The Spa House – Places to Stay…

Set on the hillside of Hout Bay in Cape Town is the most gorgeous villa I have seen in ages! The Spa House is a recent design award winner for incorporating the environment, and is a beautiful celebration of light, space and tranquil living… (plus it has a spa, did I mention?)

I’m a bit of a sucker for gorgeous homes and decor, and this amazing villa is really one of those outstanding places to stay in Cape Town – of which there are many. But, seriously, imagine having your own spa, steam room and sauna? amazeballs.

Here are some pics to be whisked away by…

I Love You Cape Town! I’m Showing You Off!

The last few months I’ve been riding my black and yellow Scott bike around some of the most beautiful coastal routes in the world – the Cape Peninsula! It makes me gobsmacked just how gorgeous Cape Town really is…from the closeness of the wilderness to my house, to the colours of the sea and the diversity on the mountain…

It’s also the fragrances, the textural layers, the vibrancy of the people, architecture, streets, food and more…As I prepare to ride my 4th Argus Cycle Tour this weekend (eek!) I’m dedicating this post to Cape Town. To all those who’ve never been, I invite you to visit – you’ll want to return again and again…

Cities to Visit and Dream About | Travel Inspiration

I’ve been blessed to travel a bit in my life, and have been so inspired by some of the cities I’ve had the opportunity to visit. It’s the memories that I really cherish that also makes them special to me – so when I see them on TV or in a movie or in a photo – I go, ‘Hey, I’ve been there!’

It’s a pretty cool feeling! I decided to share an Inspirational post today – Cities to visit (or perhaps just Dream about)Be inspired to travel, make memories and explore our world…

From The Good Girls Guide, a collection of amazing photos of cities I’ve personally visited or lived in… And if you’ve been to any, or want to share an incredible travel experience, let us know:
