We have been super lucky this year as our winter has been fairly mild and dry but that doesn’t mean we can let our guard down! I still find myself waking up in the night hoping that the orange glow in the room is from the blazing sun rather than the sinister glare of the London sodium streetlights. And now with Easter fast approaching (errm, where did the last 3 months go anyone?), I find myself missing the familiarity of home. Even though I have been here for 7 years, nothing beats that feeling of the airplane coming around the side of Table Mountain, or walking through the airport and hearing your own familiar accent, or even taking your first breath of home air! There is no other word for it, I am pining! I thought I would humour myself by looking for the perfect South African retreat, the very famous Spier Wine Estate will do nicely! Can you believe this beautiful estate has been established since 1692!
