Travel Review – An Unforgettable Trip to Cape Point, Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve

In October of last year I had one of the most invigorating and almost life-changing travel experiences – not abroad as you might expect but rather +/- 60 km south-west of my beloved home city of Cape Town – when I visited Cape Point.
