Wheel of Excellence Experience

I left off my last post saying that I will write a separate blog post on what else I managed to do on Sunday. As I mentioned, we went for a morning hike which left me feeling with this incredible zest for life – a great way to start off a new week, I must say. After resting a bit to recuperate, the husband and I set off to the V&A Waterfront for a little date on the Wheel of Excellence. We bought a ticket off Groupon which gave us 50% off and since I always wanted to catch a ride on this beauty of a structure, we took advantage of the deal.

I know that going out these days, especially with the economical climate here in South Africa, can be really tough. Petrol is a big consideration where ever you want to go because it costs so darn much. But I refuse to accept this as an excuse to not be able to explore. I love adventure and it is my dream to travel more, which is why I am starting in my own city. Hopefully this will encourage you to get out more too, I tell you, it makes Mondays a lot less blue.

      What a lovely comment of encouragement. I truly appreciate it! We tend to take our surroundings for granted, and only wake up when we see tourists come from all over the world to visit our beautiful city. We should all be experiencing it first hand! Hope the wheel of excellence will be one to tick off the bucket list soon!! Xo 🙂

    Awesome pictures. Loving the little adventures that you and your husband go on. I agree with you when you say that you have to start with your own city and I must say Cape town is a rather beautiful city to start with.
