This is the third and final instalment of my stint in Cape Town. So far you’ve seen me hiking up mountains, paragliding off them and running, playing and being a yogi on the beach. It’s been action packed and it’s been utter bliss! You’ve also followed my trips through the breathtaking landscapes of the infamous winelands. Cape Town has SO much to offer and it ain’t over yet! Below you’ll see me supping down the canals, biking in the hills, partying in the natural wonder that is Kirstenbosch botanical gardens and showing off the sights that make Cape Town one of my favourite places in the whole world.
I hope you’ve enjoyed dipping in to my adventure. I felt so alive and happy during my stay, helped of course by the sunshine but I’d say the essence of it was the wild and varied landscapes that make for a fitness lover’s perfect playground and the love that’s peppered around the mother city in the form of hanging hearts, loving words carved in stone and the big hearts and smiles of the warm Capetonians themselves. Scroll to the bottom of this post for my hit list of what to do if you visit. Cape Town you have the key to my heart.
