Raspberry Mojitos | Cocktail Wednesdays

 I love cocktails so much, but I don’t drink them as much as I wish I could. If I go out into Stellenbosch I’m much more likely to get wine or cider or some sort of spirit mix, because a cocktail isn’t something that you normally pick up quickly at a bar – and the…

Platform One Eatery |Winters Drift

Last week my family and I took a trip to Elgin to visit Winters Drift Winery and have lunch at the restaurant there, called Platform One. It’s at the old Elgin Station, and is the most beautiful and peaceful setting for a lunch. We sat outside, which is literally right on the tracks and it was…
