Se7en’s Neighborhood Walk Around Cape Town…

You know how we love traveling!!! And you know how a virtual world tour really gets us on our toes… so recently when Jojoebi was looking for photo walks from around the world we were happy to join in!!! We recently posted a walk around our neighborhood… but this post called for things a little wider than just our hood so you are getting a walk around our city…

Before we get going we thought the visiting world wanderers might want to take a look at two of our previous posts about living in Africa:

A now let’s begin our tour: Welcome to Cape Town…

A tour wouldn’t be complete without Table Mountain in it.

Cape Town has lots of very colorful streets…

And every couple of blocks there is a corner store…

There is a mix of modern and old buildings…

And a visit to our country wouldn’t be complete without meeting our national hero: Nelson Mandela…

My kids thought you would need to see the friendly Coke Crate man as well…

Otherwise you wanted to see a man-hole: outside our Aquarium…

And a post box…

And a play park… our favorite play park is Green Point Park, it is huge and free and friendly!!!

Public Transport… between our house and the beach is a railway line we have to cross, only the day we were there there were clearly no trains!!!

Something you will see a lot of in our city is street art… on every corner…

We love it!!!

And a view of our part of the city… and you can see that we don’t live right in the city center, we live just south of Cape Town half way between the mountain and the sea.

  1. The odds of us getting to come to your beautiful city are very slim … so I am always super excited when you bring your city to us!

    Love the coke man! And that park!

    Is the rest of the park like that?

  2. Beautiful! Very colorful and a great mixture of old, new, natural … I love it. Thank you for showing us around. 🙂

  3. Hi Eagle Nest Momma… Quite a few parks where we live in the South Peninsula have awesome jungle gyms like that but quite the best ones are at Green Point Park in the City – where it is huge… with a toddler jungle gym and a big kid jungly gym and we head there quite often for Sunday picnics – it is totally fab!!! If you scroll right down this post you can see more pics of the jungle gyms. Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a fun weekend!!!

  4. Hi Discovering Montessori… Cape Town is a brilliant place to visit, packed with wonderful things to do… heaps of free outings as well!!! So glad you enjoyed your virtual visit… Hope you have a fun weekend!!!

  5. Hi Melita!!! So good to meet you, I have visited so many fun places on this tour – it has really been fun!!! Cape Town really is a rainbow city, with a great mix of old and new… indoor and outdoor… and food of course, heaps of good food!!! Hope you have a lovely weekend!!!

  6. Those colourful houses are my favourite – they just look so inviting. Oh and how fabulous is that climbing frame, I’d want to climb it too 🙂

  7. Hay Love and Lollipops… Glad you liked the photographs!!! I so love taking photos around Cape Town… it really is one of the best places to live!!! Hope you have a fun weekend and find something warm to do!!!

  8. That Coke Crate man is amazing!! I’ve never seen it before. And the park looks amazing fun for children. Thanks for posting these!

  9. Hi Jojoebi, Happy Weekend to you!!! We do live in a colorful part of the world!!! Thank you so much for organizing this – it is totally cool, loving visiting around the world!!!

  10. I love the juxtaposition of Mr Mandela and the Coke Crate man 😀

    And that your play park is made of natural materials!

    What does the “VR” on the postbox stand for?

  11. Hi Dawn, Yes Mr Mandela and the Coke crate man are right alongside each other!!! And we do have some really fabulous play parks – getting better and more exciting all the time!!! That post box is in a very old part of town and the V R could well be for Royal Mail and I am guessing Queen Victoria, one hundred years ago, back at the turn of the previous century when that part of town would have been established and used as a holiday spot!!! Somethings don’t change it is still a fabulous holiday spot!!! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great week!!!

  12. I love those beaded costume jewellery! Are they difficult to made?
    Your town is often background for photo-shootings for clothes here in europe, no wonder with this colourful houses.
