How to weekend in Berlin the non-touristy way

How to weekend in Berlin the non-touristy way

I love people, I really do. I think I always knew that, but since I started travelling I realised it all the more. Sure, people can be really lame at times, like when they can’t accept each others’ differences. But apart from that, they’re pretty awesome. I […]

#CzechOut Prague

#CzechOut Prague

October is a good time to go to Prague. There is something special about walking around in the streets with the fresh autumn breeze grazing your face, your hands snug in your pockets, and the red- and orange-coloured trees creating an unusual sense of warmness as […]

Trading tips: Berlin

Trading tips: Berlin

I figured every blog in the world has at least one post apologising “for being so quiet”. Here is mine… *bows head in shame* I always get so annoyed with myself for neglecting the things I love to do most – one of them being writing […]

Tiramisu tasting in Treviso

Tiramisu tasting in Treviso

Living in Italy taught me to appreciate quite a few things. Even things I thought I appreciated before, but turned out I never fully did. To name a few: Cheese, coffee, tomatoes, risotto, pasta, cannoli, gelato and, of course, Tiramisu. Never having been a fan of rich […]

The story behind the Waenhuiskrans cave

The story behind the Waenhuiskrans cave

Squeezed in the back of the car between two car seats, occupied by a toddler and a 3-month-old, off we were to Waenhuiskrans – also known as Arniston – for the weekend. An easy 2-hour drive (depending on traffic and toilet breaks) makes it a […]

The oldest pub in South Africa

The oldest pub in South Africa

Did you know the oldest pub in South Africa is located in Buitenkant Street in Cape Town? Yup. Even though it was built way-back-when in 1808, Perseverance Tavern or “Persies” only got its official wine and malt license in 1836. It was supposedly the tavern of choice for: “Cape […]

Introducing the Malay roti

Introducing the Malay roti

Like many other Indian dishes, the roti [pronounced: roh-tee or rooh-tee – depending where you’re from apparently] was adopted and adapted by the Cape Malay community and is quite a favourite in many households in Cape Town. If you haven’t a clue what I’m talking about (you newbies […]

Muizenberg’s oldest shop

Muizenberg’s oldest shop

The last man standing, the fittest survivor, the old kid on the block… That is how I would describe Majestic Cafe in Muizenberg – the oldest shop in Muizenberg, established in 1937 and still creating holiday vibes selling fish & chips and soft serve like hot […]

Fun in Philadelphia

Fun in Philadelphia

I have for quite some time, embarrassingly enough, been one of those people who thought that the only good thing about the N7 is that it’s an alternative route to the lovely Langebaan and Paternoster. I was pleasantly surprised to find yet another gem just […]

Cape Town City Hall

Cape Town City Hall

I went to Cape Town City Hall for the first time recently, after calling Cape Town my home for more than four years now… I know, scandalous! Nevertheless, I really appreciated and admired the stunning old structure. I felt pretty stupid having to ask some […]
