With a little over a month until our wedding, Will and I are also counting down the days until our honeymoon two weeks after! We knew that we wanted to travel as far away as possible given that it will likely be a long time until we’re both able to take two weeks off from work, so we instantly narrowed it down to Africa and Australia. Then we were at our friends Douglas and Mia’s wedding in Ojai last summer and our friends Zach and Parker were raving about their third (!) trip to Africa and I was so riveted I wanted to pull out my phone and start taking notes on all their recommendations. So Africa it is! To say we’re excited is the understatement of the millennium. 🙂
We are starting our trip in South Africa with four days in Cape Town and I’ve been researching like crazy. There is so much we want to squeeze into our time there, from climbing Table Mountain and seeing the penguins on Boulders Beach to sampling some of the many fabulous restaurants and making a day trip to the vineyards in either Franschhoek or Stellenbosch. We are staying at Ellerman House and of course I’ve already started my own city map to plan out each of our days! And since I know you’re a well-traveled bunch, I’d love to hear from any of you who have been to Cape Town as we continue planning our trip!
