So I dunno if you’ve heard this already, but Cape Town has been voted the nr 1 travel destination in the world on Tripadvisor!!! How freakin’ awesome is that!?! Then again, they’re really just confirming what Capetonians have known all along…
Now, who makes up the rest of the top 10? In second place (just a nice way of saying “big ass loser”) we have Sydney. haha. Everyone knows South Africans love making fun of Australians (just some light hearted competition) – so this is just perfect! Then there’s:
3. Machu Picchu, Peru
4. Paris, France
5. Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
6. New York city, USA
7. Rome, Italy
8. London, UK
9. Barcelona, Spain
10. Hong Kong, China
I’ve been lucky enough to already see numbers 4 – 7. Number 3 has always been on my “must see” list, and I’m thinking Spain will be my next overseas adventure. So I’m gonna work my way through this top 10 in no time.
This news I’m sure is also a huge dent in the egos of all those annoying Joburg people who always try and put Cape Town down by saying stupid stuff like: “so what if you guys have a bloody mountain and the ocean… we have plenty of cool stuff as well”. Um… no, you don’t… if you did, you would be on this list… seriously… now you can just shut the hell up. You lose. haha.
So why do I love this city so much? Well for one thing, this is what I get to wake up to every single morning:
Then there are the world class beaches, the amazing restaurants & night life, the awesome shopping, the beautiful winelands, and the list goes on and on and on… It’s simply everything your heart could possibly desire, all in one spot. This is my home. I might flirt with other cities and countries from time to time, but I will always know where I’m truly happy. This is where I belong…
Ciao for now. xxx
