7 Jul 2013 sunset at Lagoon Beach in Milnerton, Cape Town Lagoon Beach Accommodation Review

Visitors to Cape Town know Clifton and Camps Bay, but not as many are familiar with Lagoon Beach. The first beach just north of the city, it offers the classic view of Table Mountain. What you lose by it being more windy, you make up with sublime sunsets and as it gets dark being enchanted by the view of Cape Town lighting up.

Jeannie likes the colour green...and also likes the low Kulula airfares." It wears a dress of dark green, it glides smoothly through the air, it treats you like a Lady. It is flexible and considerate and it never drops you."

Apr 2012

Mango Durban flight We tried Mango Plus on our flight from Durban & loved the Bidvest lounge, but struggled to spend R50 each


A long-haul flight in economy class is cramped and uncomfortable, no matter which airline you fly, which is why little details make all the difference.

Feb 2012

 The Point Hotel "I love it", my 4-year-old daughter replied when I asked her opinion of the Point Hotel. I concur, the hotel offers views of the south Indian ocean, sounds of crashing waves & salty sea-air to suck into the lungs.


Cape Town holiday

I have to say, there are few things more satisfying to me than discovering a hidden corner within a place well known to me. It's like one of those crazy dreams where you keep opening the same door to new, unexplored passages.
