I’m currently writing to you from Cape Town, South Africa – having ditched the winter cold of Europe for the summer heat of the Southern Hemisphere! I’ve just been here for two days and I think I already have a crush on Cape Town. This is one of the most attractive cities I’ve ever been: a funky, urban metropolis lined by windswept blue bays and backed by outrageously stunning mountain ranges. The artful assemblage itself is enough to make me drool with wanderlust – it has everything that I want packed into one city: mountains, beaches and urban life.
Today I headed out to the coast and spent the day exploring the southern peninsula of Cape Town, meandering along the coastal route that runs parallel to the imposing 12 Apostles mountain range, stopping along the beautiful Camps Bay for a view of the giant swells, watching penguins at Boulders Beach, savoring grilled seafood at Simon’s Town and driving all the way to the southwesternmost tip of Africa: Cape Point. For now, I’ll let my pictures do the talking – hope you’ll enjoy seeing Cape Town through my lenses.
