Simon’s Town, South Africa (map)
Welcome to Africa!
Well, we finally moved on to a new continent and… We LOVE IT! We arrived to South Africa completely exhausted and sleep deprived, but after a great night’s rest we went out to begin exploring this incredibly beautiful country.
Our first full day in Cape Town, South Africa, we decided to take our rental car out for a full day’s drive (on the wrong side of the road might I add which is strange). We headed out of Cape Town down to Simon’s Town to see the well known South African Penguins of Boulder’s Beach. After grabbing a lunch of Fish and Chips we ventured down to Cape Point National Park. Most people still believe that the Cape of Good Hope is the Southern most point on the African continent. Sadly this is not the case, HOWEVER, it IS the most South-western point of the African continent!
The views from Cape Point and the drive that day were breathtaking. The scenery reminded us of our vacations in Hawaii and California. After 3 months on the road and with 9 countries under our belt, we actually said for the first time to one another that this could be a place we could actually consider moving to. Don’t worry though…We Go RTW is still moving on!
