Aah the open road... My little Golf has carried me from coast to coast, from Jo'burg-to-Durban-to-Cape Town and from A to Z more times than I can count. I have always enjoyed discovering a different route and in the past this has lead me to the marvels of a Karoo gem like the Owl House, or the pleasant surprise that Bloem actually has a bubbly nightlife!
