Country Living - Halfaampieskraal
Ok - so I definitely pendulate between wanting to be some chic urban dweller going to cool local events and knowing all the hip places* and wanting a nice quiet life on the countryside where I can go for long walks and I have a nice garden to care for, etc. Today, I'm definitely having a countryside moment. So just in case the countryside of next-door Virginia won't do, my mind has already bought a ticket to faraway South Africa, rented a car, and driven all the way to Halfaampieskraal...a wool, wheat, dairy farm with beautiful guest houses.
It has everything that I love: outdoor showers, en-suite showers just in case the weather isn't being cooperative, and extra comfy bed with fresh air flowing right in.
There's all things fresh, a pool to swim in, bike/hiking trails and a quaint nearby town, Napier, to explore the local scene.
*Note: unless knowing local farmer's markets, used furniture stores and hardware/garden stores has become the new chic/cool/hip thing- I certainly haven't become the urban dweller of my dreams.
