While leisure travel in South Africa not allowed just yet, it is certainly something to look forward to!
I can’t wait to pack our bags and hit the road for a few days and first up on our list is the garden route coast, as it’s somewhere we haven’t taken the kids to ever before!
It’s just over 3 hours drive away from Cape Town and there is just so much to see and do in that region.
Happy Love Month everyone! I hope you’re enjoying it with your loved ones so far. Every Valentine’s month I always find myself thinking about jetting off on a holiday, just Kurt and I – imagine that! It would take an awful amount of planning to even do that for a weekend. I often think back to our Honeymoon and holidays pre-kids days. It was absolute bliss to just book those cheap flights and not have to worry about much else for the trip! Gone are those days.
Nevertheless, I thought I’d share some of the best honeymoon destinations we considered and a bit about the countries we visited on our Honeymoon !
For the first time in a very long time I can say that we had a proper staycation. We didn’t do much, just lounged around at home. Basically just swim, eat, relax and repeat. It was more than relaxing to say the least and I can honestly say that I feel my body has rebooted.
But on the other hand, there were a couple of cons which makes me want to plan our next Summer holiday right now!!! Before I do that, I think I should list all the pro’s and con’s and see which option is best for my family
A couple of days before I left for my holiday from South Africa to Europe, a report was released, titled “The Worst (& Safest) Countries For Solo Female Travel in 2019”
Low and behold, I was leaving the most dangerous country in the world for a female solo traveller to visit, to the safest country according to the list, Spain.
I felt a sense of comfort that I was heading to a safe zone, especially because I was going to be travelling alone, but at the same time I felt incredibly sad that the country I call home is in such a bad state.
It was even more depressing to return to South Africa, with the news of more missing and murdered women – during Women’s Month of all months. It really got me down.
