Our country is filled with beautiful cities and destinations boasting an array of attractions. Many of us think that places like the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town are mere tourist attractions, with only the elite taking frequent trips there and us ‘regular’ people rarely heading in that direction.
I spent a Sunday morning on route to the harbour commuting via train and then taking a brisk walk from the station, something which cost me nothing as I already have a monthly ticket.
I took in the fresh air and admired the vessels at sea, and popped into a little book store where I browsed through titles on sale. After looking around and observing people, I got some lunch from one of the stores and had a bight to eat on a bench overlooking blue waters.
I returned home refreshed and and reminded of the little things that make life beautiful, like seeing an old lady enjoy herself on a carousel or a little boy have an ice cream for the first time.
Go out, experience your city!
