– Queuing methods at grocery stores and movie theaters
– At your own risk
– Shark diving
– A different culture to learn from
– the startups/friends at 88mph
– The Woodstock Exchange
– Savanna Dry Cider
– Stellenbosch (wine country)
– The dog’s bollocks (burgers)
– Rooftop movie watching
– Guesthouses
– Road trips
– Running at Sea Point
