Sometimes all you want to do is just get away, to just get into your car and get the open road and head towards seeing something beautiful.


I live in Cape Town and if you’ve been here before, you know there is no shortage of beautiful sights to see, and one of my favourites has to be watching the sunset over the ocean; usually enjoyed at the end of a hike, but this time I took the easy way to the top and drove out to watch the city lights come on (it was too cloudy to watch the sunset). signal hill cape town south africa (2)

Signal Hill is where I drove to, a popular viewing point here in the Cape, which gives you stunning views of the ocean, Sea Point area and the city.


I enjoy the city view most after the sun has set, I sit there and watch as the city lights come on and just let my mind wander, thinking about life, and all that’s happening in it; it’s a great way for me to clear my mind. signal hill cape town south africa (1)

We all have things we do to keep us at peace and sane… that is a glimpse into one of the things I do, at one of my favourite places found in the country so far.
