Over long weekends South Africans living inland tend to swarm to the sea, and Durban is a destination within reach. We are among those Durban residents who tend to take breaks in the opposite direction. Instead of heading for the mountains, for which a weekend is needed, we are able to get a total contrast in environment with an easy day trip to the Natal Midlands, and that’s where we went yet again yesterday.
We revisited one of the sites of my next book launch (when everything finally comes together) and then went on to a Pizzeria which has become very popular. Very pleasant – but in this case we are lucky enough to have an even better one five minutes away from home. Still, the change of altitude and air was refreshing. The temperature was particularly refreshing.
