Last week was what Pierre and I call “Hell Week”. This week starts with our anniversary (3 years this year), peaks with Pierre’s birthday and then closes with Valentine’s Day… Hell? Not for us, but for our bank accounts.
I flew down from Johannesburg to George on Tuesday, anticipating (and packing for) the sunny weather the Southern Cape has had the couple of weeks before my arrival. Well, I must have deserved some bad karma somehow because it started raining the minute I set foot in the Southern Cape. We didn’t let that stop us though. I still put on the outfit that I had planned for that day, ignoring the cold as much as I could.
We celebrated the day by visiting Pierre’s beautiful cabin in the woods on their farm, appropriately named Whiskey Creek, situated a short drive from Plettenberg Bay. We made a quick breakfast and enjoyed the unmatched views while catching up on everything that happend in the month that we didn’t see each other.
We then set out to have Kurland Hotel and Polo Farm’s famous tea and scones on their veranda. The hotel has giant fireplaces in the hotel as well as on the verandas, which was all lit, keeping me and my damn summer outfit warm. The view, the coffee and the freshly baked scones was just incredible. I indulged. Walking out of there with a slight food baby, knowing that we are still on our way to lunch.
After we wandered into the stables of the Polo farm and watched as these athletes trained, we went for lunch. For lunch we had freshly baked bread with some tapas and wine at Bramon Wine Estate. We had such a great time! We had a table in the vineyard with vines surrounding the whole table, making you feel like you are the only people enjoying this restaurant.
I guess we basically just ate all day…
but who’s complaining? not me.
Even though I was completely inappropriately dressed for the weather, I really loved my strapless top and black shorts from River Island. I bought these items an hour before my flight to George, I barely had space for it in my suitcase, but it was beautiful…and on sale… so I had to have it. Oh, and my sandals are from Country Road.
I am back on the farm planning my travels for the next 3 months. I will be visiting London, Paris, New York, Madrid, Beijing and will be doing a boat trip off the coast of Thailand. I will also be doing another road trip through Namibia and Botswana as well as visiting my friend in Mozambique. I am too damn excited!! I plan finding all the best hidden spots in these interesting places and I will be reporting back to you. <3
