Travel Photo of the Day (May 19)

During our stay in South Africa we only had a couple of days in Cape Town.  Our main purpose was to catch a World Cup match.  However, during our planning for the trip many people told us that we couldn’t leave Cape Town without visiting some of the wineries.  You don’t have to tell me twice.  This photo was taken from the van on our way up to Stellenbosch.  If you are in Cape Town, don’t miss out on this experience.  The scenery is wonderful and the wines were superb.

    Lovely picture capturing the low clouds.

  2. I love the contrast between the fields and the mountains! 🙂

    living in Cape Town one tends to get a bit blase about the scenery, wine farms etc.I must make a plan and go for a trip around the wine route soon. Glad you enjoyed yourself.
