Take in the view…

So, it has been a while since what has been dubbed “the babymoon” but this cold weather is making me reminisce and long to be back on the beach. My husband and I spent an amazing 10 days in the Transkei, Wild Coast, travelling to the most incredible, secluded spots ever. If you haven’t travelled to the Transkei – you need to do it, like yesterday! it’s always been one of my favourite holiday destinations. Here is a snapshot of some of the amazing views that we woke up to and were in awe of!

Our first stop was Wild Lubanzi Backpackers – perched on a hill in the middle of nowhere. Fresh bread baked daily, lovely company and as always, some feline friends!

Our second stop (the luxurious pitstop) was Umngazi River Bungalows – we were treated like royalty; buffet meals, tea in between meals, drinks by the pool and stunning weather.

Our final stop was literally off the beaten track… The perfect view, surrounded by just a few rural huts, a cottage with hot running water, a gas stove and fridge but no lights… Playing cards by candle light and staring up at the brightest stars I have ever seen. This was the ultimate place to relax, I would recommend it to anyone!
