A couple of weekends ago Daniel and I had a spontaneous thought. We decided to go away for one night on a whim...we Googled a couple of places to stay in the Natal Midlands which is an area which lies give or take here and there about an hour to an hour and a half outside of Durban. We literally rode off into the sunset leaving city life behind us. It was blissful! The next morning we awoke to bird song and an open landscape! Nothing better if you ask me.
On the drive home we stopped in Howick which I found really inspirational. I know it isn't Durban, but it is in the province of Kwa-Zulu Natal so falls under 'Durban as Inspiration' for now.
Whilst in town I met a lovely lady who was telling passersby about Howick and handing out fliers with various facts about this little town. Howick is small, but worth a visit so in you are in South Africa make it a destination as it is an antique shoppers paradise.
At one of the shops there were the most amazing old suitcases which still held many a travellers memories to destinations both near and far.
