Cape Town Diaries: Sunset Cruise

I thought I would try a new series of posts where I chronicle all my Cape Town adventures - I might even back-date some of these posts and post about last year's adventures.
For now, we will start with this year's chronicle: during O-week (Orientation Week, basically a two-week fun fest before varsity starts) I took one of the Sunset Cruises that depart from the V&A Waterfront. The cost of these yacht cruises is not as expensive as one would think ranging from R250-R350 per person for a 90 minute/2 hour cruise including complimentary bubbly and it takes you just beyond the harbour where you can see all the wonders of the Cape Town skyline (both building and mountain) painted in the pink rays of the setting sun. I highly recommend doing this cruise during summer when the wind is not as violent at night and its still fairly warm by the evening time and you can take in all the beauty without freezing your socks off.

Jewel of the Free State

On my last weekend of holiday at home, we decided to venture out of the province and visited a quaint corner of the country close to Clarens in the Free State. The holiday lodge was surrounded by mountains and tranquility and it was a weekend filled with putt-putt, quad-biking and wonderful little eating places - all the key ingredients to a weekend away in the Drakensberg.
