Clarens, South Africa

I took a trip to Clarens, South Africa earlier this year and it made for a fun getaway.

   I was blessed to take a weekend getaway to Clarens, South Africa earlier this year.
It’s a quaint little town about 30 minutes from the border of Lesotho. Many older folks escape to Clarens for the weekend to golf, drink beer and shop.
Come take a tour of the town with me:

I lived at the Clarens Brewery:

I partook in this beer tasting:

The Cherry Red Cider and Indian Pale Ale were my  faves:

Cheesy but this cheese plate was off the chain:

Clarens has a lot of character for a small town:

It also has a lot of chocolate:

Chocolate makes me happy. Very happy!

As does chai tea:
Offer me a cup of some good chai tea and you can get just about anything out of me. True story.

I wanted to buy this skirt from this cute boutique called Madam Butterfly…
…but I needed transport to get home. My priorities are jacked up.

This mosaic thingamajiggerthingy was my motto for the weekend:

I saw "Ruby Tuesday":

This lasagna was so amazing that I wanted to bathe in it. I just woofed it down instead:

There was a township right before you get into the main square of town.  It was located across the street from a golf course:

   Clarens has a lot to offer and makes for the perfect weekend excursion. It was a cheap vacay, too. 
   Cost me around $200 US dollars to relax, drink, shop and have a good time.
   I liked it so much that I just might go back.


  1. That chocolate though....goodness. I'm living vicariously through you. I'm enjoying your blog entries.
