Thinking of travelling to South Africa? Summer (December to February) is the perfect time to visit, with long, sunny days, road trips, afternoon wine tastings, and seaside getaways to look forward to! Last year my husband and I spent a long weekend in Arniston, a tiny fishing town located about 3 hours drive from Cape Town. We enjoyed outdoorsy activities such as walking, hiking, bird watching, and swimming in the ocean, and indulged in local seafood and wine. Read on to see why we absolutely love this hidden corner of the Western Cape!
I have very mixed feelings about being a South African expat.
I was born in Cape Town as a third generation South African. I lived in the same house for 24 years of my life, attended school and university in Cape Town, and the majority of my extended family live in Cape Town and surrounds. My roots are firmly South African, with my not-so-distant ancestry leading back to Europe in a confusing and mysterious trail of immigration and repatriation.
