A week has past and I thought I should give you a little update on what I´ve been up to so far.
The flight went well, but both me and V was of course super tired after a long day of travelling. 12 hours of good sleep did however bring us back to normal right away 🙂
When you travel somewhere you always need a few days to settle down, acclimatize yourself, get to know the surroundings, do some groseries and stuff. I feel though that we, part from all that, have done a lot of great things this first week. One of the first things we did was to go to the national park at the Cape of Good Hope.
It was as beautiful as I remembered it and to my delight we did see baboons from a very close distance. A family of baboons passed us by as we were parked next to a road, so we managed to take some nice photos 🙂
One day we went to Langebaan which is a nice place for kitesurfing, especially for beginners since the kite spot is a lagoon with knee deep water. Perfect for the one who still is learning to get up on the board 😉
Me myself havn't been out on the water yet, but will hopefully have my first session later this week as the wind comes back to Cape Town. I did however take some photos of other kitesurfers the other
day when it was quite windy, almost too windy...
The table mountain has also been conquered, for me personally for the 4th time. The climb up this time took two hours and forty minutes. The way up itself is an adventure and once
you reach the top you´re rewarded with a fantastic view over the ocean and the city of Cape Town. Me and V also treated ourselves with an well deserved ice cold beer 🙂
On the whole the first week has been great! The house where we live is the same as last time I was here, so you already know what it's like. Either way the place is as nice as before and the other guests that currently are staying here are nice too. Some returns here every year so some guys are actually familiar faces to me.
