I met this honeymoon couple at the Cape Grace Hotel on November 23. We discussed our plans for the next two days whereafter I took them into the city where I sent them on their way to discover Long Street and other parts of the city.


Day 1

Winelands and Kayamandi

 

With Neil at the Villiera winefarm where we had an opportunity to taste some sparkling wines  

 

At Haute Chabriere where we tasted the great wines on this Franschhoek farm

 

After all the winetasting everything started to double up or so it seems (-:)

 

Geoff and Jessica At Freedom Hills winefarm where we had a wonderful lunch and a spectacular view as the above picture shows

 

We stopped in at Kayamandi where we spent times with the children in the dancing classes at the Ikamva Lethu Centre.

 

Geoff an Jessica most certainly did not hesitate to join into the activities.

After our stop at the penguin colony we decided that because of the hefty winds not to to Cape Point. We travelled over Red Hill and onto Scarborough. After Scarborough we drove to Kommetjie and Noordhoek before crossing Chapmans Peak. Thereafter we made our way back to the Cape Grace via Camps Bay and Sea Point. Even though the winds were tricky to handle we had a wonderful day taking in all the scenery from the car as we travelled.

 


The newly wed Adlers were a great couple to tour with. Geoff and Jessica just went with the flow in a very adventurous way resulting in us all having a wonderful time together. There were times when the Adlers, who wanted to see as much as possible in Cape Town, created their own flow and exhaustion simply took over. Notwithstanding they simply got up, brushed themselves off and started up in their very adventurous way of doing things. Just think of it in 9 days the New York Marathon was run, a marriage took place, the long flight between New York and Cape Town was taken, Cape Town was seen on tour, both Geoff and Jessica hopped out of an airplane to do some skydiving and then together they hiked up one of the local mountains in Cape Town viz Lions Head. All of this, barring I assume their marraige, was done just for fun. JJJ  Talk about hectic and dont forget to say happily hectic because that's exactly what it all was about. Overall together we experienced much and learnt lots from each other. I do believe that Geoff and Jessica enjoyed themselves most of the way and I make this statement as the tour was a most enjoyable one for me mainly because I saw them enjoying themselves in the process.  All in all a great tour with a wonderfully energetic and very enthusiastic young couple.

THANKS FOR THE FABULOUS TIME WE SPENT TOGETHER
GEOFF and JESSICA

May I also take this opportunity of thanking you for your generous donation to the children of Kayamandi as well as for your noble intentions of wanting to sponsor a Kayamandi child's education next year.

Thank you so much for your kind words. We too felt a strong family like relationship with you and are grateful for you showing us a wonderful time. You energy and knowledge made our trip amazing. 

The rest of our trip was great but we did miss you and Cape Town. 

Please send us the info on sponsoring a child so that Jessica and I can discuss it further.
