Most of all I enjoy the easy lifestyle in Cape Town, just kicking back and chilling along the sea promenade and at my favourite beaches: Clifton, Camps Bay (pictured) and Llandudno…
I first visited the Mother City in 1997, shortly after apartheid was abolished (in 1991), and am amazed to see the development the city, and South Africa, has undergone.
On my first visit to Cape Town I experienced all the main sights, like Robben Island (where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for 18 years), the District 6 Museum and the iconic Table Mountain.
All worth a visit but every time I return to Cape Town I aim to discover and explore new areas, experiences and interesting (day) trips.
I am more than happy to share my favourite experiences from my most recent trip to Cape Town with you…

Tallinn, the Estonian capital offers a very modern take on both its Baltic and its medieval heritage.
You feel transferred to the middle-ages as you cross the cobblestoned Town Hall Square in the Old Town in Tallinn. Thick-walled brick-houses from the 13th century surround you, and people dressed like extras from a Robin Hood-movie try to lure you into their establishment to sample medieval cuisine.
Idyllic Old Town in Tallinn was UNESCO heritage listed in 1997 but search a bit further, Continue reading
