I previously wrote about San Diego a bunch of times here. Being from Nelson Mandela Bay in South Africa (the east coast), I’m used to the beach. By the way, if you’re new to my blog, I love to travel and write + take pictures of special moments along my travels. For more on African moments, I highly suggest: Chasing Elephants in Addo Elephant Park. (more…)
Now that I’m in Austin, I notice how similar the two cities are when it comes to their love for live music. In Cape Town, Skybok filmed many bars that were essentially stages for local artists to get a kick start into a competitive industry. (See my post on it here). It’s no different here in Austin, and that’s what makes both cities so creative + so appealing. After all, Cape Town + Austin are both among their country’s fastest growing cities respectively.
FYI: Austin is ranked by Forbes as America’s fastest growing city + Cape Town is South Africa’s 3rd fastest.
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).
Welcome to new blog followers, great to have you.
Took some arty shots of Sunday brunch at Four Seasons Austin….nice ideas for layout…..
