We had to find out that it’s not so easy to climb up Cape Town’s most famous landmark. After a couple of unsuccessfull attempts (too hot, too windy, too dangerous) we decided to try it one last time. Third time lucky they say and we were lucky the third time. But instead of climbing up the mountain for 3 hours, we decided to take the cableway.
The drive was a true horror trip for me, as I am afraid if heights, but the views made up for all horrors I felt! I could not tell where the sea ended and where the sky began. Everything was just so utterly infinite that I felt like I could just walk on the puffy white clouds straight to Antarctica. And while I am drowning in kitsch and memories here, I hope my camera could just capture bit of the lightness you feel up at 1.085 meteres for you.
By the way, here’ a little tip: Because weather is changing pretty fast in Cape Town, the cableway sometimes closes down during the day because of wind or clouds. So just check online if it’s open before you go there all the way for nothing.
A Day at the top
After walking around for hours in the National Park Table Mountain, where you can easily spend your whole day watching Dassies and crazy people risking their lives on the rocks for a perfect instagram picture, we had to go back to the town’s busy everyday life. You still feel pretty small there – but not as lightweighted and infinite as you feel on top of the mountain, protected by the blue sky and the clouds above you.
