19 Dock Rd, V & A Waterfront, Cape Town, 8001, South Africa

375 Albert Rd, Woodstock, Cape Town, 7915, South Africa
The Old Biscuit Mill is just that, an old biscuit mill. Found in the Woodstock neighborhood, the unassuming building that houses markets, office spaces, workshop and designer stores, farm stalls, and restaurants. Every Saturday, the Old Biscuit...
Llandudno, Cape Town, 7806, South Africa
Our favorite beach (one we never learned how to properly pronounce) was Llandudno Beach. A little bit off track and a little unclear if we were trespassing a private neighborhood, we drove on a narrow road between beautiful houses to gain entry to...
