I’m heading back to Cape Town in December. Travelling and living abroad has always made this city more beautiful to me. Every time I return I appreciate it more and more. Watching the sun go down on on the Atlantic Seaboard with the Twelve Apostles behind me is unforgettable and will never fail to move me. Sitting in Kirstenbosch gardens at the foot of Devil’s Peak on a Sunday evening listening to a jazz band is something everyone should experience.
I live in San Francisco and standing in the Marin Headlands and looking back onto the white city of San Francisco as the sun sets is breathtaking and humbling. It always reminds me of Table Mountain with the cloud pouring over the top and disappearing into Oranjazicht . Same light, same cloud sweeping in – a different ocean but just as powerful.
There are beautiful places all over the world but there’s no other place in the world with the same concentration of beauty as Cape Town and the surrounding areas of Stellenbosch, Noordhoek and Constantia. Mediterranean climate, winelands beaches, mountains, cityscapes and beautiful people all within a 50 km radius.
Can’t wait to see you again Cape Town
