Single in another City

I did it. I went on my first, spontaneous, impulsive, escapist, solo holiday. I booked a ticket (thank you kulula sale), rented a car, and solicited spare rooms / couches from friends in Cape Town. Note to CT friends: don't say "come visit anytime" - it might just happen at anytime ;)

I have never rented a car on my own.

Last time I went to Cape Town was just when the realisation of impending doom divorce dawned on us.

Cape Town wooed me with clear skies and 30 degree (Celsius) weather. So here's what I did, mostly solo, during my 3.5 days in the Mother City:

1.  Ice Cream on the Sea Point Promenade overlooking the swimming pools

5. Lunch and visiting the hand-made teddies at Taunina in Woodstock

6. Late afternoon beer, leading to wine leading to dinner at the Woodstoc…
