A friend of mine once said, “To live is to travel. We all need to travel because of the exposure that comes with traveling. The experiences, different cultures and the lessons we learn is what also makes traveling worth every penny.” And for me, I strongly agree with this. My trip to Maboneng Precinct, Johannesburg South Africa, was an experience I will always cherish.
We only planned this trip a few days before my birthday and as soon as all the arrangements were in place, I could not wait. We left Zimbabwe on the 22nd of December and I could have never imagined what an experience this trip was going to be. We had quite a safe Journey and before we knew it, we were already done checking in at the Hotel, freshening up and getting ready to go and explore Maboneng Precinct.
For those of you who have never heard about the Maboneng Precinct, It is an urban neighborhood situated on the eastern side of the Johannesburg business district offering retail stores, entertainment venues and restaurants mixed with residential, offices and industrial spaces that appeal to a wide variety of people and businesses. As a blogger and content creator, I can’t begin to describe how such a notion gets me so excited; especially because of its creative take on history, architecture, art and Fashion. From fine restaurants and entertainment venues, retail stores and art galleries, this is a place I would genuinely recommend anyone looking for inspiration and just unwinding.
We stayed at the 12 decades hotel during our 10-day trip to this cultural hub. During our stay, I did try to capture some of the moments with my phone. Here is what I managed to capture:
This had to be one of my favorite things to do during the trip, I am sure you could tell from my Instagram. We made an effort to try out different types of foods during our stay. Mostly for our lunch and dinner. Here are some of the tasty bites that got us hooked:
What’s a travel diary without mentioning the drinks that made us feel lighter? haha
