Awesome blog. It was a great experience.

Thanks Marinda, it sure was magical.

Great blog Kim, loved reading about the different farms – sounds like a fantastic trip.

Thanks Kate, hopefully you can join me next time?

Would love that! Count me in 😉


I loved this blog, my husband and I did a road trip and you brought back such great memories. I also loved Darling. Thanks Kim

Thanks Kerry, not many people know of or get out to Darling, but definitely worth the trip, a special little town.

Great blog Kim and very interesting hearing about the many wine estates that you visited. I have been on the Franschhoek Wine Tram and it’s a great way to spend a day touring the different wineries and sampling some really great wines. I also had a fantastic 3 course lunch with wine pairings at Grande Provence, which I highly recommend. Your photos of the beautiful South African wine region are really lovely.

Thanks Jill, Grande Provence is a lovely estate, I also partook in a 3 course lunch and although I felt like I needed a wheelbarrow to cart me out afterwards, the food was amazing with the wine.
