Like golf, I used to believe that wine was reserved for the old and wealthy. My knowledge of wine came from the movie Sideways as did my resentment for merlot.
Stumbling back to the Protea Franschhoek after a day of perhaps too much wine and too much dine, I reflected on how great life was.
Before heading to Franschhoek, I stayed at the Protea Waterfront and the Protea Seapoint. Both were better than the DoubleTree, where I stayed last time I visited Cape Town, but neither were better than the Radisson Blu Waterfront. How would the Westin stack up?
Warning! Warning! Warning! Do not go shark cage diving in Gansbaai before reading this post.
If you're looking for the best steak in Johannesburg, local will point you to one of two places: The Butcher Shop in Sandton or its competitor, Grillhouse. I went to The Butcher Shop the last time I was in South Africa and loved it. On this occasion, I decided to give Grillhouse a try.
If you're looking for a good laugh, buy a huge pumba and put it in the overhead without closing the bin.
