A Trip Around the Constantia Wine Route with The Constantia Wine Tour

I grew up in Cape Town’s Southern Suburbs, which meant that visiting the wine farms in the Constantia area was always a regular pastime. Whether it was as a child with my mom and her friends, or doing tastings myself as I got older, I have visited these world-famous farms for years. So when I was […]

Autumn Change

I started this blog on the 3rd of January 2017. I started with a post explaining my decision to take a stab at this blogging thing (A Decision Made). I never could have imagined how much this seemingly small move could have impacted on my life, but three months later, looking back, it was one of the best decisions I […]

That is what I experienced two Sunday’s ago at the launch […]

Opt to Adopt

As a family we have always adopted animals from welfare organisations. Our friends did too. It was just the route my mom had always taken, so it was natural that I did the same. I began my search for a new furry friend to join my family after the death of my late cat in the […]
