I went to Parys...the one in the Free State
I love to travel; so when my bestie suggested that we take a girls weekend away to Parys of all places, I jumped at the opportunity even though we both had no idea what the supposedly sleepy town had in store for us. We were both pleasantly surprised. Not only does Parys, Vredefort have the quaintest BnB's and hotels, but it also has lovely antique shops, spas and restaurants.
We didn't have a big budget for the weekend, because the main aim of our trip was some good 'ol girly fun and catching up. We did a little more than just catch up though; we went quad biking, got full body massages, ate black squid bread and even lunched by the river. Craziest of all was Kiki's foto studio in town. You get to dress up in Gatsby era or princess costumes and get professional photographs taken just because you can. Afterall when all is said and done, all we really have are memories!
Now I tell everyone about Parys and its only an hour and half away from Joburg, so you dont even have to stay the night.
