I'm now back in the UK, and it's taking some getting used to. Fog, frost and darkness by 4pm were all things I managed to forget about completely in the warmth of South Africa. What a shock.
In my last week in SA I travelled along the Garden Route and saw some incredible places. This was the first place I stayed in the beautiful seaside resort of Hermanus. Norfolk Beach House was a treat, packed full of retro furniture and appliances, I will definitely be back one day!

Yesterday I went to Kirstenbosch gardens and basically just took a gazallion photos. The proteas were unreal. Seriously, they're so weird. I also got really into the Cycads - the tree dinosaurs (they've hardly changed since the Jurassic period) - and Aloes. All a bit other-worldly. I'm going to have t think of some way of using all the amazing shapes, and colours.
