Well hello there
So I promised a part 2 and… Here she is!
I’m pretty impressed that I’m actually writing this post, I’ve been so lethargic this week, I don’t know if it’s my body telling me something but I’m barely getting anything done. I don’t knew if it was fashion week or me just needing a holiday from this holiday but I’m not functioning at optimum levels.
What I didn’t mention about my Cape Town trip is that
it wasn’t supposed to be longer than a week (in my mind) I booked a one-way ticket but landed up staying almost 3 weeks strong (if it were up to some of my friends I would’ve stayed an extra few days) but alas I was ready to come back home. I always feel pressured to see all my friends when I’m down there so I really did try and just relax and not try to meet up with EVERYONE this time round (sorry guys, love you still).
I must add that if you read my last article you are well aware that I spent most of my time on the southern suburbs but I did manage to get to the usual spots, I deep a really long, very deep walk down Seapoint promenade with chai lattes (bought on the promenade) and high heels in tow, I think every running snob that hurried past me look gave me the evil eye, like wearing my heels was a sin! It was quite stupid of me but in my defense it was a spontaneous walk. What I did realise in retrospect is that I spent a lot of time doing things I would typically never do in Cape Town.
For one…I went on a spa date and used groupons! Yes I’m that girl now! And I love it (thanks Laylaa) you’re always the most entertaining! Even more surprising to me was that I went to rugby games…not one but two! Oh my soul! Okay I won’t lie for the most part I was taking selfies and doing face swops but I really enjoyed the atmosphere barring I had no actual idea on what was happening in the game. I need a rugby for dummies guide anyone willing to help it will be much appreciated?!?!
Another cool thing I did was going to random events in the city, (I promise you there are gig guides and Facebook groups galore) geez I didn’t realize there are so many free events that go down, can Joburg perhaps partake in this? I’m sick of paying for absolutely everything here! In any case this made great memories like crazy wine-glass-in-car drinking to Kehlani (I see you Heloine and Guido) joy rides to crazy almost 2 hour waiting for an event to start and eventually getting told to sit on floors situations! (I lost my mind thanks for calming me down Riska).
And probably a highlight for me was going to visit something who actually stays in Bo-Kaap! This was the coolest experience because
1) I’ve always viewed it as a tourist destination and not somewhere where real people with real lives live
2) those people have the most insane uninterrupted views of table mountain
3) I respect their clutch control game those driveways are mad crazy
It was definitely one of the best Cape Town holidays thus far.
I’m out, have an awesome weekend!
