Breathtaking Cape Town!

I’m finally getting a quiet moment to myself to actually sit down and catch up with you.  So far the past two days have been filled with trying to get settled in our volunteer house, back-to-back tours, sight seeing and mingling with the locals all while trying to beat the jet lag that seems to be hitting us like a ton of bricks!

The volunteer house is absolutely perfect and is nestled into a beautiful ocean side town of Muizenberg in which we share with other volunteers. So far we have met people from all over the world, Australia, England, Ireland, US, Toronto and even a sweet lady from my hometown of Peterborough who lives only minutes from where I grew up…small world!  The house is always bustling with happy voices and filled with the smells of home cooking from our in house chef.  Honestly we are spoiled!

The first night in Muizenberg was amazing as we mingled with the locals at a Friday Market.  The market had everything you could imagine from locally cooked fresh foods, bake goods, art work, local wines and beer and live bands.  It was so hard to not indulge and join in on the local festivities by sampling some of the local dishes and delicious wines!

For the next few days we will be staying in the beautiful city of Cape Town.  Cape Town has got to be one of the most breathtaking cities in the world expanding at the foot of Table Mountain, which is one of the 7 Wonders of Nature and surrounded by the South Atlantic and Indian oceans.  The views are absolutely stunning and something you will never see anywhere else in the world.  It is a bustling and modern city all while having a cozy small town feel.  The restaurants in my opinion are 5 star and offer fresh dishes at a reasonable cost.  As for the wine, South Africa has some the best tasting wines in the world.  As many of you know, I enjoy a glass of wine from time…all about balanced lifestyle!  By far Cape Town is one of my favorite cities I have ever visited; you have to Google it and learn more about this incredible city and what you are missing out on.

One of my favorite moments today was enjoying a leisurely lunch at a local outdoor restaurant.  The coble stone street was filled with action of local children entertaining to the crowds walking by.  It gave me a chance to slow down and appreciate the beauty and the culture of this unique country and to most importantly appreciate how fortunate I’ am to have a life filled with abundance.

It is time to head out for dinner and to take in the nightlife of Cape Town.  Chat more tomorrow…
