I fell in love with this place. This country. This beautiful city.
Even before I stepped off the plane. I remember being in such ‘awe’ looking out the window. Over 20 hours of traveling, I was tired, body a bit tart, and ready to stretch my legs out on this unexplored country. I was snapping photos, completely mesmerized when the Spanish guy next to me ( who could clearly tell it was my first time ) says ” Wait until you get off the plane, it’s even more beautiful” He told not one lie.
I remember leaving and feeling like Capetown was home. It genuinely felt like a place I could live after being in 5 years in Asia. While I’m still getting to know my new stomping grounds, here are the reasons why I decided to call this “home”.
