After seeing a couple more places in Johannesburg, it was time to set sail. I had also been to the Nelson Mandela Square, seen the Nelson Mandela Bridge, gone gaming at the Montecasino, been to a couple of courts, malls and art galleries. I had equally spent a ton on taxi fare before discovering UBER was actually a cost efficient option. Johannesburg had had enough of me and it was time to storm Capetown!
I was so excited to be bound for Capetown, even though I was sure going to miss Johannesburg. The serenity and calmness was just so unique. However, the rush and tourist attraction sites associated with Capetown made me indifferent about leaving Johannesburg even though I’d later miss the calmness of it all. I was so enthusiastic to be on my way to a city that was in 2014, named the best place in the world to visit by both The New York Times and The Telegraph .
On my first day, as usual after check in, I couldn’t wait to get around. I was so thrilled to be somewhere new and the atmosphere sure felt a whole lot different as it was several degrees colder in Capetown and a whole lot windier and believe me when I tell you that I almost got gusted by the wind. This was somewhere close to the Capetown railway station just a few feet away from the my ciTi bus station on Adderley street. I was at the Company Gardens, a public park and heritage site where I also visited the South African Museum & Planetarium and also the South African Arts Gallery, although pictures were not allowed, if you are a fan of arts and you are ever in Capetown, then it’s a must visit as the creativity within those walls would blow your mind.
Later on just to catch a view of the gushing sea and relax I headed for green point and next for Camps bay. I was also at the green market square where South African arts and crafts were being sold.
