Kryolia – The Quest for the Medallion- book review

As an English teacher, I quite enjoy sitting down with a good book, some chocolate and coffee of-course!

Carribean island Walkerville JHB

During December we were on the hunt for some exciting water parks that the kids can enjoy. We visited the Caribbean which is situated in Walkerville Johannesburg.  It is rather difficult to find places that we can all go to as a family because most places are not wheelchair friendly. The owner did his best to ensure that my grandmother was comfortable. He even moved his car so that we could park closer to the resort and it would be easier to take her in and out of the resort. The place was absolutely stunning and we were shocked to find out that it was all man made. When you enter the resort you genuinely feel as if you are on an island as it is filled with beach sand and beautiful island decor. They have braai facilities and you are allowed to bring in any snacks or drinks as their restaurant is currently not operating. It’s a fun place for families to relax and enjoy themselves at an affordable cost… R50 for adults R20 for children They have diving facilities as well which come at an additional cost. Times: Monday: 10:00-19:00 Tuesday: 10:00-19:00 Wednesday: 10:00-19:00 Thursday: 10:00-19:00 Friday: 10:00-19:00 Saturday: 10:00-19:00 Sunday: 10:00-19:00 Address: 128 R557 Grasmere Road, Golfview 1961 Walkerville (Use Same Entrance as Maggi’s Country Kennels)...
