Memories, maybe of 1998, ready for 2017
Walking tour of city (historic), city hall, parliament, Company gardens, slave lodge then more walking by ourselves. CBD is not that inviting, but wandering the surrounds along Long St and into the coloured houses area of Bo Kaap was quite pleasant. Treated ourselves to a very nice dinner at the Harbour House. Back Australia tomorrow.
ICP Convention in a great location of the Waterfront. Learning and leisure. Ferris wheel today😀
Up for coffee at 6, then off for another 2 hours driving around Inverdoorn Safari Park. Saw a few animals we didn't see yesterday. Back, breakfast and gone by 10am back to CT with spectacular mountain scenery along the way. arrived at very nice guest house, Atholl House via Bokaap (streets of coloured houses). It was such a beautiful day we decided to hike up Lions Head. We didn't make it right to the top but ''twas a far effort for Kathy and me. Some paths that were no o easy for us old farts! It was a 3 1/2 hour hike up a mountain from Atholl House. The views from up there were pretty special!
Cape Tour today, via Cliftons, Camps Bay and into the National Park for some great scenery. Walked to Lighthouse at Cape Point where Kathy made friends with a local. Then back down for a short drive followed by the obligatory photo at C of GH. Back to Cape Town via Simons Town, (lunch and penguins) then the beautiful Kirstenbosch Gardens at the foot of table mountain. What a magnificent setting.
Transit time from Cairns 33 hours, but flights smooth, luggage here and all is good. Arrived at hotel 6:30 ish, freshened up and walked down the road to a great , and I mean up there with the best, Italian restaurant. Back early needing to get some sleep, and off to explore CT tomorrow.
Late Telly and then taxi ride to cable car up to Lykavittos Hill overlooking most of Athens. Great spot for
Home stretch bus trip to Athens
Day trip to Phillipi from Thessaloniki. Spent time in Ancient Phillipi (theatre, basilica, agora, Octagon, bishop's house etc) recounting the events surrounding Paul in that place, including the Church of St Lydia, with all it's beautiful icons.
