Franschhoek or Stellenbosch?

Tracey Campbell - November 8, 2013

Yes, another frequently asked question, and one that has oddly enough popped on up TripAdvisor twice this week, is where should people stay in the Winelands – Franschhoek or Stellenbosch? Most people put aside only one/2 nights for a stay in the Winelands, so unless they want to do one night in both, then there […] Read More

It’s Halloween – All Hail Jack The Pomeranate King!

Paul Campbell - October 30, 2013

Today I will mostly be a giraffe

Tracey Campbell - October 29, 2013

Yesterday I became a giraffe. Only for three days, admittedly, but a giraffe nevertheless. No, I am not currently sitting alone wrapped in a cosy white jacket and bouncing happily off the walls of my padded room whilst singing ‘She’ll be coming round the mountain’.  I am instead referring to the latest craze/fad to have […] Read More
