Destination: Cape Town


Hello darlings! Here is a photo diary of my Capetown travel. I loved Capetown, it is absolutely stunning and very laid back when compared to Johannesburg. There are lots to see especially the iconic table mountain which is now one of the new seven wonders! Weather it's a killer view of Cape Town from Table mountain, practicing your jump on Lion's head, re-living history at Robben Island or people watching at Camp's Bay - the St. Tropez of Cape Town - the possibilities are endless! But I must warn, the weather is incredibly harsh. I visited in October which is during summer time in South Africa and it drained my skin of moisture. No matter how much moisturizing lotion I slathered on my skin; I still felt dry. No matter how much I oiled my cuticles; I still got dry peeling cuticles. Even the air was so dry that I occasionally got non-threatening dry bloody nose.Yuck! But all of this is a small price to pay compared to the wonders to be beheld.




Camps Bay was an absolute delight! Its got the C-AL-I-F-O-R-N-I-A feel with the palm trees and a stunning view of both Table Mountain and Lion's head while you enjoy the cool beach water on a hot day. And oh yes! Some of the best Seafood restaurants are located in Camp's Bay. Yum!





One of the most touching experiences was visiting Robben Island where Nelson Mandela faced injustice and was imprisoned for 18 years. It begins with a ferry ride from Victoria and Alfred's Waterfront to the Island to begin the tour of the prison. 

Our guide was also an ex "political" prisoner who also faced injustice at Robben Island. He gave us first hand accounts on what life was like at Robben Island. I have a very vivid imagination so this was a bit difficult for me.
Below is Nelson Mandela's cell during his time on Robben Island.

After listening to the stories of man cruelty and injustice on Robben Island, you might become sad and blue but a quick visit to the very colorful neighborhood of BoKaap, also known as the Malay quarters, where the first Muslims settled will cheer you up right quick!



After taking in BoKaap you've got to visit the picturesque suburb of Muizenberg. It is breathtaking and considered to be the birthplace of surfing in South Africa.


If nothing, you've got to visit the African penguins at Boulders beach, they are so "stinking" cute! Pun intended.

On our way to the Cape of Good Hope, the southern tip of Africa, we came across these beauties of Ostrich. Oh, how I love the African continent, so pure and beautiful!

I can now check this off my bucket list. :)
Finally, one can't visit the Cape of Good Hope without stopping by Cape point - the most south-westerly tip of Africa - for a fantastic mountainous scenic view.

Here is the view of the beautiful table mountain from my hotel room. I woke up to this iconic and scenic view every morning!

  6. So gorgeous! You definitely seemed to have covered a lot of ground while you were there. It definitely seems worth the potential dry skinny and bloody nose.
