Almost a year ago I was lucky enough to have the holiday of a lifetime. My Mum lives in South Africa and very kindly paid for my flights to go out and see her. Looking back, I wondered if I’d manage the flight. Now I know that wondering if I can do something means it’s possible and I should try, because I never know what difficulties lie around the corner.
So, instead of writing all about it, I’d like to share some photos that cheer me up when I’m down. I’ll keep the million animal photos for another day and will write them a post all of their own.
Eating an amazing Thai lunch with wine, obviously. You look our to the right and see a beautiful white sandy beach, and that big hill to the left is Table Mountain!! This blew my mind.
The penguins at boulders beach were freakin’ adorable, if a bit smelly. Even if you hate penguins you have to admit, they have chosen a pretty stunning place to call home.
We ate amazing food (lots of steak, sorry vegan sissy) and had superb wine in some mind blowing places. I wish I have photos of wine tasting at the vineyards. I was possibly too boozy to take photos…
I spent a lot of time watching the baboons reek havoc from the balcony. It turns out the baboons can scale the building and help themselves to Mum’s food, bah ha ha! The house looks out onto False Bay where Mum likes to kayak, with the sharks!
I can’t even begin to describe the super cool places we visited, stayed and spent days, so here is a collection of lovely places!
So, that is a snapshot of my amazing holiday in South Africa last year. I know I’m incredibly lucky and like to remind myself with these photos. I got to see things most people will never see, eat amazing food, drink amazing drinks and literally signed my life away on more than one occasion… I hope that one day J and I can go back together. It’s like nowhere else on earth.
Next up, a million photos of Monkey Land and Birds of Eden… Just a taster…
