    As an HI employee, I always am excited to stay in other Hostelling International hostels. And thankfully, 33 South did not disappoint. The staff were extremely friendly, the vibe was hip and local, and everything was a great value. I definitely met a number of people and could not have been more happy with the experience.

    ... all turn in unison to look as well. Now have half a dozen people gawping at me down the aisle. For a good few moments. They're obviously thinking......who is he? Refrain from doing a little regal wave. That would just be taking the whatsit.

    They retire to their seats. And I to mine.

    ... and/or the World of Birds.

    For dinner we ate at a small restaurant near the hotel. Kingclip is a popular fish in the area and is absolutely delicious.

    We booked the hotel room for the entire day since our flight home left at 11:20PM (KLM Cape Town to Amsterdam). The flight back was not comfortable. The plane was packed to the gills - and the seats torturous - thin padding, no leg ...

    ... a break! We spent the morning of the 25th in Riomaggiore, the fifth and final of the five villages of Cinque Terre. We then took the train to Milan, where it was also raining. We explored the Duomo -the massive Catholic Cathedral in the middle of the cities. Inside there was amazing stained glass, dead important Catholic Church members, and a gift shop. They wanted money for pictures, so ...

    ... 2 hr flight, I landed in Cape Town and taxi’d to my hotel on the waterfront. My first impressions of Cape Town from the cab were a bit like Adelaide.

But crossing to the waterfront precinct saw a bit more colour and the glory of Table Mountain eyeing down from above was enough to change my impression. I arrived at the hotel about midday and had to wait an hour or so for my room to be available. Not ...
