I suppose the first thing to do is an make a mention of laziness on my part for neglecting this tiny area of the internet for so long. I have traveled far and wide since my last update and often I sat and thought about how I should be posting on a regular basis but something always seemed to come up or get in the way. I hope you will forgive me and I promise to make more of an effort going forwards.
The cape is beautiful – there is nothing really more I could say to describe it. From the beaches to the mountains as well as the desert (Karroo) which is just around the corner. There is history, wine farms, fine dining and some of the best hotels you will ever find. If you are a golfer (like me) then you will truly spoiled for choice. For anyone even slight considering a trip down here then I highly recommend it.
This short video will you a little bit of insight but I am sure you get the idea. If I could live there I would but you have to ensure you have work. This is fast becoming the preferred destination for South Africans who have the money and due to the lifestyle the property market has become a little bit overpriced.

Well ,I was in town I did almost everything on offer, that sounds like a lot and it really was. I am fairly broke now, but then you only live once! Aside from the chaos floating around the town there are plenty of nature areas to go an visit. I enjoy watching cheetahs so I tool myself of to the cheetah sanctuary in Somerset West, what an awesome experience as you can even go and sit next to one while you stroke the hairs on its back! There is nothing quite like the exhilaration of sitting next to a large cat like that.
I did take a bunch of pictures and I will do my best to get them uploaded for my next post. I also want to talk a little bit about the garden route as that is another amazing part of the world to visit. The beauty is astounding and there is also so much to do and see.
