Travel Inspiration By A Pro Trip Designer
Hotel Reviews, Southern Hemisphere
She’s baaaaack. Yup. After 12 years I finally return to the lovely Argentina. Much has changed since I studied abroad in Buenos Aires – so much so I have yet to lock on something truly familiar. Of course, I, too, have changed. No longer a twenty-year old student eager to prove my hardiness and passion for the hispanohablante world, I now travel with my family, including my 2-year old son. Instead of hunting out the perfect café or bar, I am on the lookout for playgrounds and grassy stretches. Fortunately the city is forthcoming on both searches, and even better, in the case of Palermo Soho, right alongside one another.

Looking not so hip with Table Mountain backdrop
What can I say? Cape Town is simply one of the more visually arresting spots on this planet. Where else can you get a mountain that mesmerizing and the melding of two ferocious seas? Yeah…nowhere. Just look at the dumb grin on my face! I was giddy and I remain entranced by the city today. I am hoping to return and do a book on South Africa someday soon….!
WINE TASTING IN THE CAPE WINELANDS
Just look at all dem glasses!
As part of my fabulous tour through South Africa, courtesy of Giltedge Travel, I got to sample some of the fabulous area wines. From Franschhoek to Stellenbosch to Constantia – I drank (clearly refusing to spit, I mean really!) my way merrily through the region.
A special treat was had at the Graham Beck wineries where we were invited aboard a riverboat lunch cruise complete with homemade pies, chocolate pudding and enough wine to have me contemplating an afternoon swim.
The pumpkin pie was a savory version and may just be the new new at my next Thanksgiving
