One thing that constantly impresses me about Cape Town is how active the locals are. On our 5AM climb up Lions Head (which, mind you, involves hand holds and ladders), I felt like a bonafide bad ass... only to be passed by person after person running to squeeze in some pre-work exercise. On a mountain. That requires rock climbing. I guess this is what it feels to live in a super active, outdoorsy place like Colorado... and it’s totally a vibe I can get behind!
Remember the days of travel pre social media, when you didn’t stress over WiFi to perfect your stories or snaps? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On our latest two-week trip to Cape Town, I did my best to unplug and enjoy the moment... and what a difference it made! I’m still connected at the hip to my camera, but this time, I was fully focused on the art of photography over the nagging impulse to update a feed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Pictured here is @frankaf17 letting me play around with my new @sonyalpha Camera settings (and our silhouettes) atop Cape Town’s Signal Hill.
The incredible scene that is Lions Head, a Cape Town mountain that offers epic views and (for me in “vacay mode”), some much needed cardio. How do you stay fit during your travels? #capetown
In a few short days, we’ll be making our way back to Africa for a 10-day trip through Cape Town & the surrounds. Until then, I’ll be day dreaming 24/7 about my favorite African adventure: safari. So. Soon. So. Soon! Have you been? (Pictured here: lions playing in East Africa’s Serengeti National Park)
