{Dullstroom} Weekend out of the hustle and bustle

2016 started out with a bang and we (hubby and i) have since been busy from the time the clock clicked over from 2015 to 2016. One of our biggest resolutions for this year is to make more time for each other. This resolution has not been too difficult for us and it probably means we will be taking as many weekends as we can to dedicate more time to each other.  

Last weekend we took some time out to get out, get some fresh air by popping in in Dullstroom.  This was a fairly impromptu decision for us but a much needed break away from the hustle and bustle in Joburg. 

We had such a wonderful time without cellphone reception. We spent our weekend appreciating the beautiful mountains, We were able to spot a few shooting stars in the evenings, took a bush bath  and we went for a long hike up the mountain one morning.

We booked accommodation at a little four star lodge a little out of the way of the town of Dullstroom (Forest Creek Lodge). We chose to go the self-catering route (this time around was a matter of preference) but you can always choose to book a suite with catering included. 

We stayed in the beach house and were rewarded with the magnificent view of the mountains surrounding us (shown above)

All in all thiis weekend away was just not long enough!
