What I in fact did in Capetown for 6 months. South Africa Episode 24

(filmed over a yr back)

Even with all my frustrations and mechanical concerns, I did have loads of entertaining way too. I received to consider Paragliding for the to start with time ever, and that was this kind of a cool working experience! A Large many thanks to Michael Muldoon
( ) For an extraordinary working experience paragliding !
I liked it so much, that I preferred to shock Hanlie and choose her way too! I also received to do the desk top mountain hike- which was 9 hrs prolonged and so intensive- but SO Beautiful! And this was suitable in the coronary heart of Cape town!
Initially, I planned to be in Cape town for only one week, and I finished up paying 6 months there! I managed to do a couple trial excursions all over the location, but most of my time was used in Cape town at the Reinecke Family members household. The best component- Receiving invited to all of the loved ones features and festivities. I truly felt welcomed and like a single of the loved ones. It was truly neat to see in fact. Remaining Canadian and not getting much for cultural traditions, it was gorgeous to see the ways of the Afrikaans persons. Braais ( BBQ’s) are a huge detail for them there. Most priviledged family members have crafted in stone Braai’s in their household. And Meat is a big component of their food plan. Large gatherings took place on a weekly basis and there was normally an abundance of food stuff ( mostly meat) a regular movement of wine and whiskey ( produced regionally) And there is Normally stay tunes and dancing! It was truly excellent to hear Maruis communicate about the heritage of his loved ones. The place they came from, and how they did factors in the more mature generations. It was good to see these factors nonetheless prevelent in their present lives. Most of the meat we ate was caught in the wild by by themselves or buddies. Household values are huge in the Afrikaans tradition and it was so attractive to see the connection and bond involving everyone. A huge substantial thank you and tons of Enjoy to my South African loved ones, and all my gorgeous new buddies I will under no circumstances neglect and who produced my time there so specific and unforgettable.

  1. Hey Friends !! Sorry its taken so long for a new video. As usual, my life has become hectic and things fell behind again. Stay tuned on my IG for all up to date adventures!! I Recently participated in the KTM rally !!!!! ( se my IG highights for a little teaser) lots of great videos made, and I can't wait to share those – but first… I have to finish my SA series!!! Here's a small recap of the fun things I got to do in Cape town while I was there in between the mechanical madness I had to deal with. These wonderful people really made my time there special. Being from Canada with no cultural fmaily traditions, it was really nice to see the Afrikaans way. The music, the food, the gatherings and general connection between everyone. It's something I never had the priviledge of growing up and was such a treat to be a part of and experience. So much Gratitude and Love to my South African family and all my new friends who have a special place in my heart and really made my experience there. I will never forget you all!
    Stay tuned for my next episode- coming in a FEW DAYS … I FINALLY leave Cape town and head east on the BIG ADVENTURE !!!!

  2. HELL YEAH!! Good session at the gym, tasty breakfast, sitting down with my strawberry banana smoothie… AND NEW ROSIE VIDEO!! WOOHOO!!! Best Friday morning evar!!

  3. It looks like the enjoyment you gained from your SA family outweighed the crap you had to deal with, thanks to a bad motorcycle dealership. That looked like it was all so much fun. I look forward to your next posting.

  4. I did a tandem paraglide in Austria just a few weeks ago, was awesome, and surprisingly scary at the start. Mind you, that's partly because the ..pilot? said "I'm having a bit of a problem" and seemed to be wrestling with something. These are not the words you want to hear when you just soared a few hundred feet above rocks! Turned out he was just struggling to get his gopro stick out of his pack. The flight went well, and we glided on the updrafts for ages. Can recommend it, if going to Austria head for the Stubai valley area.
