That was 2017
2017 is one of those years where we can say we did a lot and enjoyed ourselves. Some of it has been blogged, some not. Read my next post for more on that.
Here’s a quick look back at 2017
Our first trip of the year was to France. the first time I have been to France. It was really a great get together with friends. Eating good food and sitting ’til the early hours near the beach drinking wine and enjoying ourselves.
We stayed at Blue Bayou, with the beach just a short walk away.
Flying in and out of Carcassonnne, La Cite, the old Citadel was a must for a visit.
Known for its naturist beach, which we didn’t visit, we had a short time there and took a boat trip, then experienced a bit of local take-away cuisine.
We visited the market in Valras Plage and then enjoyed cocktails with a beach view.
As always we found great food, and even tried that French delicacy, frog’s legs.
With family ties in SA, a long planned visit came together exactly as planned. That was a mixture of hectic days and relaxation by the sea.
Hermanus – Whales and Prawns
Having been in Hermanus once before, we had a long standing plan to visit. We were not disappointed!
Hermanus is in South Africa’s Western Cape area.
Hermanus – Winelands
A day trip into the Hermanus Winelands was a surprise find. A great day out.
Umdloti, north of Durban on South Africa’s kwaZulu-Natal coast provided a few days of tranquil getaway.
Visiting Durban while staying at Umdloti, we had a few good days in the area, visiting the beachfront, harbour and the Valley of a Thousand Hills.
Closer to Home
Of course it is not all about long trips. There’s a lot happening closer to home. Have a look.
Who knows. There are a lot of changes coming our way, so watch this space.
Wishing you all a very happy and prosperous 2018
