CAPE TOWN TRAVEL – 16 Pics Of My Most Gorgeous Trip of 2016

Top of Table Mountain!

If I said ‘CAPE TOWN’ is one of the most breathtakingly beautiful cities in the world, it would only be a cliché! There is an unusual beauty and overwhelming cheer about it. It is much prettier than what you and I virtually know of it. When I visited it in real, my heart swelled with happiness. The moment we stepped out of the airport, I couldn’t contain my excitement to tread on N2 up to Kloof Nek between Lions Head and Table Mountain. Soon, I was struck slightly dumb at first as I saw the idyllic outline of the city from the top of the mountain that has clouds for its cover and later I shouted “Ooh la la” driving through its world-famous scenic routes.



From the Table Mountain and the gorgeous beaches to the V&A waterfront and Woodstock markets, and the Bo Kaap street to the vineyards, this iconic city has some of the most amazing landscapes to fall in love with. This city inspires to make memories. No doubt, it has etched a special place in my heart. As I try to express my feelings, the pictures from the past, the smell of the city, the fresh air and the beautiful sceneries evoke nostalgic memories from this very special South African holidays.

Thanks to my consultant husband and his traveling job,  I had a chance to explore Johannesburg – the city of Gold last year, which added a new perspective to my travel stories. The traveler in me was delighted at exploring all the unique urban attractions and landmarks that the city had to offer.  While one part of me was impressed about Johannesburg and its facets, there was another part of me which had the urge to be charmed by Cape Town too. In the first four weeks, hubby was extremely pressed for time and I could not see the trip happening anywhere in the near future. Honestly, I was disappointed. As my date of return neared, I lost all hopes. Then God intervened. In the 6th and last week of my stay there, some miracle happened, he was able to squeeze in some time and we decided to do a super quick and an impromptu trip to Cape Town. Initially, I thought we shouldn’t be doing it in a rush but trust me, every bit of an effort that we made to be at Cape Town was totally worth it.  Take my words- ‘Don’t miss the chance to be at Cape Town’.

The Travel Trends: new destinations for 2017′ tell me that South Africa will leave no stone unturned in wooing travelers this year. And it deserves all the attention too. To those who wish to travel there, I am always there to help you plan your trip. And those who are yet not impressed, I will ensure that my series of blog posts will get you tempted to get packing. Once again, I insist that one should not have inhibitions around Johannesburg but at the same time no visit to South Africa should be complete without immersing in the immaculate beauty of the iconic city. I am head over heels in love with Cape Town!



The Cape Peninsula hosts the richest floral kingdom in the world. The Cape of Storms was named the Cape of Good by King of Portugal in 1488. Table Mountain happens to be one of the great natural wonders of the world. The African Penguins love to call it home. The trip to the island prison where Nelson Mandela stayed for many years, now a museum is easily feasible. The Waterfront is one of the most marquee attraction. Go looking for the best of South African wines and the wine routes only here. Yes, Cape Town is indeed unique in many ways.
