Sabie – Burgers, Biking, Waterfalls, Coffee Etc.

Not even a half hour away from White River, to the north, rests the quiet town of Sabie in the valley beneath an impressive mountain range. Location Scout lazily suggested Sunday (25 October – it’s been a while between the actual event and the post, but it is still just as amazing!) morning that we should…

Swing by Waterval Boven for the best sport climbing in Mpumalanga

Tired of hanging around the house? Why not round-up a group of your #besties and swing on by Waterval Boven for a bit of an adventure. When I heard that we will be doing adventure activities on the #tourismmonthMP media tour launch, I was filled with a mix of emotions. I was excited to be…

Mandela’s gold

On a July trip to the #cityofPretoria, Location Scout decided to end a week of being couped up indoors for workshops, out in the open, participating in the Afriforum Springbok Vasbyt held at the Voortrekker Monument in Pretoria. While he did his 10km track (in my vocabulary running = self-inflicted torture), I had a more…

They are the virtual chocolates on your travel pillow, the cookie at the side of your coffee cup, the… I think you get my point.  All sweet things and little moments that make a good day great. So when I received this (👆) notification from @travelopulent , something that…

#HiddenGemSA on #TravelChatSA will help you to #discoverMpumalanga

I am confident that tonight’s get together will be…

#TravelChatSA gives rise to #gotmyjam campaign

About two weeks ago I shared a post about a notable midweek event {#TravelChatSA} that have become the highlight of my week since my introduction to it in August 2014. A member of the #TravelChatSA community and co-host of the #FarmstallsSA chat, @WiseWally, had a most amazing idea while we were discussing the fruits of our…

Join us for #TravelChatSA 08 October 2014 talking #FarmStallsSA

I am so looking forward to this week’s #TravelChatSA on Twitter where #FarmStallsSA will be under the microscope. I almost did a jumping jack (still trying to get into the jogging thing) when the invite arrived to co-host this weeks’ chat as Curious about Farm Stalls was the topic of my last post.  Farm Stalls are the manna to get us through…

Curios About Farm Stalls

My expectation of a Farm Stall is quite high. And when I hear the word Padstal / Farm Stall a scene of me stepping into a farmhouse pantry with freshly baked pastries and breads, preserves and produce, ginger beer and home-brews fills my mind’s eye. I expect the smells and sounds of food not produced…
