We just left Cape Town after spending two months in the city. It was our city stay that wasn’t supposed to be, but with each passing day in Africa we became more and more hungry for our own car. Hence, the long stay in South Africa’s most popular city as we tried to find our wheels.
Cape Town was our last stop in South Africa. We were told by Afrikaners that we were “saving the best till last.” Others just straight up told us to leave wherever we were at and head for the Cape immediately. When we arrived we knew we were in a completely different South Africa than before. It’s a place encompassed with natural beauty, while still maintaining that city feel. A place that experiences four seasons in one day, yet locals seem to walk everywhere in their bare feet.
When we stay in places for longer amount of time we get worried our images will run dry, our Instagram will get stale. However, we hate leaving our camera anywhere inside when we travel around Cape Town, and even have found ourselves in debate about how many Instagram photos we should post in a day – should we do two or three?
This is our collection of a September and October spent in and around Cape Town.
