WWOOF SA – Part 1 in Plettenberg Bay

img_2289-small
Stumbling upon WWOOF [World Wide Opportunities On Organic Farms] was a stroke of good fortune. It has been a long-time dream to travel to Ireland, and I was looking at ways to work my way around, as obviously I am not in a position to just go on an expensive holiday abroad. WWOOF is an international organization and has an office in most countries. How it works is that you sign up as a member in w...

Eat Naan and Curry On at Punjab Express

punjab-2
We're not typically curry diners, I have never learned to make curry at home, and when we do eat out we typically frequent restaurants that serve pizzas, pastas, fish, steak or burgers. A few weeks ago on a chilly evening I craved a good curry and rice like I remembered having in Durban. We ordered takeout curry from a restaurant I won't name, I having a vegetarian option and my fiancé a lamb curr...

A Walk with the Fae Along the Elfin Trail

Elfin Trail 1
When I first moved to Cape Town in 2010, the Cecilia Forest became my place of sanctuary where I'd escape to after a busy week of work to regain a sense of well-being amongst the trees. As a single parent walking alone, I didn't veer off the main roads, always sure of a passing walker every few minutes or so. When I spotted the invitation to join the Travel Massive and VoiceMap experience of the E...

The Spirit of a Bench

Saronsberg Cellar, Tulbagh
Some travellers collect magnets, others teaspoons or bumper stickers. I collect benches. I don't actually physically take a bench away with me, but I do snap photos wherever I stumble upon a bench along my way. Why benches? For me benches represent so much. They are a place for a weary traveller to rest a while, a contemplative wanderer to pause for thought, or the beauty seeker to to stop and ...

A Wild Weekend in Wilderness

IMG_5977
Early on a Friday morning, the HGTS Tours shuttle arrived at our gate to whisk us away on a roadtrip to join the rest of the Travelling Media team for a wild weekend in Wilderness. I always love a roadtrip, taking in the beautiful surrounds, and at this time of year, bright yellow canola fields as far as you can see. This time though, we were grateful for being able to get the week's work finished...

Elgin Valley – More than Apples

winters-drift-2
Little over a week ago if you had asked me “What is in Elgin?” my answer would have been short: Apples, and the best pies from Peregrine Farm Stall. Elgin, after all, is known as the home of Appletiser and produces 60% of the apples grown in South Africa. But that was last week… now I know that the Elgin Valley’s treasures are vast and varied.
