A taste of fine wine

A travel blog entry by shamiandlauren


Today is our full day in Franschhoek. We started our morning with breakfast at the guest house. They serve such good food in South Africa. The cold bar has muesli, yoghurt, honey, a few cereals and fresh orange juice and coffee. The coffee is delish here too! You also have the option of ordering eggs cooked how you like, sausage, tomatoes, …

Out of Africa

A travel blog entry by sarahinsoafrica


... entry, I’ll never be able to sit still for long!

I’m not sure where my life will lead, and for now I’m okay with that (When people ask “what are your plans for after graduation?” I no longer panic quite as much when I say “I don’t know”!)
