Rovos Rail with my Bestie

I will ​not ​be able to attest to it being ‘the most most luxurious train in the world’, as I’m not really a luxury-traveler in every sense of the word, but what I can most certainly attest to, is that Rovos Rail will be one of the rides of your life.

I wanted more than anything to recapture the romance and atmosphere of a bygone era and travel by rail, aboard this fabled train, through the sometimes hauntingly beautiful landscapes of my country, South Africa.

I thought long and hard about the reasons for not adding this journey to your list of things to do before you kick the bucket and I’ll list them below (in no particular order):

Here are some of my highlights in Instagram pictures as part of the #366DaysOfMakingSpace project.

#366DaysOfMakingSpace, day 42/366 This, let me assure you, is one of the very best ways to wake up.
