Time is flying by and I only have 3 more days left at St. George’s now before I start my last week of volunteering at the Red Cross Children’s Hospital.
The weekend before I went to Port Elizabeth, I went to go see Alex at Ashanti in Cape Town. We decided to (I made him) walk up Table Mountain! I had been at the top of the mountain before when I did my abseiling, but I had still wanted to actually hike up.
So off we went on an approximately 2-hour hike. We weren’t exactly super clever when we decided that hiking at 13:00 on the hottest day in Cape Town so far would be a good idea – but we managed to get up within 2 hours by chugging 2 big water bottles!!
The scenery when walking up Table Mountain is absolutely breath taking! It’s so cool that you can hike up a pretty tall mountain and get an awesome view over a metropolitan city – you can’t do that many places around the world. That’s probably one of the reasons as to why Cape Town was voted #1 place to visit by the Telegraph this year 🙂
Some absolutely gorgeous nature is found all along the hike
It was a great feeling coming to the top and we could see for miles and miles all over Cape Town city seeing as it was such a clear day.

What’s nice about Table Mountain is that you have the possibility to walk quite far even once you’re at the top. So Alex and I decided to walk around on the top and from being in the middle of a huge tourist attraction with hundreds of tourists, you can end up in quite a remote area!
Not a sound or a person – so peaceful!
We (Alex… haha) decided we should take the cable car down. It was nice to catch up with Alex again and it had been such a great day (especially in terms of working on my tan 🙂 )
