Weird how my last couple of nature vibes getaways seem to always be on the same weekend as Joburg fashion week, funny timing that. Anyway, some of you who have been around these parts for a while might know I love Western Cape outdoorsy nature vibes and the inevitable corny pics that follow. So here comes another one to enjoy or hate. As always, if you don’t enjoy that kinda stuff, chill, the fashion/art events will come again.
This past Saturday was Athi’s birthday, so the two of us decided to roadtrip it and spend the weekend at De Hoop Nature Reserve, which is a four hour drive from Cape Town. We stayed in cute little rondavels right on the edge of a 19km long vlei. Fucking awesome and so tranquil, amazing birdlife and animals, some of which are on the endangered species list, all chilling, grazing free range like. I must say though there was a moment where it was weird to have no tv/radio/internet, and to hear nothing but birds and Zebras. Awesome getaway though, and a brilliant way to recover from Friday night’s madness at the International R-Kelly Day (#IRKD) party we went to on Friday night. Learnt something new, second Friday of March every year is IRKD. You live and learn. And oh obviously I’ve now got a replacement camera for the one I lost last weekend, so yay I can get back to shooting again.
AND THE FRIDAY NIGHT BEFORE AT THE INTERNATIONAL R KELLY DAY PARTY AT A CLUB IN TOWN. CAN'T RECALL THE CLUB'S NAME AT THIS MOMENT
