.

If you’ve been here for a while, then you may remember this post and this post about my favourite little beach town, Jeffrey’s Bay. J-Bay locals live a life centered around the ocean and surfing. That’s probably why the town has such an undeniable laid-back feel. 

Supertubes has to be one of the most famous waves in the world (think the WSL championship tour) and is widely considered as the best right-hand point-break out there. It’s wild to think that for us Eastern Cape locals, it sits right here in our backyard. 

Sitting right above the wave of every surfer’s dreams, is African Perfection, luxury guesthouses on Supertubes. It really doesn’t get much better than this. The guesthouses are made up of three self-catering properties and two B&B properties. When African Perfection reached out to offer a complimentary stay, the answer was a no-doubt-about-it yes, yes, yes!

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.
