I have to apologize for the extremely long break from writing anything! But I have to admit – I’ve been extremely busy. First off we continued with our travels and the last two weeks of my stay in Belgium was crammed with packing, visiting a few last places I’ve wanted to see in Brussels (and I didn’t even get to half of them) and of course touring a last few European countries. Luckily, my long absence has left me with several stories to tell and more photos to share!
But our time in Kleinmond was well spent. Not only was it so nice to spend time with my parents after three months of only Skype video calls but we were also soaking up the warm South African sun (which was definitely something I’ve really missed during my stay in Europe).

Our holidays in Kleinmond are always filled with days out in the sun, long walks among the fynbos and the coast, hiking, going to the beach, sleeping in and midday naps as well as preparing and eating delicious meals. The photos below are of our Grecian inspired meal, consisting of fresh pita, dolmades, freshly made tzatziki, olives, orange flavoured hummus, different souvlaki and a delicious salad (I will soon post the recipes!)

We had a nice day out on the ocean where we caught some crayfish. It was a long process but time flew by while I soaked in the sun, taking in the beautiful scenery, cocktail in hand. After we’ve caught 20 big crayfish we returned to shore – more than 3 hours later (which, to me, felt like an hour)!

So this past weekend we finally had our crayfish braai where we prepared some delicious food to complement the delicate taste of the crayfish. I will soon post photos and details about our Kingly feast.
So, I am back and ready to tackle my blog head on. Be prepared to expect some more travelling memories and experiences, what my home country has to offer as well as several food-related posts!
Have you ever caught your own crayfish? And do you have a favourite family holiday destination?
