Idyllic Franschhoek

One of South Africa's most beautiful drives today, through Worcester to Franschhoek, via Du Toit's Pass.

Our favourite Guest Houses on this grand tour are Prince Albert's Dennehof and Erica's, nestling under the mountains at Franschhoek.

Relaxing at Erica's, Franschhoek

After a quick dip in the pool, we picnic-lunched under the trees at the nearby Mont Rochelle Wine Estate. Then back to Erica's to check email and the journal. Good to see that papers from Flotation '09 are now flowing in for the special issue, but apologies folks- I won't be dealing with them until next week, when we return to a very cold Cornwall.

More wine at Mont Rochelle


  1. Since I arrived in good old wet and cold Cornwall, I have been cheered up by looking at your blog and seeing the lovely scenery and beautiful weather your having. Hope to see you next week, w'll keep some rain for you!!
