Welcome to my new blog

I have had a blog – called Grains of Sand – since the start of 2008. Over the years, I have written close to 1,000 blog posts, and uploaded almost 3 Gigs worth of images. Unfortunately, WordPress no longer offers an independent space upgrade, and my ‘old’ blog has almost reached capacity.

I have thus decided to create a new blog, specifically focusing on places to see and things to do in and around the Western Cape – and beyond. In the coming months and years, there will be many posts about some of the wonderful places to be visited and explored in our beautiful country.

Please join me on the journey.
