I love winter but when it comes to the cold weather I can be a bit of a ninny, hence the need for a survival guide. For those of you that don’t know Durban isn’t the coldest place in South Africa and is mostly known for having the best weather in the country during winter. Saying that, we do get some chilly days due to snowy conditions on the mountains a bit further inland (as I type this post the thermometer on my verandah is telling me it is 15 degrees outside). I also spent the last week of June in Johannesburg I actually got to wear coats and jerseys I haven’t worn since the last time I was in Gauteng, which was about three years ago! I was since inspired to put together all the goodies that are getting me through the season.
