Travel Blogs from Cape Town
Finally, we're in Cape Town.
What a totally beautiful city surrounded by mountains starting with Table Mountain, it's most famous landmark.
We drove to Cape of Good Hope yesterday and were not disappointed.
Today we're driving to Stellenboesch, the beautiful wine city near Cape Town.
... the grey skies were starting to clear and our tummies were grumbling. Cat and I were really in the mood for some seafood and one of the first places we got to was Harbour house restaurant. They had great views of the harbour and a lunch deal of three courses for R170 (about 12 pounds). If anyone has been wondering why I don’t just use a pound sign it’s because I bought my laptop in NZ and it doesn’t have one on the keyboard! I ...

How has this hotel rated in the past?

You owe yourself this treat!!
