We are back in the world of internet, so we’re catching up with some of our African adventures!
We started our worldwide trek with two weeks in the beautiful city of Cape Town, South Africa. With a photogenic curving coastline and a variety of activities to offer – from penguins and wine to hiking and history – we were excited for this first stop in a new continent.
One of the main attractions we were looking forward to was ascending the centerpiece of the city: Table Mountain. We were there long enough to climb it twice, and each was a unique experience. Which method would you prefer?
We’ve been on the road for two weeks now, and our first leg is drawing to a close. We’ll be sharing more posts on the beautiful city of Cape Town and the many amazing activities to do while visiting, but first, we wanted to address safety.

As I am writing this, we are two days out from getting on our first flight to Cape Town South Africa. It has been quite a scramble getting ready for this trip, and it feels like we will never be truly ready. From the packing to the planning, it has been a bit brutal at times. All the hard work is about to pay off. With three years in the making, we’ve finally begun our world trip! And this is where.
While leaving our jobs was terrifying enough, the thought of booking our first flight was equally, if not more scary. After much deliberation, we chose our starting point: South Africa. Now we just have to get there!
We have been looking at various flight options over the last several months, and have finally found the best option. By weighing flight times, baggage rules, and cost we are about to pull the trigger. This was our thought process before arriving at the final booking. With this first step, it will really feel real!
