I somehow missed the knowledge about Cape Town being the best place on earth, like literally.
My dad lives in Cape Town and has been living there for ages. I don't see much of him and haven't in my entire life. So I decided to visit him and get to see where he lives and wow this decision.
This place has everything. Like everything. Mountains, ocean and my favourite thing: the friends I've made here. The local people here are so warm and full of life - carefree. Life gives you a meaning here and the love you receive. I can't even describe it. With these people, the mountains and the ocean with you oh my gosh. You will not understand until you go there by yourself. I could go on about how amazing this place is.
Traveling abroad alone makes you vulnerable but also makes you fearless. You grow as a human being. You get to know sides of you which you didn't knew about. With all exploration in Cape Town, the coastline, the beaches, lunch in Camps Bay, road trips to Hermanus, Champans Peak Drive, nightlife in downtown, shopping in Waterfront and meeting all the local people has made it all worth.
Cape Town won my heart. One night I was at this birthday party and a german girl told me about inconsolable longing. It means "we know not what" - in other words it's a longing for something far away from our "home". This describes my feelings about Cape Town.
I've been thinking about myself as a person in Cape Town. I met some people who gave me life lessons and i met people who I can't imagine myself without now. I lived in a peaceful place where beauty is natural. People are happy with almost nothing and even though there materialistic goods there is nothing a place like Cape Town. You won't get me before you visit this place and spend time there.
I got peace here. My word is inconsolable longing about Cape Town and I wish I could show you the Cape Town I saw and not only the pictures on Instagram but really show the beauty, the conversations I had and the people I met. I can't wait to be back again in november. I wish we would watch Africa som more than a continent in help. They are growing and all is not broken and shit as we learn in here. There are places like South Africa which is fighting their battles and growing. It may be a third world country and they have a lot of issues but you cannot take the peace and beauty from them. I wish everyone would do them a favour and go visit this place which soon is my new home.
