    This is why I’m proudly South African

    You can travel the whole world but, I promise you, no place on Earth will match the beauty that is South Africa. Just like several other African countries, our country has been through a lot, but when it comes to keeping things fresh, hilarious and slightly spicy, South Africa is the best place to extend your vacation from two weeks to… FOREVER. In the midst of the all the unfortunate events such as femicide, weak currency, a failing economy, unemployment and, more recently, COVID-19, I wanted to share with you guys why I love being South African. There is so much that makes me proud that I don’t even think…

    Strawberry picking at Polkadraai Strawberry farm

    I would like to take a moment of silence to appreciate the fun moment I had at Polkadraai considering the fact that I have been trying to explore… Polkadraai Strawberry Farm is in stellenbosch which is only 26 minutes away from Observatory on weekends without traffic. It is pretty much easy getting there and you’ll know by cars parked outside that it’t where you are going. In order to be allowed to the strawberry grounds, a bucket for each person must be purchased which can be purchased in the first and only supermarket you see upon arrival in the farm. The buckets range in prices from R40.00 per person for…
