Stellar Day

On Saturday some friends and I quite spontaneously decided to have lunch in Stellenbosch. As we drove closer to our destination I already felt myself relaxing while looking at the beautiful views. We had a delicious lunch and then explored a little. Unfortunately we arrived when many shops were already closed, ie. 2pm. I found this weird but the highlight of my day was walking through the tree-lined streets and admiring the architecture. I don’t know much about architecture but I really appreciate the beauty of it.

Stellenbosch buildings

All these pictures were taken at my favourite buildings of the day. Each was very different and beautiful in their own way. To the people living in Stellenbosch, you’re very lucky. I would love to enjoy this little town everyday.

  3. Spontaneous trips are the best. I love architecture. I would love to take a class in history and aesthetics of architecture just to understand it more. Your outfit is super adorable. You can’t go wrong with some Parisian colors! Thanks for your lovely comment on my 200th post, you are so kind! I’ve missed reading blogs, I was so bad over the summer!
