If I only had 10 minutes…


10 minutes. You and your keyboard (or smartphone. Or tablet. Or pen and paper). No pauses, no edits, no looking back: it’s free-write time!

If I only had ten minutes in Africa

What would I look at

Where will I go?

Cape Town, Gabarone or Accra?

If I only had ten minutes on this earth

I will stay in Africa because of

The wide open spaces

The animals and birds

And youIMG_3809

Day 9: Why I love South Africa: So many places to visit: Cape Town Day 9


I’ve been to Cape Town a few times and every time it as an enjoyable experience.

The first time I went to Cape Town was in 1994 with my parents. We went by train it was then called the Trans Karoo. (Today it’s called the Shozaloza mile). There is and old Afrikaans song about it

We traveled overnight and my gran went with us. We spent the week in Cape Town visiting the Waterfront and the Castle. Click here if you’d like to read more about the attractions around Cape town.

Another  great holiday in Cape Town was with my friends Marleen and Marietjie. We went wine tasting and sightseeing.

My most recent trip to Cape Town was in March this year. I went with my husband. He was born in the Western Cape so it was great to have a “local” showing me around.1924399_10152306185816882_312069171_n

We are already planning our next trip…so watch this space. My sister is heading there on Sunday for work so I’m going to ask her for pictures to share with you.
