My adventure in Cape Town was the longest one of my gap year so far, no wonder I have lots and lots of pictures from the trip! Cape Town is one of a kind: it only took me two days to completely fall in love with the city. But who wouldn’t? Convince yourself with this second part of my travel moments:

7) Driving down to the Cape of Good Hope
Located inside the Table Mountain National Park the Cape of Good Hope is absolutely breathtaking. Even the drive to the Cape Point itself is an adventure, because as we drove through the nature reserve we got to see ostriches and baboons (monkeys). Some of those baboons even climbed on the cars!
8) Stopping by in Muizenberg
When my family and I drove down to the Cape of Good Hope we stopped by in Muizenberg for a little juice/smoothie break and to have a look at the colourful beach cabins there. Apparently it is the best spot in Cape Town to learn how to surf.
9) Visiting the Boulder’s Beach Penguin colony
Another stop on the way to the Cape was Boulder’s Beach with its penguin colony. The penguins are so adorable and fun to watch. Sometimes they even leave their protected area and walk over to Boulder’s Beach where you can see them up close.
10) Eating at Plant- a vegan restaurant
I always get so excited when I travel and discover a vegan restaurant! Plant was one of those discoveries and it offers (as the name reveals) a wide range of plantbased foods. My absolute favourite was the “Protein Salad” (pictured above) with quinoa, sundried tomatoes, chickpeas, zucchini and walnuts- so yum!
11) Staying at Sunset Beach
Being a huge fan of windsurfing and watersports in general, Sunset beach was the place for me. Whilst I was in Cape Town with my family we stayed at the “Sunset Lodge & Spa”, which is only about 100 metres away from Sunset beach. I loved spending my day lying at the beach, tanning and watching the windsurfers and kiters do their crazy tricks in the waves. Furthermore, you get the an amazing view over Table Mountain, so the sunsets at that beach are absolutely breathtaking.
I hope you enjoyed these travel moments from Cape Town! The city definately got me hooked, so I am pretty sure that this wasn’t my last trip there.
