Hello and Welcome

Hi and welcome to my new blog on my life in Cape Town! This is my first post.

I have started this blog to share the things that I love about living in Cape Town!  I am incredibly lucky to stay in such a beautiful city, quite possibly the most beautiful city...but as many Cape Townians will tell you, life gets in the way and we don't always find the time to visit The Mother City's attractions as "local" tourists. Hopefully blogging about this wonderful place  will help to get me out in my own city more often and inspire me to look with renewed gratitude at life and the Mother City's Magical qualities.

The places that I share here are my personal favourite spots to relax, eat, shop, etc. These are places that I return to over and over again. I do hope you find something of interest and that my musings will inspire you to either visit Cape Town or to just come along for a blog visit to our beautiful city where ever you might find yourself in the world!

 It would be great if you shared your favourite things about our City in comments on my posts and then once in a while I will do a "Reader's Favourite Jaunts" thus others will be able to use the info and pass it on. If you have been a past tourist to Cape Town tell me what you enjoyed and how you found our city, please.

Of course, living in such a beautiful place any photographs will be most welcome. I am quite snap happy myself and just love photos so feel free to share away! 

Although I am not the best of photographers myself and need to learn loads, so I am always happy to see your pictures please!!

Some of the posts  of my favourite hang outs will include, restaurants, shopping, markets, sights and sounds, photos, wine lands, surrounding areas to mention a few.

Blogs seem to take on a life of their own and often go in their own direction but in future I hope to share an events calender and any other suggestions from you would be welcome and considered.

I also hope to focus on the Northern suburbs, "Behind the Boerewors Curtain" and  the Wine lands  where I seem to hang out quite a yes)

So look out for:

Behind The Boerewors Curtain ~ Life in The Northern Suburbs

...and what ever else comes to mind...

So, I invite you to come along with me and let's do Cape Town!
