Destination Wish

I'll start this post with a series of Destinations that will continue in my blog that are on my wish list. Being born and raised in beautiful South Africa and now living in Toronto, Canada -  I often dream of visiting  beautiful places by the ocean, and high on my list is Africa/South Africa. Give me the sun and warmth, history and culture and I'm on board.

I'll start with a place right from my home town. Cape Town - A True Gem
