Posts Tagged ‘Once in Cape Town’

Hello darlings,

Thanks for tuning in again! ^-^

Sorry for not updating in ages, but as they say a picture is worth a thousand words, and here’s what I’ve been up to:

Going to Indaba was an incredible four-day adventure which consisted of meeting interesting people, creating brand awareness and networking, and of course, bonding with my wonderful work colleagues.

During Indaba we stayed at African Sensations Lodge and Spa, which is a little European-styled gem in Morningside. If you need to stay somewhere close to Durban central, I can highly recommend them! I’ll link to my “what I packed for Indaba” post soon enough – as I’m amazed that I fitted everything I needed into a weekender bag! Can you believe I’ve finally joined the ranks of minimalistic packers?

In June, I went on a half-day bus tour with  the amazing Elana E. We rode in style on a Hylton Ross bus, and stops included Andiamo Restaurant in the Cape Malay Quarter, Lagoon Beach Hotel in Blouberg Strand, and the gorgeous wine estate of Allée Bleue in Franschhoek. To keep spirits high during our #dontmissthebus trip, there were some interactive bus games provided by Dynamic Corporate Activities. All in all it was an educational and fun trip, with lots of special moments in between.

If you’ll be heading to the Mother City anytime soon, a stay at Once in Cape Town is highly recommended! This backpackers offers kitted-out rooms, good value pricing, a full restaurant and bar, and very friendly and helpful staff. They also organise weekly events, such as movie nights at and braais!

With some sunny days in between all the rain and cold Cape Town was throwing at us, afternoon trips to Kalk Bay, Tokai forest, and sunset drives were in order, to fully make use of the rare, warm spells.

My beautiful sister Desiree gave birth to my equally gorgeous niece, Ava Sophia. Welcome to the world little one! ^_^

The Hollow Cast (C) Roseanna McBain

And I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to get on stage again as Doris the maid, in “The Hollow”. It’s an Agatha Christie crowd-pleaser, and the cast and crew were wonderful! I ended up doing an acting workshop right after the show ended – which was quite insightful – and helped to combat those post-production blues!

 

As you can see, I’ve been a busy, busy girl!

I have a few more upcoming trips for July and August, so you’ll get another photoblog update soon!

Until next time,

Daughter of Dreams
