Mosselbay Vibes

What a great time we have had in Mosselbay! Its one of our favourite places to come and chill, swim, surf and walk around. Kyle lived and worked here when he was younger so knows the area well and we also have some friends here so always great to reconnect and come back to have a proper relax session!

We stayed at the Point campsites which was lovely. Close to everything, safe, peaceful and going to sleep with the sound of waves every eve is an added bonus.

We have been enjoying riding our new bicycles a lot which has been fantastic for some added excersice and good clean fun. One particular journey comes to mind where we had spent the eve at friends for a lovely fish braai, saw that the weather was pulling in so finished our drinks and climbed on our bikes…. moments after leaving, the heavens opened up so we road home while it rained, just over a kilometre so not far at all, but such FUN! We were happy to make it back to OMvi though that is for sure!

We also spent quite a bit of time with our friends Doggies, Sabai and Emiko, two chocolate border collies who we love to death! Taking them for walks and swims is definitely a highlight for us as they love and appreciate it as much as we do taking them. Watching them swim is the best!

Overall we have only positive things to say about Mosselbay and recommend it to anyone who wants to really take things slowly and even get a little bored. Its the perfect place for doing a lot of nothing, but also a lot to do if you feel like adventuring!

NEXT STOP…. WILDERNESS πŸ™‚

Our Recent Adventures

This last week has been quite busy but in a goooood way! πŸ™‚ Kyle has been surfing, and with that got to see some Dolphins within meters from him, at the Inner Pool surf spot at The Point in Mosselbay! Such a beautiful feeling! Then moments after that a whale breached, as well as slapping his fins on the surface of the water for a few moments before disappearing into the deep abyss. We have also walked the town flat, exploring all the antique shops and just getting out and about by foot.

Then the weekend came where we went with some friends to an incredible house on the Kaaimans river, overlooking the river, with the river mouth in the distance. So beautiful!Β  We drank wine and danced, got loose and a little weird…. But had the BEST time with an amazing group of Garden Route friends! We love this place so much!

Then lastly, We got ourselves some bicycles so we can do some healthy activities and rides as there are some great places to explore by bike along the Garden route. More pics of these adventures coming soon πŸ™‚

 

Beautiful Montagu

We have spent two nights and 2 full days in the quaint and beautiful town of Montagu. What a clean and friendly town with many things to do, from hiking, to the warm water springs, basking in the sun and taking in the amazing views of mountains that reach into the sky! The mountains themselves are such a sight, you can see how the land has shifted and the bends and turns in the mountains themselves! We highly recommend a visit here! We also met some awesome boere couples who came to chat to us and view the inside of our van. They themselves also have motorhomes and the one elderly couple have been on the road for four months and plan to continue with this lifestyle for another three years before retiring to a farm up North. Quite inspiring as its good to know that people are doing this long term and not just for a quick weekend away, which is definitely our plan, living in a van for as long as we can!

Today we went on a beautiful hike between the mountains to Avalon springs where we popped in for a swim in the heated pools, then made our way up to a cave that was very high up. Worth the trip! Then made our way back to our campsite where we had another swim in a hot spring pool, caught up on some work and admin, while preparing a delicious veggie stew! A full and awesome day!

First Stop.. Klipkrans – Worcester

We left Cape Town yesterday on our first long drive with the Van. I will be honest, changing from a modern day car to a vehicle that is over 40 years old, has been quite the test and adjustment to make. We were stressed and even though we have done everything to ensure the van is safe, it is still a small truck that bounces and vibrates and plods along! But with this first drive, we reached our first destination and it was exactly what we needed. A beautiful setting next to the Breede River, at a campsite and game farm, called Klipkrans. It is basic but has everything we need! Fireplaces and little Braai’s, warm showers and good toilets. The river is majestic as fuck! The weather will be 32 degrees tomorrow so some swimming and tanning is happening. Yesterday and today we continued with making our van a home, the little touches and added decor to make it more comfy and homelike. Its been a great start to our trip and after months of moving, planning, working and getting ready for this trip, it has all been worth it so that we could unwind and relax with only the sounds of birds, crickets and frogs.

And so it begins….

As IΒ sit and type this, Shannon (my better and sexier half) is continuing on with packing up our home. We have spent the last two years in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Cape Town. It has been such an incredible time with both its ups and downs, but the main thing is, is we set out to come here and achieve some personal goals, which we have done, so now we are ready to move on and adopt a more simplistic way of life on the road. We would love for you to join us on this journey along the coast of South Africa and eventually further afield if all goes to plan.
