Cape Town foodie escapades: Clarke’s Bar & Dining Room Review

Affordable restaurant food seems ofttimes a myth, especially within the confines of one of the most cosmopolitan cities on this great continent.

Saturday! Sweet day of relaxation, sun and fun. I spent my Saturday (after shopping, obviously) catching up with old friends, at a new spot in town.

Cape Town foodie escapades: Asoka Restaurant Review

Pretty much a 9/10 folks There’s no way I could give Asoka Restaurant, Bar & Lounge anything else. It is an eye-catching, taste-bud tingling, stylish, and zen wonderland.

Turning up: The #InnerCityWineRoute Adventure 2.0

So the folks at Tuning the Vine couldn’t get enough of me, and the sentiment is shared. So I decided to brave the cobbled sidewalks of Cape Town’s CBD and experience the #InnerCityWineRoute once again – just to ensure my opinions weren’t a singularity.

Welcome to the new age!

Wherever you are, and whatever you are doing – know that I am thinking of you as we ring in 2016, from Africa. 2015 was an okay’ísh year for me. Beyond travelling via Abhu Dhabi, to London, 2015 was likely my most unproductive year. I liked that it was chill, but not doing anything academic…
