Moved onto Stellenbosch today, a pretty small town smack bang in  the middle of hundreds of winery's, brought alive by a massive uni population so many bars and cheap eat eastablishmnets.

We booked straight on the wine tour attached to our hostel and went the next day. Soon met a couple of lovely dutch girls and an American lad. Sampled 21 wines at vinyards throughtout the region as tagged above, though I probably did more, as kept forgetting how many I'd had! My professional opinion was that they were all yummy as I didnt even spit out the Chardonnay!
Our guide was more concerned with smoking fags than being our guide, buy we still enjoyed ourselves. You get what you pay for!!

 Discovered a few bars with our new friends that night which included a comtemporary pizza/ pasta joint and then on to a really swarve exotic cocktail bar, smoked the shishka cherry pipe and watch on as professional dancers cheesily kavorted on the dancefloor praying they didn't pick us up for a dance!

Got up early for our first real road trip here so very excited. Over 300kms to the Garden Route starting point Mossel bay, even so far the drive down the N2 was still spectaular, mountain passes, lakes, forests, green rolling hills, remined me very much of New Zealand quaint scenes,  rural farmland  and always the sillouhette of a mountain etched into the horizon.
