The last report ended with us leaving Johannisburg to fly to Capetown. Oh Capetown, beautiful Mothertown! We arrived to see the sun going down over the Table mountain. What a great first impression! We also had another tour guide here, Luidger Pooth. Much better than Eva, although we didn't see him that much. We spent our first night on Upper Longstreet -the party street with lots of restaurants, bars and people. We stubled upon a movie shot of Charlize Theron and participated in a wild party in the background. I'll keep my eyes open for the finished movie!
The next day we did our own hop on hop off tour through Capetown, but again the weather got worse as the day went on. This was the beginning:
And when we decided to go up with a cable car on top of Tablemountain, the view was spectacular:
We didn't see much, but had a lot of fun anyway! We also saw wild seals in the harbour of Capetown near the Victoria and Alfred Mall:
On the next day we traveled on to Mosselbay which is directly on a peninsula and has lots of beautiful beaches. The view from my hotel room was spectacular!
We walked a lot through the town and visited beaches and shops (I bought some fabric here for the Burda Vintage dress).
But my highlight was the whale watching tour we organised the evening we got to Mosselbay. We saw humpback whales and dolphins and seals!
On our second to last day we headed back to Capetown via another beutiful scenic road. Again, the stones and the overall landscape reminded me a lot of the wild west in the USA:
We also did a little whine tasting on the way:
We liked some of the cheeses and wines so much, we bought a bottle of whine and cheese with bread and made a little picknick in the hotel! Actually, we would have liked to dine out and eat the stuff for breakfast, but there was a power shortage while we were looking for a restaurant and everyone sent us off because cooking is not that easy without power... But we had fun anyway!
On the last day we took a final trip through Capetown and then took off for another flight to Johannisburg and then to Frankfurt again.
