friends of mine are going to die laaitjie in robertson for a weekend away.

Die Laaitjie is so called as it nestles in the smallest and last of the Dassieshoek valleys in the Langeberg mountains. Despite being so completely remote, the farm is only 7 kilometres from the centre of Robertson. The farm is situated alone in a bowl made by the surrounding mountains. 25 Ha of the farm consists of peach, pear and apricot trees, all of which fill the valley with colourful blossoms during the spring months. The mountains themselves are criss-crossed with hiking, walking and horse-riding trails suitable for all levels of expertise. Enjoy a gentle stroll to the river before breakfast, or spend a whole day exploring the ravines.

but the fact that an old car always looks so much radder to me than anything else on the road outweighs all the negatives. everytime i see one (whether it’s a morris minor or a karmann ghia) i do a double take and usually swoon under my breath – or loud enough for the owner of the car to smirk at me in that knowing way people who own vintage cars do.
