As you may have picked up on in previous posts, I enjoy a glass (or two) of wine. I especially enjoy it when it’s consumed in a celebratory fashion. So when offered the chance to experience Durbanville’s Feast Of The Grape festival with wine tasting, grape stomping and live music, I didn’t have to think twice!
I like Mumford and Sons. A lot. I have seen them perform in 3 of the 4 continents I have lived in. I once drove 510 miles in -5 degrees, to a sold out show in Philly in the hopes that the ticket scouts would be kind. Their $250 / ticket ‘price’ wasn’t kind so I had to drink wine instead. However, Mumford and Sons made up for it the next month in Montreal (and Philly is a pretty cool city anyway!)
This region is known not only for a large mountain and a (more) effective government than oner provinces, but also for the wine tasting, therefore no itinerary will be complete without spending time at a vineyard or two!
The cape wild flowers are one of the natural wonders of the world. The arid areas of the cape west coast and the semi desert of Namaqualand, transform into a floral wonderland.
