The Last Word Franschhoek

Truly was the holiday of a lifetime

I just wanted to drop you an e mail to say a very big thank you for organising such a wonderful trip for Matthew and I. It truly was the holiday of a lifetime, and I do not say that in a causal way.

What a stunning country you have. Everything surpassed my expectations. I could have happily stayed in Franshhoek ...
