Cape Town From The Sky

Cape Town From The Sky

I recently had the opportunity to fly around the Peninsula in a helicopter and test out Garmin’s new VIRB camera with NAC Makana Aviation. On a perfect day, with perfect visibility, we took to the skies and I got to see Cape Town from a whole new angle. I mean, I thought Cape Town was […]

Meet South Africa: A Weekend In The Bush

An American, Canadian, Kuwaiti and three South Africans speak in hushed tones as the sun sets over the African bush… We were on a safari in the Kruger National Park and with every minute of the setting sun, the temperature seemed to drop by at least half a degree.

Things To Do In Cape Town: A Day In The Swartland

A Weekend At Grootbos

A Weekend At Grootbos

A few weeks ago, my bestie MEJ and I spent a lazy weekend eating, napping and taking in nature’s beauty in cozy 5 star comfort as the rain came down in buckets outside. Sometimes, all you need is a weekend away with a girlfriend at a beautiful lodge, chatting, chocolating and spending hours trying to […]
