My favorite place I have ever been on this earth is hands down: South Africa. One specific day sticks out in my mind as one of the most memorable. Like a postcard burned into my mind, the beauty of Franschhoek flashes back to me immediately when looking at these photographs. It was a clear and beautiful day in June which was the height of South Africa’s winter. It was not more than 65 degrees and there was nothing but green wherever you looked. It reminded me of a scene from the Lord of the Rings. La Bourgogne was laid back and easy going, we were the only ones on the entire property aside from the owners and a couple of sweet dogs. Wine and dogs: two of some of my most favorite things! Could it get any better than that? I think not.
