I love traveling, in and out the boarders of South Africa. Museums aren’t my thing unless they are out of the ordinary. Sight seeing and getting lost is the best way to see and experience a brand new place.

Photo Diary | Harry Potter the Exhibition – The Netherlands

Hi all my lovelies, today’s post will be textually short and visually long! On the 1st of March we visited the Harry Potter Exhibition in Utrecht in the Netherlands and it was all kinds of magical. My husband is a huge potterhead so when we saw the Exhibition is coming to the Netherlands we couldn’t wait for it to open so we can go and gawk at the props from the movies. The tickets were a bit on the pricey side but well worth it. It takes you about 90 minutes to move through all the display areas and we…

We spent 2 days driving around the park, unfortunately we couldn’t find lions but we got to see many…

Trip to Nieu Bethesda

On the 20th of February we took a family trip to the picturesque little town in the Karoo called Nieu Bethesda.  It’s a good 4 plus hour dive from Wilderness and we tried to leave super early, without success I might add!  Traveling with your grandmother that is a month away from turning 89 is no child’s play.  We packed a good old fashioned “padkos” basket and had breakfast just after Union dale. We took a peep at the Wonderboom as well. I prepared some mini quiche Lorraine, my mother and I made a meat loaf, Tamryn baked us some…
