I’ve recently arrived back in the UK after working in Paarl which is located just outside Cape Town. This iconic City which has Table Mountain as its famous backdrop was going to be my home for the next three months. Coming from the English countryside I’m not use to the hustle and bustle of living in a city but it didn’t take long to get use to the city life. The city is a very relaxed and laid backed and life always seems to go slower in Cape Town. Its easy to fall in love with the summer vibes of the mother city. Especially when you have beaches like Camps Bay and Clifton beach. Whilst sitting on the beach at Camps Bay with Lions Head and Table Mountain shadowing the beach, you can easily see why so many people are attracted to this city. With Cape Town being the gateway to the cape wine lands, most weekends were spent chilling in the many vineyards that populate the surrounding city. With the rolling hills as far as the eye can see, filled with vineyards and the constant supply of wine, its hards not to fall in love. If wine tasting isn’t your thing then there’s plenty of other activities to get up to. Surfing at Bloubergstrand is always a fun past time, with Table Mountain in the distance and Robbin island in full view there isn’t much better places to go surfing. Bloubergstrand also offers plenty of bars over looking the beach. Blue Peter being my favourite as its the only place in which i can find a decent pint of Guinness in Cape Town. If you feeling adventures then theres plenty to keep you occupied. Lions Head is always a good walk, just don’t do it on the hottest day of the year like I did.
