Unfortunately the time has come around again for us to leave Cape Town. People say you will fall in love with this city and I think we might have done. Hoping to stay just a little bit longer we made a trip to Home Affairs earlier in the week but were told there was no possibility of extending our visa a second time, without first flying home to England 😦
It was nice to catch the start of Spring though. The flowers are out, as are my legs.
We also had time this week to try out Couchsurfing which was a really great experience. The idea behind is that you can stay with locals all around the world or you can become a host yourself and let travelers stay with you.
Our hosts Frieda and Piet were so welcoming and let us stay in their lovely home in Somerset West, just a short journey from Cape Town.
After a fantastic couple of days (thanks so much Frieda and Piet) seeing the local area and feeling very South African, with a rugby match and Braai on the Saturday, we returned to Cape Town. We will be here for a few more days before we hire a car, jump on an intercape bus and cross the border to Botswana!
