Stellenbosch. – I was lucky enough to be included in this year’s ‪#‎Stellenblog‬ adventure, joining some phenomenal international bloggers and local media on a detailed tour of the Stellenbosch University Botanical Garden – US Botaniese Tuin, stopping in at De Warenmarkt for something to eat and then walking the oak lined lanes to drink in the street side living, public art and vibrant energy of town centre.

A closer look at the rich offerings with Curator Martin Smit. Love their interactive app at http://sun.gardenexplorer.org/ which will enhance your visit should you decide to explore on your own.

Such a great spot that offers a taste of craft produce from the valley.

From there we headed to L’Avenir Wine Estate & Country Lodge for the celebratory #Stellenblog party and an evening infused with jazz, soulful voices and African rhythm – not to mention an appropriate touch of French flair which more than matched by the the fine Stellenbosch Wine and food.
