Travel: Lion’s Head, Cape Town


This is my first travel post and I know it seems weird that I am adding this to the blog but I hate that when I take photographs, they just waste away on my memory card with nobody to appreciate them. And of course I don’t want to seem like a creep who posts 20 photos of one place at once on Twitter or Instagram; luckily that’s why we have blogs, you can go all out. My second reason for starting this is to find something that would force me to go out there, to travel, so I’d be able to keep up with content, must keep my reader entertained, and what other way is there but to actually go out and take beautiful pictures and make interesting stories and come share with you?! This year, I’ll be travelling my city, Cape Town. So this is my first travel post, about a special place in the beautiful city of Cape Town, one of the biggest tourists sites, Lion’s Head.

Luckily for me, I live in Cape Town; I really do think I am lucky to live in this city, like I always say, it’s like living in Las Vegas, you’re on holiday everyday. I moved here about a year ago, actually it’s exactly a year and two week today, got a great job after testing the waters at a smaller company, and now that I am a bit settled, I just want to roam and really see the world, appreciate every single bit of it. There is so much to live for, so much we do not do, so much we can do. There is no time to lie in bed and have a lazy day, go out there and live, feel the world, enjoy every bit of the romance. We’ve been given such a beautiful place to exist in, the best we can do is enjoy it, live it, breathe it and eat it. I told myself, instead of wasting days indoors getting bored, I will go out there and just find fun in these amazing things we’ve been given for free. It is amazing, really, how much we have, yet we’re daily putting it to waste. Stop cuddling your pillow, bed, couch, whatever and get out, travel, save money, see the world so at the end of your life, you’d know you’ve lived well.

So, back to the topic of today, the amazing Lion’s Head. I went hiking with a couple of friends the other day (I decided to start outdoor fitness and forfeited the boring ass gym). My fitness coach is brutal, but I guess she really isn’t doing her job if I don’t hate her on training days lol; but she’s a darling too, the absolute best.  It all started to be fun after we got to the top, where we took millions of pictures on the edge, ate, drank A LOT of water and twerked on the top-top of the mountain lol. We took more pictures and started the journey down, which was wayyy more fun than coming up (my entire body still hurts).

No way I was taking all those pictures and wasn’t going to share with the world, if possible. Cape Town is a beautiful place, the view from the top of Lion’s Head is even more amazing. See for yourself or you can even plan a trip to Cape Town, I promise you won’t regret it. And feel free to contact me if you wish to come down here, I’d surely be glad to help in any way I can, it’ll be a blast!


Oh, and I found these lovers at the top, sitting at one corner-edge, oblivious to all the drama going on around them. Love is a beautiful thing, don’t you think?!DSC_1666DSC_1722DSC_1686DSC_1680DSC_1674DSC_1670DSC_1705

Haha! Had to end with that one. Great photo indeed! 😀

    Hi… I actually just left SA a few days ago and I know I have to return. Cape Town was so beautiful and I did a first, paraglide from Signal Hill to Sea point. You live in a beautiful city. I’m jealous.
