"The best of the Blue Planet" mvtouring's Profile

Welcome to my world

It has been some time since I updated my profile, so here goes. I still live in the most beautiful country in the world and to top it all the most beautiful city in my country namely Cape Town. I lived in many areas of my country and started schooling in Namibia. I love to travel and experience the different things that other countries have to offer me, a passion that was installed by my parents. As a youngster, we went to various places for our vacations, but when we grew up, my dad made us promise him that we would see and get to know our own country before venturing outside of the borders.

For more info on my country, please visit my South African page which I am in the process of building. It is an ever growing page as I will be adding more and more info as I travel around my country. A work in progress it will remain.

Hiking trails

There are so many hiking trails in Cape Town and the surrounding area, that I think I must just dedicate a whole page to it. This picture was taken by my friends husband when they did one of the hikes on Table Mountain and had Campsbay underneath them.
