guest post: south africa.

If anyone has heard me talk about my travels, you have heard me mention my favorite place on earth.  Cape Town.  Hands down, no question.  It is a place of incredible, awe-inspiring beauty, but its pulse is more than skin deep.  When you are there, you can feel that you are on the tip of Africa, of the beginning of humanity.  I can’t explain it.  It has just always held a special place in my heart from when I lived there in 2003 and from when I came last year.

This vacation was different for me, because it was the first time I was able to share something that I love with the people that mean the most to me.  Chris absolutely loved it (which I confirmed him by asking every 5 minutes) and we packed our days full with fun and relaxing activities.  Here are some of my favorite pics.

We started off with some shopping in the Waterfront area…

And for anyone who didn’t hear me bragging, our house was absolutely phenomenal.  Who wouldn’t be in love with a city, when we stayed at an amazing, modern oasis with views of the best beach in Cape Town – Camps Bay.

Oh, did I mention the view from our bedroom?  This was one of the sunsets we watched.

We took a day trip to the southern tip of the Cape Peninsula and hiked up to Cape Point.  Not to mention the phenomenal drive along the coast to get there…

The last two images are from the drive back to our house.  Sometimes I feel the scenery is so beautiful, so perfect, it looks fake.  I assure it’s not.  :)

And for a happy ending, here is my adorable husband.  He road me around one day when I wanted to take pictures.  He is actually covering himself from the sun due to a deadly sunburn the day before.  LOL.
