Neighbourhoods in Cape Town
Not familiar with Cape Town? No worries! In Cape Town, almost everything is extremely beautiful. There are lots of different neighbourhoods, all with a different vibe. It all depends on where you feel at ease! Gardens is green, hip and within walking distance from the city centre. A very good area to live in! A fun place to visit is Observatory, where there’s a good blend of locals and students. Most people here walk around barefoot and there are loads of cool, tropical bars. Woodstock is very artsy: you can have amazing breakfasts and lunches there and buy all sorts of crafty items. A little bit more low-key, a little bit hippie: no one’s surprised when you walk around in a bikini top and shorts in this area. Sea Point and Clifton Beach are pretty beach neighbourhoods, home to a sociable beach atmosphere, looking out over the mountains!

Speculative Societies (translation)

Speculative Societies (translation)

“What if nature no longer exists?” Asking questions like these, we’ve arrived on fascinating territory. A new area where reality and impossibilities come together. In this place, we allow all of our fantasies, dreams or fears to roam free. In this place, we cross the border into the unknown.

It’s in this place we can discuss the future before it has become our reality, and it’s here we can focus on the prospects of the future we long for – and avoid the ones that scare us.

TIPS FOR 20SOME’S: CREATE A WORK EXPERIENCE (TwentySomeTraveller)

So, while you’re busy not knowing what to do with your life, try doing that some place else. It might offer some perspective.

Last March (2013) I went to Los Angeles for a month. I had just graduated, it was a super cold winter and I wanted to experience a new (and warmer) environment. Also, I craved to see whether all stereotypes concerning L.A. were true..

Capetown Conversations (TwentySomeTraveller)

Capetown Conversations (TwentySomeTraveller)

Floating high above my holiday wish list is Cape Town, South Africa. This has grown more urgent in the past few years due to an increasing amount of friends on Facebook visiting the city, for travel but also for living and working there. I saw the pictures, read the amazing stories and felt like this city built itself up almost unrealistically in my mind. The nature, the food, the sun, the sea, the fun language and the immense diversity of culture and people. I’ve been trying to go, to find a way to go, each year for a couple of years now but it always fails.

Whenever I talked to my boyfriend about this matter, he would flinch and call Cape Town the city “where most tourists are murdered”. I am too naïve to believe this sort of talk and frankly, I don’t want to be scared to go anywhere – cause anything can happen at any time and I don’t want to feel like I have to live in fear somewhere. Lots of girls my age went to and returned from Cape Town. Last week I had a conversation about this with a friend of mine who spent a few months in the city, as I shared my idea of working on an organic farm there (Wwoof – more about this later). Her face changed a little and she replied she didn’t quite know if that would be a good idea.
