An Adventure in Cape Town.

Cape Town is the tourist hub of South Africa, steeped in history, food, art and an eclectic group of inhabitants, it is clear to see why.

I decided to take a walk along Long Street, a host to various cafe’s and unique trinket shops and a few old book stores ( the reason I was there in the first place). As well as visit the Company Gardens.

My First stop was “Open House”, a winner of the Western Cape Government Public Art Competition. The art work was created by Jacques Coetzer to host open mic poetry reading, theatre productions and many more. Not going to lie, I was tempted to qoute some Romeo and Juliet.

I then popped into a little book shop calles Clarke’s Bookshop, a quaint second hand book store with floor to ceiling bookshelves and a cotage inspired interior, in other words a book nerd’s paradise.

The last stop on my mini trip to town was the Company Gardens. With streets covered with overhanging trees, the Company Gardens offers a tranquil place to have lunch or to enjoy sometime alone time outside.

Manu Squirells call the Company Gardens their home and many are willing to come and say hello in exchange for  treat of course, beware of the pigeons though, they tend to swarm.

And that was it for my short but certainly enjoyable trip to town.
