• Reflections on 2 months of travel, and a farewell letter to Joburg

    Hello everyone! I haven’t had much time to really focus on the blog. I’m writing from the Slow Lounge at OR Tambo (I wish I could just move in here- I LOVE this place.) Our flight is delayed for an hour and a half- I’m secretly glad because I really wanted to write this post(…)

  • A home away from home in Durban

    It’s been close to 2 months since we moved out of our home, and since then we’ve been living out of bags, moving from one hotel to the next. My focus is luxury travel, and after a while 5 star chain hotels just turn into a blur. I know exactly what to expect, and nothing really(…)

  • Get Your Cricket Fix This Summer at Bidvest Wanderers Stadium

    While I wouldn’t call myself a sports fanatic, I do love going to cricket matches. Probably because they’re easy to understand, and what’s not to love about sunshine, beer and buff men? Bidvest Wanderers has loads of games happening in the 2014/2015 season, starting in September with the Sunfoil Series which is free. You can(…)

  • The perfect weekend getaway at Oaklands Country Manor in Drakensberg

    On 99% of my travels, my expectations are either met or the experience is below my expectations. Oaklands is probably the first place I’ve been to in ages that has exceeded my expectations to this extent. It’s easy to review super luxurious places that I’d never be able to afford in my personal capacity and(…)

How To Travel With A Man: The Guide For The Girl Who Wants To Do Everything

How To Travel With A Man: The Guide For The Girl Who Wants To Do Everything

Writing this post has been on my mind for years, but it took a very long time for me to perfect the art of Travelling With A Man. When I first met my husband, he thought that travelling was a waste of time and money and he had zero inclination to travel. Very quickly, the travel(…)

A Beginner’s Guide to Disney World

A Beginner’s Guide to Disney World

Hello everyone! I’m writing from high up in the air, en route to Vegas from a fab 2 days at Disney in Orlando. I felt this post was necessary ‘cos while there’s tons of info out on the net on what to do when you’re AT Disney, there’s not a whole lot available if you’re(…)

Club Med Bali Review

Club Med Bali Review

It feels strange to write about one holiday while I’m on another. I’m writing from Islamorada in Florida Keys at the moment, and while I normally don’t write on holiday, I’m going to be travelling for the next 6 weeks, so I need to pace myself and try and combine some of my normal life into(…)

Jozi’s New Mexican Hotspot: Perron in Illovo

Jozi’s New Mexican Hotspot: Perron in Illovo

Hello hello! Apologies for being so quiet, I’ve been living in a bubble that has been far away from reality. I got back from Europe yesterday and had to deal with my inbox, plus tons of admin ahead of our move to Singapore. There’s so much to do, but I’m loving not being at work(…)

The Most Authentic Cape Malay Koeksisters You’ll Find Outside of CT

The Most Authentic Cape Malay Koeksisters You’ll Find Outside of CT

Hello hello! I’m writing from my sister’s place, our temporary home. We arrived back from the US this morning and while we were coming “home”, it didn’t quite feel like that. I guess that’s cos we don’t have our own home in JHB anymore. It feels like we’re just passing through, which we are, I(…)

Top 5 “Coffices” in Jozi

Top 5 “Coffices” in Jozi

When I used to work (seems like a million years ago), all I ever wanted was to be able to work from home. Or in my case, a coffee shop. I love being out and about, and the idea of working around other people, in a nice environment was just a dream to me. One(…)

Rustic French Cuisine at Les Delices de France

Rustic French Cuisine at Les Delices de France

Know when you walk into a restaurant and immediately feel welcomed? It might have been the “bonjour” I got on arrival, but there’s something unpretentious, authentic and utterly charming about Les Delices de France. Admittedly, I don’t venture to the West Rand very often, but my meal at this restaurant definitely made the commute worth(…)

Review: Life Restaurant at Waterfall Corner

Review: Life Restaurant at Waterfall Corner

I’m no stranger to Life- I frequent the Hyde Park branch, always ordering the same thing (the prawn pizza- I love it!) I almost didn’t review the Waterfall restaurant at all because the menu is the same as that of Hyde Park’s, but I’m so glad I did because it has a completely different vibe.(…)

Tips for Moving Across The World

Tips for Moving Across The World

While the thought of moving across the world is very exciting, actually doing it- not so much. I’ve probably never been as stressed out in my life, so I thought I would share the tips that helped me along the way. 1. Passports I know, it sounds obvious, but my passport was almost full and(…)

A night with Madame Zingara

A night with Madame Zingara

I had such a great time last night at Madame Zingara at Montecasino. I’ve been a fan of them since they launched. If you don’t know about Madame Zingara yet or haven’t yet been to a show, you NEED to go. Basically it’s a dinner and show concept, but it also transports you into another(…)

Q&A With a Clairvoyant

Q&A With a Clairvoyant

Having a blog puts you out there. While this blog has brought me some amazing opportunities, I’ve also been criticized- it comes with the territory. One other thing that happens a lot is review requests. I’ve been asked to review an entire 5kg fish from a fishery, baby food, random guest lodges in the middle(…)

Funemployment- Here’s what I’ll be up to for the next 3 months, plus, the future of Jozilicious

Funemployment- Here’s what I’ll be up to for the next 3 months, plus, the future of Jozilicious

I thought I would be really really excited as it got closer to my last day, but instead, I’m quite sad- about leaving the people, not the job. Spending 8 hours a day with the same people for 4 years is bound to build relationships, and I’m really going to miss the people I work(…)
