Voyage South Africa—Toasty Gardens & Table Mountain

I thought that spending 6 days in one place would feel like a slow crawl. We are so used to moving around night after night when we travel. Cape Town is one of those places that deserves a deeper dive and more comprehensive stay.

She recommended a short hike that … Continue reading Voyage South Africa—Plettenberg Bay to Swellendam

This part of the trip was added late in the game after I unearthed a mountain of information about the beautiful the coastline along the route. … Continue reading Voyage South Africa—Port Elizabeth to Plettenberg Bay
