I promised lots of feedback on my roadtrip to the Overberg and I will, I promise – there’s loads more photos and stuff to write about. It’s just that I’ve been busy, sorry.

In the meantime, here’s a link to the blog entry on my other blog, about a unique little town in the middle of nowhere. I didn’t plan to go there but I made the detour and it was well worth it. The road was deserted, the fynbos* was divine, and I was car-bopping to lekker music … you know what car-bopping is, don’t you? It’s when you jiggle around to the music in your seat as you drive. You’ve done it, you know you have.

Elim – read the blog and find out who owns it, what the owners restrict, what the townspeople are famous for, and what two things it has that no other South African town has.


What I didn’t mention in the other blog is that Elim boasts of having one of the best schools in the Cape.


*fynbos – this is one example of the unique vegetation that we in the Western Cape are immensely proud of and love very much. It is the smallest in size but richest of all floral kingdoms on earth with over 9000 species, and counting.

About Francoise Armour

I run a small touring company (Tours du Cap) at the bottom of Africa, to show visitors the beauty and vibrant culture of the country I have lived in since my parents brought me here from France as a child. I enjoy taking photos and wish I had learnt to do it properly. I enjoy writing but don't do enough of it. I enjoy walking in the mountains that surround me and I marvel over the views and the flowers and the amazing rock formations. I have a small, cute, clever, black dog of indeterminable breed, named Vida, who reminds me regularly that walking and getting out is not only for when tourists want it.

All feedback welcome, so share your thoughts please!

A note to all accidental visitors:

I am not a photographer and do not claim to have any particular skills whatsoever in that department. I have enormous respect for those who can see the potential in a scene and can create a great photo. Good photography is an art, in my opinion.

I am just a happy snapper, I have no special lenses or accessories, my camera is very simple and it's usually best to leave the setting on auto.
