The Wildebeest's Review of Getaway Magazine - Volume 31 Number 9

The Wildebeest reviewing a book

I like the cover of the December 2019 issue of Getaway Magazine. A simple cottage right on the seashore seems very inviting. There is a lady gazing out to see, surfboard in hand, which adds to the appeal.

Do you like Mexican food? If so, then you will enjoy the recipes early on in the magazine. The photography is great with interesting colours and patterns, but the food looks even better. Up next are various sections on photography. It took my older eyes a little time to work out what I was looking at on page 57.

Kommetjie is a relaxing place to visit on the Cape Peninsula and Pippa de Bruyn introduces us to some great places to stay at during a visit. Take your pick as they all look interesting.

There is something special about road trips. I am not talking about how quickly one can get from Durban to Joburg on the N3. I am talking about trips on alternate routes and backroads where time is not so relevant. Why am I mentioning this? It is because I enjoyed the article on a road trip between Cradock and Durban.

Just to round off this review I must mention the article on the southern Cape. As usual a great article is accompanied by great photos. Good stuff.
