Sunset in Cape Town

It was a sad day in Cape Town with Shannon’s departure. She’s off to Cairo as I write this. We’ve had an amazing couple of months and can’t believe it’s coming to an end. My sadness was briefly distracted with the sight of a beautiful rainbow during sunset. It’ll be a long two months, but… Continue reading Sunset in Cape Town

Mweb 88mph Overview Video

Mweb is trying to steal Arnaud and my thunder, but I’d say they did a nice job of it in their video they put out about 88mph.

Sunday Bike Day

Sunday was my day to try to keep busy since Shannon wasn’t around. My genius solution was to kill myself with a long bike ride. Sure, it wasn’t that daunting, but I saved the hard part for last. My trek took me through the city center, past the V&A waterfront, around Mouille Point, along Sea… Continue reading Sunday Bike Day

Cape Town Wind

I’ve talked about it before, but on March 30th we had some serious wind in Cape Town. It hit 70km/h gusts. The wind was so strong it was blowing water from the tops of the white peaks in open water. We traveled to Hout Bay this day and sand was being blown across the road.… Continue reading Cape Town Wind

Lunch in Heaven

I’m a big backlogged at the moment with my posts so I’ll try to fill you all in soon. So let’s start with Heaven. A couple of weeks ago Shan and I made the decision to get out of town for the weekend and headed to Hermanus. It’s a great beach town and I’ll post… Continue reading Lunch in Heaven

Shan’s First Departure

I say first departure because she’ll be gone one week and then returning here for 4 days and then she’ll be leaving Cape Town (note my sad face as I write this). She’s off with her family on a week-long trip through Botswana and Zimbabwe. I’m very jealous and sorry to see them leave, but… Continue reading Shan’s First Departure

Savoy Cabbage

Taking a trip to Cape Town then this is definitely a restaurant to consider. It’s a small restaurant hidden up Hout, away from the Long St turmoil. The food is excellent. It’s not the cheapest place, but a good value for the high quality. The item we were told we had to try was the… Continue reading Savoy Cabbage

Kresten’s Place

The founder of 88mph has been very generous in having the group over on many occasions. I thought I’d share some pics of the place because it’s ridiculous.

Our Day Off

Thursday was Human Rights Day here in Cape Town. Due to a last minute cancellation of our boat cruise we opted for a picnic at a winery. I have no idea how to pronounce it but we spent the day at Buitenverwachting. We had our own private table and 4 large platters of bite-sized food… Continue reading Our Day Off

The Dogs Bollocks

Last night we met up with Grant from Innovate the Cape. His dinner suggestion was The Dogs Bollocks. We’re happy he made this suggestion. The ‘restaurant’ is located in the Fringe. It’s in a dark alley with no signage and pretty easy to miss. You definitely wouldn’t just stumble across it, but it’s worth searching… Continue reading The Dogs Bollocks
