There’s a special place in the Free State (one of our South African provinces) where I go to recharge. It is a place that gets my creative juices flowing. A place where I go when I need silence to create and to write. A little village that just celebrated its centenary. Surrounded by sandstone hills and with the majestic Maluti mountains as backdrop, moss green during summer and occasionally snow-clad in winter, this little town isn’t far from the Lesotho border and close to the only two ski resorts in Southern Africa. A hamlet where each of the weekend cottages which are sporadically being built here, is a shining example of experimental, eco-friendly and non-mainstream architecture. This is Rosendal.
Is there a specific place that talks to your heart and fuels your creativity? I’d love to hear about it! Please drop me a few lines on your way out.
Here are a few pictures. There's more to follow, so watch this space!
