Not many people can say that they live in a city surrounded by a mountain and the sea. I feel extremely fortunate to live in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Cape Town as been voted one of the best places to travel to on numerous occasions. I think it’s amazing that I am able to walk outside my front door and am able to see the mountain from where I live.
Cape Townians are generally very laid-back some say too laid-back but we are also very friendly and hospitable. The great thing about living here is that there is always something to do. From the scenic wine routes along Stellenbosch to Cape Point where the 2 oceans meet to our beautiful beaches where one can surf, kayak and if you love the mountains there’s hiking, abseiling and no trip to Cape Town will be complete without taking the cable car up to Table Mountain.
It’s not just a destination for someone who loves the outdoors we also have vibrant night life where you can club hop working your way along the famous Long street. Lots of live bands and comedic performances across the city as we have a plethora of talent. Cape Town is also home to many museums, art galleries, flea markets (don’t forget to check out the antique flea market close to Long Street) and many boutique stores. Be sure to visit the Neighbourhood market at Old Biscuit Mill in Lower Woodstock.
So if you’ve never been here start planning that trip and if you already live here don’t miss out on all that Cape Town has to offer.
