These long weekends have been fantastic and spending a few days at our family farm is always good for soul, farm life is the best life. There is no better treatment than fresh air, nature, sleep, relaxation and family.
This is a list of my favourite farm activities.
My family love to cook – my dad and step mom make the most amazing food at the farm. This is due to having all the time in the world to focus on what to make next. From cooking to baking, a diet is always needed after a weekend away.
The best form of exercise is going for a long walk in the middle of the veld. Who doesn’t love the smell of fynbos and the bush. Its good for the legs and its good for the soul.
Be in nature – see the beauty it has to offer.
After a long hot walk – the best thing to do to cool down is swim in the river, jump off a cliff and bum slide down natural pools.
Sleep, read, sleep, read, eat, relax, repeat. This is what we do – pure bliss! In today’s fast paced and connected society it is hard to just get away and have a break from the mayhem. Never forget how important it is to just disconnect.
My dad in his later years has become the biggest record collector. Classic tunes are a must.
This is the most important of all – time to connect with your family. Catching up and being inspired by each other is never over rated. You can pick your friends but you can’t pick your family. They are blood, so give them all the love they deserve.
