‘n Terugblik op ‘n nie-so-plastiekvrye-Julie.

To my English-speaking followers, thank you for popping in. I blog about a sustainable lifestyle in Afrikaans because I feel there are not nearly enough Afrikaans voices for the environment.  Ek weet hierdie artikel moes al ‘n week gelede op die blog gewees het. Ek moes egter my brose wens-ek-was-100%-nulvullis-ego bymekaarskraap om hierdie te skryf.…

Impala Salad with sweet and sour garlic sauce.

I love experimenting with ways to serve food, especially South African Venison. This is what came out this weekend. This recipe serves two, so you can adjust accordingly or make smaller portions for starters. What you need for the meat: 2 Impala or Springbuck tenderloins Worcester Sauce (If you are eating low-carb, like we are,…

Skryf Safari – Vrydagaand, Bordspeletjie tyd?

Ek sit hier plat op die mat en skryf vanaand. Die plaashuis waarin in ons bly het ‘n kaggel in ons slaapkamer en dis ‘n treffer nou dat die koue ons behoorlik beet het. Terwyl die vuur hier oorkant knetter en sis, dink ek oor bordspeletjies. My gunsteling is Scrabble. Die probleem is, hier is…

Summer Birding at Bakoorvlakte

I am a lover of summer. If I was a bird, I would definitely be some kind of migrant. Not only do I love the heat, the sun and the abundance of growth, but I also love travelling. I’d love to be flying where the sun is shining. I am still a little bit in…

Die koffie kafee, Coffee Talks Cafe is naby die Botaniese tuine en in Rayton kleinhoewe omgewing, Bloemfontein. Van buite af nooi ‘n…

Raising a Spotted Hyena – Part 3

This is the story of Crocuta continued. At around 8/9 months old, Crocuta was still living in and around camp with us. At this point I did not allow her in our house anymore, but on the odd occasion she did come in, she was like a happy child. Jumping on couches and bookshelves and…

Die Langehovenpark – Boeremark – Bloemfontein

Wat is nou meer landelik as ‘n lekker boeremark. Ek het die mark al so paar keer besoek, veral met die doel om vars vrugte en groente te vind, maar ook sommer net vir die lekker ervaring van vroeg opstaan en ‘n boeremark. Eerstens, as jy die mark wil besoek en regtig die volle ervaring…

Sunday and Summer Loveliness

We recently had some rain, and more rain upstream. The river that run’s through Bakoorvlakte flooded and everything is green. It’s my favourite time of the year, when everything is so lush. It always inspire me to walk around, explore and take pictures and also its a lovely time of the year to do bird…

Constantia Farm Stall

  I would like to share with you, one of my very favourite places to go to eat lunch and relax and shop. The Constantia Farm Stall. So, its almost time for the Cherry Festival. The official festival will be held in Ficksburg, but all around Ficksburg area things will start to happen as off…
