A few weeks ago I set off on one of the best, if not the best trip I’ve ever been on. My family and I live all around the world and it can be tough to find the time to all get together and see each other, so when it happens it can be all that more special.
I arrived in Cape Town, where i met the rest of my family and we travelled 2 hours along the coast to the town of Greyton. The house where we stayed was nestled in between the mountains, with greenery all around and the peaceful atmosphere of a little village. This became our base, where we would take day trips to explore the surrounding areas and culture. From here we visited the Arndale Wine Region, Cape Agulhas, as well as the Hermanus coast for whale watching (didn’t see any unfortunately), before making the move to Cape Town centre.
After the 2 hour trip back to Cape Town, we went straight to our Airbnb house and tested out the swimming pool, which was definitely needed after the hot car journey. Cape Town has to be one of the most beautiful places i have visited, nestled between the mountains and the ocean with warm temperatures all year round. Once in Cape Town, we visited Robben Island to see the conditions of the prison Nelson Mandela was kept in, Boulders beach to play with the penguins, as well as Cape Point and Cape of Good Hope to see where the Atlantic and the Indian oceans meet (technically this is Cape Agulhas). We even went up Table Mountain and got views of the entire city, which for someone like me whos scared of heights this was a challenge.
I could honestly sit here and write pages about how amazing the trip was and how everyone should visit Cape Town, but i’ll just let the photos do the talking.
