Cape Town

Harbour Table Mountain

Cape Town

Cape Town was the first stop on my first round the world trip back in 2002. I went to South Africa first because I wanted to fulfil a lifelong dream of seeing Great White Sharks face to face; from the safety of a cage of course.


Trip date

July 2002


I took a very early digital camera with me to Cape Town; it was a little Minolta compact camera and had about 4 megapixels if I remember rightly. I’ve still got it somewhere.

This is the room I stayed in for a few nights.

Hotel Bedroom

Here’s the view from one side of the balcony. I remember sitting here having a fag (back in the days when I used to have the occasional ciggy) just drinking it all in.

After months of saving up and looking forward to this trip, I was finally here at the start of what was to be an amazing adventure.

A very cloudy table mountain visible from the other side of the balcony. I never actually got to go up the mountain because it remained incredibly cloudy the whole time I was there.

A very cloudy and moody Cape Town.

Wherever you are in Cape Town you can’t escape Table Mountain.
