Best of Both at Arabella Hotel and Spa on My Lime Boots

  The best of both, a great idea to include a little bit of this and a touch of that; or something along those lines. I recently headed past Gordons Bay and along Clarens Drive, in the company of my travel buddy The Roaming Giraffe as we made our way to the Arabella Hotel and Spa […]

A night under the Karoo stars on My Lime Boots

  “Come to Samara Ryan, the wildlife experience is something else.” “The Manor House will blow you away” they continued. These and many more messages kept coming through until I thought it may just be written in the stars that I should make my way to the Great Karoo and take in all that I […]

My Bush Education in Hoedspruit on My Lime Boots

  So I’ve been on somewhat of a mission to up my bush experience over the last two years or so. I’ve taken every opportunity to explore, with a view to better understand exactly what it is about the bush, that has so many of my fellow country-persons hooked. The search continues.   Needless to […]

In The Style of White at Fancourt on My Lime Boots

  I’ve never been to Fancourt, located in the heart of the Garden Route in the picture-perfect town of George.

My Ford Mustang Road Trip Adventure Part 1 on My Lime Boots

“Dust off your passport and be at the airport on Monday morning at 9”, so came the instructions.   Followed by a rather cryptic email “do you enjoy horse riding” and “decide between Monster Rolling and abseiling”. What is Monster Rolling anyway?   I knew we were off on a road trip with Ford South […]

The Light House Boutique Suites

HAMPTON’S INSPIRED LUXURY   I have been to Paarl many times in my life.   No, I lie, I have travelled through Paarl many times in my life; my experiences in this town occasionally peppered with outings to the local movie house while on extended work trips to nearby Tulbagh. So, to be honest, I […]

Come Fly With Me on Mango Airlines on My Lime Boots

COME FLY WITH ME   “Come fly with me, let’s float down to Peru…” as we are enticed by Frank and, of late, by Michael. That familiar song always brings a smile to my face and a slight tap to my foot. Well, in this case, I went floating all the way down to Durban, […]
