Little Paris in South Africa;)

We have a little bit of Paris in South Africa:) On the way to hartebeespoort dam there are many flea markets, antique shops, coffee shops etc.

French toast koffie kaffee is a quaint little place with a touch of Paris. There’s French music playing and there’s even a little Eiffel tower as well as a love lock bridge.

It’s really pretty and you wouldn’t want to leave here.

Budmarsh- Magaliesberg

Often you need to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and escape to a ‘world’ of peace and tranquillity. How amazing when that ‘world’ is just an hour away from Johannesburg:)
The surroundings are peaceful and tranquil….exactly what I needed after a very busy year. Picnic baskets are provided by Budmarsh so people can have picnics and relax on the lawns…Some go on hikes if they prefer….
Every corner of Budmarsh is surrounded by lavender plants…. Lavender is really calming and soothing…..

I enjoyed the peace and tranquility here and felt totally rejuvenated…

Back in the UK

I’m back in the UK, making more memories.  Been in Bournemouth for a week and I love Bournemouth Square, all my favourite stores are just around the corner as well as  Bournemouth Beach.   I love watching random people perform at Bournemouth Square. 

I have uploaded some pics of my UK trip…

London definitely has an energy that no other city has.  So many cultures, accents and so many people…its amazing:) The best part about being in the UK during this time of the year is the festive atmosphere.   Christmas lights on the streets and lots of Christmas sales.  You can just feel it, Xmas is around  the corner; )

When I’m in London I always go to Laduree and Harrods.  I’m always amazed at how massive Harrods is and I absolutely the macaroons at Laduree.  I also love the curries at Madhus in Harrods; )


Friday nights at Picadilly. ….

UK

I am back in the UK during their summer.  I’m really enjoying the late sunsets and I love their architecture. The weather in England is quite unpredictable though;) Will post more about my England trip soon. For now there are a few pictures below:)image

Natural history museum

I’ve been here on a Sunday. I have never seen such long queues ever before. We waited for about 45 minutes in the rain to get into the museum. Inside the museum, the architecture is absolutely, amazingly beautiful and it’s a huge museum so you need a few hours to go around the entire museum.

Laduree is such a pretty little store, you really wouldn’t want to leave. Love their macaroons and all the pastel colors.
