I wrote this post while in South Africa, but didn’t post until today. I guess because it was about wine and vineyards, here’s secretly hoping that like wine it might get better with age 🙂
I am taking you to one of the world’s oldest vineyards since 168Os or so. This is my first time in a vineyard & cannot explain the beauty it holds, the never-ending sight of acres of wineries. Neon greens and pink sunset to look forward to.
Constantia is a suburb near Cape Town and holds some of the ridiculously expensive villas in the country blessed with woodlands & mountain as the backdrop. Our guide told me even Princess Diana used to have a home here so you do the math.
Needless to say, the air was unadulterated, the wine was nuanced, and the sun was perfect to compensate the nip. Kids were playing without a care in the world while grown kids were swirling and sipping on the liquid gold.
It was a perfect Afternoon. We made friends from around the world. One of the Brazillian claimed to be Neymar’s brother wearing his T-shirt. I believed him.. drinks made everything looks real.
Pictures cannot do justice to the beauty this place holds or even Capetown holds in general. Even the Traffic Signals are the sight to behold overlooking Table Mountain or Lion’s Head or enormous ocean.
We wouldn’t have done justice to Capetown if left without a day dedicated to Beach. The camps bay beach does the honor with the magnificent view of Twelve Apostolos at the back with white sands and chilled ocean water. We spent our last day soaking the sun on Beach and later walked to the hotel.
It was once a dream to visit these places like a chapter waiting to be written in the book of my life.
I hope you enjoyed the view. Do share if you
Do share if you liked the blog and have been to or want to go to Capetown.
Cape Town is the fucking amazing place to be in a lifetime. Strategically located between mountains and Ocean with a right mix of eclectic shimmering blue beaches, pink sunsets, white sands & an inspiring history. Just the way I like it ♥
Now I understand why Cape Town is a favorite holiday destination for celebrities around the world. but I have my own reasons to fall in love with the Cape, it’s the sound of waves hitting the rocks, Seagulls squawking was music to my ears, the Stalker Table mountain- it follows you all over the place, delicious vineyards, warm happy people & thriving marine life.
Places like these bring out the best in you and make you realize life throws back what you throw at her. Feed her with Love, Passion, and pleasures It will bounce back. See Capetown turned me all philosophical 😉
If you have the tendency to get restless after seeing holiday pictures then Stop & Beware this could be fatal to watch and may hypnotize you to leave impromptu. and it’s going to be a very long post because capturing a piece of heaven takes effort.
Few of the things we did in Cape Town 😀 which can be shared publicly 😉 😆
1. Cape Peninsula: Cape of Good Hope is believed to be the southernmost tip of the African Continent beyond which lies the kaleidoscopic Sea. It’s inside the Table Mountain Natural park which not only has good hope but Cape point, Ostriches, fynbos which is kind of bushes which grow nowhere else on earth and is endangered. Apart from which there lies a point of where Vasco da Gama set foot and their born an awesome country called Suid Afrikaans.
2. Simon’s Town:Cute little harbor town famous for adventurous water sports activities like windsurfing & swimming with sharks 😡 Simon also houses endangered life but now well conserved African Penguins and Baboons.
Cape conserves and respect anything and everything that breaths.Thing to Learn from them.
This is the first time I have seen Penguin and they are quite disciplined, always walk in line, go for the swim together eat together. quite fascinating to watch.
3. Victoria and Albert Water Front:Proudly named after Queen of England and her elder son Albert, V&A Waterfront is one of the most poised Social space in SA. The area is surrounded by ocean and canal and its house owners include Madonna, Oprah, and Leonardo. There’s always live music bands and parties ongoing and Luxurious Yachts anchored just like we have cars parked outside ours. It’s nice to spend evenings in such places or mental balance. I kid you not 🙄
More Magic from Capetown to be continued in next Post. Bear with me..
