February and March are some of the best months to visit the Mother City. The wind has died down, it’s hot, and best of all, the crowds are gone! My boys and I spent 2 weeks in Cape Town recently and we had so much fun. We swam, we explored, we relaxed and we ate ice cream every day. Yes. Every day. And yes, I am paying for all this Summer Fun! I didn’t take photos of all of our adventures, I am trying to be more present in our lives.
Look, I am no Stepford Wife. I think it’s very important for my boys to understand that I am a working mother who loves what I do. But when I spend time with them, I want to be 100% there. It is difficult, but I am trying and sometimes I can only manage 85%. Anyone else have this problem?
Here are some of our highlights from our Summer Fun in Cape Town!
Summer Fun in Cape Town
We always visit our favourite places when we are in Cape Town: Green Point Park, V & A Waterfront (for Ice Cream and shopping) and, if we can, we hop on the Cape Town Red Bus. We also love spending time at the beach and swimming at Sea Point Pavillion.
So, on top of all of our usual spots, we discovered the popular Clay Cafe in Hout Bay and the ducks at Vergenoegd Wine Estate – full blogs of these new finds will come a little bit later.
Travelling with kids
I am not going to go into a whole long blog about travelling with kids. But I must tell you, I love travelling with my boys. I thought it was going to be a nightmare travelling solo with two young kids – but most of the time, it’s been rather rewarding.
They are quite used to flying and road trips. They are pretty easy going (most of the time) and adaptable – but only if there is something physical for them to do. It doesn’t really matter what – swimming, climbing, jumping, etc. Some way for them to release their energy.
I look forward to many years of travelling with these two curious boys and have planned some daring adventures for the future.
