24 Hours in Constantia

24 Hours in Constantia

We arrived into glorious sunshine - not bad for winter in Cape Town! Table Mountain was visible in all her glory and the Cape Town suburbs were looking lush. It was a very easy and quick journey from the airport to Glen Avon Lodge - a mere 25 minutes and we were turning off of Strawberry Lane in Constantia and buzzing on the intercom to enter the courtyard at the lodge.

Press Trip Part 1

On hearing I would be taking a small group of journalists to South Africa for a week … I was torn. Torn between being totally excited to be staying in some of the country’s top boutique hotels or the simple pleasure of getting a rare full night’s sleep. As mum to 3 boys (including 2 year old twins!) a full night’s sleep sounded like a major highlight.

A Question Of Stats

The debate continues that the SAT stats are not accurate, is valid, but not new. I remember attending a conference in Johannesburg in 1994 when this subject was discussed in detail and a speaker from the Caribbean explained that people visiting more than one island would be counted more than once – a similar problem to the one we have always had in South Africa.
