Charlie's Bird

living the dream with Charlie and Thandi and chirping all the way back to the nest.


more sleeps! I am so looking forward to jumping in that car and driving away on Sunday!

We start our road trip in Nieu Bethesda, staying a gorgeous looking place, called ‘Die Kliphuis’ (The Stone house)72_image_1 Does that not look idyllic? We are looking forward to some good Karoo weather to cheer us! And of course, there is lots to do there – the Owl House, the Valley of Desolation, wander the streets of Graaf Reinet… Looking forward to that slower pace of life.

Next stop is Stoney Cottage, deep in the Karoo, off the R62, 31_image_1 it looks amazing! And it is off the grid – what we’d like to achieve with the mountain house, when we eventually build, so its as much about an awesome holiday spot, as a research opportunity.

Then its 3 nights in Cape Town, at Chez Jacqui, dinner at The Test Kitchen (oh my god!!!!), some good friends, good food and good shopping.

Then after a diversion through Hermanus to see my family, we head to Summer Hill, an incredible looking spot near Vermaklikheid/Stilbaai. 8_image_1 It’s pretty isolated, 4×4 access only and I am looking forward to solitude after the busyness of the Mother city. 2 nights there, then we are home for the final push before Christmas and the year end… Can you believe it is here?
