Five hours on the N7 in a van is unnerving even to the most easy-going traveller. Even so, the scenery is pleasant on the eyes and good for the heart. Philadelphia, Malmesbury, Morreesburg, Piketberg for a quick pitstop to stretch legs, and off we were again.
Did you know that the Constantia Valley is celebrating 333 years of winemaking in the region this year? I'd say it's a pretty good reason to celebrate when so many businesses close their doors after two years.
A glass of heartwarming sweet wine, a couple of smiling faces, and mouth-watering canapes welcomed us upon arrival at Nederburg in Paarl.
At the end of a week, you have to leave extra early to miss Cape Town's Friday frenzy on the roads - especially if you're heading out of town past the Hottentots Holland mountains for the weekend. We managed to get the wheels of our packed-to-the-rafters 2.0-litre diesel Ford Kuga rolling at midday...

Mauritius is not what I had expected. As our bus travelled from Mahebourg to Port Louis, the lush greens and palm trees reminded me of Port Shepstone.
Each year millions of tourists touchdown in the Mother City for a good time of exploration, nightlife, food, and cultural experiences. From April to June 2016, the Western Cape was the second most visited province in the country with nearly 400,000 tourist arrivals.
About 30 minutes out of Cape Town en route to Tulbagh, I look in the rearview mirror and see my sister's face, happily stuck between my two nephews on either side of her. But, we all know these moments don't last very long.
Airports Company South Africa's (Acsa) George Airport and King Shaka International Airport, as well as another African airport, Nairobi Airport, were honoured at the Airports Council International (ACI) Airport Service Quality (ASQ) Awards.
Over the past year, Nissan has been launching new and facelifted models at the speed of lightning. The most recent one being the upgraded #cityproof urban crossover, the Qashqai. At the recent media launch, we cruised around in the Nissan Qashqai 1.2T Acenta.
The Constantia Valley is part of the reason I'd really, like really, struggle to move out of the southern suburbs.

Beat that.
