Nieu Bethesda. Sunset over the Valley and our Weekend.


Nieu Bethesda. – After a full day of getting to know the locals, we headed up to the lookout point overlooking the valley, the village below and the Compassberg Mountain in the distance.

We lit a fire for comfort despite the warm weather and cracked open a bottle of bubbly to be enjoyed with some local cheese. A contemplative moment. The sense of belonging. The desire to live here. At least for a few months a year.

Thank you all in Nieu Bethesda for accommodating us, for your time and generosity. We will continue to spread the Karoo love!




Chris and Jeffrey, who we had the pleasure of meeting at the guest house.


And to my travel companions too. Above, Eden and I.
