The Window Seat

Good morning from my window seat in our apartment in New York! I woke up at 5am New York time so I've just been planning our day while Rob sleeps in. Our apartment is small but homely and I feel like a real New Yorker blogging by the window. So far Harlem isn't too bad, there's a very large police presence which I think is a good thing. I'm hoping to convince Rob to head North to IHOP for breaky before hopping on the subway for the real adventures to begin!

Kalk Bay and St James'

For my final morning in Cape Town it was time for a little brunch and down time in Kalk Bay.

Lion's Head, Blouberg and Constantia Glen

Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens

Another must and something we always do other than Table Mountain is Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens in Newlands, Cape Town.

Llandudno, Hout Bay and Kommetjie

The next few days were spent roaming from beach to beach and bay to bay including Fish Hoek, Hout Bay, Kommetjie and Llandudno.

V&A Waterfront, Cape Town

Another easy ride from Camps Bay is the Victoria & Alfred waterfront which is definitely not your average harbour.

Table Mountain and Robben Island

Camps Bay became a great base for us to do the real touristy things Cape Town has to offer.

Camps Bay and Clifton, Cape Town

With the luxury of Franschhoek and La Petite Ferme to enliven our appetite it was time to enjoy a little hotel life in Camps Bay.

La Petite Ferme, Franschhoek

La Petite Ferme is hands down one of the most exquisite places I have ever had the privilege of eating, the photographs will speak for themselves.

Franschhoek, South Africa

After a chilled week in Villiersdorp it was time to treat ourselves. Just over an hour out of Cape Town and on the way back to the city from Villiersdorp is the idyllic French town of Franschhoek.

Dassiesfontein, Caledon

 On the road from Villiersdorp to Caldeon is a little treasure chest well worth a stop.

Villiersdorp Waterfall

 A short drive into the mountains from Villiersdorp is a spectacular waterfall.

Villiersdorp, South Africa

My dad's family all live in Villiersdorp which is sort of on the way back from Knysna to Cape Town just inland a little.

Wild Oats, Buffalo Bay

On the way back towards Cape Town about a 20 minute drive out of Knysna is the town of Sedgefield where you can get such a good breakfast/brunch.

Knysna, South Africa

Knysna was a very special stop on our journey up the Garden Route and would provide the base camp for the adventures further East over the next week or so.

Minor Technical Difficulties

So you know I said I would be uploading my South African posts every morning and it started off pretty well and  now it is slacking off? Well it isn't actually my fault, I'm really struggling to upload my images onto blogger. Occassionally I click the 'choose files' button in the upload tab and it starts to upload the images and then the web page crashes (thanks Chrome) but most of the time it doesn't respond at all when clicked. Anyone got any advice or tips to help me solve this problem? It would be much appreciated. I've been trying to upload them in Internet Explorer instead but it is painfully slow...

Come on Google Chrome, please don't let me down!

Harold Porter Botanical Gardens, Betty's Bay

Betty's Bay is home to the Harold Porter Botanical Gardens which are worth exploring everyday of the week. (Literally, they are open 365 days a year!)
