October and November are wonderful Months to be in Cape Town. It’s not too hot, and tourist season hasn’t begun which on one hand means there is no holiday, “vibe” yet, but there is a proverbial “calm before the storm” if you will.
So, what does a Capetonian do in this calm, you may ask?
Well, as a student, technically all time spent away from my desk this term has been some form of procrastination, but here are some noteworthy things that I got up to.
I became a tourist in my own city by staying at the gorgeous Protea Hotel in Bantry Bay.
I had lazy days, drinking tea out of the cheeriest yellow mug from Le Creuset South Africa.
And speaking of tea, my Mom discovered, The Tea Merchant, and online and physical store specialising in all things tea-related, absolutely amazing! I’m in love with their organic chamomile.
What would a Cape Town summer be without some hikes on Table Mountain? I took it easy for the first one, and hiked the Pipe Track.
Donna and I hung out at Albert St Studios in Woodstock, and admired the graffiti.
We also hung out at Superette in Woodstock.
I visited an old favourite hotspot, Protea Hotel Fire and Ice in the CBD and was pleasantly surprised at the outcome of their recent remodel. Stunning!
And, last but not least, a current and everlasting favourite: My Adidas Element Soul training shoes.
Anything you’re loving at the moment? Or any great, new place I should visit in Cape Town?

And, Happy Monday
