Frimpong in South Africa - by Natalie Victor





By Natalie Victor
After my travel in Hungary, I have looked at a weather report in my own Country ...
Snow and cold .... Nononononononononono . I am not ready for that !
So, I have accepted the invitation from Natalie to visit South Africa !

I will be pleased to visit the famous Wine Production
in South Africa with my kind hosts ! :-)

South Africa is located at the southernmost region of Africa,
with a long coastline that stretches more than 2,500 kilometres (1,550 mi)
and across two oceans (the Atlantic and the Indian).

Due to this varied topography and oceanic influence, a great variety of climatic zones exist.

The extreme southwest has a climate remarkably similar to that of the Mediterranean
with wet winters and hot, dry summers, hosting the famous Fynbos Biome.
This area also produces much of the wine in South Africa.
This region is also particularly known for its wind, which blows intermittently almost all year.
The severity of this wind made passing around the Cape of Good Hope particularly treacherous for
sailors, causing many shipwrecks. Further east on the south coast, rainfall is distributed more
evenly throughout the year, producing a green landscape. This area is popularly known as the
Garden Route.

With my very kind host Natalie and her husband, I will travel in this splendid country.
Here are the photos of my actual trip !
