Picnics with Zulumoon Gondolas

Picnics

Thanks to Jade Rajcoomar for allowing us to share this beautiful pic. And Unfold Durban for this wonderful Picnic write-up. Picnics with a difference! My husband and I had a picnic wedding 22 odd years ago in a public park. We did not have a lot of money and we kept things simple. It was very special and memorable and over the years we have learnt sometimes it is the simple things in life that create the best memories.

Picnics .. oh where did the word Picnic originate?

A more sinister thought of origin was that Picnics were crowds gathering to witness lynchings but there is no actual evidence of this. The word is French in origin pique-nique . It was originally found in print in 1692. Picnicking became popular after the french revolution as commoners were able to now mingle in the countries royal parks.

You can picnic anywhere & Picnics are loved by everyone!

Look, my husband and I are slightly eccentric, once we did an indoor picnic in our flat and painted leaves on our walls just for fun! (we were young with no kids and had no furniture, haha) Then there was one time we got home late and at 10pm we took our dinner to the beach and had a late-night picnic!

Picnics – Right for any occasion

We always associate picnics with romance. The beauty of this is that one does not have to wait until valentines day! Anniversaries or just the simple joy of sharing each others company on an ordinary day! There are some incredible picnic spots around the world, some of my favourites are right here in KZN! That is the beauty of it! You can celebrate just about any occasion with a picnic! I have even had kids parties that have been picnics! We are blessed to live in such a beautiful city with many beautiful picnic spots! An affordable, comfortable way of relaxing and living in the moment with those you love! Zulumoon Gondolas offers the unique opportunity to enjoy a private picnic on board. So why not book now you know you want to! Links Below.
