My apologies for some of the blurry photos as it seems as if my camera lens was dirty when some pictures were taken. L

 

Having met Rolf Jahrnes before when he toured with me close on to 2 years ago it was easy for me to renew acquaintances with him as well make a new acquaintance of Bjorn when I arrive\d at their apartment at Number 1 Victoria Drive in Camps Bay. I first took in their wonderful apartment and then we discussed our plans for a winelands tour

Rolf insisted on having a picture taken of his room so that his wife Marina could see this back home

We stopped in at Craigrownie guesthouse where Bjorn, Nicky (Craigrownie marketing) and Rolf posed in the entrance hall for this picture

 

After our visit to Craigrownie we went to my apartment to fetch some cider and a bottle of wine for dinner that evening. We then travelled to Plattekloof where we took in the magnificent vista of the Cape Town area. Thereafter we went to the Rupert and Rothschild winefarm where we participated in a lovely winetasting with Linda Goliath.

After our visit to R&R we travelled to Franschhoek where we took in the magnificent scenery of the Franschhoek Valley. We then went to La Grange restaurant for lunch an followed this visit with a stop in at the Franschhoek Food factory where we bought some chocolates for dessert. We then travelled to Stellenbosch where we fist went to pay a visit to the black township of Kaya Mandi.

After our visit to Kaya Mandi we travelled through Stellenbosch on a short tour and then moved on to Spier Estate where we went to take a look at the Cheetahs at the Cheetah FoundationWe then returned to Cape Town and visited the Africa Cafe where we had a fabulous African feast.

Rolf and Bjorn were an absolute pleasure to tour with. They were wonderful gentlemen who were always in quest of knowledge as to how we as South Africans live and intend letting the world know that our country is one of the most wonderful lands of the world. Their company was superb and all in all we had a fantastic tour which only at the end of the day we realised went past 14 hours of touring. What a joy the day truly was.

Rolf and Bjorn - THANK YOU
