    Cape Town (and its surroundings) in three days and a 1000 impressions.

    After more than 24 hours of traveling between airports (Brussels-Madrid-Johannesburg-Cape Town), we finally arrived at CPT (Cape Town International Airport) around 5PM. Being August, thus South-African winter, the sun was already setting when we set off with our rental car towards our hostel in Cape Town’s Green Point.

Parents are worried about the safety and wellbeing of their children, which generally puts a large number of areas with extreme ends of climate out of the equation. Areas with political instability are also not considered anymore and there is one other factor to consider too. You have to make sure that the kids are always entertained. Otherwise it doesn’t take much for a trip which was expected to be fun to lose all its appeal. North America is brimming with great potential when it comes…
