Rest for my soul

There is no place in the world that is more beautiful to me than the Freestate.  Especially where I grew up, on a farm close to Steynsrus (some would call it "The Middle of Nowhere").  People don't understand this or agree with me most of the time and they actually think I'm a bit crazy :)  But my opinion will never change...

I think its the simplicity of the beauty that draws me.  There are no extravagant mountains.  There are no waterfalls or huge trees that makes it special.  Only golden  fields that stretches out as far as the eye can see and here and there a small farm house and some cows.

It is here where I find rest for my soul.  And I will always return to the place where I grew up...


  1. Oh wow! Stunning pics :) Ek love ook die Vrystaat x

  2. My Plaasmeisie!

    I admit, the serene beauty and open quiet has an appeal. Normally I'd say that it is difficult to describe. But your wornderful words and great pictures have done it justice!
