What can I say? Cape Town is simply one of the more visually arresting spots on this planet. Where else can you get a mountain that mesmerizing and the melding of two ferocious seas? Yeah…nowhere. Just look at the dumb grin on my face! I was giddy and I remain entranced by the city today. I am hoping to return and do a book on South Africa someday soon….!
WINE TASTING IN THE CAPE WINELANDS
As part of my fabulous tour through South Africa, courtesy of Giltedge Travel, I got to sample some of the fabulous area wines. From Franschhoek to Stellenbosch to Constantia – I drank (clearly refusing to spit, I mean really!) my way merrily through the region.
A special treat was had at the Graham Beck wineries where we were invited aboard a riverboat lunch cruise complete with homemade pies, chocolate pudding and enough wine to have me contemplating an afternoon swim.
