Postcard From | Cape Town 2016 (Part 2)

It’s been a little over a month since I got back from Cape Town so get ready for some wanderlust-inducing photos! I can’t help the fact that Cape Town is such a scenic and breathtaking city, so no filters needed on any of these at all!

I’ll be writing a little bit about my experience in greater details over the next couple of weeks/months. I’ve gotten the drafts started so stay tuned for reviews on tours and day trips I took. Let me know if you’re interested in knowing anything specific about my trip and I’m happy to put that together for you!

In the 2 weeks that I was in South Africa, I spent 4 days surfing, another 5 at Kruger for the safari, and 4 days in Cape Town, the city. Although I’ve been to the city before and spent a pretty intensive 3 days (3 day trips there) last year, I just can’t help but want to discover new spots that I didn’t get a chance to visit. I ended up re-doing a couple of things I had already done, and made a point of going out of my comfort zone and try a couple of new places!

While in Cape Town, I made use of Uber so much since it was so convenient and inexpensive! During the day when I felt safe walking alone by myself, I would make it a point to walk from Sea Point to the Waterfront. However during the evening, I won’t hesitate to Uber, and I’ve had nothing but good experiences with all the drivers. I must have taken at least 20 trips, mostly within the city, but a few that took me to the airport, and to Muizenberg to do a bit of surfing.

Feel free to use my Uber referral link (or use code: stephaniel241) to get a free ride (up to $20) the next time you’re in South Africa. This may not sound much in Canadian dollars, but this is practically a FREE ride from the airport to city bowl (I only spent R150 which is equivalent to about $13 CAD!) So… you’re welcome!
