Unforgettable Moment #98

The indescribable beauty of Cape Town still lingers in our memories. As does the moving and emotional time we spent at the Apartheid Museum and Mandela’s infamous Robben Island Prison. South Africa is a land of remarkable contrasts and is capable of enchanting all her visitors. We feel under the spell, and can’t wait to return!
