Our good wishes for everyone


This afternoon, in South Africa living a Travelife, I found this sign in the lobby of my hotel in the Cape winelands, when I checked in.



We rented a car in Cape Town downtown this morning, to begin ten days of driving around the winelands and along the Garden Route.

Of course, I planned everything including where to stay and eat.

THE BEST OF SOUTH AFRICA

At the Saxon Hotel in Johannesburg

And someone who knows about the best travel experiences in South Africa happened to see our itinerary for two weeks.

Then she said: "This is just about the most amazing trip I've ever seen."




From Cape Town, we drove along a picturesque road towards this boutique hotel in the winelands.

This reminded me of my first trip to Cape Town not too long ago, and what a wonderful time I'd had.

THREE TIMES LUCKY

As for this particular trip -- my third one to South Africa in 14 months -- it's been a truly amazing trip so far, and we're still only 1/4 of the way.

Keep posted for more stories on our never-endingly eventful Travelife soon.

It's just been so busy that I haven't had time to write. But this is all going back to normal today.

THE BEAUTIFUL AND THE QUIRKY



But back to this hotel, rated as one of the best in this area.

For some reason, there are a lot of positive thinking signs all over this beautiful hotel, full of modern art and quirky touches.

All of these signs made me smile in one way or another.



But none was lovelier than this one sign.

I'm reprinting a version of it, with a little bit of a Travelife philosophy included.
