2016 gave me a lot to think about and provided plenty of memories. Many of these I am pleased to leave behind. In a last effort to make the year count I took a road trip with my sister and was left with the same satisfaction after drinking a glass of good Chardonnay at the perfect temperature of 10°C – extremely happy!
Sisters have a special way of sharing life. We take the bad and turn it on its side by making silly impersonations and laughing a lot. Crazy, back slapping, throwing heads back laughing. I don’t tire of my sisters’ company and there is no need for continuous conversation. Enough with “Ehm” or “ahh” and a glance here and there. Having traveled internationally with my sisters I know that sisters just wanna have fun. On planes, trains, automobiles, hovercraft and ferries we’ve shared many jokes and paninis, making a group effort of clearing customs and carrying of luggage. We’ve ridiculed ourselves for our own amusement. We always make the most of our time out together. My recent two-day road trip with my sister took us to the following great places:
- Breakfast at Burgundy, Hermanus
- Hermanus Wine Village for indulging in a great variety of wine labels
- Hermanus Wine Route for a scenic tour of Hemel-en-Aarde vineyards
- Pinot Noir tasting at Newton Johnson
- Phenomenal tapas and wine pairing at Creation
We drove to Hermanus with a Volkswagen Polo and came back with a Toyota Rav. All symbolic of how much life can change spending a day with your sister!
