If you are of the road-tripping ilk, then the Sunday Times has an idea for you: head out on the N1, into the cold, desolate Karoo, and spend a night or two on a farm in – well, where, exactly? The writer doesn’t mention the name of her destination until the last sentence of her piece.
Turn’s out it’s Springfontein, in the Free State Province – and although the place’s country dark and desert cold didn’t charm the pants off her, you get a sense of how it just might suit the zanier kind of paleo-archaeo-travelologists, who go to primitive places just because “they’re there”.
