College is on holiday for a few weeks at the moment, and I was fortunate enough to be able to get some last-minute cheap flights down to Cape Town last weekend.
I stayed with a lovely couple called Jim and Carol (originally from Newcastle) who looked after me very well indeed. Whilst there I was able to visit Robben Island, Table Mountain, Cape Point, Groot Constantia vineyard, and the V&A Waterfront.
Other highlights included:
- Spectacular weather (despite various warnings about visiting at this time of year…)
- Getting to drive an old VW Golf (always wanted one of those)
- Meeting the drummer from Guns n Roses up Table Mountain (see photo blow)
