The First Tour Day

I'm gonna categorize these  post day-by-day, of a week long tour.

Here is Google Maps so that you can see where my different destinations are.

We Went to Hartenbos in the Western-Cape, South Africa on the first day.

This was our schedule:

6:30  Wake up
7:00   Religion (Pray etc)
7:15   Breakfast
8:15   Depart
9:00   Redberry Farm (check out this unmissable place here)
13:00 Lunch
14:00 Hartenbos Waterworld & Heated swimming pool (also see here *sorry the site is in afrikaans* )

What I can basically tell you out my own experience, it was so fun. The Strawberry picking was amazing with there being this huge maze inside where you can delightfully get lost in, and the Waterworld was daringly thrilling!  I never want to grow up!

Excuses and apologies

Now, I realize that I am a Scum for not writing on here for 10 days. But in my dogged defense  I went on a tour and when I came back, I was sent off to school. THEN, the electricity went off. Capoosh. Then, when it came back on, it started raining. The rain broke our Wireless transmitter. Now (for how long?) everything is back to normal.

Now, I shall relate my amazeballs tour. I've labeled this post under #southcapetour so click on the label underneath to see my whole journey. It's so good to write again!

Bum Muffles

As you all probably know by now, I post about the most random topics that have ever surfaced into my mind. Here is a particularly weird early morning quirk.
Whilst my family and I were having our after breakfast tea, this dialogue was present...

Charlotta: My bum muffles hurt...
Oops! Bum Muscles...

Mother: Muffles... A silent fart! (uproarious laughter)

Sister: Like when you think the cat or dog has done it!

Why have I told you this? Because I honestly don't think you will read it anywhere else.

Bum Muffles!

ps. I'm sorry if this offends some old bags - get over yourself!

My Dream

Last Night I had a puzzling dream...
This is all true. No Lie.

My mother was training me as a swimmer. We were at a gala at a lake in Africa. I was fast, so I came first. Whilst I was waiting for my competitors to finish, I noticed a old man who had given up and was flailing about on a orange dingy. I asked my mother what his name was, and she replied with a strange, "Figs". I started swimming towards him, but before I could shout for help, another dingy with a wild, psychopathic woman was speeding towards me! In a very dream-like fashion, when she hit me, I flopped onto the dingy and rode with her. I looked at her suspiciously and hoped she would not abduct me in the process.  When I turned around, I saw we were heading to a watery doom!. In front of us, Figs was doing 360 degree turns at high speed. When we connected  I got squished between the two boats, turning around and around. Again and Again.

And then it ended.

Bran Muffins :)

Recipe for Bran Muffins:

Makes 12


  • 750 ml bran
  • 250 ml warm "rooibos" (SA tea, which translates to "red tea", try any fancy tea to your taste)
  • 180 ml brown sugar
  • 100 ml canola-oil
  • 250 ml cake flour
  • 250 - 375 ml whole wheat flour
  • pinch salt
  • 125 ml currants (which I didn't use :)
  • 125 ml bashed pecan nuts
  • 12 ml bicarbonate of soda
  • 60 ml buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 60 ml sesame seeds
  • 60 ml roasted sunflower seeds

Now, Work!

Preheat the oven to 180 C and spray a muffin tin which has 12 hollows

1. Mix the Bran, oil, tea and sugar in a big bowl and leave aside.

                                     2.Mix the cake flour, whole wheat flour, salt, currants and nuts. Then add this to the bran mix.

"Koek Meel" means cake flour in Afrikaans

Which we crushed in a coffee grinder

 3. Dissolve the soda in the buttermilk, then add the eggs. till you get...

4. Mix the bran mix and the buttermilk/eggs together. Don't "mix too much", cause otherwise the muffins get big tunnels.

5. Scoop it into the muffin tin till 2/3 full. Sprinkle the seeds on top and bake for 15 - 20 minutes, until ready.
