Colorful houses, cobbled streets and cute little toddler in a baseball jacket, does it get any better? Continue reading
From the second we arrived at the waterfront Arren started cooing and aawing like we took him to Disney land. Continue reading
As the rest of the world is preparing for cold holiday season, here in the southern hemisphere we are getting ready for beach days. Continue reading
We had all these plans to take Arren to the park and take him for a walk along the promenade, but our last minute add on, turned into the only thing we ended up doing. Rhodes memorial blew my mind, the view from this colossus of a monument is incredible.
What child doesn’t have a fond memory of the circus? and at the ripe old age of 7 months Arren got to experience his first animal free circus! What a lucky little boy.
Cape Town is notorious known for its mountains, the ocean and the wine farms, but what it really should be known for is its amazing chocolate! Continue reading

On the weekend we decided to go visit the penguins at boulders beach. These little penguins just seem so strange on the beach, they should be in snow frolicking around, not rolling around on the beach like a swim suit model. Continue reading
Yesterday we celebrated Carl’s 30th Birthday! As I was going through the photos of our full day of adventures yesterday, my heart just swelled to 500 times its normal size. Continue reading
The west coast national park is just a quick hour and a half drive away from Cape town central and oh, so amazing. We decided to go for a weekend adventure and see what all the talk is about with the spring flowers and we were surely not disappointing. During flower season the whole park is filled with wild flowers all over, if your heaven is a flower covered paradise I bet you will think you died and went to heaven, but today’s post is not about the flowers, I wish it were, I just can’t get all those flowers out my head, but its about the amazing beaches in this park. When people say they like long walks on the beach, they must be talking about west coast national park? Walking on long stretches of deserted beaches with the gentle waves lapping at your feet will make anyone a romantic. I felt like I was in a romantic novel walking on the beach while holding Carl’s hand.
Next time I think we will definitely make a weekend trip and stay at the park, there is just so much to do and not enough hours in one day to fully experience this park, especially when you forgot to fill the car up with petrol/gas and you don’t know if you will ever make it out of the park. Don’t worry we found a gas station. I took a little piece of the park home with me thanks to the ridiculous amount of beach sand that was leftover in my shoes, once you get sand in your shoes you will never get all the traces out again. Now, I carry little pieces of the park with me every time I lace up my trainers.
^^ leave behind only footprints.
^^ Carl had a lot of things in his hands, that’s how this semi formal photo happened.
^^ How can you not be mesmerised by the ocean with a view like that.
^^ So many footprints, but we didn’t see any people.
^^ Baby’s first beach trip?
^^ even the sunlight was magical.
^^ Seagull….always such posers.
