Making memories in Yorkshire
I’m Gemma, a part time working mum to my little  adventure buddy and with another one on the way. I live in Skipton with my husband. We love walking, being outdoors, exploring our local area of Skipton and the Dales as well as holidaying as much as we can around the UK and abroad. When I’m not being mum or at work you will find me climbing up Embsay Crag with a bar of chocolate in hand!

48 hours in Cape Town

I’m throwing it back to 2014 here with my amazing memories of our honeymoon to South Africa. Having planned our entire wedding with military precision, when the fiancé suggested that he take care of the honeymoon I was reluctant, apprehensive and scared shitless of what I would end up with. But luckily (for him!) he is still the hubby so must have pulled off a pretty epic one.

He surprised me with a trip to South Africa and Mauritius! This consisted of a few nights in Cape Town, a 3-night safari topped off with a week’s all inclusive stay in Mauritius. All in, this trip had everything that I could have wanted so I knew he was a keeper!

This blog post will focus on the first part of our trip to Cape Town, the capital of South Africa. Renowned for its mild climate this coastal city has everything you would need in a holiday; pristine beaches, beautiful scenery, history, arts, unbelievably tasty fresh food and that air of luxury around everything. You get a lot for your money here. So you can afford to stay in those 5 star hotels, enjoy that top notch bottle of vino and have a private driver. That epic trip of a lifetime is well within reach which certainly makes you enjoy it that whole lot more if you aren’t watching the pennies.
