    The Mother City’s newest addition: The SunStar beacon of hope

The Mother City’s newest addition: The SunStar beacon of hope

Incredible views from the Cape Wheel in the V&A

I’m sure you guys have all seen that big Cape Wheel (previously known as the Wheel of Excellence) in the V&A Waterfront…  but have you ever thought of going up for a ride?

Lion’s head was really showing off last night

Seeing the city through tourist eyes

So I’ve had my friend Austin here for a few days.  He’s a New Orleans born guy who currently lives in San Diego.  We became friends on a train station somewhere in Italy while I was touring there in 2011.

It’s his first visit to Cape Town (and South Africa for that matter) and I’ve […]

Going up the mountain in style

My friend Darryn (aka “the man who wins EVERYTHING”) won a sunset ride up to the top of Table Mountain for him and 9 friends.  The prize also included free food and drinks. Yeah baby! 🙂

For those who haven’t been up there in a while (or ever), they have a relatively new loungy spot up there […]
