Cape Town here we come!

The day was finally here! We are on our way to Cape Town. We’ve been dreaming about this day for months. For now it is time to leave Jozi behind and head to Cape Town from Lanseria Airport. My mother and my sister took us to the airport and we had a pre-flight celebration at the airport.

Flying from Lanseria airport is very convenient for us as we stay very close.






In less than 2 hours we were at the Mother City! We hired a car and picked it up at the airport. From the airport we went to Belville where friends of my husband stay. We had a braai and the next day we went to do some sightseeing. Bloubergstrand was of course one of our first stops.

 We also went to the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront and there we visited the Aquarium. What a treat!


We had some of the best fish and chips that I’ve ever tasted at the restaurant at the aquarium


Finding Nemo!


This picture of a shark is one of my favourites

Breakwater lodge When I was in Standard 5 (Grade 7) in 1994 we went on a family holiday to Cape Town. We stayed in the Breakwater lodge. It was interesting to see in again after so many years. It is very close to the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront. You can read more about our trip here
