This weekend I just wanted to get away from the city. So we packed up, rolled up our tents and sleeping bags, and went on a road trip. Destination: Greyton. It is only a 1.5 hour drive from Cape Town. This small town is heavenly, and filled with beautiful shops and restaurants. You can walk around and have breakfast and then tea and cheesecake right after at the many gorgeous delis and restaurants (which is what we did) I highly recommend Abbey Rose. You can camp at the Blue Hippo (on the cheap) or choose from the many B&B’s and guesthouses in Greyton if camping isn’t your thing. The Blue hippo is a retreat with horses and a 2 hectare dam for swimming, it is absolute bliss. That’s us having a picnic (did I mention they have a tipi village?) 🙂
