Franschhoek Weekend

May 24, 2013

In whats becoming an annual pilgramage for Michelle & I, we hit Franschoek last weekend for the Franschhoek Literary Festival. Mich was more serious about the talks than me, but Franschoek is an awesome destination regardless of the excuse. Especially in Autumn!

We worked out that for the past 12 years we’ve been living in Cape Town, the place we have gone away to most is Franschoek. Luckily, for the past few trips, we have found a stunning little log cabin to stay in at an awesome spot called Otter’s Bend Lodge.

At the top of Franschoek Pass is the Mont Rochelle Nature Reserve in which we’ve done many cool day hikes.
