Knysna, you have my heart.

I’m not feeling well. I went to the doctor this morning cos I was feeling covid-y and sure enough my results came back positive. I’ve been at home feeling sorry for myself and craving really delicious seafood pasta for comfort. I eat for comfort sometimes and today a nice and warm plate of seafood pasta would feel like my mother’s hugs.

When my boyfriend died we’d just come back from holiday in Knysna. That was easily one of my top 3 vacations. Boyfriend and I always had fun on our baecations and Knysna did not disappoint. One thing that stands out for me about that trip in particular is how delicious all the meals were. I felt like I was on the Eat part of my “Eat, pray, love” journey.

I generally like to stick to seafood when I’m in coastal towns because everything else I can have in landlocked Jo’burg. Jo’burg doesn’t have nice seafood anyway. So I was ordering seafood dishes only and man, they did not disappoint. I’m telling you EVERYTHING was delicious. Food has never stood out for me the way it did on that trip. My boyfriend and I had so much fun man!

The views were also pretty!

I’m really missing Knysna a lot today. We were so happy on that trip. I drank so much bubbly cos that’s my happy drink. There was just lots of eating in general.

I’m tempted to go back to Knsyna alone. That place is truly beautiful. I want to explore the whole of the Western Cape some day. I’ll be going through my pictures again and reminiscing while I’m stuck at home alone for the next 12 days.

Knysna baby, you captured my heart.
