Ahhhh much needed holiday in Camps Bay. So hubby and I have been married for 3 years and to celebrate we're taking a much-needed break and flying off to Camps Bay which has been described as a sort-of-yuppy-chic-village-by-the-ocean. They only have 1 hotel which is 5 star (the Bay) which I tried to book but well they were fully booked but kindly sent my enquiry out and !BANG! last week Monday morning there was a flood of emails from various guesthouses.How nice of the Bay Hotel - I didn't have to do any work! I was glad because we love Bed and Breakfast Guest Houses.

I picked Bateleur Rontree http://www.bateleurshouse.co.za/ (it was a five minute decision and so were the flights). Well it was the first email I received so I just went with it. Usually I research and plan ahead and buy a travel guide and trawl tripadvisor.com. This time I was impulsive and all I knew was I want to go to the Biscuit Mill and have some sort of treatment from the Twelve Apostles spa's complicated menu. The hubby tried to book that as a surprise but he didn't know what to choose from the treatment menu. I don't know what to choose from the menu!
I usually ask Nisha from Flying Buddha to organize holidays but she advised me that for local trips it's much cheaper to do it on your own (so honest!) - but she is the best for any flights and for any overseas travel. Anyway I won't be blogging for about two weeks .
I am so happy ! Hubby hasn't been to Cape Town and I haven't been for a holiday. We've been to the Cape together for a vacation- Nature's Valley , Plett, Knysa and thereabouts but not to Cape Town for a good proper holiday. I've been twice for a wedding, once for some oral microbiology conference and we stayed at the Vineyard (http://www.vineyard.co.za/) which is beautiful and also in Green Point at a really snazz hotel whose name totally escapes me - we surfed in Muizenberg and went to lots of nice places but it definitely wasn't a holiday! Oh yes the hotel was called the Rockwell All Suite Hotel http://www.rockwellhotel.co.za/), although we also went to Mandela Rhodes Place (http://www.mandelarhodesplace.co.za/) and O on Kloof (http://www.oonkloof.co.za/)
