Cape Town Travel Moments #1

Share this post
So far most of my posts from South Africa have been outfit related, so it is about time that I share some of my favourite travel moments with you! Here are six highlights of my trip to Cape Town:

1) Going up Table Mountain

Going up Table Mountain is definately a must when you visit Cape Town! I went up there by Cableway, but you can also hike if you are in for a workout 😉 The view from up there is so incredible- you can see the whole of Cape Town!
2) Visiting the V&A Waterfront
The V&A Waterfront is a shopping, dining and entertainment area overlooking the harbour. During my first week in Cape Town with my mom, we went there nearly every evening and ate at the “Balducci” restaurant, where I always got vegan Sushi and my mom got herself a Pizza. I think people in Cape Town are really into Sushi, because nearly every restaurant has it on the menu. I had the best Sushi at a place called “Willoughby & Co” which is also inside the V&A Waterfront shopping mall. If you are in Cape Town and looking for a place to shop and enjoy good food the V&A Waterfront is the place for you!
3) Picnicing at a vineyard
I went to visit the “Buitenverwachting” wine farm twice: once with my mom and once with my whole family. Both times we had a picnic under the huge oak tree in the garden, tasted some of their wine and enjoyed the beautiful, calm atmosphere. 
4) Visiting the Hout Bay Weekend market

When you visit the Hout Bay Weekend market you can shop your way through the many unique stalls which offer everything from delicate jewellery over to traditional african crafts up to vintage clothes. The market also offers a huge range of food stalls (sadly not so many vegan options available) and a Dr.Juice bar where you can get yourself a smoothie or a juice. 
5) Relaxing at Camps Bay and Clifton Beach
During the time I spent alone in South Africa I went to Clifton 2nd beach nearly every day to soak up the sun, read a good book and relax. The beaches in Cape Town are all so breathtakingly beautiful, but the Clifton beaches with their white sand, turquoise water and their huge stone boulders are my favourite.
6) Exploring the colourful neighbourhood of Bo Kaap

Bo Kaap is an area of Cape Town known for its brightly coloured homes and romatic cobble stone streets. The neighbourhood offers the ideal backdrop for photoshoots so I also shot an outfit post there. How cool would it be if all houses around the globe were as colourful as the ones in Bo Kaap?
In my eyes Cape Town never really gets boring as there is just so much to do and to explore. I have so many pictures from the trip on my camera that I decided to split this post into two parts, so it doesn’t get too long. I hope you enjoyed part one and stay tuned for the second part!

Seeeehr beeindruckende Bilder!Um welche Tageszeit würdest du es empfehlen am besten auf den table Mountain zu gehen?Und habt ihr euch für alles andere ein auto geliehen? Oder wie kommt man am besten von Ort zu Ort?Danke schon mal! Liebe grüße, Sam

Danke Sam! Ich war tagsüber dort (so gegen 12 Uhr) habe aber auch gehört, dass man sich Abends den Sonnenuntergang von dort anschauen kann, was ich mir super schön vorstelle. Als ich mit meiner Familie dort war haben wir ein Auto geliehen und als ich alleine war bin ich hauptsächlich mit "Uber" oder dem "Myciti" bus rumgekommen. Öffentliche Verkehrsmittel sind in Kapstadt leider nicht so toll, daher hat man mit einem Auto wirklich ein Vorteil. Liebe Grüße, Janine xx

Danke für deine Antwort! Wie war das denn mit dem links Verkehr? Ich stell mir das schon ziemlich verrückt vor. Hast du auch irgendwelche Erfahrungen mit dem taxi gemacht?
