Today I took my Swiss friend on a tour of the Stellenbosch winelands. We explored some of the most beautiful and prestigious wine estates in the country. And we had a spectacular experience.

We spent the majority of the time laughing, mostly at ourselves. We engaged the wine experts and spent time getting to know them. We arrived in hoodies and takkies. And we got treated like royalty.

Most of the other patrons in these places were the opposite. They were very serious when doing the wine tastings. They barely acknowledged the person serving them. They dressed really nicely and they arrived in fancy cars. 

And even though we were all at the same places, I can guarantee that we enjoyed it more. We weren’t trying to impress anyone or being pompous. We were there to have fun. 

It doesn’t matter if you’re a student or a famous business person. If you want to have the best experiences, don’t take yourself too seriously
