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…

Sleepover in the suburbs with The Vineyard Hotel

I never need much of an excuse for a weekend getaway! But sometimes we are really busy and stealing away a Saturday and Sunday to head up to Stellenbosch or Franschhoek is not always feasible. The perfect solution has been more closer-to-home hotel visits! I know it sounds silly because my home is only twenty…

Oranjezicht City Farm Market at The Waterfront

I was always a big fan of the Oranjezicht City Farm Market when it was in its original location. And I used to try visit on a monthly basis. However, when it moved to Helen Zille’s home and then again to the Waterfront I fell out of the habit of going. However, on a weekend…

A night over at The Marly in Camps Bay

I am a Cape Townian born and bred but I actually spend very little time in Camps Bay or even any of the beaches at all. My night over in Camps Bay actually felt like a proper holiday because I got to explore a suburb I almost never visit! We arrived early and watched the…

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…
