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.
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!
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!
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.
Travel the world!
