New Years at Flitwick Ranch, Swartberg KZN

My favourite hubby and I spent 3 days over New Years at Flitwick Ranch, set in the picturesque Swartberg, near Kokstad.  I’d never visited this part of the world, and was looking forward to exploring more of KwaZulu Natal after the last nine dreary, housebound months of 2020.  As ever, this incredible province of ours...

Philadelphia, You Are Enough.

Raw, honest travel blog. I spent one weekend in Philadelphia, in November 2017. I fell in love with Philadelphia. (Fast realising I fall in love with places very easily — but not New York. Agh, New York. A different story for a different day.) Philadelphia had an old-timey feel. I visited Amish Country, met an...
