Ala Gypsy: Lovely long weekend......


We have a lovely long weekend of 5 days here in South Africa.......being sorry for myself that I am not one of the lucky one`s that is going to the sea or the Game Farm or a holiday resort (I won`t tell everyone that I was waiting till the last moment and couldn`t get ANY reservations....)......I made the best of it and organised exciting trips for every day......

Yesterday was Mall Day (Megan`s choice...)....glad hubby wasn`t here.....we did lots and lots of shopping.......and had a ball

Today we are going to visit the Oriental Plaza again ...I blogged about it a while back.....I need some material and some braids and ribbons and there`s no better place than this.....and above all.....it`s an exciting experience........

I have to hurry this post.....get ready.....and go........

You don't need to go far away to enjoy a long weekend. Staying home can be just as fun. Have a good one,

Sometimes the best trips and adventures are those close to home. It's all in the attitude, as you know.

Your Oriental Plaza sounds divine. It's always wonderful to go out and be inspired by lots of amazing colors, textures, and "wow, look at that's"!! Hope you have a thrilling time....and come home with a bag of new goodies and a head full of all sorts of creative ideas!

What a fun time you must have had. I don't mind traveling without reservations. I like the spontanaity of finding shelter as I go. But not so, DH. Oh well, I can live with it. I checked out that Plaza earlier. Fascinating place. Just had a friend in S.A. last month. And another last year. I think I need to travel to YOU. They loved their adventures.

Looking forward to seeing all the treasures you brought home that you mentioned in today's post.
