Highlight on Crossways Farm Village in Port Elizabeth, South Africa.

Throwback to Crossways Country Kitchen in South Africa! It’s out in the countryside of a region called “Nelson Mandela Bay”- named after, you guessed it! Google this part of South Africa, it’s very pretty. This particular country restaurant offers delicious breakfast & lunch options and is situated in fresh, open green hills. I especially enjoyed the crispy pork belly with sweet potato & butternut mash (R120 / $7).

Malibu Wines

I spent the day at Malibu Wines last weekend, it was pretty awesome. We took a whole bunch of snacks + enjoyed the California sun. You bring your own food as they don’t serve food at the venue. Live music on weekends is between 12-2pm and again at 3-5pm. The address is 31740 Mulholland Hwy, Malibu, CA. It’s a must-do when you visit LA! Valet parking will set you back $14, but entrance to the farm is free. There’s also a minimum of a one bottle purchase for groups of 2-4. It’s open Mondays-Sundays from 11am to 7pm. Give them a ring on (818) 865-0605 to make reservations.
