Toomuchloveliness: Weekend in Paternoster

Toomuchloveliness Guide to a Weekend in Paternoster

With busy work schedules and city stress we love nothing more than packing up the car and heading up the West Coast for a weekend away. This year we have discovered Paternoster for the first time during Winter and headed back again this Spring! We so loved spending time in this beautiful town that I…

Botriver Rainbow Spring Weekend

Over at Toomuchloveliness, we are huge fans of Botriver. I think it is the coolest kick-ass town just about ever. We first discovered Botriver on our trip up to their first every Botriviera Spring Weekend. We booked a little self catering spot at Uitwaaien, signed up for the fancy Friday dinner and had a glorious…

Toomuchloveliness: De Linden in Paternoster

A Winter Weekend in Paternoster with De Linden

Paternoster means “Our Father” and is said to refer to the prayers of Portuguese sailors visiting our shores. Paternoster is about 145 kilometres from Cape Town and is one of the oldest villages on the West Coast. And it was recently our first time visiting this beautiful little village! We are big fans of weekends…

One Marine Drive in Hermanus

One Marine Drive in Hermanus

We love heading out of Cape Town and exploring new towns. Despite Hermanus only being an hour and a half away from Cape Town it is a town I haven’t visited for years. One Marine Drive in Hermanus was the perfect excuse to head back and explore a little further. I am going to do a…

We’re going to Vietnam: A How To

I have two weeks of leave from end October to early November. Having leave in my industry is a really big deal. We almost never get to take leave besides our office shut down in December. I was determined to not let this leave go to waste! The solution was to fly away on a…

A Quick Round up of The Botriver Spring Weekend

I don’t tend to write posts diary style but we had such a lovely weekend away exploring Botriver that I thought I would squeeze in a quick post and share our weekend. I have really fallen for the little town of Botriver which is truly charming. I spend a lot of time in between farms…

Botriviera Spring Weekend and Our Weekend Plans

I almost never do pre-event write ups. I have a pretty strict policy that I only write about events after I have attended them. However, there is always an exception to the rule. And this exception is the Botriviera Spring Weekend! I am a huge fan of a lot of the wine that comes out…

The Radisson Hotel: A Seaside Gem

As some one who grew up on the Atlantic Seaboard side of Cape Town I have spent a lot of time at The Radisson. My family did many Sunday brunches, I have enjoyed plenty of sun-downers on their deck and I can tell you their chilli poppers are great! And I can remember sitting on…

An Adventure Getaway to the Cederberg

Just after Easter I managed to wangle a little leave from work and we headed up to the Cederberg for a hideaway from reality. The Cederberg is a big deal for Cape Townians – its one of those go to holidays. However, this was my very first trip out to the Cederberg! We had the…

A Taste of Tulbagh: Saronsberg Wine Tasting

I don’t normally write blog posts about one wine farm. The honest truth is that there isn’t really enough content. I often write about a few farms in one go, I’ll write about a day out or I’ll write about an amazing lunch at a wine farm. But I really couldn’t resist writing about Saronsberg!…
