We escaped the city for a quick weekend away to the countryside. These spontaneous trips are what life is all about (LOL)! I think I was just excited to be going away and escaping the monotony of every day life. We went to Misty Hills Country Hotel, Conference Centre & Spa which is nestled in the foothills of the Swartkop mountains on the threshold of the beautiful Kromdraai Valley in Muldersdrift. This place truly afforded me the serenity I was craving, and its was only a 20 minute drive from home (score).

The ultimate tour of Soweto, Johannesburg

It is the month of our father’s birthday, and as South African’s we take this day quite seriously. Every year on July 18th we celebrate Mandela Day. Mandela Day is a global call to action that celebrates the idea that each individual has the power to transform the world and the ability to make an impact. The Mandela Day campaign message is: "Nelson Mandela has fought for social justice for 67 years. We're asking you to start with 67 minutes." It is encouraged that on this day we observe 67 minutes as a tribute to his legacy and all he did for us as citizens of this country.
