*This is not another hate thread or why you think a place is a dump. And mention a political party (negative), Race(ist), Corruption or Politics and you can help yourself to the door.*


Tera's post on Jozi made me realise the place people stay and what they enjoy about it is a different experience for each individual.

This made me think:

• what do you love about your town, city or region you live in. Your daily experiences, relaxation or a place to escape to. Nature and Wild Life. Restaurants. Architecture. Riding the bus or taxi. Office. Sports. Whatever!

• Extra points for photos (and only if you not under the influence).

You might just discover something next time you visit there or appreciate it from a different perspective.

I am planning (bucket list) to do a tour around/through South Africa some time in the near future and would love to make some stops, even if it is in Gautengaleng.

I'm in the Zululand Region.

This is 5 minutes from my house and they open 6am in the mornings (maybe even earlier). I come here early morning to have coffee. Lots of birdlife. Sometimes a croc.

I will post more later. There are just so much I love every day. Haven't even looked at coffee and pizza and the midlands and the City life.

I live in Bredell on a smallholding.

It's nice and quiet. There's a couple of chickens and horses on the property and the neighbour has these.

Compared to other areas in JHB the traffic is a breeze as well.

There's a nice driving range with a huge outdoor and indoor play area for the kids 5 mins from here to have a beer and the car washed.

Still close to schools, airport, hospitals and so on without it feeling like city life.

Yep, we like it. But moving to George in a few years. Thirty years in one town is long enough - We've seen a lot of changes and a lot of growth.

Eighty years ago:

Amazing stuff. My wife and I always dreamed to move to George. But that was before I fell in love with the Midlands.
