Getaway Without Getting Away

You know how sometimes you just wish you could get away from the city¬† for a little bit but there’s no time? Well this past weekend I found a bit of a sanctuary in Johannesburg, Northcliff to be exact. I know I was as surprised as you are.

My friends I give you Morrells Boutique Estate, a guest house/ event venue which has the cutest bistro to top of the old school french vibe they have going on. For a couple of days or hours you’ll feel like you’ve left the city for a little bit.

 

The Bistro

Lunch wash served: Black truffle chicken with parmaham with some fancy named veggies.

Baked vanilla cheesecake with strawberries and honeycomb.

 

Out and About

This weekend we braved the cold cold Joburg winter to check out the Winter Sculpture Fair held at Nirox Sculpture Park, you know to take in some culture as one does. We saw some interesting pieces, ate some good food and broke the no-fun-can-be-had-outdoors-in-winter curse.

*Sidenote I need to check this place out in summer because if its this pretty in winter can you imagine what it looks like in summer.
