Default Cape Town - My hometown

Inspired by Frans' photographs of Rotterdam, I thought I'd introduce & share a bit of Cape Town with you.
Whether or not you've been to Cape Town, I hope you enjoy this short pictorial. Most of the photographs are mine while some are borrowed from the net.


Situated on the southern tip of Africa and nestled in the shadow of Table Mountain (now one of the 7 wonders of the world) you'll find beautiful Cape Town, a cosmopolitan city and home to around 4 million.

Cape Town is well known for its natural beauty (figuratively speaking of course!)



Stunning beaches that go on for miles

The magnificent Cape winelands (established 300+ years ago)




Many of the historic wine estates boast magnificent homesteads in the Cape Dutch architectural style - one of my favourite areas

If you have a bucket list, make sure Cape Town's on it.
It is widely regarded as one of the top 10 places to visit before you die





This is my hometown - trust you've enjoyed a glimpse of it

Great pics! I worked in ZA from '06-'09, got to see a lot: Joburg, Sun City, Durban, Port Elizabeth, Drakensberg, safari at Kapama and last but not least Cape Town which I really enjoyed. The picture of the young lady you posted is on Camps Bay beach, I believe, with the 12 apostles behind her. My favorite spot!

Awesome photos! Thanks for sharing. Definitely a place I'd like to visit. Several places in South Africa in general. Maybe a Springboks game in Newslands Stadium perhaps?

Nice. However I do worry about the future of that place. I've noticed that the "native folks" have been getting more and more vocal about those that have been luckier in life, so to speak.

I'm thinking that things can go downstream quite easily, sadly...

Cheers Funk - although the way the Boks are playing at the moment you may want to give Newlands a miss!
