VTT Postcard - Colesberg Accommodation - La Provence

Monday, May 7, 2012
The stop-over at Colesberg was not in the original plan of things.



At first, hubby and I wanted to drive all the way to Cape Town in a day. But hubby's old age was acting up weeks before our intended departure and so I thought it best to book a one-night stop-over accommodation in Colesberg, which was literally halfway between Johannesburg and Cape Town.

The town was tiny and quaint to say the least. It felt very much like a one-main-street type of town. Found our accommodation quite easy. The bed and breakfast was located on one side of the street, and our place for the night was across the street. It was cozy and just enough for our family of 4.

There was really not much to say about the place. It wasn't exactly the greatest but it served its purpose.

The funny part was that we had some people who were staying next door to us, also renting accommodations. We actually found out that they were Filipinos. They've been working on the telecommunication lines along Colesberg. Fancy that. Filipinos in the middle of nowhere.

The next day we left before breakfast, onto our next stop - Cape Town.
