It's All About The Ladies - Weekend Update Week 10

With a beautiful week behind us, we look ahead to the weekend that lies ahead. In the weeks gone by, we’ve been greeted with beautiful views and sunsets in the Overberg and it serves as a small reminder every now and then to the beautiful area we live in.

For this week’s #discoverOverberg we got the chance to share all we love about our home towns and why we think the Overberg makes for such a great #Sho’tLeft. The tweetosphere was a buzz once again with our favourite things to do, places to eat and hidden treasures of the Overberg which can fill the bucketlist for many a lifetime.

Looking ahead at the weekend, we are all excited about the Baardskeerdersbos Basaar taking place tomorrow. It is the perfect excuse to head to the beautiful little hamlet of Baardskeerdersbos and enjoy the festivities. Indulge in the freshly baked treats, arts and crafts and traditional sounds of the Baardskeerdersbos Orkes.

We also join the world in the celebration of International Women’s Day tomorrow (Saturday, 8 March 2014). Celebrated for the first time on February 28th in 1909, the celebration of the wonderful woman in our lives and in the world has led to some of the most influential changes in the world as we know it. Used as a mechanism for protesting against various wars and injustices, the ladies of the world have stood together and shown what girl power can really do!

For countries like Afghanistan, Belarus, Cuba, Russia, Ukraine and Vietnam International Women’s Day is an official holiday and other countries like Madagascar, China, Macedonia and Nepal it is a holiday for women only. The less revolutionary celebrations include flowers and gift giving to the special women in your life. Here’s to the mothers, the sisters, the aunts, the girlfriends, the grandmothers, the friends, and the daughters. Here’s to the ladies!
