The day was finally here! We are on our way to Cape Town. We’ve been dreaming about this day for months. For now it is time to leave Jozi behind and head to Cape Town from Lanseria Airport. My mother and my sister took us to the airport and we had a pre-flight celebration at the airport.
Flying from Lanseria airport is very convenient for us as we stay very close.
In less than 2 hours we were at the Mother City! We hired a car and picked it up at the airport. From the airport we went to Belville where friends of my husband stay. We had a braai and the next day we went to do some sightseeing. Bloubergstrand was of course one of our first stops.
We also went to the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront and there we visited the Aquarium. What a treat!
We didn’t visit Saldanha for the above. We went there for the fish. There are a few fish factories there and the fish are not expensive. My husband went there for the bokkoms. (A dried fish. It is a lot like biltong. Some say it is a delicacy- I beg to differ. We also went to Langebaan (20km North of Saldanha. There we had the best meal at a great restaurant.by
