Weekend road trips-explore beautiful WC!
Posted June 12th, 2012 - 7:18 pm by from Stellenbosch, South Africa (Permalink)
Hi guys,
Also moved to the Helderberg area a few months ago and starting to seriously explore over the weekends and having a look around. I have a car, so just looking for other CSers to fill the rest of the seats :)
This Saturday, want to go to Old Biscuit Mill Market in Cape Town and Sunday, helping in a homeless shelter with food service.
So, let me know if you want to come along or have a good idea for another time.

Hey Marica!

I'm doing an internship in Stellenbosch and I'm leaving July 1st but super keen to explore a bit before then! I've only been to Cape Town but would love to see a park or do some hiking - or pretty much have an adventure anywhere! Let me know if you're doing for a trip in the next couple of weekends! :)

I absolutely love the Biscuit Mill, unfortunately I won't be able to fill one of you seats....

Can you please provide me with the details of the 'soup kitchen' on Sunday...

Thanks and enjoy your Monday.... :)

Hi Leonie,
Sorry I'm only getting back to you now, however I was quite ill with bronchitis. I'll send you the information when they need help again in the soup kitchen, otherwise google it: Cape Town MES

And what are you planning for this coming weekend? Always keen to join, though mother-in-law is visiting currently so not that easy for me. :)

Other ideas, shooting from the hip, might be wine tasting - whether at farms or just at someone's house -, a hike up a mountain, just meeting up for a drink and supper (see the other "Social?" thread), a picnic at Spier or a bring-your-own picnic at the 'hangbrug' field in Stell, a potluck dinner at someone's place, a learn-to-surf (winter!) session at Muizenberg or even a game of amateur soccer..

Wow, Abraham, that sounds great! This coming weekend it's my turn to man the office, however, I'll keep you posted! I see you're form Paarl? I work there 2e a week, maybe you guys can show me around some, looks like a lovely town!

Okay, keep us all posted.
Nope, we're from Stellenbosch, and though Paarl is nice, Stell is wonderful! Safest location info to believe is at the top middle of someone's profile next to the map, the 'last login' location info isn't always accurate, based on IP addresses so only somewhat and sometimes true. :) Cheers!
