151226 – Cape Town Travel Log (Part 1)

My family and I had to make a trip to Cape Town for a wedding and decided to stay for the Christmas break. The trip started out badly with some complications at the airport about yellow fever vaccines to our luggage not arriving, but it had a quick turn over so after a quick trip to Mr. Price to stock on outfits for two days and settling down in this lovely villa which we’ll be calling home for the next few weeks. Our journey finally began.

We spent the first few days getting ready for the wedding, which was beautiful set in a polo club overlooking the Table Mountiain, which I’m constantly in awe at the sight of it. You can see it from every corner of the city and the view never gets old.

So far we’ve visited Robben Island prison, for a history lover it was so fascinating to be in the same place were so many influential men in South African History were kept for years. It took every bone in my body to hold back the tears, and I learnt a lot of things.

Gorging on ice-cream has officially become my speciality, actually gorging on anything that is edible has become my speciality. I don’t even want to talk about Christmas eve or day because the food coma was severe! It’s the holidays who’s counting calories at this time of the year? I’ll let the guilt sink in after the New Years.
