Travel Blogs from Cape Town


A travel blog entry by glaro

Staying for a stopover and an other hike in Capetown, I took the cheap and very convenient public bus from the hostel to the train station. Also the train to Muizenberg and Simon's Town is a nice ride. You can always hop off and on the train in between. That's what we did. In Simon's Town just go to the Waters Edge beach. With some luck you you …

The cab couldn't make it up the last part, too steep, so we hiked up. It's closed. Womp womp womp. The family who ran the restaurant still lived there and came out to talk to us. She told us they had closed just ...

Cape of Good Hope Driving Tour

A travel blog entry by lisabraz


... in intensity as we ascended the rock staircases, climbing closer to the lighthouse. That focal point lost all meaning, at least to me, because the whole experience became one where all concentration was pinpointed on grasping, hand over hand, the railing. I have to say it was quite annoying when I would come across another person hanging onto the railing and would have to let go to get around them (particularly when it was a seemingly able-bodied man).
