I met David and Leslie at the One and Only Hotel and from the minute we met we clicked in that is was very obvious that we had a lot in common

 

We first ascended Lions Head where we attained a perspective of Cape Town from 300 Metres above sea level

We stopped in at Tribal Trends

We returned to Cape Town and visited the Ocean Basket in Sea Point for a great fish dinner.


Day 2

Cape Peninsula

 

We started our day by going to the Saturday morning market at the Biscuit Mill in Woodstock - Fantastic experience

After our visit to the biscuit mill we travelled on to the penguin colony at Boulders beach passing Newlands, Claremont, Constantia, Muizenberg, Kalk Bay, Fish Hoek and Simonstown along the way.

It is so very difficult to describe how much I enjoyed touring Leslie and David around the Cape Town and its surrounding region in that our journey together was such an extraordinary experience. We all had such a great time together sharing many stories points of view and  having so much wonderful friendly conversations. Our journey together went by so quickly that at stages I felt it was unfair that I had to bid this wonderful couple farewell so soon. Two wonderful days with two magnificent people who were an absolute pleasure to have in my car with me on tour.

THANKS FOR SUCH A GREAT JOURNEY
LESLIE AND DAVID
