Cape Town, South Africa
Cape Town will forever hold a special place in my heart. My brother and I were planning where we wanted to go for our first international sibling trip and when I brought up South Africa, he quickly jumped on board. It is one of the most magical places I have ever been fortunate to visit and I know I will be back very soon.
We stayed at The Marley Hotel and if I could live there, I would. I recommend booking your reservation with the complimentary breakfast offer - it was to. die. for.
The Loading Bay
Harvest Cafe & Deli
Chef’s Warehouse and Canteen
La Belle Bistro & Bakery *my absolute favorite*
