For all intents and purposes, Pretoria is the true capital of South Africa. Pretoria functions as the administrative center of the country. Pretoria is located in the northern part of the country, a fair distance from Cape Town.
It is possible to see the town, eat well and take in the local culture without going broke. Start off with a visit to Blos Café. The café’s breakfast menu is varied and affordable. You can get a whole big breakfast for less than $10.
After breakfast, it’s time for some sightseeing. The first item on our list is the Union Building. The Union Building is the seat of South African government. Over the years, it has become one of the most popular tourist spots in the city. You can enter the buildings for free.
For lunch, another café with great food is on the agenda. Café Beyritz offers a great lunch menu. The most expensive item on the menu is still cheaper than $10. Dig in and enjoy, and get ready for a full afternoon.
If the weather is nice, this is a great time to visit the Pretoria National Botanical Garden. The garden is one of nine national gardens in South Africa. There are many different tours visitors can take, including through the biodiversity center and grassland environment. You can get a ticket to the garden for about $2.50.
For dinner, you should go to one of Pretoria’s best restaurants. Black Bamboo Restaurant is a fine-dining option where reservations are required. It is surprisingly affordable, however, with most entrees coming in at less than $20.
For a late-night snack and drink, head to the Culture Club. This tapas bar has excellent drinks and an affordable menu.
Turkey is a staple dish of the holiday season. Almost all families already had their share of turkey dinner on Thanksgiving, but, if you are like my family, you get to enjoy it all over again at Christmas. Check out these tips on how to make your best turkey yet.
We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
No matter how many years of flying experience you have under your belt, some travelers still struggle to find the perfect position in which to sleep, and also may find it difficult to find the perfect accessory to aid in this attempt. Travel pillows are a dime a dozen and always promise the best, most comfortable sleep you can have while sitting upright, but 360 degrees of support is the claim behind the Cabeau Evolution travel pillow, one that uses memory foam to adapt to the user’s unique body shape and sleeping position.
While your first inclination might be panic when you map out the various appointments and meetings on your upcoming business trip, relax. Trust us, a rental car has you covered.
