    What a wonderful rustic experience. Got to reception and everything was ready for us. We're staying in one of the annexes. Whole place to ourselves. Receptionist say: no phone, no TV, no room service. GREAT!!! The room was lovely. Great old bath, wall papered walls, lovely linen. Even put heater on for us.

    Restaurant was wonderful and romantic. Food was great. Will check out breakfast soon.

    This is an experience everyone must try.

    ... to play some pool by two very interesting characters. They were two 18 year old surf guys who acted maybe even younger, they were very over the top and loud but said some amusing things and said 'homo' like Jonah from summer heights. After a couple of games of pool we decided to follow these guys to a place that had great views of the city with another American guy. We were glad we went as the views really were cool! We had a not so wild evening and headed to bed pretty ...

    ... Lisbon for the real thing sometime. Next stop was the Zulu village where we experienced a bit of cultural tourism with dancing and singing. It was also at the top of the hill in an area called The Valley of a Thousand Hills so there were magnificent views down the valley. Lunch was at Hilton which was a shopping complex built on the edge of an old quarry. There were amazing rugged cliffs and a beautiful lake at ...

    ... like African Rondavel huts. We then headed back towards Graskop and stopped off at a lovely viewpoint on the river, which was also home to the South African bush kitchen. Serving traditional food, and the setting was stunning. After this brief stop for Boerewors, pap and beer, we then went to the spectacular 48 metre Berlin Falls. We then tried once again to see God's ...

    I feel like I have the 3 day baby blues. It's the 3rd day of our year and I've hit a slump :( maybe its just that the kids won't stop fighting, maybe I'm more tired then I realise, maybe it's because 2 days ago Max got stitches in his chin and today Ollie has started vomiting! Who nows, but I'm flat :(
    We've picked up dad and we're off to meet a bunch of people for Coffee on the beach ( I know, I shouldn't be whining) I can't explain it. Just hope this day gets better.

    ... elegant casual). Dinner is quiet without JoRina. As I was deciding what to order, the conversation between the Aussies and South African couples centered around cooking techniques. Then to my delight I spotted a lady I had seen most nights elegantly dancing in the Queens Room. I moved to the seat on her left and we talked throughout the meal. After dinner I went dancing in the Queens Room till about 9PM then returned to the ...
