5 Places I need to see in South Africa this year and why.
- Augrabies – The last time I saw the waterfall I was 5 years old. My Aunt had just passed away and my parents and I were there for the funeral. This is my father’s country. My grandfather had large cotton farms and vineyards on the banks of the Orange river. I have always wanted to go back there. Even for nothing more than to find the places who’s names were scribbled on the back of my dads old photgraphs. I have questions and maybe Augrabies has some answers.
- Parys – With the Rand taking a nose dive my hopes of seeing Paris this year are drifting further and Further away. But so help me Yoda I will post and Instagram of me in Parys and I will call myself a Parysian.
- Port Nolloth – My family used to live here, briefly, before I was born. My mom speaks so fondly of this place there is just something drawing me to it. Perhaps I finally find a beach a really like (I know I know, I just don’t like beaches)
- Durban – I know the other 3 large cities in SA pretty well but I know very little about Durbs.(Can I call it Durbs? is it cool? or is it like when people call Joburg Jozi and you cringe a little) I want to get to know it a little. Where to eat, where to drink, where not to eat.
These 5 spots are ones I need to tick off my 2016 must-see-list. Whats on yours? And why do you want to go there?
*photos are not my own since I have not visited these locations. Except Durban. But my own photos of Durban sucked.
