VisAdventures Of Her – I Believe I Can Fly

779

In the period of my silence, the dollar has gone up astronomically- along with the price of tomatoes and petrol and Noble hooked Chioma. (Disclaimer: these events are totally unrelated) It’s been a while since my last post (I do hope I have been missed a tiny bit) and like they say time and tide waits for no one. Though dollar cost I have managed to get in a memorable trip to one of my favourite cities in the world, Cape Town! I do believe God will pick up the call and assist me with my 5 bedroom villa overlooking Camps Bay when the time is right. I digress…

So though it was not my first (or last) time in Cape Town, it was a whole new experience as I was spending the most part of the trip in the sleepy Bellville area which houses the University of Stellenbosch. With a hectic schedule planned I was only going to have 1 free day and 2 nights to do anything interesting. Ever the lover of a travel challenge I made a thorough itinerary for my free time. *cracks knuckles*

Fast forward from Sunday to Friday night and the time had come for me to let down my hair and whip out that itinerary. First on the list was a stop at Canal Walk, a humongous mall with over 400 hundred stores.

Luckily, the plan was to grab some food at a restaurant my colleague recommended highly for steak so I was walking through the mall like…

Blinders on

 

Dinner, service and drinks were such a non-event that I didn’t even take pictures. Not one to lose faith so soon, we moved on to the recommended bar for the first stop. Shamefully, I forgot the name of the place, all I know is music was fab, drinks were top notch and the crowd was live! It didn’t hurt that you got 5 free shots if you ordered shisha!

No name!

 

Second stop for the night was a bourgeois spot called Coco. You would think there was some royalty permanently stationed in there with their guest list door policy and a security reinforced VIP area but alas it was just for the hype.  The music and good company made it worth the bother. As is common across places I have visited in Africa lately, Nigerian music is all the rave so I was singing along to familiar songs all the evening.

Ok, so all of this was just warm up to the main highlight of the trip. *cue inspiring music* It was an early Saturday morning that I had visualized for a while – I donned my black long sleeved t-shirt, black leather pants and my cheery EBS Summer trainers then strode out into the sunrise to the waiting van. I was whisked away swiftly and I did not have much time to take in the lightly streaked morning sky and undulating landscape. Before I knew it, we had arrived and I had no longer to ponder the fate I chose that fateful chilly morning…

Ready to go!
Ready to go!

 

I was going skydiving!!!!! Hehe One of my bucket list items for the longest time was finally here! *cue Cielo’s crazy*

Well, there is not much else to say except, WOW! It was the most exhilarating and scary thing I have ever done in my life and I would definitely do it again! #sorrymum

One would think that would be it for the day right? After that, nothing more interesting could be planned to make the trip just as eventful… right? Wrong!

So as luck would have it, a group of us were interested in another adrenaline rush filled activity and they had a spot open just before lunch. Off we went downtown to the Central Business District to have some Gun Fun.

After a quick registration and safety briefing we selected our weapon of choice from several options including the 007 package, save the world among others. Being the only girl in the group I decided to rep with the Femme Fatale package that had pink guns to boot.

After a hectic day, it was lovely to end up at the V&A waterfront for a spot of lunch and shopping before heading to rest up for the trip home the next morning.
