Our visit to Tulbagh begins

A dam, a jetty, and a pretty blue mountain
We live in one of the most beautiful places in the world yet we so seldom break away from work long enough to unwind and enjoy what the Cape Province has to offer.

So, on a whim, I scoured a few online accommodation sites and booked two nights away in Tulbagh, a small town that's a short 121 kilometers from the City (here's a route map).

I took this photo at the guest house where we stayed - a rural estate about 3 kilometers outside the town. Over the next few days I'll share with you more of what we saw in and around Tulbagh.

    Tulbagh holds such a special place in my heart. That is where the family farm was before my grandparents passed away in 1986. I remember the family Christmases, holidays so well.

    Waterval (the farm) was sold a few years after and was turned into a guest farm aiming at corporate teambuilding, etc. Although the ydid some positive changes to the place, there are some that totally destroyed the fisade of the farmhouse.

    It is Jonathan – specifically if your intent is to get away from the city madness.

    Glen, I think I stayed over at Waterval once… about 2 years ago for a team building event. It sure is a pretty place. The light is exquisite.
