Feeling a little run down and burnt out? Like you need to escape from the city?
Luckily Dullstroom is only 2,5 hours away, so you can easily pop out for a sneaky winter getaway without anyone noticing you’re gone.
We got 12 friends together this weekend and escaped the big city lights, it was exactly what we needed to recharge our batteries.
We rented a big house in Dullies, split the food budget and let the fun commense.
Saturday morning saw the girls lie in the winter sun on bean bags, with blankets while the boys played golf. We then took turns cooking and making snacks, In the evenings we lit a roaring fire, made hot chocolate and played board games. It was so nice to do something different, to talk and play games instead of watching TV and being on our phones. It was lovely smelling the fresh air, being around nature and seeing all the stars in the sky.
Sunday saw the boys go fishing before we headed back to the city to go grocery shopping and things like that. Adulting is hard but it is so important to make yourself a priority and unplug from time to time.
What 10 things would I recommend you take to Dullstroom for a chilly weekend away, apart from hot chocolate, boardgames and bae?
Thick fluffy socks
A great face moisturiser
A cleansing body oil so you can wash yourself and hydrate your skin in the shower
A thick coat / Warm jersey
Dry shampoo as you will not be washing your hair in this cold weather
Running shoes so you can stay active
A water bottle to stay hydrated
