A weekend with the fairies


Hello lovelies. I'm sorry it's been a while since I last posted, I've been a little busy with uni work. Some of you may know that I spent a month volunteering in South Africa and I wanted to share one of my weekend trips with you.
So this was the last weekend that I was in South Africa and it was a bit of a last minute plan. Which sometimes are the best kind of plans. So there were 10 of us in total and half of us hopped on a minibus and the other 5 took a hired car. It took about 3 hours to get there which wound't have been to bad if I wasn't so hungover, oops. 


When we arrived we checked into our hostel, Away with the fairies, which also only cost £9 each for the night and was shared between 8 of us. The beds weren't exactly the comfiest but I wasn't complaining for that price. The hostel was a pretty cool place complete with hippies walking around without any shoes. They also had really good freshly baked pizza which made me really happy cause I fricking love pizza.



This was a pretty cool map of Hogsback which was in the main entrance hall of the hostel which I thought was a really creative idea.

When we arrived it was already lunch time so obviously once we had checked in we went straight to find some food. There wasn't exactly many options but we did find a nice place called the Butterfly Bistro and it was petty cute. If I'm honest I was not a fan of the food and the wait was nearly an hour which is a lot longer than I'm used to and I was so hungry that I had the shakes really bad, so was a little impatient.

So you may or may not have heard of the bathtub with a view, I hand't until I booked this trip. But it really is a bathtub with a view, not sure you'd really want to bath in it though. But the view is absolutely amazing and is definitely worth visiting. You can even book a time slot to get the bath to yourself at the hostel.

One of the main reasons for going to Hogsback was to see the waterfalls. Turns out 2 of the 3 waterfalls were really small that I didn't actually realise that they were the waterfall. But the third one was pretty cool and you can see by the smile on my face that I did really enjoy it. Next time I think I'm going to have to do some more research to know what to expect, although leaving it as a surprise is nice. 


I hope you enjoyed my post. Let me know in the comments of you have been to Hogsback as well. You can follow me on Instagram at Blogger_Rachael and twitter @rachyrachh1. You can also Follow my blog with Bloglovin
