          Our hostel was so fantastic and I could honestly dedicate a whole blog
          to why I loved it so much as well. My friends and I rented a room
          to ourselves and we had a perfect view of table mountain. It was quiet in the
          room, but lively downstairs with a coffee shop that turned into a bar below. It
          was always packed with locals and backpackers a like which made it a really
          great place to meet people. The location was prime...we walked all the time. It
          was within walking distance of Long Street (the street that has all the bars,
          shops and restaurants) and of the city center...wherever you need
          really. And when we did need a taxi, the staff was happy to help.The staff was
          so so fantastic. To letting us use the showers and holding our luggage before
          we checked in and after we checked out...to taking us to a great bar our first
          night. They helped us arrange a paragliding trip, surfing, places to eat...they
          knew our names, talked to us about our day, just truly wonderful people that
          always had a smile on their face.

          So lucky with the weather in Cape Town after the awful stuff we had in Hermanus - clear blue skies and warm sunshine.

          The drive from Hermanus to CT via False Bay (with views across to the Cape of Good Hope), and Shark Bay really is stunning.

          Once in Cape Town has a loud, young backpacker vibe which left us initially a bit …

          Arriving into Cape Town

          Todays the day we arrive into the beautiful city of Cape Town! Automatically, I just felt at home. I hadn't been back to Cape Town since 2010 and from what I remember of the city (as I stay with family in the outer suburbs), Cape Town has become more hip, trendy with loads of new juice bars, and a clean-up of some of the older worn down stores. The …

          A travel blog entry by annaandmike

          Today we were doing one of our must do things in South Africa, this is the Robben Island tour. The tour has it's own building on the docks, called the Nelson Mandela gateway, which we arrived 45 mins early feeling pretty smug. But when we got there the queue was already snaking through the building and up two flights of stairs.
          The boat th...
