Vintage Graaf Reinet in South Africa

The traditional Karoo town of Graaf Reinet harks back to another time.

The buildings testament to the towns rich & varied history.


I have Dutch ancestry & have always had a fondness for iconic Cape Dutch architecture with its white facades & symmetrical design.

Lunch in town







I love nothing more than exploring towns on foot, camera in hand & in good company.

The town is home to several interesting vintage / antique shops that we enjoyed browsing. My home is an eclectic mix of old & new patterns, textures & items,  so browsing interesting shops are always a favourite past time.


We finished off our time with lunch on the covered veranda in Graaf Reinet. It meant I could indulge another favourite past time - people watching! I love human dynamics & can while away time just taking in my surroundings.


Do you have a favourite style of buildings?
