To celebrate the new year, we took a quick trip through Cape Town – our first stop in Africa. We spent a few days exploring the city and spent a beautiful day wine tasting in South Africa’s Franschoek wine region. On New Year’s Eve, we rang in 2019 at a big celebration dancing the night away.
One of the most enlightening tours we have taken thus far was with a South African man named Ricky, a political prisoner during Apartheid who is now works as a tour guide and social worker for those in need. He showed us the town’s history of Apartheid while weaving in and sharing his own incredible life story. It was a deeply personal and moving account from someone directly affected by the brutality of Apartheid in South Africa. If you’re ever in Cape Town, we highly recommend taking his tour.
