CAPE OF GOOD HOPE, ALWAYS BEAUTIFUL AND DRAMATIC

 Hello! Its been a lovely beginning of the year, I am so excited about 2020 which seems to be a very interesting year. Here I am at Cape of Good Hope, the most south - western point of the African continent. This is also were the Atlantic Ocean and Indian Ocean meet. I remember learning about this place when I studied Global Geography at the school but I never thought that one day I will come here to visit. 

If you are in Cape Town for holidays and you want to go to the Cape, I suggest you to stop on your way to the Cape, at Boulders Beach to see the penguins, yes, the penguins! You think that penguins are something that you only could see at the Pole but no, there are penguins close to Cape Town and in the beach! 

From here, we drove more or less 50 min to arrive to the entrance of Table Mountain National Park where the Cape is. Once inside, we drove  for another 20 min within the park to get to the reception and restaurants. I must say that this drive has the most interesting views. 

Once at the parking, we decided to go to the Two Oceans Restaurant to have lunch and get energy to walk to the top of the mountain where you can see everything.  

The food and the views were just wonderful, all of this with a glass of good wine made the perfect pairing :) 
Here half way to the top of the mountain, as you can see, the views are breathtaking.
People always say that the weather of the Cape is unpredictable, the two times I have been here it has been cloudy and strange, which I like because it makes this place and the pictures very dramatic. 
This was  actually my second time here. 6 years ago, I came for the first time with my brother and early this year, I came back with my friends from the university. 
This is for me one of those places that always would like to go back. Definitely a "Must See Place" if you visit Cape Town.  Watch this space, my next post will be about the wine route and two wine farms that we visited ;)

WONDERFIT FROM MILADYS, SWIMWEAR THAT WONDERS



 Do you want to feel beautiful and more confident when you are wearing your swimwear? 
At my age and after having 2 kids, my body will never be the same. I now feel more comfortable wearing one piece swimsuits (still love bikinis), but I’ve got a soft spot for anything that enhances my curves. 
Nowadays I meet more and more women who feel shy being by a pool or at the beach because they don’t feel comfortable wearing swimwear. 
That’s why I am loving the new WonderFit Swimwear range from @Miladys, with shaping technology, and carefully designed by women who know our needs.
How does this shaping technology work? 
Each swimsuit has: 
- Tummy Control Panels with power mesh technology which flattens your tummy 
- Thicker Straps for lift and support 
- Flattering Ruching for a smooth silhouette 
- Inner Support and Padding so it fits like a bra should 
- Wider Cut Bottoms provide a comfortable fit. 
Transforming and slimming your shape to make you feel fabulous and confident! ❤ 



 Would you like to win a Spring/Summer Sustainable Hamper from @miladys including your choice of one of their new WonderFit Swimwear? 


Watch this space! I will be doing this wonderful Giveaway soon

DAY AT THE VAN GAALEN CHEESE FARM

Hello! Sometimes you might feel like me who is always looking for different places to go during the weekend. I recently discovered  Vann Gaalen Cheese Farm. Located just 50 min drive from Johannesburg, this place has become one of my favorite spots to visit in the countryside. 
Vann Gaalen has a restaurant with a beautiful view to a little dam and the majestics Magaliesburg montains. 

During our visit, we ordered a picnic basket and wine, that you have to book in advance. We really loved this place and its atmosphere. 


Our kids had a blast. They were running freely in the fields and spotting and playing with all the different farm animals. 



 My Brazilian Friend Ligia who was visiting me for the weekend, also loved this place.


We didn't have time to see the trails but I heard this place is amazing for trekking and mountain biking. I definitely recommend you to visit the cheese farm, these pictures say it all. And because we would love to do trekking, we have an excuse to come back :)
