      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.

      Cape Town Part 1: Are We Still in Africa?

      When you arrive in Cape Town, you're automatically greeted by an airy, stylish airport that feels analogous to having arrived in San Diego, California. As an early side note and general bizarre observation, I've come to realize that you really can tell a lot about a place from their airports. When I look back on Tanzania, Malawi and Zambia, their …

      Out of Africa

      A travel blog entry by erin_smolders on Aug 24, 2013

      As I sit here in my over-lander truck I am enjoying what the locals call an "African massage". What this really means is that I am sitting in a truck with moderate shock absorbers and suspension, driving several hundred km on a gravel road which has more dips and twists than a roller coaster. It's almost midday so the sun is finally hard at work and the freezing night air has disappeared, at least until tonight's sunset anyway. ...

      ... restaurant. The establishment had a locked gate so we had to be buzzed in, making us look like even more of a spectacle than we already were. Our waitress called the fajitas fa-jeet-ahs, which made me laugh, but the food was amazing! I didn't eat much because its been painful to swallow for some reason, but I'm hoping it will be better tomorrow. Our night concluded with everyone writing their blogs and just hanging out.

      Boring Travel Day to Cape Town

      ... or apologies, but we didn't care as we just wanted to get on the road.

      The trip back was a tad boring, as we had seen the sights on the way in. Endless banana plantations were observed. I guess it's one of the world's biggest sources of bananas. Too many to eat, so I guess they export most of them. We stopped at a gas station/Wimpy/convenience store along the way after a couple of hours. It felt good to stretch and get some beverages. ...

      ... try and get the chill out of our bones from the day in the rain. A hot shower also helped and we then headed to dinner. We'd decided to take a cab, because we'd seen that there was an option of having wines which matched the dishes for the 6-course tasting menu which we were planning on having. So since it was our last night in South Africa, we would go all out. We ended up asking at the hotel reception about the cabs out front and they confirmed that they were ...
