SIRMIONE, LAKE GARDA – ITALY

This post is a simple, light-hearted travel inspired piece and sadly, some pictures of the last day spent in Italy before heading back home. As many of you know, Italy has some of the most beautiful lakes and we were fortunate to spend some time in a little place called the “Old Town” of Sirmione, which is located on the southern shores of Lake Garda. This pretty town is near the end of a long peninsula that juts out into the lake and has narrow winding streets, beautiful old houses and an old moated castle of the Scaliger family.

It was one of our favourite places that we visited in Italy, and hope to go back sometime soon.

ARCHITECTURE – MILAN, ITALY

South Africa is undergoing a bitterly cold spell at the moment and I find myself reminiscing over our Italy trip earlier this year. Only one night was spent in Milan, and it was far from enough time to explore this vibrant and cosmopolitan city. We specifically went to watch an Opera at the Teatro alla Scala and were absolutely blown away, not only by the performance, but by the beautiful architecture and attention to detail. Milan itself is abundant in established architectural masterpieces and in so many ways still so old fashioned yet completely contrasted with its first class fashion and design.

A city definitely worth visiting!

GRAHAMSTOWN ARTS FESTIVAL & PORT ALFRED

This past weekend Rick and I travelled down to the Grahamstown Arts Festival and Port Alfred. We spent the day at the festival on Saturday and the remaining few days meandering around Port Alfred, Kenton-On-Sea and Bushmans, as well as spending some quality time with my brother and his lovely girlfriend who live there. Every year we stay at the Bretton Beach Cottages, my folks and us kids have been staying there for as long as I can remember – nothing has changed.

Here are some pics I snapped.

Have a super weekend all!
