European Holiday Day 10: Venice’s Art, Gondolas and Bars

European Holiday Day 10: Venice’s Art, Gondolas and Bars

Our last full day in Venice was spent sightseeing. I started the morning by taking a picture of the quite, peaceful neighbourhood. It really is something so special. We caught a water bus (a vaparetto) to the further side of the city (San Giorgio Maggiore) in order to explore new areas. We got off at(…)

[VIDEO] INCREDIBLE Eric Cheng Footage of Cape Town!

[VIDEO] INCREDIBLE Eric Cheng Footage of Cape Town!

I’ve never heard of aerial videographer Eric Cheng before but his work was brought to my attention this morning and it is nothing but WOW WOW WOW! I almost want to thank the guy for giving Cape Town such a great public service, even if only once off! This is some of the most unique(…)

[WIN] Col’Cacchio Dinner for Two!

[WIN] Col’Cacchio Dinner for Two!

This week I was invited to have dinner at Col’Cacchio in Cavendish. When was the last time you went to Col Cacchio? For me, it’s literally been 5 to 6 years ago. I always look at the people having their lunch/dinner from the escalators at Cavendish but I’d never visited that restaurant. I was pleased(…)

[WIN] A Savanna Cider Hamper!

[WIN] A Savanna Cider Hamper!

CHEERS to beautiful South African cider! I’m sounding so excited because WOW! Going to Europe for 2 weeks and not having a single cider touch my lips was really hard! I truly  missed it! I was stoked when I found a Savanna Cider stand with cider on tap at Rocking the Daisies! BOY, was it(…)

European Holiday Day 9: Venice

European Holiday Day 9: Venice

I find it interesting that on my work’s website, under my employee profile, it states that travelling to Italy was on my bucket list. It’s something I’ve always wanted to so but only thought would happen after my kids were grown. And I don’t even have kids so it would be in a while. So(…)

Rocking The Daisies 2014:  Live Bands

Rocking The Daisies 2014: Live Bands

Some of the live bands I managed to catch at Rocking the Daisies 2014 included: Shortstraw (who were great as they played on Friday afternoon last year and there was no way I could get there in time to catch the gig). This year’s set went down really well. I also heard a lot about(…)

[VIDEO] Rocking the Daisies 2014 Electrodome

Here is my after video from the awesome  Cape Town music festival: Rocking the Daisies 2014 electrodome aka RAVECAVE! WAY better rave cave than last year. We all sorely missed the shelter and comfort of the electrodome. This year they brought it back and brought it back with a vengence, beautimous! Share this:

European Holiday Day 8: San Gotthard Pass & Venice

European Holiday Day 8: San Gotthard Pass & Venice

Hello! Today I’m sharing pics of our road trip between Zurich and Venice. https://vine.co/v/OailzBY12re We set off in my friend’s grandpa’s car and made our way from the north to the south of Switzerland to Italy. Considering I was told that Switzerland is smaller than Etosha Pan (Namibia) I wasn’t too worried about it being(…)

WIN a Trip for 2 to Aust/New Zealand with DHL for Super Rugby 2015!

WIN a Trip for 2 to Aust/New Zealand with DHL for Super Rugby 2015!

I have a love/hate relationship with rugby. My Dad and brother are NUTS for the game, go to as many games as possible, watch games wherever possible (including via the internet while we were on holiday in England!) and do really well on their virtual sporting game online. For me, the culture that surrounds it(…)

European Holiday Day 7: Stein am Rhein

European Holiday Day 7: Stein am Rhein

We’ve all heard about the river Rhein and, if I remember correctly, I learnt it was the longest river in Europe. Well on day 7 my friend took us to Stein-am-Rhein about 30 minutes away from Zurich. We parked our car right next to the Rhein which was a little bit weird because the river(…)

[VIDEO] Rudimental LIVE at Rocking the Daisies 2014

I really didn’t think there was any chance of another group coming close to my Rocking the Daisies 2013 Skunk Anansie experience but I have to say that Rudimental live at Rocking the Daisies gave them a damn good run for their money. I’d still have to vote Skunk Anansie as number one though because(…)

Michael Buble LIVE in Cape Town, 2015

Michael Buble Live in Cape Town! The modern crooner is set to make his return to Cape Town in 2015. I may have mentioned this before, but Michael was never “my type”. One of my friends attended his show and was totally bowled over, having no “skaam” in pushing her husband out the way to(…)
