Winter is creeping up on us

We are very lucky with our weather here in South Africa. Its pretty much winter in May, but the day temperature is still above 20'C. The evenings and early mornings are becoming nippy though. I chose a weird season to become passionate about gardening, I hope my garden delivers some winter floral inspiration.

Travels from the mountains, to far away cities and into the vineyards of Paarl

A little bit later than I planned to share, but here are some of the beautiful destinations that I visited last year. I accompanied my husband to the Valley of a thousand hills in Kwazulu Natal South Africa; this is a rural area where people live in simplicity and close to nature. Next we were off to Budapest and Szeged Hungary for the Kayak Sprint World Cups. Here I tasted a few exotic foods and quite a few wines at the Szeged wine festival. In December 2014 we went to Buffels bay, a small beach town hidden off the main road to Knysna South Africa. Our road trip ended in Paarl; where we enjoyed wine, chocolate, beer and coffee tasting at the Spice Route, which I definitely recommend if you are lucky enough to visit Western Cape.
