Matroosberg

This past weekend, Drew, Polly, Anomien, and I trekked off to Matroosberg for a weekend camping trip. Matroosberg is a private reserve two hours drive from Cape Town with one of the highest peaks in the area. We loaded up the Land Rover with all our gear and provisions for the weekend and headed out on the N1. […]

The Land of ZA

As you’ve surely noticed, I’ve taken somewhat of a hiatus from blogging since the family departed roughly 2 months ago. After their departure, life pretty much returned to normal. I got back into my routine and have busily been going about life here in Cape Town. As apart of operation IRON MAN 70.3, I’ve taken […]

Wegeners in ZA (Part 2)

After Pat’s grand start to blogging the family’s visit and promises of more entries from Curtis Sr., Curtis Jr., and Grace, your stuck with me finishing the trip. Please hold back your disappointment. I’ll pick back up the story with the family loading into the Defender on Monday morning. We were leaving Cape Town behind […]

Pat’s Take One of South Africa

For those who don’t know me I am Pat Wegener, mother of all the African explorers and wife to Curtis Sr. The following entry is my first and consist of my personal account of our family trip to visit my oldest son, Glenn, in Cape Town and beyond. You can tell by the title it […]

The Wegeners in ZA

Just finished my first day back to normal after a long goodbye at the Cape Town airport last night. Surprisingly, I won’t be recapping any of their trip or the past couple weeks. Everybody volunteered to write a blog entry describing a portion of the trip in the next couple days and I’ll post those […]

Local and Lekker

Despite disappointing news on my business visa, it’s been an incredible week back in Cape Town. My friend James from our church small group phoned me on the way back from Namibia asking me if he could crash his last few nights in Cape Town in my guest room. He was staying with a family […]

Visa Woes

It’s been an interesting couple days since getting back from the great Namibian wilderness. I’ve spent most of it at the Department of Home Affairs sorting out my visa situation. I’ve been gathering documents and paperwork for my RSA business visa since arriving in South Africa. I had printed off a checklist available on the […]

Border Run

My 90 day tourist visa expires June 25th so I have to leave South Africa! I’m headed out tomorrow morning for the Namibian border with my friend Dan in order to get another 90 day visa stamp. We’re planning on headed up the N7 to the border crossing at Vioolsdrif and continuing onto Fish River […]

Revised Cape Town Top 10

It’s been roughly two months since I first counted down my favorite 10 things about Cape Town. I’ve got to knock out quite a bit of exploring and some old favorites have grown on me while others hold less appeal than before … Here’s the fallout: No longer ranked: Hillsong Church, Robben Island, Greenpoint Common, Land Rover sightings, […]

Table Mountain Hike

Table Mountain looms large over the Western Cape. It’s the No. 1 attraction in every guidebook and for reasons unknown I had yet to take the cable car or one of the trails to the summit. James, one of the guys in my small group, asked me if I wanted to hike Platteklip Gorge to […]
