I’ve been fortunate enough to have traveled to many different places in my lifetime, but never had I ever came across a place that I fell in love with instantaneously. Never had I ever been somewhere that made me rethink where I wanted to end up in life.
Not until Cape Town.
I’ve never felt more at home somewhere in my entire life including, strangely enough, my own home. Upon arriving in Cape Town, I suddenly had a clear picture of what I wanted my life to be like.
Being back in the United States, no matter how much I love my school, my friends, family and hometown, I can’t help but feel heartbroken from being apart from that city.
I didn’t even know it was possible to fall this much in love with a place and maybe it sounds crazy, but I know that this is where I want to spend the rest of my life.
I feel almost incapable of putting into words how much this place means to me, which isn’t really convenient when you are trying to write a blog post.
But luckily a picture is worth a thousand words, so here are just a few to show you exactly why your next family vacation should be to Cape Town, South Africa.
From the endless mountains, the deep blue ocean, the diverse and friendly people, Cape Town is one of the most unique and undeniably gorgeous places in the world.
And if I’m lucky, hopefully, I can one day call it home.
