Last Week In Instagram Pictures

I was pretty much absent on the blogging front last week. Roll-call would have come up with silence. I was taking photos though so that I’d be able to report back to you that last week consisted of a wonderful trip to Cape Town. For work, off course. Any trip to Cape Town, even a work one is pleasant because, well, Cape Town. I have proof of this assertion…in the photos below. Take a look…

As the plane came in to land this is what greeted me. As you can see it was breathtaking so much so that I quickly switched on my phone to capture it before landing. How gorgeous is that?

Then this was the view that greeted me when I woke up the next morning.

And on my return to the Airbnb from a yummy food outing this is what I found.

And a couple more pics before driving to the airport to catch the plane back home to Jhb.

It was a beautiful and cold day in #capetown today

And this one too.

This cape is the most stately thing and the fairest cape we saw in the whole circumference of the earth. – From the journal of Sir Francis Drake, on seeing the Cape for the first time, 1580.

Moodiness And Mystery

I’ve spent the better part of 24 hours travelling and feel knackered. I’m off to bed now, but not before I post a photo or two which I took today.

Travel inventory:

  • 11 hr flight to Munich – a good flight, I was impressed with SAA. The food was superb!
  • 6 hr high speed train to Berlin – what a lovely ride! The Bavarian countryside put on its best moody look, with wisps of mist in the distance, its manicured fields and dense forests adding to the mysterious ambience outside the train window.

I’m sharing with you these photos I took from the moving train. It’s a bit blurry on the edges and you can see what I mean about the moodiness and mystery of the Bavarian countryside.

Which one best depicts the moodiness and mystery – the colour photo or the black and white one?
