Mauritius SO Sofitel

Mauritius SO Sofitel

Having been to Mauritius twice before, I thought I knew the island pretty well. Turns out, I got to experience a whole new kind of Mauritius in the South. On previous trips with my hubby, we stayed on the North Coast – and I pretty much know Grand Baie like the back of my hand. But this time the Mauritius I experienced was wilder, more idyllic, peaceful, serene and very different from the “buzzing touristy” island I’ve always know.

The South Coast of Mauritius is wild. It’s even referred to as the “Wild South” and you can tell. It’s much greener, where palm trees don’t dominate, but rather blend in with the lush vegetation. I even saw pine trees growing on the beach.

Blyde River Canyon

Blyde River Canyon

The Blyde River Canyon has been on my bucket list for ages. Funny thing is, every year (for the past five) we head out on an amazing African Bush Getaway to the Timbevati. And every time, we drive straight past the town of Graskop, home to the magnificent Blyde River Canyon.

This year, I decided to surprise the hubby with a stay-over on our way back and if you haven’t experienced the sheer magnificence of the Blyde River Canyon, you are missing out on one of God’s most magnificent creations!

Mauritius Wild South

Mauritius Wild South

One of my favourite experiences on our Mauritius trip, and one that felt – truly Mauritian – was our little rum tasting tour and touring the Mauritius Wild South.

Since we did the Catamaran excursion ten years ago when we visited, we opted for an inland tour of Mauritius instead.

Ultimate Road Trip to Limpopo

Ultimate Road Trip to Limpopo

You guys know how much I love a good road trip and I’ve always said that road tripping is part of the holiday fun. Being in South Africa, we are really spoilt with an amazing road tripping landscape, where (most of the time), we have access to pretty decent roads to travel long and far!

Limpopo being one of my favourite road trip destinations!

Drakensberg Mountain Getaway

Drakensberg Mountain Getaway

If you’re a regular Joburg-to-Durban (or Durbs to Jozi) road tripper and you haven’t added the majestic Drakensberg area to your stop along the way, then you’re really missing out on one of the most beautiful landscapes South Africa has to offer.

A dramatic escarpment of glorious basalt peaks will take your breath away.

Sweeping vistas, flawless panoramas and stunning mountains, the Drakensberg is also home to the highest peak in South Africa.

Experience Mauritius: A Visual Story

Experience Mauritius: A Visual Story

It’s been over a month since our magical holiday to the island of Mauritius, and judging by my Instagram feed, you can tell I’m still not over this paradise island. We had such an incredible stay and today, I wanted to share some of my Mauritius Travel tips and a visual story that may help you if you’re planning a visit to this East African gem.

Mauritius truly is a slice of paradise! From the beautiful beaches to the crystal clear waters with incredible sea life. Then there’s the five-star service (throughout the island), the flowing cocktails and of course, the fantastic weather.

But the one true thing that makes Mauritius so incredibly special, is it’s warm and friendly people who welcome you into their little corner of paradise – if only for a few days!

A Holidaymakers Guide to “Do Durban”

A Holidaymakers Guide to “Do Durban”

I recently had a lovely little break in my old city, Durban. While I was there, soaking in the winter sunshine – (yep, like true Joburger’s we spent most of our time at the beach – in winter noggal) – it reminded me of how amazing Durbs is. Having lived there for 10 years as a local, I had forgotten what made Durban such a gem! Granted, when you live somewhere, going on holiday to the same place is a totally different experience. So, it was nice to Do Durban firstly as an adult (without parents on holiday, where you can do your own thing) and secondly as a holiday maker with nothing on the agenda. If you find yourself in Durbs, here’s my little travel guide on what you should include on your holiday fun… DO: The Beach Of course! Durban has the best beaches in South Africa, and I’m not just saying that because I used to live there! While I wont deny that Cape Town has beautiful beaches, the freezing Atlantic Ocean on that side of the country (plus the wind almost all the dang time) kinda puts me off going to the beach in Cape Town.…

24 Hours in Prague; What To Do, See, Eat and My Travel Tips

24 Hours in Prague; What To Do, See, Eat and My Travel Tips

I love reading 24 hour city guides. I like to see what others would get up to if they had only 24 hours, because I think it highlights their best parts of a city.

Although my recent visit to Prague was for 3 days, bear in mind that this was a business trip, so a lot of the time our schedule was packed with interviews, launches and store visits. But, I did manage to experience a full day of exploring before jetting back to SA – as well a few sights sneaked in between the agenda.

If you’re planning a trip to the kingdom of Bohemia, then here’s a few of my travel tips…

Come Walk With Me Through Old Town Prague

Come Walk With Me Through Old Town Prague

I’ve just returned from T-H-E most amazing, 3 day trip in beautiful Prague and can’t get over the beauty and charm of this magical, fairy tale like city of contrasts. I was there attending #BataFashionWeekend, as Prague is the home town of the 123 year old Bata shoe brand. In the coming weeks, I’ll have more content on the fashion show; with an insight into what you can expect to see from Bata (exciting things to come), as well more travel content,  but for today, I wanted to take you along, on a walk through Old Town Prague with me…

Jacarandas in Cullinan

Jacarandas in Cullinan

Going to see the Jacarandas in full bloom in Cullinan has been something I’ve wanted to do for ages. Last year, we attempted to go and see them, but I think we might have been a bit too late as they had already finished blooming in November. This year though, I wasn’t about to let them get away from me.
