Right from a very young age, travelling has been an integral part of my being. My fascination with varied cultures, cuisines, people and lifestyles makes my love for travel grow deeper with every trip.
In the August of 2012, taking a vacation was the best possible decision we took. A worthwhile break I’d say. Every place visited had a mesmerizing story to sustain my interest in it or a strong historic connection behind it… a culturally-rich country.
This time, it was South Africa… a land so beautiful that I was beyond mesmerized and couldn’t stop taking pictures with my DSLR. A 9 day trip and I still couldn’t get enough! It was a 7.5 hour flight and we travelled by their national airline – South African Airways (great service!)
Destinations visited: Capetown (Stellenbosch, Franschhoek, Fish Hoek, Boulder Island), Knysna (Moussel Bay), Port Elizabeth, Sun City, Johannesburg.
South Africa did not come across as a country that belongs to the African subcontinent, considering it falls under a 3rd world continent category.
Hats off to the people who made the place for what it is… an absolute pleasure to visit.
To experience new found respect for Mr. Nelson Mandela, is to feel a whole new sense of evolvement!
